The All-Star Draft is an event where the two All-Star captains get to pick their teams from the pool of selected All-Stars. This year, the two All-Star captains were LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
The results of that All-Star Draft have recently been revealed. The starters for each team were picked from among the selected All-Star starters, and then the bench was obviously from the All-Star reserves.
LeBron James picked Giannis Antetokounmpo with the first pick of the draft, and notably picked up his former Finals opponent in Stephen Curry later on. Kevin Durant, in turn, added Ja Morant and Joel Embiid to his roster. Here are the full All-Star team rosters.
This is definitely an intriguing All-Star Draft, and there's no question that the two teams seem fairly evenly matched. Both LeBron James and Kevin Durant did a fantastic job of picking their rosters.
There is no question that this will be an exciting All-Star game. There is a lot of talent across the league, and we are notably seeing many players such as Trae Young and Ja Morant get their first All-Star appearances. Hopefully, this will be a good time where we see the best of the best face off against one another.
