Warriors Go One-Two in All-Star Draft

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

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.

TNT host Ernie Johnson jabbed at James asking if he was sure he wanted Davis to be his teammate, to which he responded he was "very sure".

"Those top teams in the East, yeah, they're going for it", James told The Athletic's Joe Vardon on Thursday.

But the Pelicans kept Davis as the trade deadline passed, so for now, their time as teammates will be limited to All-Star weekend and James pounced at the chance to grab him with the second pick of the reserve round. Last year wasn't televised, but fortunately, this year was, after James himself said it should be. "I love the process of everything I go through to be able to compete every single night and put teams in position to compete for championships". 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. "I'm just kidding. I'm going with my buddy Dwyane Wade". James was the No. 1 overall selection by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 National Basketball Association draft and Miami took Wade with the No. 5 pick in the same draft.

Below are the starters and reserves selected by James and Antetokounmpo, in order. Antetokounmpo also picked his teammate Khris Middleton.

The other all-star team captain who was participating in the draft, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks, actually was first to make humorous reference to the Lakers' fervent but fruitless pursuit of Davis. The teams for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game are now set for Team LeBron and Team Giannis.
