The NBA All-Star Game may no longer have an Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference format, but that won’t be completely evident when the 2020 edition of the game tips off.

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James and Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo are both serving as All-Star captains for the second consecutive year. And when the two stars drafted their respective teams in a playground-style format Thursday night, they didn’t veer from their conferences at first.

James drafted all the available starters from the Western Conference, including Lakers teammate Anthony Davis, while Antetokounmpo drafted all the starters from the Eastern Conference. So it will be East vs. West when the starters take the floor to begin this year’s All-Star Game.

That won’t be the case for the whole game, however, as James and Antetokounmpo chose to draft reserves from both conferences to fill out their rosters.

Here’s a look at the important information for this year’s All-Star Game, including full rosters for both teams and predictions for what may happen.
