NBA All-Star Game captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo chose their teams for this year’s matchup, which will take place in Chicago on Sunday, Feb. 16.
The taped draft was shown on TNT’s NBA Tip-Off Thursday prior to the Bucks’ home game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
James took Lakers teammate and big man Anthony Davis with the first overall pick, while Antetokounmpo countered with Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid.
James and Antetokounmpo, who were also All-Star Game captains last year, alternated picks for the remainder of the starter round. Antetokounmpo led off the reserve round by taking teammate Khris Middleton, and James responded with Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard.
