Team LeBron versus Team Steph: Who Would Win?

Lebron James vs Stephen Curry

A Wheeler's Opinion: Given the final roster of each team, LeBron's team has the upper hand

Over the past seasons, the All-Star Game had been about West versus East. The starters were voted by fans while reserves were selected by the coaches. Now? The West versus East is replaced by Team LeBron versus Team Steph.


Prior to the start of the season, the NBA has announced that it would change the format of the All-Star Game. The fans would still vote for the starters but the player with the highest number of votes from each conference would be named the captain of his team. Now building the team's roster for each team will undergo a drafting process meaning each captain will draft his starters and reserves.

As it happened, this year's All-Star Game will very much interesting and at some point, weird. Why?

Check out the rosters of both squads:

Team LeBron

  • LeBron James- captain/starter
  • DeMarcus Cousins- starter
  • Anthony Davis- starter
  • Kevin Durant- starter
  • Kyrie Irving- starter
  • LaMarcus Aldridge
  • Bradley Beal
  • Kevin Love
  • Victor Oladipo
  • Kristaps Porzingis
  • John Wall 
  • Russell Westbrook

Team Steph

  • Steph Curry- captain/starter
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo- starter
  • DeMar DeRozan- starter
  • Joel Embiid- starter
  • James Harden- starter
  • Jimmy Butler
  • Draymond Green
  • Al Horford
  • Damian Lillard
  • Kyle Lowry
  • Klay Thompson
  • Karl Anthony-Towns
It's interesting to see how LeBron James will play alongside Kyrie Irving but what's more interesting is that LeBron James and Kevin Durant are on the same team alongside Anthony Davis. That's a scary trio because we're talking about 3 of the best stars in the NBA today (Sorry, Steph. You're included)

Who would win?

Personally, this pundit on wheels thinks that Team LeBron will dominate because they have Durant, Davis, Russell Westbrook and the Washington Wizards' dynamic duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal. Steph Curry's team may have James Harden and Giannis "The Greek Freak" Antetokounmpo on board but none of them can defend LeBron James for one. 


Assuming that this year's All-Star Game will be played exactly like a normal basketball and not just an extension of the Slam Dunk Contest, it would be an exciting game not just for the players but for the fans. Why? They will get to see stars from other conference joining stars from the other conference in a rare team-up. Of course, this might be the preview of what it would be like should Anthony Davis goes to Golden State Warriors and teams-up with Kevin Durant.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.

At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup. No one was even close to defending Lonzo at the point and he chose to softly lay it in which […] MoreThe post Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game? appeared first on Powcast Sports.
