Starters & Predictions
This year the West Coast is being led by Golden State coach Steve Kerr and will have the following players starting for them: Stephen Curry (Golden State), Demarcus Cousins (Sacramento)- who’s filling in for an injured Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers), Anthony Davis (New Orleans), Marc Gasol (Memphis) and Damian Lillard (Portland) who is replacing the injured Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers).
The East Coast is led by Mike Budenholzer, Atlanta’s head coach. The East Coast starters are: Carmelo Anthony (New York), Pau Gasol (Chicago), LeBron James (Cleveland), Kyle Lowry (Toronto) & John Wall (Washington).
With the West Coasts explosive line-up and the overall relaxed atmosphere of these games I expect the West Coast to win 165-140. I also predict Curry, with his MVP type season so far, will be MVP here too and put on quite a show.
