LeBron James Wants All-Star Captains To Pick Teams At Saturday Practice

Share

If you're the superstitious type, you might be thinking that James' team is cursed. Dascha Polanco, Caleb McLaughlin, and even a Property Brother - Drew Scott - got into the game.

The team is now 10th in offensive efficiency after scoring 107.2 points per 100 possessions and is seventh in defense by allowing 104.1 points per 100 possessions.

"I'm going to play my hardest", he said, with a smile. Team LeBron vs. Team Steph. "In the last couple of years, the games haven't been good, and we're all aware of that". How is this a celebration of the world's best players and the league itself if not all 30 teams are represented in the game? This year, however, the injury may prove much more costly.

The NBA keeps making smart moves to improve the quality and fan interest in all the events of All-Star Weekend and this is no different. Last season, it was midseason knee surgery that forced him to miss the NBA's annual star-studded event. This will be the first-time ever in which the best of the East will not be going up against the best of the West. "Team LeBron is not cursed". LaMarcus Aldridge is also on Team LeBron, but is questionable to play with injury. Curry was able to get his teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green on his team. "He already got what, four rings?"

On Saturday at 1:00 p.m., this year's Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductees will be announced, with the All-Star Saturday Night to follow at 8:00 p.m. on TNT. "It'll be a cool experience".

Forget Kevin Durant and LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal might have been the best duo in National Basketball Association history.
