Let's Guess the All-Star Game Draft Order Because the NBA is Wack And Won't Tell Us

The NBA has left us to our own devices when it comes to their All-Star draft. All we can do is imagine.

The league elected to televise their first-ever playground-style draft for the All-Star game. They bypassed all the beautiful drama that could have — and surely did — ensue during that horrible process that ruined teenage lives (or at least just mine).

We know that LeBron James and Steph Curry were team captains and general mangers. They were in charge of drafting teams. We also know LeBron had the first-overall pick, but he wouldn’t tell ESPN who he took with that pick (obviously Kevin Durant). He then insisted the event be televised next year, which is great. But also, come on — just tell us what happened this year.

Before we dive in, here’s a look at the final rosters:

The draft was snaking format with two rounds. In the first round, the captains picked the players who had been voted starters. In the second round, they picked the reserves. For simplicity, we ignored the NBA’s rounds, and just went pick-by-pick.

Round 1

LeBron: Kevin Durant
Curry: James Harden

Round 2:

Curry: Giannis Antetokounmpo
LeBron: Anthony Davis

Round 3:

LeBron: Kyrie Irving
Curry: Joel Embiid

Round 4:

Curry: DeMar DeRozan
LeBron: DeMarcus Cousins

Round 5:

LeBron: Russell Westbrook
Curry: Klay Thompson

Round 6:

Curry: Draymond Green
LeBron: Kevin Love

(Quick note: I think Steph leads the charge on picking his teammates and so LeBron panics a little and grabs Love to prevent drama.)

Round 7

LeBron: Kristaps Porzingis
Curry: Kyle Lowry

Round 8

Curry: Karl Anthony-Towns
LeBron: LaMarcus Aldridge

Round 9

LeBron: Bradley Beal
Curry: Jimmy Butler

Round 10

Curry: Al Horford
LeBron: Victor Oladipo

Round 11

LeBron: John Wall
Curry: Damian Lillard
