The guard is changing in professional basketball, with several experienced players facing the possibility of not being named starters in the upcoming All-Star game. Steph Curry, LeBron James, and Damian Lillard are at risk due to their teams’ poor records, while James Harden has been snubbed again. Lillard’s performance has declined since moving to the Milwaukee Bucks, with his points per game dropping from 32 to 25, along with lower shooting percentages. However, the final roster will not be announced until later this month, and there are several contenders vying for the remaining spots. In the Eastern Conference, Tyrese Halliburton, Donovan Mitchell, Jayson Tatum, and Joel Embiid are likely to start, with Lillard, Trae Young, and Jalen Brunson competing for bench berths. In the Western Conference, Luka Doncic, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Nikola Jokic are strong contenders, but Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, and LeBron James are also in the running for starting positions. The final lineups will be revealed at a later date, with the All-Star game set to take place on February 18.
