NBA All-Star 2018

THE NBA All-Star Weekend is descending on Los Angeles, and the new-look features are expected to add an extra level of excitement to the event.
Instead of East vs West, we’ll see Team LeBron and Team Steph match up against each other. Each team ‘captain’ had the opportunity to pick his team, which hopefully adds incentive for the players to play harder than usual.
First things first, the players are ranked on how good they are right now — this isn’t a list about who has the most potential. Second, Lonzo Ball and Malcolm Brogdon aren’t ranked because they won’t be playing in the game.
The weekend begins, however, with Ben Simmons, who’ll lead the way in the Rising Stars Challenge, going up against fellow Rookie of the Year competitor, Donovan Mitchell. The Australian point guard will headline the World Team, while Mitchell, Jayson Tatum, and Brandon Ingram will lead the way for the USA Team.
