Basketball: LeBron picks Durant, Irving for All-Star Game”

The NBA revealed the results of the LeBron James/Steph Curry All-Star Game draft Thursday night, live on TNT, and the rosters do not disappoint. He'll also have Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, and DeMarcus Cousins to round out his starting lineup.

His reserves are Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, the NBA MVP, Cleveland teammate Kevin Love, Washington guards John Wall and Bradley Beal, LaMarcus Aldridge of San Antonio, Indiana's Victor Oladipo and Kristaps Porzingis of NY.

Curry's team meanwhile will feature Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia's Joel Embiid and James Harden of the Houston Rockets.

Joining Lillard on the Team Stephen bench will be Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson of Golden State, Al Horford of the Boston Celtics and Kyle Lowry of Toronto.

Durant chose the "My Next Chapter" route to announce his decision to join the Warriors in free agency two summers ago, and he frequently is trolled using that template whenever he makes news.

Curry and James earned the right to pick their teams by being the top vote-getters in each of their respective conferences.

LeBron James and Stephen Curry have made their picks for the 2018 NBA All-Star game.

They then picked their own teams by taking turns from a pool of players selected as starters and reserves, regardless of conference affiliation.
