We are now less than one month away from the 2017 NBA All-Star game, which will be held on Feb. 19 in New Orleans.
A few teams – Golden State, Clevelend, San Antonio – have their annual positions in the postseason almost already clinched, but the middle and bottom of the NBA is a mess.

With all of that pessimism in mind, the 2017 NBA Draft has a lot of eyes on it. There is a lot of good talent in the group, and plenty of size. Will there be another Durant or Westbrook in the names called this summer?
