Well, this isn’t exactly the kind of news that Oklahoma City Thunder fans were hoping to hear just a couple of weeks before the start of training camp and a little over a month before the 2018-19 NBA season tips off.
Last year, LeBron James was the captain of one of the all-star teams because he was the top vote-getter in the Eastern Conference. Now, with LeBron signing with Lakers in Western Conference, it is going to be very interesting to predict the captain from the Eastern Conference. Who do you guys think it will be? My bet is on Milwaukee Bucks Greek Freak. So, it is very likely Stephen Curry and LeBron playing for the same team. Steph Curry will probably get the most All-Star votes with the best record so he will select first. If he doesn't select LeBron James and selects Kevin Durant.....Wow!
This footage proves one-on-one needs to be an event at NBA All-Star Weekend.
We know the new format and the top vote-getters will be captains and pick teams in the NBA All-Star game. The one thing you can guarantee is it will be the same captains as last year. I would say there is a 99.9% chance it will be Steph Curry and LeBron James again. Now with Steph Curry Warriors giving the old smackdown to James in the NBA finals. The big sweep! We know that the next time they will see each other will be in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game going up against each other. We know they both want bragging rights and NBA All-Star game MVP trophies to add to the collections.
For the first time in history, you have Michael Jordan who will go from playing in the 1991 NBA All-Star Game last time it was in Charlotte. Now in 2019, Jordan will host the league as the owner of the Charlotte Hornets. What an amazing accomplishment for MJ. The greatest of all time now owning an entire NBA franchise.
Now, the ten ideas. Some of them are easy fixes, some of them are wild, but all of them need to be heard.
