So, with the All Star Game little under a week away, it’s time for some predictions. And while we’re not going to be bold enough to come up with a score, all this week we’ll be concentrating on the starters for each conference. First up? Chris Paul vs. Brook Lopez.
WEST – G – CP3 (LA Clippers)
Advantages: Speed, agility, passing. Six time All-Star.
Disadvantages: May struggle rebounding, been out for a while,
EAST – G – Brook Lopez (Brooklyn Nets)
Advantages: Freakishly tall (7ft), top 4 in NBA in PER, street cred (BROOKLYN).
Disadvantages: He’s not Rondo, he’s not Rondo, he’s not Rondo.
Verdict – Lopez is having a great season for the nets, but we’ll take CP3 all day long in this one.
