Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James divvied up the remaining 22 All-Stars taking part in next weekend’s NBA All-Star Game on Thursday night. James, with a smile, responded, “Listen, those guys [the Bucks] are 80 and 0 right now. We don’t need them to get another guy on their team.”
After Davis, the two captains went back and forth, with Antetokounmpo – who spent the whole draft consulting a notebook he had spent time compiling predraft notes in – taking Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam, Kemba Walker and Trae Young, while James selected Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic and James Harden.
