With the NBA trade deadline now out of the equation, the NBA All Star captains—LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo—picked their teams last night as part of TNT's "NBA All-Star Draft Show."
And it was Antetokounmpo delivering on his promise to take Stephen Curry with his first draft pick . Of course, it was LeBron who made it possible when he selected another Warrior,Kevin Durant.With the Number 1 overall selection.
The funniest moment of the night came when James drafted Anthony Davis in his first reserve slot and said, "Tampering rules do not apply on All-Star weekend."
The Mavs Dirk Nowitzki was picked last—although I don’t think anyone is going to make fun of him at recess for that.
But the best part that I don’t think anyone expected. There was a trade as Team LeBron traded Russell Westbrook to Team Giannis in exchange for Ben Simmons after the draft.
