James Jones

Ryan Anderson

Mario Chalmers

Joe Johnson

Anthony Morrow

Kevin Love



Anthony Morrow is an absolute marksman from long range. He's made 44.2 percent of his shots from deep over his career and found a niche in this league as a sniper. 

Look for him to outshoot the competition easily in this contest. 


Slam Dunk Contest

Iman Shumpert

Chase Budinger

Paul George

Derrick Williams



Chase Budinger will throw down the nastiest dunk, but Iman Shumpert will win with the new format.

Fans vote and there is only one round, plus Shump has Jeremy Lin on his side. 

There's no way he loses unless he completely misses his jam.

MarShon Brooks

John Wall

Gordon Hayward

Kawhi Leonard

Evan Turner



Maurice Cheeks, Mike Fratello, Charles Barkley



It's going to be an epic game, but Team Chuck will win because of one man; John Wall. 

He was spurned and selected after Kyrie Irving, Ricky Rubio and Jeremy Lin as a point guard.

Last year, he put up 22 assists in this game and absolutely dominated it, expect no less in this game.
