Giannis Accuses LeBron of Tampering After Picking AD on All-Star Team

Giannis Accuses LeBron of Tampering After Picking AD on All-Star Team

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.

Damian Lillard found out last week that he had made his fourth All-Star team.

James' picked Kevin Durant with his first pick and rounded out the starting lineup with Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard and James Harden.

LeBron and AD will be teammates in a few weeks in Charlotte but they won't be teammates any other time this year, of course, as that big trade between the Lakers and Pelicans never happened. 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.

"Pop is going to tell me I can only play him two minutes", James said, likely only half-seriously.

LeBron James opted for Golden State star Kevin Durant with the 1st pick of the All-Star draft on Thursday, February 7 (Friday, February 8, Philippine time). "I'm just kidding. I'm going with my buddy Dwyane Wade".

It was not immediately clear in which city the meeting would take place. Trump said the United States spent a fortune on a base in Iraq.

"The best way to do this is for Giannis to trade everybody on his bench for Anthony Davis", Barkley joked, referencing the Lakers' reported offers to the Pelicans involving much of their young core. James and Curry were the captains a year ago, but the order of their picks were not revealed or aired.

"I know Ben Simmons is your guy so I'll do it", Antetokounmpo said.

In a surprise move, the two captains then agreed to a trade, with James swapping Oklahoma City Thunder star Westbrook for Ben Simmons after the draft.

"I didn't have to lobby for it", Wade said.

Here are the final all-star rosters, listed in order of how they were drafted (note that the captains alternated picks in each round and that, before the trade, Simmons was taken four spots ahead of Westbrook).
