NBA All-Star Predictions: 7th Update

Last week the NBA announced the NBA All-Star starters and Captains and the Conferences went as follows:

Based off of these results, Marcus takes a slight lead in the standings, with both captains correct and 9 out of 10 starters correct. Pup and myself trail by 2 points with both captains correct and 8 out of 10 starters correct. 

Everyone got PG13 wrong.  We all had Anthony Davis in that spot and after seeing the final voting results, those two ended up in a tie (tie breaker goes to fan vote which PG13 had a slight lead in).  Interesting that right after losing a tie breaker because of fan vote, AD announced he wants to be traded (most likely to a larger market team that’s ready to win).

I incorrectly had Westbrook over Curry and Pup had Simmons over Kemba (Ben got dogged in the player’s voting).

  • Marcus: 21 points
  • HurriKahane: 19 points
  • Pup: 19 points

With the All-Star reserves getting announced Thursday night, let’s get to our final update (names in red are incorrect picks that are locked in as wrong):
