NBA All-Star weekend is here; let’s take a look at what to watch for this weekend and a prediction

There is so much excitement surrounding the NBA’s all-star game. With the All-Star weekend finally upon us here are some things too look for this weekend.

The Rising Stars Game

Team USA is absolutely stacked.

It will be incredibly exciting to see Ja Morant and Zion Williamson running pick and roll with Tyler Herro, Miles Bridges, and Jaren Jackson Jr. spacing the floor. This team is going to be electric.

The world roster, on the other hand, will be running out, while not as flashy, a really cool team as well. Guys like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, RJ Barrett, Josh Okogie, Brandon Clarke and Moritz Wagner aren’t as sexy as the names on team USA but they should put up a good fight.

It would have been a little more interesting had Deandre Ayton not recently been sidelined with an ankle injury, however, this will still be an entertaining game.

Prediction: Team USA in a close one
