The NBA All Star Game Lineups will not be chosen by taking the best players from the East and West Conferences and putting them on a team. This year, Superstars Stephen Curry and Small Forward LeBron James will be choosing their players like it is a pick-up game at the park. The players will still be voted for and chosen as the best 12 players from each conference, but the teams will be mixed up. The players that will be starting have been set, but teams have not yet been chosen. The players that will be starting are, from the Western Conference, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Anthony Davis, and Demarcus Cousins; from the Eastern Conference, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyrie Irving, Joel Embiid, and Demar Derozan. The benches have not yet been decided. This system, is way different than just putting the 24 best players on two teams split by conference. It is more complex, yet still simple, as it is basically a pick-up game. I think it is an interesting concept and will be loved by many NBA fans.
