LeBron James

The 38 year-old and Four-time NBA Champion from the Los Angeles Lakers will surely make his 19th appearance in the All-Star Game as he is the current leader in the All-Star fan voting despite the struggle of his team and the emergence of new players. He is averaging 29 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 6.8 assists to lead his team to a 19-23 record, 13th in Western Conference. For NBA All star weekend updates here!

For the 72nd All-Star, which will be held in Utah. If LeBron remains consistent and remains on the top of the voting ladder, for the fourth time, he will be the team captain of an All-Star team.

Jayson Tatum

The Boston Celtics Forward is currently experiencing one-heck of a season as he is leading the Boston Celtics to a 32-12 record, top in the Eastern Conference, and current best record in the NBA. Jayson Tatum is now averaging 30.6 points, eight rebounds, and four assists a game. He is poised to make fifth straight All-Star game appearance and will likely dominate this annual exhibition game and win his first All-Star MVP. Through his five year career so far in the NBA, he led the Boston Celtics to series of deep playoffs runs, including the 2018 where they met LeBron James and the Cavs, in 2020 East finals where they faces Miami Heat and Jimmy Butler, last season, he lead Boston Celtics to first finals in 12 years but fell short from the hands of the eventual Champion Golden State Warriors.

Luka Doncic

The 23 year-old from Slovenia and the star for Dallas Mavericks is having a greatest season so far in his career as he is also making a strong contention for the coveted NBA MVP, just lagging behind his fellow European Nikola Jokic. He is averaging a career high 33.8 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game leading the Dallas Mavericks to 24-20 and fifth in the West. This upcoming All-Star Game will be the fourth appearance for the Slovenian Freak and another opportunity to showcase his dominance and take home the all-star MVP.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

The Greek Freak is continuing his winning ways for the Milwaukee Bucks, after leading this team to a 2021 NBA Champion. He is putting his best 31 points, 11.9 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game and has been putting on a scoring clinic with his 55 points performance against Wizards, 45 points against Bulls, and 43 against Timberwolves. If remain consistent, there will be a huge chance that he will win an NBA All-Star MVP behind LeBron James, Jayson Tatum, and Luka Doncic.

Nikola Jokic

The Two-time NBA MVP and the leader for 2022-2023 NBA MVP is poised to make his All-Star a memorable one for the year 2023. He is currently averaging 24.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 9.7 assists per game. Flirting with triple-double numbers while leading the Denver Nuggets to top the very competitive Western Conference with a 29-13 record on a five-game winning streak. If he translated this monstrous output to an all-star game, he will likely take the NBA All-Star MVP to add on his accolades.
