Yup just read about Nikola Vucevic and Nikola Jokic both making there 1st all-star appearances! Vucevic 7'0 260 has been underrated his whole 8 year career but has really picked up his game into star-status this year with career high avgs of 20.6 ppg 12 rpg 3.8 apg and 1.2 bpg! As for Jokic 7'0 250, this seems to be the first of many all-star selections for the young Serbian, with Jokic cementing himself as the best Center in the NBA! He's put up unheard passing avgs for a bigman this year with 20.1 ppg 10.5 rpg 7.7 apg and 1.4 spg!! A bold prediction for next years all-star game is that we may see the whitest teams since the early 90's or 80's! With new Mav Kristaps Porzingis fully healthy, along with his rising star teammate Luka Doncic likely to be yearly candidates! Also white Americans Kevin Love, and Gordan Hayward are expected 100% back and in form. With Love almost a lock to make it every year, Hayward has found it rough getting back to his 16/17 allstar form after that nasty leg break. But I've been hearing leg breaks are the hardest injuries to recover from in basketball, so expect Hayward to look consistently like his all-star self by the end of this season and in 19/20!
