LOS ANGELES -- The first-ever NBA All-Star draft took place via a conference call on Thursday afternoon with team captains Steph Curry and LeBron James. While we don't know the order of the players selected in the draft, the full teams were revealed on Thursday evening by the league.
The biggest storyline from the draft? James picked former teammate Kyrie Irving in the starter pool. He'll join Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis as the starters on Team LeBron. James had the first pick of the draft due to the fan vote.
Curry countered by selecting Giannis Antetokounmpo, DeMar DeRozan, Joel Embiid and James Harden as his starting five. James and Curry first picked starters among a pool of 10 as voted by fans and media. Then, the remaining 14 All-Stars were then picked from the remaining player pool as reserves. Al Horford was selected by Team Curry so the Celtics teammates will go head-to-head against each other in a couple weeks in Los Angeles.
