All-Star Game Draft To Be Televised

  • 2018 NBA All Star Game

While a firm date and specific format for the televised draft has not yet been confirmed, January 30 and 31 have emerged as two potential targets for TNT broadcast.

A year ago the NBA debuted a new format for player selection in the NBA All-Star Game that allowed the top two vote-getters to select their team based on the list of top players voted in for the All-Star game. LeBron James and Stephen Curry were captains for the 2018 All-Star Game.

In case you don't know what we're talking about, here's a brief refresher: for many years, the league and its players grew a bit exhausted of the format of the All-Star Game, which featured the Eastern Conference vs.

The teams will be selected by the two captains, which are determined by the leading vote getters.

Past year was the first time the National Basketball Association used a draft process to fill out the All-Star squads.

After whiffing and missing an opportunity to cash in on the popularity of televising captains LeBron James and Steph Curry drafting their respective All-Star squads last season, it will indeed happen this season.


The league caught some flack last season for not televising the draft.

"What's bad about it?"

But if there was a bit of a letdown, it came with the All-Star Game draft not being televised. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time. "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. I don't think it'll be bad.

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

The 2019 NBA All-Star Game will be held in Charlotte on Sunday, February 17.

Last season, Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen 148-145.
