The NBA All-Star weekend is less than two months away and millions of fans have started voting for their favorite player to make it to the All-Star rosters of both the Eastern and Western Conferences. NBA Hall of Famer Kevin McHale has also made his choice as to who should be the West’s starting five for the All-Star Game in Chicago on February.

Obviously, there are no surprises here. Kevin McHale has picked Los Angeles Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Clippers swingman Kawhi Leonard, Houston Rockets guard James Harden, and Dallas Mavericks point-forward Luka Doncic.
Bron and AD have led the Lakers to the best record in the Western Conference. Although they recently had a four-game losing streak, they are still one of the best teams in the league.
Moreover, Leonard has been playing really well for the Clippers this season. The reigning Finals MVP continues to prove that he’s ready for the spotlight of LA.
On the other hand, Harden remains as one of the most unstoppable offensive forces in the NBA, while Doncic is having a phenomenal season for the Mavs.
For the East, ex NBA guard Brian Shaw gave his picks. For the three-time NBA champion with the Lakers, he has Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker, Miami Heat swingman Jimmy Butler, Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo and Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid.
Of course, a lot of things can still happen over the next few weeks. As we all know, there are a lot of great players in the league who can step up and raise their games to the next level when needed. But at this point, it is safe to say that all the names mentioned by Kevin McHale and Brian Shaw will be All-Stars this season.
