Aside from the Olympics and the FIBA World Cup, the NBA All-Star Game is the only place you can see players like LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony showcasing their skills on the same stage at the same time.
The 2014 exhibition is going to feature both superstars and promising up-and-comers, but the question is: Who is the best player on the court?
For the purpose of this assignment, we're looking at the 2013-14 season and nothing else. Tony Parker may be closer to a lifetime achievement award than Damian Lillard, but there's a reason the league chose the Portland Trail Blazers point guard to participate in all five All-Star events.
Each and every player on this list deserves to be an All-Star, but as you might imagine, some are simply more deserving than others.
All statistics, standings and rankings are accurate as of Feb. 13.
Inactive players will be left off the list (sorry, Kobe: that means you).
