Five years into the future, the NBA will be entirely different.
Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell will no longer be competing for Rookie of the Year. Teams won’t be gearing up for shots at the top pick in a potentially star-studded 2018 NBA draft, and many of the prospects in contention for this year’s No. 1 selection will be leading the charge for their respective organizations. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Karl-Anthony Towns will be in the midst of their athletic primes.
Meanwhile, Dirk Nowitzki still might be knocking down triples.
But who will emerge as All-Stars?
With Bleacher Report’s Jonathan Wasserman serving as the prospect guru, selecting and writing about the non-NBAers who’ll represent their squads in 2023’s All-Star festivities, we’ve gone through and picked out 24 representatives. Conference affiliation and positions are wholly irrelevant as we quest toward finding the league’s premier talents in terms of popularity and production.
Before we begin, keep in mind that this is an inherently subjective exercise. Plenty more players likely will be deserving of inclusion. After all, we’re not exactly wanting for All-Star snubs in the present.
Now, to the time machine!
