This is more than just an exhibition game. It is a game that shows the direction where the NBA championship is heading. East meets West for more than bragging rights. It is about who the outstanding players of the season thus far are and who needs to up their game. Kevin Durant and LeBron James took the most votes so they were asked to pick the remainder of their teammates. Durant of the Brooklyn Nets chose Kyrie Irving, Joe Embiid,Kawhi Leonard, Bradley Beal and Jason Tatum for the East. Bradley Beal looks like the Mack of the Pack for team Durant. He is the leading points scorer in the NBA with 1053 for the Washington Wizards. Kawhi is one of the best all round players in the league. The only criticism for Durant’s selection is that he has chosen a lot of his Nets team mates going with familiarity rather than adventure it seems.
LeBron has gone for Giannis Antetokounmpo(Bucks) probably for his rebound getting ability(he is averaging 11.4 this season), Stephen Curry(Warriors) the best three point shooter in the NBA, Luca Doncic(Mavs), Nikola Jokic(Nuggets) as starters in a team laden with shooters. Surprised James Harden and Donovan Mitchell failed to make the starters for Durant’s team. The match will be at the State Farm Arena, Atlanta, Georgia USA on 07 March 2021.
