LeBron James trades Russell Westbrook to Giannis Antetokounmpo for Ben Simmons

LeBron Giannis choose their teams for the All Star Game

LeBron Giannis choose their teams for the All Star Game

It was a cool idea, but for some, there was one problem: We had no idea when the captains selected everyone to be on their teams.

They may face long odds to ever becoming teammates, but Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James will again get to share the court in an NBA All-Star Game.

And while LeBron had some fun by making a tampering joke after picking Anthony Davis with his first pick in the second round, everyone noticed something about the majority of his early picks.

It comes after Davis put in a trade request with the Lakers as one of his primary destinations, and talks between the Lakers and Pelicans dissolved (or maybe never existed from the Pelicans' point of view).

LaMarcus Aldridge will be reunited with his old Spurs teammate Kawhi Leonard at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte.

"Kevin Durant", Antetokounmpo said.

I didn't consent to my birth: Man wants to sue his parents
Why? In a recent post on Samuel's Facebook page , his mother, Kavita Karnard Samuel, seemingly responded to the controversy. On his YouTube video , which has already gone viral, Raphael answers questions from his followers and press.

The order in which players were taken in last year's draft was not officially revealed, although much of it leaked out, and the fact that this year's would be televised caused some speculation about how embarrassing it would be for whomever was picked last.

"So, the Golden State boys are off the board", James said.

Dwyane Wade will join Team LeBron as a special reserve.

After the teams were created, James and Antetokounmpo made a trade, with James sending the Thunder's Russell Westbrook to the other side in exchange for the 76ers' Ben Simmons.

James managed to make a trade, convincing Antetokounmpo to swap Westbrook for Simmons - and give the Bucks' star the chance to have Westbrook and Embiid together, as he said he wanted.

Milwaukee's Mike Budenholzer will coach Team Giannis, his second time leading an All-Star team.
