6 Young NBA Stars Guaranteed to Make Their First All-Star Team in 2013
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

NBA All-Star Weekend is a little over a month away, and chances are the fans will see the regulars suit up. Yes, guys like Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James are fun to watch, but they've already established themselves as true All-Stars. More often than not, they overshadow the younger talents who really blow our minds.

Nothing against the superstars, but some of the young guns this season have been absolutely amazing. Kyrie Irving (pictured) has picked up right where he left off last season, and is thriving as a phenomenal scoring point guard destined to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers back to the postseason. Down south, Josh Smith continues to be electrifying in Atlanta.

Granted, only a small handful of spots are available on each All-Star team, but to stack each side with superstars just doesn't seem right. So many young players are just as good, if not better, than the established top dogs, and some will definitely get their small moment in the sun this season.
