Aspect 1: What kind of sparks can James and Curry make?
James finally teamed up with Curry. The two played against each other in the Finals many times as opponents. It was the first time as teammates, but in the All-Stars. It is well known that Curry likes to dunk at the All Ming Games. With James' passing skills, it is estimated that Curry's wish will be well realized.
Highlight 2: The Three Nets Brothers
Durant was unable to play in the All-Star Game due to injuries, but this time Durant put two good brothersThe younger brother Irving and Harden both picked their own teams. In the Nets games, Harden and Irving can be seen many times in the subtle cooperation, but due to the intensity of the game, the success rate is not high. In the All-Star Game, the defensive intensity will not be too strong, what kind of visual experience Harden and Irving can give us, we can look forward to it.
Aspect 3: Can the All-Star Game contribute to a dunk feast
This year's Durant team has three strong dunkers, Zion, LaVine, and Mitchell, as well as two passing masters, Paul and Harden. When it comes to this, everyone will understand.
Zion became famous when he was young, his best physical fitness, the best dunk was liked by many friends, this year Zion also refused the invitation of the All-Star Dunk Contest, which is somewhat regrettable, but to be honest, this year's all obvious contest It's somewhat starry.
Highlight 4: Team LeBron vs. Durant: All-around Fighter vs. Scoring Machine
LeBron and Durant’s lineups have distinct characteristics. Among the top nine players in the triple-double this season, seven have been selected to the All-Stars, and six of these seven players are on the LeBron team. They are Jokic, Doncic, Antetokounmpo, Ben Simmons, Sabonis Jr. and Old Jan himself, the only one in the Durant team among the seven is Harden.
"I just want to choose players who can help each other in the game." James said.
Judging from the paper lineup, Durant’s scoring ability is very strong. Bill and Embiid are ranked first and second in scoring this season. LaVine and Irving are also in the top ten in scoring. Harden After joining the Nets, he focused on organizing offenses, but the offensive power of the three consecutive scoring champions is still there, and the trigger can be pulled at any time. Zion averaged 19.3 points per game in the penalty area this season, leading the league. Durant has a luxurious configuration regardless of whether it is singled out or rushed to the inside.
ESPN compared the data of LeBron and Durant players this season. Without calculating Durant's data (Adu missed the All-Star due to injury), LeBron had rebounds, assists, and blocks. , Steals, field goal percentage, number of dunks and efficiency value. Durant team leads in scoring and three-point shooting, but the problem is that even if they compete for three-pointers, the strength of LeBron's team should not be underestimated. Once Curry and Lillard entered the rhythm, the three-point firepower was like a downpour.
Starting in 2018, the league has adopted the captain selection model to play the All-Star team. LeBron has won for three consecutive years. James really has a vision for team formation.
"We are just going to play in the right way," James said. "This is an All-Star game, so there will be some entertainment scenes, but the theme of the game is still the right way to win."
The Jazz currently has the first record in the league, but in this selection, the Jazz’s two players, Mitchell and Gobert, were not selected until the last two. The host and NBA star Barkley believes this situation is for The Jazz is disrespectful. Barkley also questioned James' choice: "LeBron said he needed height, and then he could choose a higher Gobert, but he took off Sabonis Jr."
James explained this. "We don't disrespect the Jazz. Everyone needs to understand. It's like playing video games when we were young. We never chose the Jazz. Even though the Jazz had great Malone and Stockton back then, we would not choose them." James Say.
