2015 Eastern Conference All Star Preview
With 55 All Star appearances in between its players, the Eastern Conference will parade a well-balanced lineup with a good mix of big men, wings, and guards. The East squad boasts of the best young guards in the game today who will be running alongside the most athletic wing men and it spells nothing but electrifying action up and down the court. A reunion among members of the then-Miami Big Three wwas expected, but Wade pulled out of the All Star game Tuesday to rest his ailing body.
With that being said, we look at your 2015 Eastern Conference All Stars, beginning with the starters:
LeBron James, 6`8, F, CLE (11th All Star appearance)
26 points, 5.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.7 blocks
This one’s a no brainer and it has been the case for the past decade. LeBron James is by far the most decorated player in the league today and he’s expected to channel his two-time All Star Game MVP-winning self once the bright lights are turned on. In 10 All Star appearances, LeBron’s numbers have been close to his normal game stats with averages of 24.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 6.1 assists. He’s showing no signs of slowing down.
