LeBron James and Steph Curry chosen the 11 gamers for his or her staff from the pool of All-Stars however, sadly, the draft course of was performed behind closed doorways.
After the groups have been introduced, LeBron, Steph and others across the league stated they hoped the league would televise the draft in 2019. DeMar DeRozan informed reporters on the time, "Televise it. Give the folks what they wish to see. I believe everyone desires to see it. At the tip of the day, each single individual that will get picked, you might be an All-Star, so it does not matter the place you actually go, so I believe televise it."
Today, The New York Times' Marc Stein reported that the league will do exactly that. According to the report, the league and union have agreed to televise the All-Star Draft someday in late January, with the 30th and 31st rising "as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast."
Last season, LeBron James led all vote-getters with greater than 2.6 million votes - barely forward of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had the second most All-Star votes of any participant within the league.
