(I always wanted to do an "official" thread)

Anyway, did you see the Teams?

Which one do you think will win (LeBron or Steph)?

Funny how LeBron choose Steph and Steph chose Love, huh?

Wait... did they announce the teams yet?

I also wish they could've come up with team names other than Team Steph and Team LeBron. Are they gonna seriously put those on the jerseys? I know they can't put East and West anymore... but is putting another man's name across your chest the answer? Nevah!

anybody else disappointed in the selections?

All the rivals are on the same team smh

Would have loved to see KD and Kyrie opposite Lebron and Westbrook. There's no good storylines with this. Maybe the league should pick the teams next year

How the top picks probably went down:

Lebron: KD
Steph: Giannis
Lebron: Kyrie
Steph: Harden
Lebron: Anthony Davis
Steph: Embiid
Lebron: Cousins
Steph: Derozan

I think this is good too. The media will probably use the "reunion" angle. KD and Westbrook playing together again. LeBron giving the assist to Irving. Stuff like that.

We also got Steph vs. KD, which isn't as dramatic but should still fun.

thats about how I'm seeing it as well. Lebron could have very easily picked up Harden instead who is a better player than Kyrie and would have crippled Curry's starting lineup by leaving it void of a strong facilitator.

With Cousins suffering a season ending injury, I wonder if Paul George or Chris Paul will fill his All-star spot?

That is because all the major stars (except LeBron) are in the West!

The West would be a big favorite but the East would still have an amazing roster. Besides Lebron there would be guys like Giannis, Irving, Embiid, Derozan, Porzingis (well before the injury anyway), etc. Thereís plenty of talent to pick from all the teams in the East.

If the West has a roster that is so good that they are expected to overwhelm a roster with the best players in the East, as a fan thatís even more intriguing to me.

So much for team Lebron. With a 4th injury it pretty much ruins the game.

So it's confirmed: Lebron the GM is a curse and the kiss of death.
