Predicting the 2023 NBA All-Stars

    Current Team: Memphis East (undeclared, class of 2019)

    Current Per-Game Stats: 18.2 points, 8.5 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 0.3 steals, 2.4 blocks

    Age in 2023: 21

    The 2022-23 NBA season will likely be James Wiseman’s third, which could be right when his big breakout occurs.

    Predicting future All-Star appearances means betting on his potential, because at this stage of his development, he’s just a raw 16-year-old fueled by physical tools and athleticism. Still, the mix of 7’0″ size, 7’4″ length and fluidity—plus the time and room he has to improve skill-wise—creates the perception of upside.

    During last summer’s U16s Americas Championship, he averaged 25.6 points and 11.2 rebounds per 40 minutes, posing as an easy-basket target and cleanup man. But he also flashed enough ability with his footwork and touch, which he’ll look to continue expanding over the next few seasons.
