The All-Star starters have been named, as have the captains of the teams in LeBron James and Stephen Curry.
The 10 starters for the NBA All-Star Game were unveiled on Thursday, but who plays for which team is still to be determined. So like the National Hockey League, the NBA will divvy up teams playground-style with the top two vote-getters in each conference acting as the captains. And the first four picks by each captain must be made from the pool of starters.
The other starters will be James Harden, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins from the West and Kryie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid from the East. James and Curry will pick their starting teammates from this group.
Team James goes with Durant, Davis, Harden and DeRozan; Team Curry's starters are Antetokounmpo, Irving, Cousins and Embiid.
All-Star balloting is broken up into three parts: Fan voting counts for 50 percent, media voting 25 percent and player voting the final 25 percent.
LeBron James has been named the 2018 NBA All-Star starter and team captain for his 14th consecutive NBA All-Star start - the longest streak in NBA history. This is looking like a very strong pool of players for Curry and James to pick their teams from.
