BEST OF THE REST

The NBA All-Star game took centre stage in the States on Sunday, but how would it work on these shores?

The NBA All-Star game dominated the weekend’s sporting action in America this weekend as the best in the game went head-to-head at the Spectrum Center in North Carolina.

The team led by LeBron James was able to defeat Team Giannis 178-164 at the All-Star Weekend, which included musical performances from J-Cole and Meek Mill during half time as well.

One of the most exciting and fun-filled weekends in the sporting calendar, there was also the Slam Dunk Contest, the Skills Challenge and the Rising Stars game for fans to indulge in across the three-day event.

For English football fans, such an event can only be dreamed about as the Premier League have never even considered putting on an event of this magnitude.

The NBA teams are chosen by fans, players and members of the media voting to decide each starting line-up, with the Western Conference and the Eastern Conference squaring off.

However, the question has always been posed; how would the contest play out if a team from the north played a team from the south?

Here at talkSPORT.com, we have assembled two teams from the north (and Midlands) and the south in a 4-4-2 formation and tried to spread the distribution of players as evenly as possible.

Scroll down to see who made the potential lineups and let us know who you think would win.
