Article Summary:

Philadelphia 76ers stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons already know they will be heading to Atlanta for the All-Star game on Sunday at State Farm Arena, but they now know who they will be playing for in the game.

The NBA scrapped the East vs. West concept starting with the 2018 All-Star game when the top vote-getters in each conference being team captain and they pick their teams like at the playground. Sixers coach Doc Rivers will be coaching Team Durant in the game so he will have direct control or how many minutes Embiid will play.

The Sixers are heading into the All-Star break with the best record in the Eastern Conference and it is mostly due to the elite play of Simmons and Embiid.
