Golden State Warriors: Looking for the Promised All-Star

The season was 1997 when the Warriors last enjoyed having a representative play in the NBA All-Star Game, and Latrell Sprewell earned the honor.  Fifteen years later, and not one Warrior has played in the Sunday game.

Joe Lacob made a promise last year that the Warriors would have a winning record and have the team’s first All-Star under his ownership.  Neither of those happened, but in a year’s time, the team is well equipped to have one of its developing stars get the elusive nod.

This year there are no promises, only that the Warriors are looking like a team that can contend for a playoff spot.  Let’s go a little deeper here.  I know it’s the offseason, but does any Warrior have a realistic shot?

Players who play on the bench won’t factor into this report and the only rookie with much of a shot is Harrison Barnes.  Since the last “true” rookie to make the All-Star Game was Tim Duncan in 1998 and Barnes is a Warrior, I don’t give him much of a chance.

So that narrows down the Warriors hopes to Andrew Bogut, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and David Lee.  I will look at each player’s chances by their ability and by who represented the Western Conference last year at that position.
