Giannis thinking of drafting Curry with 1st All-Star pick

Giannis thinking of drafting Curry with 1st All-Star pick

James took Davis, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook, LaMarcus Aldridge, Karl-Anthony Towns and Bradley Beal. "I'm going with Dirk", James said during the prerecorded draft before bursting out into laughter. In his final season in the NBA, Wade will get to play in his final All-Star Game, though, thanks to commissioner Adam Silver's special invitation Friday for the three-time champion guard and Nowitzki, a former champion in his own right.

"Now I have to go into shuffle mode now".

LeBron responded, smiling, "Tampering rules do not apply on All-Star Weekend".

James, who will lead a team against fellow All-Star captain Giannis Antetokounmpo's lineup in Charlotte on February 17, assembled a formidable looking starting lineup.

Antetokounmpo said he hasn't made a list of who he wants when they make their selections tomorrow, because James could get the players he wants first. James and Curry were the captains a year ago, but the order of their picks were not revealed or aired. Antetokounmpo drafted Ben Simmons, much to James' dismay, but they agreed to work out a trade after the draft was complete. "I'm just kidding. I'm going with my buddy Dwyane Wade". James was a team captain a year ago along with the Warriors' Stephen Curry and declared after that draft that it should be televised, but the fact that he had to play in a Lakers game Thursday night meant that this installment was recorded in the morning and shown on TNT in the evening. The results weren't announced last season, but Ernie Johnson asked James after the first round of the draft, and he admitted that he drafted Durant first past year as well.




"You took my guy".

As the pair laughed over James' conundrum of playing against his protégé, the spirit of the National Basketball Association trade deadline took over, with James proposing a trade to send Russell Westbrook to Team Giannis in exchange for Simmons. When Antetokounmpo took Simmons minutes before, James used an expletive and exclaimed, "You took my guy!"

"Kevin Durant", Antetokounmpo said.

"I didn't have to lobby for it", Wade said.
