One of the most exciting times of the NBA season is All-Star Weekend—from the Slam Dunk Contest to the game itself.
Say what you want about the NBA All-Star Game being a glorified pickup game, for this year's festivities are going to usher in the new generation of talent.
Some of the younger players in the NBA haven't been in the league for long, but their talents are unquestionable. They continue to improve year in and year out, and for those who are still just making their mark in the league, they too are destined to get better and better.
The 2013 All-Star season is bound to be different from the others.
While the elder statesmen will surely be represented, the upcoming season's All-Star festivities will feature a fresh and younger generation of stars.
Starting this season, these select players will be the beginning of that trend.
