Pacific Division All-Stars
To get into the All-Star festivities, we have adopted a different format for the main event. We have an All-Star lineup for each NBA division.
PG: LeBron James
It’s simply incredible what LeBron James is doing at 35 years old. Bron is still feasting on the poor souls around the league, averaging 24.8 points (13th in the NBA), a league-leading 10.7 assists, and 7.7 rebounds (26th) per game. The man can play any position on the court - he’ll run point here. All hail the King!
SG: Devin Booker
It’s very unfortunate that Booker is an All-Star snub this season, but not here. Booker is scoring 26.4 points per game with 6.3 assists to boot. More importantly, he enjoys taking over at the ends of games - he’s 15th in fourth quarter scoring. Book it!
SF: Paul George
George has missed a fair chunk of time this season, but what he’s accomplished this season is still impressive. He’s averaging 22.6 points per game with a respectable 21.35 PER.
PF: Kawhi Leonard
Kawhi’s 27.1 points per game are good for 7th in the NBA; his 26.83 PER is good for 6th.
Leonard’s great on both sides of the ball, and he’s a thief on defense with 1.9 steals per game. Leonard is the exact type of player you want on your team down the stretch, and his poker face just makes him that much more appealing.
C: Anthony Davis
Anthony set out to prove he’s an elite player this season. He’s done exactly that. Davis is one of the best teams in the entire league, playing next to LeBron and his stats haven’t really taken a hit. AD is averaging 26.5 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks a night. Throw in a monstrous 28.43 PER, and we’re reminded we need to fear the Brow!
Summary: The Pacific will come to win
Everything about this lineup says All-Star. It’s got championship-level talent with a few young guns waiting in the wing. The Pacific isn’t messing around
