At first glance, I thought, "Wow. Embiid/Porzingis/Jokic are going to dominate."

But then I saw about horrible the World's guards are, while the US has guards that can play with Booker/Russell.

Towns/Turner are also great in the middle.

So... Who's gonna win the game?

I went the World. The power of Embiid/Porzingis/Jokic is going to be a force.

As a Sixers fan, a team that picked Okafor over Porzingis - I'm really excited to see Embiid/Porzingis join forces.

ball handlers dominate street ball games, and that is what this is basically. US wins

World by a lot. Murray and Heild will light it up in a game like this.

Exactly. Jamal has nasty handles and against less than par defense, Murray and Buddy ain't no slouch.

I won't go as far as says no World wins, but I think Murray will open a lot of eyes.

The U.S. team has the more balanced inside-out game, although I would have replaced Brandon Ingram with Jaylen Brown. That said, small forward is weak AF in this game.
Of course the Spurs would get a 26-year-old sophomore in the game, because age ain't nothin' but a number.

P.S.: Please put Joel Embiid on Jahlil Okafor in the post.

USA has #2 rookie sensation as in Brogdon. Also big men Turner and KAT. That's easy pick for me. Also haven't heard much about Frank the tank this season.

I was reading a post about this on Facebook and exums eligibility got brought up, tried to find the rules of eligibility for this game....

Anyone enlighten me please? Thought it was for 1st/2nd year players only?
Did exums 2nd year not technically count?

Why not? Once Delly was out with injury Brogdon got a triple double in a day or two as a starter. Or questioning #2 status? Its been all over the web saying he's legit #2 favorite. Would of been #1 if their wasn't the injured Embiid loophole. Glad he fell to us in the second round. Total steal.

Looking forward to the Process/Unicorn duo and Embiid vs Jahlil (won't be much of a contest).

Also wish T.J could have made the roster over Jahlil. Would argue he's more deserving this season.

Embiid on Jah should be painfully funny to watch RIP Okafor.

So excited to watch Porzingis and Embiid on the same team.

his play is not worthy of being called a 'sensation'.

Porz, Jokic, Embiid front line will be something to watch.

Could go either way, I'll go with the biased vote and vote for the World team.

Fine. Then don't call Oden Jr (embiid) a regular. Call him what he is, a platoon player.

His playing time is largely a product of injuries to Middleton and Dellavedova, but Brogdon has gone from minor role player to clutch, starting-caliber 3-and-D combo guard in less than half a season. I'd consider him a sensation for that.

He's not a sensation.

A suprise rookie is more like it.

id say Brogdon is solid but sensation should be reserved for guys like Embiid

Can you imagine if the Sixers took KP...wow.
