Milwaukee Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo selects his All-Star team

Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry lays up a shot against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of an NBA basketball game on Saturday

Since it was that time of year, James said would give Antetokounmpo Westbrook for Ben Simmons, another All-Star reserve.

Magic Johnson tabled six offers for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis but has been snubbed with every bid.

"Those top teams in the East, yeah, they're going for it. Toronto is going for it, Milwaukee's going for it, Philly".

But the Pelicans kept Davis as the trade deadline passed, so for now, their time as teammates will be limited to All-Star weekend and James pounced at the chance to grab him with the second pick of the reserve round.

The order in which players were taken in last year's draft was not officially revealed, although much of it leaked out, and the fact that this year's would be televised caused some speculation about how embarrassing it would be for whomever was picked last. James pulled a fast one on fans, pretending to select Nowitzki before eventually going with his longtime friend. "Now I have to go into shuffle mode now". But the Milwaukee Bucks star did say Monday where he thinks he'll start building his team.

"Pop is going to tell me I can only play him two minutes", James said, likely only half-seriously.

After choosing Durant first, James then added former Cleveland teammate Kyrie Irving to his team.

James, the leading All-Star vote receiver this season, had the first overall pick. James took Davis, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook, LaMarcus Aldridge, Karl-Anthony Towns and Bradley Beal.

"He better pick me", Wade said Friday after the Heat's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at AmericanAirlines Arena. James and Curry were the captains previous year, but the order of their picks were not revealed or aired.

Note: Westbrook traded from Team LeBron for Simmons after draft.
