All right Folks, we are back and ready for NBA All-Star Weekend of 2017. Great feeling about these picks so lets not waste time and dive on in!
Remember when Kyrie lowkey won the NBA Championship last season? Yeah me too, and I like that stud to light it up this weekend in the NBA Three-Point Comp and shutdown the favorite Klay Thompson. Big Kyrie fan, big Cavs guy, lets rumble ya’ll.
Winner: Kyrie Irving +400
Second Option: Nick Young +900
Obviously the little guys are great bets to win the Skills Challenge.. but I’m going off the board a little with my pick this year. As long as he doesn’t get hurt (God he always gets hurt when I play him in Draft Kings and ruins my teams), I like Anthony Davis to win this comp. He has long strides, great ball handling skills, and shoots the 3-ball fairly well. I’ll take him all day at these odds baby!
Winner: Anthony Davis +1000
Second Option: Isaiah Thomas +200
Slam Dunk Contest
Zach LaVine is dead.. that means Aaron Gordon is the lock of the century (according to Big Buck Hunter). Nobody is even close to his athleticism level and experience in the comp. When I saw Glenn Robinson III and DeAndre Jordan were in this challenge I started laughing.. then threw some big money on Gordon. I guess Derrick Jones Jr. is an OK option but he still won’t beat my main man Gordon.
Winner: Aaron Gordon -155
Second Option: I guess Derrick Jones Jr. +130
** P.S. take the OVER on the All-Star Game no matter what..
