All-Star games in any sport are roughly equivalent to cotton candy: lots of fluff and hot air but no real substance. Unfortunately, the NBA is no exception. I watched the entire All-Star Game this year, and the only thing I remember is the cringe-worthy halftime performance by Alicia Keys.

As meaningless as the game itself might be, I would argue that a player being selected as an All-Star is second only to winning a Championship or MVP. It is validation that basketball fans all over the world over recognize and appreciate your talent. Sure, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone and Reggie Miller never won a ring, but they were perennial All-Stars because fans knew they were good enough to win a championship even if their respective teams were not.

As we look forward to the 2013-14 season, Golden State Warriors fans should feel confident that they have both a championship-contending team as well as multiple All-Star worthy players. Here is a look at the starting lineup and their individual odds at making the 2014 Western Conference All-Star Team.
