Klay Thompson (Shooting Guard): 10 percent

Unlike point guard or power forward, the shooting guard position in the West is not stacked with All-Star talent. The challenge for Klay will be getting recognition alongside the two exceptions to that rule: Kobe Bryant and James Harden.

If he can continue to hone his excellent defensive skills and push his three-point percentage above 42 percent while averaging around 18 points per game, he just might have a chance at his first All-Star appearance. The only competition he has other than the aforementioned Bryant and Harden is possibly San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and Phoenix’s Eric Bledsoe.
