All-Star Captains To Pick Roster Live Shortly Before Game  

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 25, 2023 5:32 am

The All-Star captains for this year's game will select their teams during a live segment shortly before the start of the game. 


The captains, likely to be LeBron James and either Giannis Antetokounmpo or Kevin Durant, and starters will be announced on Thursday.


This will be the sixth time in which the league has used a format where captains select their team, though rosters were selected days before in previous cases.


James is 5-0 in All-Stars games he has captained. 


This year's All-Star Game will take place in Salt Lake City.

This honestly sounds dumb to have them pick teams right before the game itself. What's the point of the coaching staff then? No time for them to a practice or any time to have a plan in place to make sure each all star gets enough minutes in the game. Just a school yard pick up game.

Plus, I enjoyed the all star draft on inside the NBA with the crew.
