The NBA Will Reportedly Televise Its All-Star Game Draft In 2019

2018 NBA All Star Game

2018 NBA All Star Game

The new format for the All-Star Game features two captains - the leading vote-getter from each conference - picking their team's playground style from the available pool of All-Stars.

ESPN confirmed that the NBA and NBA Players Association have agreed to televise the two All-Star captains selecting their squads for the 2019 All-Star Game in Charlotte. According to the report, the league and union have agreed to televise the All-Star Draft sometime in late January, with the 30th and 31st emerging "as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast".

A firm date for the televised draft has not yet been established, but January 30 or January 31 have emerged as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast, according to the people, who were not authorized to discuss the plans publicly. The NBPA said the decision to not televise was because there wasn't a consensus among the players who could be affected. LeBron James and Stephen Curry revealed their rosters on national television but would not specify the order in which players were selected.

"What's bad about it?" I don't think it'll be bad. "At the end of the day, every single person that gets picked, you are an All-Star, so it doesn't matter where you really go, so I think televise it".

With James now in the West, there's no shot for he and Curry to both be captains again.
