Nigerian-born Antetokounmpo to captain NBA All-Star team

The Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James and the Milwaukee Bucks’ Nigerian-born Giannis Antetokounmpo of Greece lead the list of 10 players – two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference – to start in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.

As the All-Star starters who led their respective conferences in fan votes during NBA All-Star Voting, James and Antetokounmpo will serve as team captains and draft the All-Star Game rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference.




The captains will draft the eight remaining players from the starter pool in the first round and then all 14 players from the reserve pool in the second round, making selections without regard to a player’s conference affiliation or position. The team rosters for the 68th NBA All-Star Game will be revealed on February 7.

The 2019 NBA All-Star Game, featuring Team LeBron vs. Team Giannis, will take place on Sunday, Feb. 17 at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
