Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, LaMarcus Aldridge, Jeff Green, Michael Beasley, Jamal Crawford, Monta Ellis
Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, James Harden, Rudy Gay, Amare Stoudemire, Damien Wilkins, John Wall, Jonny Flynn.
Teams look really even and really interesting to me. I’m a little disappointed that Durant and LeBron won’t be guarding each other all night, but LeBron versus Melo and Durant versus Melo will be great stuff. Not to mention Russell Westbrook going against CP3 and John Wall.
Harden will likely guard Durant for a lot of the game as the two tend to match up with Rudy Gay slipping in some as well.
And then of course what we all really want to see: Jeff Green versus Damien Wilkins. Two former Thunder greats going head-to-head. Doesn’t get much better.
This is as close to an All-Star Game as Oklahoma City will ever get so it’ll be a fun night. It also serves as a painful reminder that there’s no real basketball coming our way.
Tip at 6:00 CT. Go Basketball.
