Former Duke basketball guard Kyrie Irving

Brooklyn Nets: 15-12, No. 3 in Eastern Conference

Fan voting: No. 2 among Eastern Conference guards

Season stats: The 10th-year pro is averaging 27.9 points, 5.9 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals, and 0.8 blocks while shooting 52.2 percent from the field, 41.0 percent from beyond the arc, and 95.0 percent from the foul line.

Stating case: From his dazzling dribbling to his top-shelf speed and silky jumper, Kyrie Irving is built for a showcase setting. Moreover, considering the six-time All-Star and former Duke basketball one-and-done is averaging a career-high in points while also pulling off a personal-best percentage from the field, a seventh selection now appears all but inevitable, perhaps as a starter.

All-Star probability for Kyrie Irving: 98 percent
