Warriors Go One-Two in All-Star Draft

  • LeBron James knows what he's doing

Antetokounmpo had been adamant about trying to pick six-time All-Star Stephen Curry first, thereby returning the favor of Curry picking him first a year ago. The NBA found a clever way to get around that while paying tribute to a pair of legends about to leave the stage, adding the Heat's Dwyane Wade and the Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki as "special team roster additions" and setting up a final draft round comprising just those two.

Team LeBron features many shooters, including James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Damian Lillard.

"Those top teams in the East, yeah, they're going for it. Toronto is going for it, Milwaukee's going for it, Philly".

James gave the 76ers, Bucks and Raptors high marks for their aggression during the trade deadline, pointing to his move out west as one reason those teams have been so active. Last year wasn't televised, but fortunately, this year was, after James himself said it should be. The Raptors added center Marc Gasol to play alongside Kawhi Leonard, while the Bucks traded for Nikola Mirotic to compliment Giannis Antetokounmpo.

"I love the process of everything that I go through to be able to compete every single night".

"Everything else for me is just icing on the cake". Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the other captain, picked Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Philadelphia 76ers post player Joel Embiid, Oklahoma City Thunder swingman Paul George and Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker as his other starters.

"I'm going to enjoy it", Wade said. 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.

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

Note: Westbrook traded from Team LeBron for Simmons after draft.
