With the NBA Allstar weekend well on its way with the Allstar celebrity game and Team USA vs Team World already complete we just wanted to throw our predictions the rest of the events still yet to come on this weekend of basketball.
I’m predicting a close contest with the 3 point contest but entirely it will be between either Paul George, Klay Thompson (2016 Champion) or Bradley Beal. All dependent on if they catch early form on there shots they have shown their consistency throughout the season with their 3pt FG% being 43.2 %, 45.4%, 37% respectively. My prediction on who the winner will be is Klay Thompson.
With the dunk contest it will be even more tougher to predict as it will based on what type of dunks each participant does, but based on the constant highlight reels that have been playing over all social media platforms this season, the stand out two have to be Larry Nance Jr or Donovan Mitchell as they have been the ones currently in form with in-game dunks and have been astonishing to say the least. My predicted winner is Donovan Mitchell because of the different complexity of dunks he will be bringing.
The skills challenge is going to test a players ability to dribble the quickest, make an accurate pass, complete a lay up or dunk and finally hit a three pointer. With these challenges set I think there will be a final between Joel Embiid and Lou Williams with the winner begin Lou Williams.
Finally but not least the main event of the All star weekend, the Allstar game between Team Curry vs Team Lebron will be a exciting game throughout with some crazy shots and dunks being carried out throughout the game. It has been predicted that Team Lebron’s team is stronger but with season ending injuries to Demarcus Cousins and Kristaps Porzingis, I think team Curry with the youthful Giannis Antetokounmpo and amazing season James Harden is having will come out as winner with Giannis Antetokounmpo being the MVP of the game.
