When Antetokounmpo heard that he was going to be on the same team as the former MVPs, he boldly predicted the outcome of the upcoming game on Sunday.

The three-time champion is averaging 29.7 points, 6.3 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game this season.

Nonetheless, all three players are competing together in the star-studded contest for the first time in their careers. Other notable teammates include stars Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard and Nikola Jokic.

As for James, he’s been a wonderful manager as an All-Star captain. His team has come up on top in the last two years. The veteran is collecting 25.8 points, 8.0 boards and 7.8 assists per game this season.
