Since NBA All-Star match has been changed, and there is no more classical duel between the East and the West, the captains of the divisions are choosing the players. Since LeBron James got the most votes in the West, and Giannis Antetokounmpo in the East, they got the chance to chose the players and to make the team.

LeBron had the right to have the first pick and he chose Kevin Durant as his first pick and Giannis chose Stephen Curry. Janis picked Nikola Jokic in the early phase of the draft, while LeBron had other picks.

Take a look at the picks:

NBA All-Star weekend will be on from February 15 to 17th in Charlotte. Serbia will have representatives in all three evenings. Bogdan Bogdanovic will play in the first match "Rising Star", while Nikola Jokic will participate the second day in the skills competition, and the All-Star game itself, which is the central event.
