NBA All-Star Game 2017: TV Schedule, Live Stream for Starting Rosters Reveal

The Baseball Hall of Fame’s 2017 class was announced Wednesday, just one day before the NBA All-Star Game starters will be revealed.

The back-to-back timing, while coincidental, is appropriate, as sports fans love nothing more than arguing about who should and shouldn’t be in a Hall of Fame and who should and shouldn’t be an All-Star.

(These two go neck and neck with debating power rankings and mock drafts, as well as embarking on the annual tradition of screaming loudly on television and social media about which mid-major got screwed out of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament for a power-conference school.)

Below you’ll find the starting lineup announcement information, the latest voting results and some thoughts on who should start.

Starter Takes

For these opinions, I’m going to create a new stat out of thin air off the backs of other people who did legitimate hard (and incredible) work to come up with formulas to better analyze the game.

The stat: BPR. It’s a combination of Box Plus/Minus from Basketball-Reference.com, player efficiency rating (PER) from ESPN’s John Hollinger and Real Plus-Minus.

You can read more about how those statistics are created by following the links, but BPR is simply those three stats added together to make one number.

Obviously, the heavy emphasis is on PER, as that is the biggest number.

Using BPR, we’ll then come up with the five starters for each conference, with the caveat that we need to fill positions.

For example, none of the five Eastern Conference players with the best BPR can fill the center position, so we need to take the top four and then the best center.

Here are the results.

    

Western Conference

PG: Russell Westbrook—50.18 BPR (13.9 BPM, 29.73 PER, 6.55 RPM)

SG: James Harden—43.12 BPR (10.0 BPM, 27.83 PER, 5.29 RPM)

SF: Kawhi Leonard—42.48 BPR (7.9 BPM, 28.36 PER, 6.22 RPM)

PF: Kevin Durant—40.71 BPR (7.9 BPM, 27.44 PER, 5.37 RPM)

C: DeMarcus Cousins—39.23 BPR (6.6 BPM, 27.13 PER, 5.50 RPM)

Realistically, there are six players for five starting spots. New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis was the odd man out here, as his BPR of 37.17 fell just short. Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic also came close (36.83 BPR), although, in fairness, he only just started playing more significant minutes in December and has a smaller sample size.

Using the eye test, Westbrook (averaging a triple-double) and Harden (third in points, first in assists and leading a 33-12 Houston Rockets team that is crushing preseason expectations) are the most deserving.

Durant is the best player on the best team in the NBA, and Leonard is the best player on the second-best team on the NBA. It’s hard to leave them both out.

That leaves a battle between Cousins and Davis. The BPR says Cousins here, but either him or Davis would be a fine option.

              

Eastern Conference

PG: Kyle Lowry—38.82 BPR (7.4 BPM, 24.08 PER, 7.34 RPM)

SG: Giannis Antetokounmpo43.6 BPR (9.4 BPM, 28.22 PER, 5.98 RPM)

SF: Jimmy Butler—39.57 BPR (6.7 BPM, 25.95 PER, 6.92 RPM)

PF: LeBron James—40.82 BPR (8.1 BPM, 25.91 PER, 6.81 RPM)

C: Joel Embiid29.23 BPR (3.1 BPM, 23.94 PER, 2.19 RPM)

Kyle Lowry’s low All-Star vote total is surprising. I’d argue there’s no real debate that he should be starting at point guard for the East next month.

He’s one of, if not the best guard (point or shooting) in the Eastern Conference.

Michael Gallagher of Rotoworld explains why:

Antetokounmpo and James, arguably the two best players in the conference, can much slot almost anywhere they want outside of center, so we’re throwing them at shooting guard and power forward, respectively.

Butler is the easy call at small forward with no true contender to take away his throne this year.

That leaves the center position open. If Joel “The Process” Embiid didn’t have a minutes restriction this season, there would be no debate, as his per-36 numbers, according to Basketball-Reference.com, are off the charts (28.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.5 blocks).

Still, it’s not every day that you see a 7’0″, 250-pound center shooting better than 34 percent from beyond the arc. He’s an incredibly talented player who deserves to be in New Orleans.

Emmanuel Sanders Replaces Amari Cooper at Pro Bowl: Latest Details and Reaction

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will replace Oakland Raiders wideout Amari Cooper in the 2017 Pro Bowl, according to Aric DiLalla of the Broncos’ official website.

Cooper, who caught 83 passes for 1,153 yards and five touchdowns in 2016, nursed a shoulder injury over the final few weeks of the season. 

This year’s Pro Bowl nod represents the second of Sanders’ career. He also earned a bid to the exhibition in 2014, when he tallied career highs in receptions (101), receiving yards (1,404) and touchdown catches (nine). 

Over the course of 16 appearances in 2016, Sanders remained productive to the tune of 79 catches for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns even though the Broncos experienced significant turnover at quarterback. 

After Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler bolted for the Houston Texans in free agency, Sanders had to form a quick bond with new starter Trevor Siemian.

The 29-year-old achieved that goal, and he proceeded to finish second on the Broncos to Demaryius Thomas in receptions, yards and targets while tying Thomas for the team lead in receiving touchdowns. 

Thanks to Wednesday’s news, the Broncos will now have five representatives when the AFC meets the NFC on Jan. 29 in Orlando, Florida.

According to the Denver Post‘s Nicki Jhabvala, Sanders will be joined by Von Miller, Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr. and Darian Stewart when the NFL‘s brightest stars convene in the Sunshine State next weekend.

PredictionMachine NFL Picks: Patriots, Falcons Conference Championship Best Bets

Heading into Conference Championship Weekend, the most likely Super Bowl 51 matchup is the New England Patriots against the Atlanta Falcons, according to the updated projections at PredictionMachine.com.

And in 50,000 simulations of that potential matchup, the Patriots beat the Falcons by an average margin of approximately three points with a final score of 30-27.

Considering that the Patriots are favored this week over the Pittsburgh Steelers and, barring an injury to starting quarterback Tom Brady, will also be favored should they make the Super Bowl, New England leads the way in Super Bowl 51 win expectancy.

New England has a 34.8 percent chance of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy this season, according to the projections. The next most likely Super Bowl winner is the Falcons at 26.2 percent. The Patriots and Falcons combine for 61 percent of all potential Super Bowl wins, which is largely due to the fact they are both home favorites in their conference championship matchups this week.

Looking at this week alone, the Patriots have a 62.3 percent chance to advance to the Super Bowl. That leaves the Steelers with a 37.7 percent chance to advance, which is the lowest probability of any team in action this weekend.

The Falcons are favorites at home against the Green Bay Packers, holding a 55.4 percent chance to advance this week. The Packers have the next best chance, outside of the two favorites, to win the Super Bowl. On the back of Aaron Rodgers, the Packers have a 20.1 percent chance to bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Wisconsin.

The Steelers have the worst odds of the four remaining teams to win the Super Bowl, thanks in large part to the fact they are facing the Patriots this weekend. In a potential matchup with the Falcons or Packers in the Super Bowl, the Steelers would hold around a 50 percent chance to win either game.

In addition, the average scores of the Super Bowl 51 simulations by PredictionMachine show combined totals near 60 points regardless of who is playing.
