Bucks’ Giannis selects teammate Middleton for NBA All-Star roster

  • Giannis thinking of drafting Curry with 1st All-Star pick

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will share the court one final time February 17 and, for the first time since the Big Three broke up in 2014, it will be as teammates.

In December, shortly after James said it would be "amazing" and "incredible" to have Davis as a teammate on the Lakers, the National Basketball Association issued a memo to all teams reminding them of its rules on tampering and the consequences for violating them.

With the first overall pick, James selected Kevin Durant while Antetokounmpo chose Stephen Curry as the Greek Freak eventually took Joel Embiid and then Paul George.

Just as it looked like we were wrapping things up, James approached Antetokounmpo on a trade between Westbook for Simmons, which the three-time All-Star took him up on, making for the first-ever trade in All-Star Draft history. The results weren't announced last season, but Ernie Johnson asked James after the first round of the draft, and he admitted that he drafted Durant first a year ago as well.

"Pop is going to tell me I can only play him two minutes", James said, likely only half-seriously. "I'm going with my buddy, Dwyane Wade".

According to excerpts of her speech, Abrams will argue that all Americans should have economic opportunity and voting access. Abrams spoke about how her family knew that opportunity is possible in the nation, but not guaranteed.

The other all-star team captain who was participating in the draft, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks, actually was first to make humorous reference to the Lakers' fervent but fruitless pursuit of Davis.

"He better pick me", Wade said Friday after the Heat's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Khris Middleton, Nikola Jokic, Ben Simmons, Blake Griffin, D'Angelo Russell, Nikola Vucevic and Kyle Lowry made up the reserves.

Barkley's suggestion prompted laughter from the two captains, who were tasked with picking four starters in the first round and seven reserves in the second round each. James took Davis, Golden State's Klay Thompson, Portland's Damian Lillard, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge, Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns and Washington's Bradley Beal.

With a smile on his face, Antetokounmpo obliged and sealed the deal to send Simmons to Team LeBron, while the 76ers point guard was at home riding the rollercoaster of events.
