  • 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 - I'm just kidding", he said with a hearty guffaw.

If you're having a hard time following all the comings and goings surrounding the Milwaukee Bucks over the last 48 hours or so, I don't blame you.

Nowitzki will also participate in the 3-point contest during All-Star weekend and will coach rookie teammate Luka Doncic in the Rising Stars game. Team Giannis, in addition to Antetokounmpo, will start Stephen Curry, Joel Embiid, Paul George and hometown favorite Kemba Walker. While James added some suspense at first, he ended up taking his long-time peer and former teammate in Wade, leaving Giannis with Nowitzki.

In a surprise move, the two captains then agreed to a trade, with James swapping Oklahoma City Thunder star Westbrook for Ben Simmons after the draft.

James and Antetokounmpo taped their selections Thursday morning, and TNT aired their picks in the evening. "I'm just kidding. I'm going with my buddy Dwyane Wade".

LeBron kicked off the the fun draft by picking Kevin Durant.

"You took my guy". LeBron proposed Russell Westbrook for his Klutch Sports cohort Ben Simmons, with the added humor that Russ and Joel Embiid will be teammates on the Greek Freak's team. He then proceeded to add some global flavor between his picks of Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic and Philadelphia 76ers maestro Ben Simmons, all first-time All-Stars as well. That outcome was "definitely on objective", Antetokounmpo said.

"F-- no", Westbrook replied, while Embiid said of his nemesis, "I don't know why he was mad".
