For me, watching the NBA All-Star selection show on TNT has become a favorite pastime. I find it intriguing how Sir Charles Barkley, Kenny “The Jet” Smith, Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and Co. break down who made the cut. I am especially enthused by when they discuss who deserved to make the team and who did not.
The following list is not a who’s who of perennial All-Stars but they are players which I can see making the team next season. For one reason or another, these six players will have the spotlight on them in some capacity.
It is not completely inconceivable to think that either or all of these players could make the All-Star team for the first time in their career.
