Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first turn as an NBA All-Star captain wasn’t great.

He built an inferior roster on paper while drafting against LeBron James, then his squad suffered a double-digit loss to Team LeBron in the actual exhibition.

The Greek Freak is closing in on his shot at redemption.

The Association has already revealed all 10 starters for next month’s All-Star Game, which will again be captained by Antetokounmpo and James. The pair will first divvy up the other players named starters by fan, media and player voting, then choose between the 14 reserves selected by coaches. That latter group will be revealed on TNT Thursday.

Will Antetokounmpo get it right this time around? Or can the King defend his throne? We’ll all find out soon enough.

Jimmy Butler had a strong argument to crack the starting group—and might have had he been categorized as a backcourt player—so he’s the easy selection among these reserves. His teammate, Bam Adebayo, looks poised to make his All-Star debut, as his defensive versatility and playmaking ability from his frontcourt position are both critical components of Miami’s success.

Khris Middleton and Ben Simmons are among the other no-brainers. Middleton looks even better than last season—his first as an All-Star—as evidenced by his 51-point eruption Wednesday night. Simmons remains a top-notch supplier of everything outside of three-point shooti
