Antetokounmpo and LeBron James are the captains of the two All-Star teams that will play in the All-Star Game in Chicago on February 16.

"I know you're all surprised", he said as the draft unfolded on TV. The captains drafted their respective teams on TNT Thursday, and Giannis had a amusing moment when deciding between Harden, Kemba Walker and Trae Young. See below and attached for the complete pick-by-pick results and the team rosters for the NBA All-Star Game.

"There is no wrong choice", said James. Not great for Team Giannis!

James played with his next selection and got Luka Doncic from Dallas, although the Slovenian star now has a sprain on his right ankle.

He also got first dibs on the reserves and picked his teammate Khris Middleton first followed by first time all-star Bam Adebayo, Rudy Gobert, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Brandon Ingram and Donovan Mitchell.

"Took me a trip to the final a year ago", Antetokounmpo said when he took Lowry.

James added Philadelphia Ben Simmons, Denver Nikola Jokic, Boston Jayson Tatum, Oklahoma City veteran Chris Paul, Houston Russell Westbrook and Domantas Sabonis from Indiana. "We are all all-stars, they are all all-stars for a reason". As previously announced, Team Giannis will wear No. 24 and Team LeBron will wear No. 2 - the basketball jersey numbers of the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, respectively. All 9 uniforms have a 9-star patch to commemorate the 9 deceased.

For the third straight year it'll be Team Giannis vs Team LeBron in the All Star Game. The new format will also showcase each quarter as a mini-game for charity before an un-timed quarter with a target score that will decide the victor.

LeBron James caught the attention of everyone in the Staples Center after an electrifying highlight in the third quarter against Houston Rockets Thursday night.

Westbrook joined LeBron James and Oscar Robertson as the only players with 20,000 points, 7,000 assists and 6,000 rebounds.

As part of the new format for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, the two teams will compete to win each quarter for their designated charities.
