68th NBA All-Star Game: Sunday, 8 p.m. ET (TNT)

Team LeBron vs. Team Giannis: For the second straight year, the two teams were selected using a playground-style draft. Top vote-getters LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo served as captains.

King of recruiting? LeBron might have ulterior motives during All-Star Weekend, as five of his first six picks -- Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis and Klay Thompson -- are able to hit the free-agent or trade market this summer. It's not "tampering," as Antetokounmpo joked on draft night, but it sure is something to watch this weekend.

We have a trade! Simmons, Westbrook switch sides: It was deadline day, after all. James and Antetokounmpo negotiated a blockbuster trade that sent reigning Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons to Team LeBron in exchange for OKC's triple-double machine Russell Westbrook. Was the deal fair? ESPN Insider Kevin Pelton grades the blockbuster move.

How was the player pool selected? The 10 starters were selected via a vote combination: 50 percent from fans, 25 percent from players and 25 percent from basketball media. The two starters with the most fan votes in each conference -- James from the Western Conference and Antetokounmpo from the Eastern Conference -- were named captains. The league's coaches made their selections for the 14 reserves.

On draft night, the captains picked from the pool of starters before moving on to the 14 reserves and a newly added third round featuring special roster additions Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki, all regardless of conference affiliation.

Betting line: Team LeBron (-6) vs. Team Giannis | Total 309.5 (via Westgate Las Vegas SportsBook)
