The NBA All Star 2021 is taking shape and, facing Sunday’s game, the captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant -who will not play due to injury- selected the players who will accompany them in the game.
With the 22 most voted players available, both players met in a video call broadcast by the US network TNT to choose their teammates.
Thus, the star of Los Angeles Lakers selected Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic and Nikola Jokic to accompany him in the starting quintet, while as substitutes, he chose Damian Lillard, Ben Simmons, Chris Paul, Jaylen Brown, Paul George, Domantas Sabonis, and Rudy Gobert.
On the other hand, the crack of Brooklyn nets formed a starting quintet with Kyrie Irving, Joel Embiid, Kawhi Leonard, Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum, which will be accompanied by James Harden, Devin Booker, Zion Williamson, Zach LaVine, Julius Randle, Nikola Vucevic, and Donovan Mitchell as alternates.
