The 2015 NBA All-Star Game will be in the Mecca of basketball, as the best players in the world will be performing in Madison Square Garden. There have been a bunch of injuries that will keep stars like Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis, Dwyane Wade, and possibly Jimmy Butler who just was injured from playing.

Even with a few of the NBA’s biggest names out, there is plenty of talent, and first-time All-Stars. In the Eastern Conference, Butler, Kyle Lowry, Jeff Teague, and Kyle Korver have all been selected to their first All-Star team.

The Western Conference roster is stacked this year, with only two players making the team for the first time, as DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings, and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors will be making their first appearance.

Here are five bold predictions for the 2015 All-Star Game.
