It will be interesting to see who will be the captains, too, since LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers, an Eastern Conference team, to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, a Western Conference team. People loved to see LeBron James and Stephen Curry pick who they wanted to play with.

The NBA's new format for the All-Star Game is sticking around after a successful debut last season, and this time, it should get even better.

Today, The New York Times' Marc Stein reported that the league will do just that.

In a playground-style draft, there will be two captains who will select their squads for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, which will be held in Charlotte.

"We're All-Stars. Let's have a draft.' So it sounds like we're going to have a televised draft next year". "You got 24 of the best players in the world that's going to make the team".

At a news conference on Wednesday, the president threatened political warfare if Democrats exercise their new oversight power. Demonstrators gathered outside the USA consulate in Vancouver on Thursday in support of special counsel Robert Mueller .

After the teams were announced, LeBron, Steph and others around the league said they hoped the league would televise the draft in 2019.

This should have been televised past year, but better than late than never.

It was hard to imagine the National Basketball Association going back to the East-West layout, especially when LeBron James took his talents to Los Angeles. "It's All-Star Weekend", James told reporters before Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves when asked if broadcasting the captains' choices would be a good thing.

Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen in last year's game by a score of 148-145.

With James now in the West, there's no shot for he and Curry to both be captains again.
