Is Televising the NBA All-Star Draft a Good Idea?

Is Televising the NBA All-Star Draft a Good Idea?”

Last year, the fans voted LeBron and Stephen Curry as captains, meaning they drafted their respective teams. DeMar DeRozan told reporters at the time, "Televise it. Give the people what they want to see". The draft was described by "playground-style" by the Times, and according to Stein and Draper, there are even projected dates for the event.

LeBron James reiterated once again that he has no problem with the NBA televising the second annual NBA All-Star draft.

In order for the event to be put on TV, both the NBA and the NBA Players Association had to sign off. Marc Stein of the New York Times says that while specifics are being worked out, the two sides have agreed to televise the event ahead of All-Star Weekend 2019 in Charlotte. "You got 24 of the best players in the world that's going to make the team".

This should have been televised a year ago, but better than late than never. James asked in response to whether or not televising the draft would be a good decision.

This is the best news for basketball lovers everywhere, especially those who loved LeBron James and Steph Curry picking the teams.

Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen in last year's game by a score of 148-145.

Still, expect King James to be the captain for the West with perhaps Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo being the captain of the East.

The league began contemplating making changes to the game's format as the league's talent became increasingly concentrated in the Western Conference. "But it all depends how much the captains are going to get into it, as far as their draft boards".
