It’s the midway point of the NBA season, with every team surpassing the 40-game mark, which means it’s time to start looking at who some of the potential NBA All-Star starters will be for each conference. In this edition, we will be reviewing the potential NBA All-Star starters for the Eastern Conference in what has been a competitive conference.

There are a bevy of frontcourt options who are all averaging over 30 points per game and helping their teams win, such as the Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant, the Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum, and that’s not even including Philadelphia Sixers forward Joel Embiid.

That is mind-boggling to even think about one of those guys not even starting in the All-Star game with the absurd stat lines they’re putting up. That’s not even including Nets guard Kyrie Irving, who’s been playing great since his absence to promote an antisemitic film, and Cleveland Cavaliers guard Donovan Mitchell, just to name a few. Without further ado, let’s get into the guys I predict will be the Eastern Conference All-Stars.
