NOW WATCH BELOW: Nail your NBA 2K20 technique and never lose again!

PG – Russell Westbrook (OVR 94)

NBA RUSS WESTBROOK

Card type: Moments of the Week

Best stats: 98 shot IQ, 98 offensive consistency, 98 hustle

Cost: 45k

He didn’t have the greatest start to the season, but the 2017 NBA MVP is showing why the Rockets traded big for him in the off-season.

Russ has been an All-Star player in eight of the past nine years, only missing out in 2014 and to be honest, we’d be very surprised if he missed out this term.

This 94-rated card is pretty darn impressive on all areas of the court. His rebounding (77 OVR) is his only base attribute under 80 rated, with Russ boasting an incredible 3386 total attribute points!

SG – James Harden (OVR 96)

NBA JAMES HARDEN

Card type: Moments of the Week

Best stats: 99 offensive consistency, 99 overall durability, 98 draw foul

Cost: >100k

There couldn’t be an All-Star Southwest Division five without the scoring machine that is James Harden.

Harden is averaging 37.7 points (THIRTY-SEVEN) per game through the first 37 games of the season. He is consistently putting in 40+ PPG performances and breaking records left right and center.

Harden will no doubt be an All-Star and the fact he has a pink diamond card at this stage in the season shows just how good he’s been this year.

SF – Luka Doncic (OVR 95)

NBA LUKA DONCIC

Card type: Moments

Best stats: 98 shot IQ, 99 stamina, 98 offensive consistency

Cost: >100k

Last year’s Rookie of the Year is well in the running for this year’s main MVP award, so yes, Luka Doncic will be an All-Star this year.

The Slovenian has already staked his claim as one of the best European’s to play in the NBA and he’s only in his second season at 20 years old! It’s frightening to think how good this 6’7” small forward is going to be.

His current highest-rated card in the game is this 95-rated diamond MOTW card but we have no doubts that he will receive higher before the season’s end.

PF – Jared Jackson Jr. (OVR 94)

NBA JJ JR

Card type: Moments of the Week

Best stats: 98 offensive consistency, 95 hustle, 95 block

Cost: 42k

The Grizzlies are going through a rebuilding era currently, but their young squad is being led in the scoring department by power forward Jaren Jackson Jr.

Triple J has burst onto the scene in the 2019/20 campaign, averaging 18 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. With quality lacking in the power forward roles, could this be enough for a maiden voyage to the All-Star game?

Real-life All-Star or not, this 94-rated diamond card fits in perfectly in this All-Star Southwest Division side, with his rebounding (94 OVR) and outside scoring (90 OVR) his two standout attributes.

C – Clint Capela (OVR 94)

NBA CLINT CAPELA

Card type: Moments of the Week

Best stats: 98 offensive rebound, 98 defensive rebound, 98 hands

Cost: 34k

This team has been dominated by the Rockets so far and that continues here with the inclusion of 94 rated Clint Capela.

Clint has been with the Rockets since being drafted in 2014 and is yet to make an All-Star appearance, could this be the year that finally changes? A first season double-double average (14.5 points and 14.4 rebounds) suggests so.

This is a very good MyTEAM card to have playing center in a starting five. High ratings in key attacking stats (95 standing dunk) as well as near perfect rebounding (98 OVR rebounding) means you simply have to have Capela in this five.

How to ensure the Southwest best make it to Chicago

The Southeast Division is the next division up in our mini-series. Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards, Orlando Magic, Charlotte Hornets and the Miami Heat are the five teams who make up this mini division in the East.

Three of the five teams feature in this five, the best Southeast five you can make from current NBA stars.

PG – Trae Young (OVR 94)

NBA TRAE YOUNG

Card type: Moments of the Week

Best stats: 98 offensive consistency, 98 stamina, 95 hands

Cost: >100k

He may only be in his second year as a NBA player, but Trae Young surely has to make the All-Star team, right?

The Atlanta Hawks point guard has been the star man in an otherwise disappointing side so far this campaign. Considering his known ability to nail threes from the logo, its no surprise to see Young come in with a 94 rated 3pt shot.

His slender frame and speed (91 speed with ball) help towards his 90 rated athleticism.

SG – Bradley Beal (OVR 95)

NBA BRAD BEAL

Card type: Moments of the Week

Best stats: 98 offensive consistency, 98 stamina, 98 shot IQ

Cost: 35k

Another player who’s manning the fort for their team is Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal.

Beal is comfortably leading the point-scoring averages for the Wizards, with an average of 27.8 PPG, some 12 points better than second-highest scorer, Dave Bertans.

Beal is a thoroughbred scorer and that is represented by his 93 outside scoring on this card. Having him paired with the Tray and his playmaking abilities provide a filthy combination.
