James, Giannis Named Captains, All-Star Game Starters Announced
On Thursday night, the NBA announced its All-Star starters.
Headed by captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo, the West will be represented by Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Paul George, while the East will see Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, Kawhi Leonard, and Joel Embiid take center stage in Charlotte.
As the top overall finisher in fan voting, @KingJames will make first pick in the First Round (Starters). @Giannis_An34 will have first pick in the Second Round (Reserves).
After the first pick in a round, picks will alternate until all players in that round have been selected. pic.twitter.com/VHpBw9p6xf

Of course, as per the new concept, the two captains will be granted the opportunity to pick their teams and unlike last year, the selection show will be televised.
The All-Star reserves will be selected by the NBA coaches.
