NBA All-Star 2024: Teams, Roster Picks & Predictions

NBA All-Star voting isn’t open just yet, but that doesn’t mean that it’s too early to put together our predictions for who will make the 2023-24 NBA All-Star Game.

Last year, voting opened on Dec. 20 and ran until Jan 21. With numerous players having historic seasons and heavily involving themselves in MVP discussions, there’s no shortage of worthy All-Star nominees.

Who will earn the 12 spots on each of our NBA All-Star teams? Let’s dive right into the lineups.

*All-Star Starters include two backcourt and three frontcourt players.

**All-Star Reserves include two backcourt, three frontcourt, and two wild card players.

Eastern Conference 

Starter: Tyrese Haliburton, Indiana Pacers

  • PPG: 26.1

  • APG: 12.0

  • RPG: 4.3

  • 3PT: 43.9%

Haliburton made his first All-Star team a year ago and kept the pedal to the metal this year, reaching the In-Season Tournament final and elevating himself into the MVP conversation as the best player on a team that is on pace to average the most points per game in NBA history. He should also be a fan-favorite in NBA All-Star voting because of the joy he brings to the game.

Starter: Tyrese Maxey, Philadelphia 76ers

  • PPG: 26.1

  • APG: 6.8

  • RPG: 4.1

  • 3PT: 39.3%

Maxey appears to be in a strong position to make his first All-Star team. There were concerns that the Sixers were ill-equipped to handle the loss of James Harden, but Maxey put those to rest with his All-Pro-level play, highlighted by a new career high of 50 points in a win against the Pacers.

Starter: Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics

  • PPG: 27.4

  • APG: 4.2

  • RPG: 8.8

  • FG: 49.1%

Tatum is the best player on arguably the league’s best team. He is committed to the defensive end, a much-improved rebounder, and the go-to guy whenever his team needs a bucket, which he usually delivers on.

Starter: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks

  • PPG: 32.0

  • APG: 5.0

  • RPG: 10.8

  • SPG: 1.5

Lost in the excitement of the Damian Lillard trade is the excellence of Giannis, who has been an utter terror on both sides of the court and just scored a franchise-record 64 points. The Bucks haven’t looked amazing but are still near the top of the standings, and he’s the main reason why.

Starter: Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers

  • PPG: 33.8

  • APG: 6.4

  • RPG: 11.5

  • BPG: 1.8

Fun fact: Embiid is averaging more points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals than he did when he won the MVP last year. He’s on pace to win his third straight scoring title and has improved his efficiency to the point that there’s no longer a clear separation between him and Nikola Jokic.

Bench: Donovan Mitchell, Cleveland Cavaliers

  • PPG: 27.4

  • APG: 5.1

  • RPG: 5.7

  • SPG: 1.9

Our first member of the projected All-Star reserves is Donovan Mitchell. While the team has struggled for consistency in the lineup, he’s been an ever-present scoring threat and their most important player.

Bench: Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics

  • PPG: 22.1

  • APG: 3.3

  • RPG: 4.8

  • FG: 46.8%

Brown is the most expensive player in NBA history, and although he isn’t scoring as much or as efficiently as he did last year, he’s the second-best player on a 17-5 Celtics team many regard as the best in the league.

Bench: Jalen Brunson, New York Knicks

  • PPG: 24.6

  • APG: 5.7

  • RPG: 3.7

  • 3PT: 42.9%

Brunson is no longer a nice young player or a player to watch. He’s a bona fide star. His small size hasn’t stopped him from being the point guard on a top-three defensive team, and his expanded three-point shooting significantly raises the Kicks’ ceiling.

Bench: Mikal Bridges, Brooklyn Nets

  • PPG: 23.0

  • APG: 3.9

  • RPG: 5.9

  • 3PT: 38.3%

“Brooklyn Bridges” is the leader of a Nets squad that, despite obvious roster gaps, is playing very well and has competed well against top teams. He started the year slow but is finding his shot and becoming more dangerous.

Bench: Paolo Banchero, Orlando Magic

  • PPG: 20.7

  • APG: 4.5

  • RPG: 6.8

  • 3PT: 38.9

The first-overall pick a year ago greatly improved his scoring efficiency and is the best player on an overachieving Magic squad. He scored a career-high 42 points recently and is shooting 49% from the field, and if his offense continues to develop, he can be the best player on a top-four team in the East.

Bench: Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat

  • PPG: 22.3

  • APG: 3.9

  • RPG: 9.9

  • SPG: 1.2

Bam is the hub of everything that happens in Miami. On top of having the largest defensive responsibility of any player in the league, he’s been efficient scoring the ball and doing all of the little things the right way.

Bench: Damian Lillard, Milwaukee Bucks

  • PPG: 24.8

  • APG: 7.0

  • RPG: 4.5

  • 3PT: 34.6%

Dame’s inconsistency has been noticeable, but he’s also had many explosive nights and is still extremely dangerous. This spot could have gone to Trae Young, but the Bucks’ success and the Hawks’ lack thereof led us to go with “Dame Time.”

2024 All-Star Snubs

  • Trae Young - Atlanta Hawks

  • Cam Thomas - Brooklyn Nets

  • LaMelo Ball - Charlotte Hornets

  • Julius Randle - New York Knicks

  • Franz Wagner - Orlando Magic

Western Conference

Starter: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder

  • PPG: 30.4

  • APG: 6.2

  • RPG: 5.5

  • FG: 55%

This is what an MVP candidate looks like. Shai made first-team All-NBA last year, got better over the offseason and is now leading a Thunder squad that is one solid rebounding big man away from being a championship contender.

Starter: Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks

  • PPG: 32.0

  • APG: 8.9

  • RPG: 8.2

  • 3PT: 38.4%

Luka is doing Luka things yet again, even without Kyrie Irving in the lineup at various times. The Mavs reworked their roster in the offseason to even better fit his talents, and the result is that the team looks much better than it did a year ago.

Starter: LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers

  • PPG: 25.3

  • APG: 6.7

  • RPG: 7.5

  • 3PT: 40.5% 

The King won the In-Season Tournament MVP, is shooting 66.7% in clutch situations, is averaging the second-best three-point percentage of his career, and is flat-out destroying Father Time in their ongoing battle. Even at his age, when he’s fully engaged, he’s one of the three best players in the world.

Starter: Kevin Durant, Phoenix Suns

  • PPG: 30.8

  • APG: 5.6

  • RPG: 6.5

  • 3PT: 48.4%

Durant’s efficiency has been something to marvel at. His ridiculous 48.4% three-point shooting on top of his usage and volume at 35 years old is a major reason why the Phoenix Suns, despite their roster inconsistency, will have one of the scariest offenses when the postseason arrives. 

Starter: Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets

  • PPG: 27.2

  • APG: 9.4

  • RPG: 12.6

  • FG: 53.8%

The Joker is the best player in the world until proven otherwise. He can sleepwalk to an efficient triple-double and consistently creates the best offense in the league, plus he’s an improved defender.

Bench: Steph Curry, Golden State Warriors

  • PPG: 29.1

  • APG: 4.4

  • RPG: 5.0

  • 3PT: 42.2%

Curry has been let down by his Warriors teammates but is putting up MVP-like numbers himself. We’re not sure how this season will turn out for the Dubs, but the Baby-Faced Assassin is still shooting the ball like no player ever has.

Bench: Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves

  • PPG: 24.4

  • APG: 4.8

  • RPG: 5.6

  • SPG: 1.2

Edwards is still one small step away from superstardom but has taken over the burden of being the best player on a Timberwolves team that is the best in the Western Conference. He accepts defensive challenges and has grown as a playmaker in the pick-and-roll, both of which are reasons for optimism in the postseason. 

Bench: Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers

  • PPG: 23.9

  • APG: 3.0

  • RPG: 12.5

  • BPG: 2.6

AD looks healthy and kicked his game into high gear recently, putting up double-doubles in 14 straight games. He’s a top-two Defensive Player of the Year candidate and should be a 2024 NBA All-Star reserve after missing the past couple of teams.

Bench: Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns

  • PPG: 28.1

  • APG: 8.3

  • RPG: 6.1

  • 3PT: 42.5%

There’s an argument to be made that Booker is the best player on the Suns. As the new de facto point guard, he’s greatly improved his sense of timing and decision-making as a ball-handler, and he’s also shooting the ball better than he ever has.

Bench: Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves

  • PPG: 21.6

  • APG: 3.0

  • RPG: 9.1

  • 3PT: 42.6%

KAT is the second-best player on the West-leading T’Wolves. He’s accepted and embraced this role, becoming more aggressive, driving mismatches and contesting shots at the rim in a way he hadn’t previously.

Bench: Chet Holmgren, Oklahoma City Thunder

  • PPG: 17.0

  • APG: 2.5

  • RPG: 7.8

  • BPG: 2.4

This selection could be controversial, but the impact of Holmgren, a first-year player, has been profound. On top of his steady scoring and rebounding, he’s an elite shot-blocker who also shoots 38% from three—there is no player in the league quite like him right now, and he deserves to be a 2024 NBA All-Star

Bench: De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings

  • PPG: 29.5

  • APG: 6.4

  • RPG: 4.5

  • 3PT: 38.1%

Talk about taking a leap. Fox went from an excellent player to one that is now an MVP candidate thanks to career-highs in scoring and three-point shooting. He plays with such blistering changes of pace that he’s practically unguardable, and that is reflected by the Kings’ success.
