Eastbay Athletes In The All-Star Game

The NBA All-Star Game is one of the greatest showcases in the sports world. The game’s best athletes put on a jaw-dropping show that includes a 3-point barrage, incredible passes, and huge dunks. Eastbay athletes strive to reach the big stage, and ten of our cover athletes were selected to participate in this year’s All-Star Game. Here’s a closer look:

LeBron James

King James is no stranger to the All-Star Game as he will be making his 13th straight appearance in the game and has been the game’s MVP twice.  James earned his place in this year’s game with nearly 26 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds per game.

Kyrie Irving

LeBron will be joined by his Cleveland teammate Kyrie Irving, who is making his fourth All-Star Game appearance. Irving’s play jumped to another level during last year’s playoffs, and he’s picked up right where he left off this season with 24 points, six assists and three rebounds per game this season.

Stephen Curry

Golden State’s roster is more stacked than ever, but Stephen Curry’s play continues to amaze fans and opponents alike. As a key part in a deadly offense, Curry is averaging nearly 25 points, six assists, and four rebounds per game for the league’s top team.

Kevin Durant

Golden State’s newest Warrior has had no problem adjusting to his new team this season. Adding a whole new dimension to the Warrior’s offensive attack, KD’s averaging almost 26 points, eight rebounds, and five assists per contest.

Draymond Green

Draymond’s stats aren’t as gaudy as some other superstars, but he’s the glue that holds together one the league’s marquee teams. Green does a little bit of everything for the Warriors with 10 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and one-and-a-half blocks per game.

James Harden

Harden has exploded this season after taking over the point guard role for one of the league’s most improved teams. Harden’s always been a scoring threat, but in his new role his assist numbers are even more impressive. The MVP candidate is averaging 29 points, 11 assists, and eight rebounds per contest.

Russell Westbrook

Mr. Triple Double has had one of the best seasons in NBA history so far with 31 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds per game. Russ has been on a tear all season and after being snubbed a starting spot in the All-Star Game, it’s likely that he’ll make some noise off the bench this weekend.

Paul George

Nike’s newest signature athlete is having another strong season for Indiana with 22 points, six rebounds and three assists per game. Getting your first signature shoe and your fourth All-Star appearance in the same season? Not bad, PG.

Anthony Davis

The Brow is having another monster year. Arguably the game’s best big man, AD is averaging nearly 28 points, 12 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game. It’s his fourth straight All-Star Game appearance, and at only 23 years old, he’ll likely be playing in this game for the next decade or so.

John Wall

John Wall will appear in his fourth straight All-Star Game this weekend. The point guard is putting up nearly 23 points, 11 assists, and 5 rebounds per game for one of the Eastern Conference’s best team. Wall’s flashy style of play is perfect for the All-Star Game, so expect some highlights from the former Wildcat.

Congrats to all of our cover athletes and good luck in the All-Star Game! Who do you have winning MVP honors this weekend? Let us know in the comments!
