I know it’s only a couple of months into the NBA season, but it’s never too early to take a closer look at the NBA action thus far and try to predict who will be participating in the 2018 All-Star Game festivities this February at the Staples Center.
The 2016 NBA Draft did not disappoint in regards to huge trades and plenty of teams making decisions to affect their future for better or worse. The first two selections of Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram left little mystery to begin the night but the Boston Celtics made sure the NBA world could be confused immediately with the stunning selection of Jaylen Brown from California. The rest of the night followed with teams picking for other teams, poor draft entry decisions from three freshmen, continued stashing of international players and of course the blockbuster deal that sent Serge Ibaka from Oklahoma City to Orlando for Victor Oladipo.
The big day is here for the many top basketball prospects hoping for their name to be called by Commissioner Silver in the NBA Draft. Who will be the surprise in this year’s campaign and are there any potential busts teams should worry about?
