The NBA All-Star Weekend is going to start tomorrow in New Orleans. It is really entertaining to watch and many people even if you are not a complete basketball fan enjoy watching it. With each event that is happening over the weekend I will give you a prediction on who I think will win. You should tune in over the weekend and watch the All-Star game, you will enjoy it. So here are my predictions:
The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game – This is the first game to start the NBA All-Star weekend. It consists of celebrities from film, music, television and sports. This is hard to predict due to being a range of different celebrities from different areas. So I will not be predicting this as it is hard to predict.
BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge – This is where it is the battle of the newer players in the NBA. It will consist of 10 first year and 10 second year players for the U.S team and the World Team. Based on the rosters my prediction is: Team World led by Kristaps Porzingis to win over Team U.S. It will definitely be a fun and interesting matchup with the younger guys in the league. It will be a close game as both rosters have some solid players.
Taco Bell Skills Challenge – This consists of 4 big guys and 4 small guys and they are competing to determine who has the best skills. Out of the 8 contestants I will predict guard John Wall to win. While there are great bigs and other smaller guys I think John Wall will end up coming on top.
JBL Three-Point Contest – Out of the 8 players in the three point contest my prediction is the defending champion of last year Klay Thompson. He is the most consistent especially when open at 3 point shoots compared to his competition although it is a very tough competition he has to compete against.
Verizon Slam Dunk – Out of the 4 players in the slam dunk contest it will be a close call between last years runner up Aaron Gordon and DeAndre Jordan. But my prediction is DeAndre Jordan. I believe he will come up with sweet moves which will blow the judges away.
66th NBA All-Star Game – This is the game many people enjoy and will watch and out of all the previous game the west has always been the stronger team and as it shows from the standings the west has stronger teams with great players and therefore my prediction for this year is the West to win this years All-Star game. It will be very entertaining to watch and I cannot wait.
