NBA All-Star Game draft to be televised, report says

NBA All-Star Game draft to be televised, report says

Though a set date has not been fixed, January 30 and 31 appear to be two likely targets for a TNT broadcast, according to sources familiar with the plans.

The NBA introduced a new All-Star Game format past year, in which a pair of captains drafted their teams based on which players were voted to the game by fans.

Chris Broussard and Rob Parker react to the news that the NBA All-Star Game, this year, WILL televise this selection process but Rob isn't on board thinking that the opportunity was missed last year and there's no real story or drama this year. The draft was described by "playground-style" by the Times, and according to Stein and Draper, there are even projected dates for the event.

However, captains LeBron James and Stephen Curry both agreed after the draft that it should have been shown to the fans.

"We're All-Stars. Let's have a draft.' So it sounds like we're going to have a televised draft next year".

"What's bad about it?"

The only problem was the draft wasn't televised, leaving fans curious from the order of selections to who was selected last. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time. I think everybody wants to see it.

Everyone loved the idea, and the game was a success with Team LeBron edging Team Stephen, 148-145, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. "It's All-Star Weekend", James told reporters before Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves when asked if broadcasting the captains' choices would be a good thing.

James and Curry were the first captains to partake in the process last season.

Now that we're into the 2018 season, the National Basketball Association is gearing up for the 2019 All-Star Game.
