2021 NBA All-Star Predictions

Every week on Viseland my brother Michael Visenberg and I talk about our favorite pastime, Basketball. Each week we take a different topic ranging from more current NBA coverage to some historical analysis. This week was a super fun episode, we predicted the rosters of the 2021 NBA All-Star game. After we went through the roster we went through and picked our team captains (Michael-Lebron James, Jason-Giannis Antetokounmpo).

It was fun to really put yourself back in that playground mode of picking your players and seeing how you think they will perform. Throw away some of your practical NBA thoughts and pretend it’s a game of NBA 2K. The funniest part was also seeing each of us go to our basketball upbringings, Michael picked a front court heavy team, where I went with the quickness of guards. That’s why he was the Shaq and I was the Penny (later Kobe). Take a look at the teams and let me know what squad you think would win.
