  • Giannis thinking of drafting Curry with 1st All-Star pick

The Lakers this week were in repeated talks with the Pelicans, and at one point offered what felt like the entire Lakers roster outside of James for the star, along with multiple draft picks.

After they drafted their rosters for the NBA All-Star Game this evening, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo consummated a hilarious trade.

TNT host Ernie Johnson jabbed at James asking if he was sure he wanted Davis to be his teammate, to which he responded he was "very sure".

It took a trade, but Paul George and Russell Westbrook will both play for Team Giannis in the All-Star game. He would later add former teammate Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, and James Harden as his starters. He then proceeded to add some global flavor between his picks of Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic and Philadelphia 76ers maestro Ben Simmons, all first-time All-Stars as well. I think it's going to be random.

James then added close friend Dwyane Wade with the NBA's "special selection" in the draft, which was televised this year for the first time.

The format of having two team captains - selected by virtue of getting the most fan votes in their respective conferences - draft their all-star teammates without regard to conference is in its second year, but Thursday marked the first time the process was televised.

Davis told the Pelicans he wanted a trade, and James has made it clear that he'd love to play with him.

LeBron kicked off the the fun draft by picking Kevin Durant.

"Kevin Durant", Antetokounmpo said.

True to draft form, the opportunity to trade then resulted in James and Antetokounmpo trading Simmons (who James referred to as "his guy") for Russell Westbrook.

"I didn't have to lobby for it", Wade said. You can tell the trade rumors are getting to the team's young guys, especially with the effort they put forth in IN last game.
