Just like last year, the upcoming Ulstar star LeBron James and Janis Antocampo will also serve as captains of the teams. The full list of fives ahead of the All-Star to be held on February 16 in Chicago was released tonight (Thursday through Friday) and raised expectations for the event.
Along with LeBron James in the Western Quarter, Luca Donchic, Anthony Davies, James Harden, and Kwai Leonard were selected. In the Eastern Quarter, the Greek Freak will play alongside Trey Young, Pascal Siakam, Joel Embiid and Kamba Walker. The one who is left out somewhat surprisingly is Jimmy Butler, who has been leading Miami for a surprising season so far.
The replacements will be selected by the captains in the draft, according to the new format, after the list is revealed next week.
