NBA All-Star


Diego Buitrago, Sophomore Staff Writer

The NBA All-Star weekend is February 15th and it ends February 17th. Currently the All-Star captains are Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James . They selected their team’s yesterday on 2/7/19. Lebron had the first pick of the All-Star draft, the draft lasted about 30 minutes. Next weekend is going one good game. Both teams are even in skill, Giannis has a mostly length team and Lebron has a mostly shooter team with people like James Harden, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. Lebron’s team is mostly full of previous All-Star caliber player, KD, Kyrie, and Klay are already  All-Stars but this is Harden’s first All-Star appearance.

Giannis selected players like Paul George, Joel Embiid, Nikola Jokic, Blake Griffin, and Nikola Vucevic. A bunch of big men for the all star game. As they said “Team length vs. Team shooters”. This All-star game is going to be a good one and I hope you enjoy it as much as I will. Giannis team is mostly first time All-Stars with people like Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, and Nikola Vucevic. Giannis drafted Curry as his first pick just like last year when Curry drafted him first. I think this is going to be a good game, I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.
