Milwaukee Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo selects his All-Star team

Giannis thinking of drafting Curry with 1st All-Star pick

After choosing Durant first, James then added former Cleveland teammate Kyrie Irving to his team.

"Isn't that tampering?" Antetokounmpo asked with a smile, provoking laughter from James and the "NBA on TNT" hosts who were commenting on the draft.

Giannis's comment garnered some laughs from LeBron as well as the National Basketball Association on TNT cast of Shaq, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, and Ernie Johnson.

Giannis's team features other starters Paul George, Joel Embiid, Kemba Walker and Stephen Curry; the reserves are Khris Middleton, Nikola Jokic, Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, D'Angelo Russell, Nikola Vucevic, Kyle Lowry and Dirk Nowitzky.

"I might pick Steph because he picked me first past year, so I've got to return the favour", Antetokounmpo said after Milwaukee's 113-94 victory over Brooklyn.

Ariana Grande pulls Grammy performance after spat over music, report says
After releasing her fifth studio album, " thank u, next ", Ariana Grande was reportedly supposed to perform at the 2019 GRAMMYs . But the 25-year-old singer has made it clear before: she's not a pushover in this industry.

Nowitzki and Wade were selected to the All-Star team as special additoins by National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver. James was the No. 1 overall selection by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 National Basketball Association draft and Miami took Wade with the No. 5 pick in the same draft.

Antetokounmpo was pretty happy with his slick move: "I'm playing mind games", he jokingly said. James coveted Ben Simmons and convinced Antetokounmpo to work out a deal for Russell Westbrook. That left Nowitzki for Antetokounmpo's side. "Even though I love the process of everything that I go through to be able to compete every single night and put teams in position to compete for championships, there's nothing that I'm chasing or that I feel I need to end my career on". "I'm just kidding. I'm going with my buddy Dwyane Wade". However, talks between the Pelicans and Lakers are "dormant" and there's no expectation that the teams will talk on Thursday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"I didn't have to lobby for it", Wade said. Two years later, Wade convinced James and Bosh to come play with him.

Barkley's suggestion prompted laughter from the two captains, who were tasked with picking four starters in the first round and seven reserves in the second round each. Denver coach Michael Malone will make his All-Star debut, coaching Team LeBron. James and Curry were the captains past year, but the order of their picks were not revealed or aired.
