LeBron James and Steph Curry lead the teams they drafted for the 2018 NBA All-Star Game

The 2018 NBA All-Star Game marks the first contest since the league revamped the rosters and format. LeBron James and Steph Curry, who were the top two players in votes, served as captains, and selected their teams via a fantasy draft. The draft was not televised, but the final rosters were released.

The players were able to pick players regardless of conference affiliation. Team LeBron has already been decimated by injuries as DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Love, Kristaps Porzingis and John Wall are all sidelined for the game. Team Steph has remained intact. La Gazzetta’s Davide Chinellato reported Russell Westbrook will replace Cousins in the Team LeBron starting lineup.

After a public outcry, it sounds like fans could be able to watch the All-Star fantasy draft live next year. Curry spoke with ESPN about his desire for the draft to be televised next year.

“We’re all grown men,” Curry told ESPN. “Everybody can handle it. At the end of the day, you are an All-Star. Until there is a way to massage it out a little bit to understand what the dynamic would be if we go on TV. The NHL does it where there’s an incentive for the last pick, which would be hilarious if that actually happened for us because you can go all out for whoever that last pick was to soften the blow a little bit. But no one should be ashamed.”

Here’s a look at the starting five and rosters for the 2018 All-Star Game in Los Angeles.
