With all-star voting now open, there's never been a better time to predict this year's all-stars. In these selections winning played a role, but an individual's play was far more important. Predicting who will be an East All-Star starter may be easier than the predicting West's starters, but it's still worthwhile to take a look. Here they are: G - Kyrie Irving - Boston Celtics Season Stats: 23.1 PPG (49/41/85), 6.6 APG, 4.9 RPG, 1.6 SPG Although his team hasn't lived up to expectations, Kyrie has not disappointed. His points per game may be down slightly, but he is still making massive contributions to the offense. Kyrie is averaging a career-high 6.6 assists per game and 1.3 offensive rebounds per game.

Now that it's been a few weeks and a lot has changed in the NBA it's time to update my MVP predictions. Last time featured Steph Curry, Anthony Davis, and Kevin Durant (Check it out here). But, with Davis and Curry dealing with injuries and KD not playing at an MVP level it's time to look at new candidates.

The team has had moderate success so far, going 7-7 with 4 losses by 2 points or less. A trade may be just what they need to win those close games and set them on the path for making the playoffs. Let's look at the Charlotte Hornets trade options: Trade #1 Hornets Recieve: Kent Bazemore, Dewayne Dedmon Heat Recieve: Nicolas

Why Kemba Walker is a Top 5 Point Guard

This season Kemba Walker has become one of the most controversial players. A lot of NBA fans say he isn't all that good and is just a shot chucker on a bad team. Others argue that Kemba is Kyrie Irving on a bad team. But, after Kemba's record-breaking start to the season, I would argue he is a top 5 point guard of this year. Kemba Walker vs Kyrie Irving Because this article is focused on this season only, it's quite obvious Kemba has outplayed Kyrie. Not only has Kemba scored 14 more points per game, but he has done it on a highly efficient 49.2% from the field and 45.3% from three. On the other hand, Kyrie is shooting just 40.2% from the

The 4 Best Moments of NBA Week 1

After one week of NBA action, fans have already been treated to so many great moments. Kemba has already had a record-breaking start to the season. Actual punches were thrown in the Lakers-Rockets game. Nikola Jokic had possibly the best game from a big man in NBA history. Caris Levert looks like a most improved player candidate. After watching NBA week 1, I'm even more excited for the rest of the season. Kemba's Record-Breaking Start To start the season, Kemba Walker has created the new NBA record for threes made in the first 3 games of the season. After knocking down 7 against the Heat, he has made 19 threes in just three games. Kemba has quietly become one of the most underrated
