Durant, Curry drafted first, second in All-Star draft

Giannis thinking of drafting Curry with 1st All-Star pick NBA All-Star 2019 team selections: LeBron James draws laughter after picking Anthony Davis, Dirk Nowitzki joins Team Giannis

Since it was that time of year, James said would give Antetokounmpo Westbrook for Ben Simmons, another All-Star reserve.

Last year, Stephen Curry and LeBron James picked the first player-drafted All-Star teams.

TNT host Ernie Johnson jabbed at James asking if he was sure he wanted Davis to be his teammate, to which he responded he was "very sure".

But on Thursday, James selected Westbrook to his team.

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

The Greek Freak first picked Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry, returning the favor Curry paid to him a year ago when he served as captain.

That left the third round and the decision between the two special additions to the game by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver - those being Miami's Dwyane Wade and Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki.

The 68th NBA All-Star Game takes place on February 18, 2019, (from 12:00pm AEDT) at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, NC.

Beal added at the time, though, "Y'all can pick me last, man. It doesn't change anything". He then proceeded to add some global flavor between his picks of Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic and Philadelphia 76ers maestro Ben Simmons, all first-time All-Stars as well.

For his reserves, Antetokounpo picked teammate Kris Middleton, Nikola Jokic, Ben Simmons, Blake Griffin, D'Angelo Russell, Nikola Vucevic, Kyle Lowry and Nowitzki went to his team after James passed on him.

The past few 76ers-Thunder games have been contentious affairs and after Embiid's hard foul on Westbrook in a meeting last month led to an on-court confrontation, Westbrook was asked if he was "cool" with the 76ers center.

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

TNT's Charles Barkley used the Westbrook-Simmons swap to joke that Antetokounmpo should trade "everybody on his bench for Anthony Davis".

"Kevin Durant", Antetokounmpo 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).
