On paper, LeBron’s team is easily seen as the heavy favorites, as it consists of James himself, Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant, Boston Celtics’ Kyrie Irving, Toronto Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard, and Houston Rockets’ James Harden as the starters.
Giannis on the other hand selected Warriors’ Steph Curry, Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid, Oklahoma City Thunder’s Paul George, and Charlotte Hornets’ Kemba Walker.
The reserves for Team LeBron are New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis, Warriors’ Klay Thompson, Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard, OKC’s Russell Westbrook, San Antonio Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge, Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl Anthony-Towns, and Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal.
For his special pick, LeBron chose long-time friend Dwyane Wade to complete his team’s reserves.
Rounding up team Giannis are Milwaukee Bucks teammate Khris Middleton, Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic, Sixers’ Ben Simmons, Detroit Pistons’ Blake Griffin, Brooklyn Nets’ D’Angelo Russell, Orlando Magic’s Nikola Vucevic, and Raptors’ Kyle Lowry.
Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki is the special pick of Antetokounmpo.
Looking at how each roster is assembled, it is easy to see why everybody is picking Team LeBron to win, but don’t overlook Team Giannis. It has great talent too. They got Curry, who we all know can light up the scoreboard anytime he wants.
No wonder why he isn’t too worried.
