When you run across NBA All-Star predictions in August, they often come with the tagline that "it's never too early" to look ahead.

I think we can all be honest with each other and agree that it is, in fact, way too early to be thinking about who'll suit up for the Eastern and Western Conferences in Brooklyn next February. But let's also be honest about a couple of other things: It's August, and we're all starving for NBA basketball.

With training camp still over a month away, we've got to do something to scratch the hoops itch—even if that something is a six-month look-ahead to an exhibition game that has no real bearing on the NBA season. Such is our shared thirst during these dog days.

Old favorites will return, young guns will ascend and, of course, there'll be a bevy of pandemonium-inducing snubs that galvanize fanbases and bring forth the inevitable bandying about of the "hater" label.

Something nobody can hate: Anthony Davis is starting the 2015 All-Star Game. There will be no debate on that topic, but others will surely brook argument.
