The NBA did the right thing this year and televised the All-Star game draft.
Lebron James got the first pick among the starters, and then Giannis Antetokounmpo went first with the reserves. Here are the results:
1st: Kevin Durant (Team LeBron)
2nd: Stephen Curry (Team Giannis)
3rd: Kyrie Irving (Team LeBron)
4th: Joel Embiid (Team Giannis)
5th: Kawhi Leonard (Team LeBron)
6th: Paul George (Team Giannis)
7th: James Harden (Team LeBron)
8th: Kemba Walker (Team Giannis)
9th: Khris Middleton (Team Giannis)
10th: Anthony Davis (Team LeBron)
11th: Nikola Jokic (Team Giannis)
12th: Klay Thompson (Team LeBron)
13th: Ben Simmons (Team Giannis)*
14th: Damian Lillard (Team LeBron)
15th: Blake Griffin (Team Giannis)
16th: Russell Westbrook (Team LeBron)*
17th: D’Angelo Russell (Team Giannis)
18th: LaMarcus Aldridge (Team LeBron)
19th: Nikola Vucevic (Team Giannis)
20th: Karl-Anthony Towns (Team LeBron)
21st: Kyle Lowry (Team Giannis)
22nd: Bradley Beal (Team LeBron)
23rd: Dwyane Wade (Team LeBron)
24th: Dirk Nowitzki (Team Giannis)
After the draft, there was a trade, with Ben Simmons going to Team LeBron and Russell Westbrook going to Team Giannis.
Giannis shook things up a bit by taking his teammate Kris Middleton with the first pick in the second round, much earlier than you would expect.
Other than that, what do you think of the draft?
