Andre Iguodala (Small Forward): 35 percent

Iguodala has two things going for him when it comes to being on the 2014 Western Conference All-Star Team.

First, even more so than the shooting guard position, small forward in the West suffers from a severe dearth of All-Star talent. Since Carmelo Anthony moved to the New York Knicks in 2011, the only small forward to make the All-Star team is Kevin Durant, obviously.

Secondly, the single best factor in predicting who will be named to the All-Star team is who has previously made an All-Star team, and Iguodala was selected as an All-Star when he was with Philadelphia in the East.

Granted his free-throw percentage was an issue last year, but now that he is on a championship-contending team that plays to his skill set, Iguodala has a good shot at making the cut. Plus, other than Durant, who else is even close to his level… Chandler Parsons, Tayshaun Prince? No.
