Team captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo selected the rosters Thursday, with James getting the first pick of the starters and Antetokounmpo selecting first among the reserves. LeBron's starting lineup consists of Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Doncic, James Harden.

After two rounds in the draft on Thursday evening for the All Star game on February 16, it looked a lot like the super team the Lakers had thought of last summer.

It was generally expected that James Davis would be the first in the overall ranking, even when he joked at Lakers Shooter that he was surprised that his seven-time All-Star team-mate was chosen at all.

Also on the Giannis team: Miamis Bam Adebayo, Utah's defensive standout Rudy Gobert and jazz teammate Donovan Mitchell, Miamis Jimmy Butler, Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Brandon Ingram from New Orleans.

"There is no wrong choice", said James. See below and attached for the complete pick-by-pick results and the team rosters for the NBA All-Star Game. "We are all all-stars, they are all all-stars for a reason". The scores are reset after the first and second quarter and the scores are added after the third quarter.

According to Antley, the evidence that led to the discovery of Faye's body was found inside a trash can outside of Taylor's home. Taylor had no criminal history, was unknown to police and wasn't any kind of acquaintance of the Swetlik family's, Antley added.

Team Giannis will wear the red Jordan Brand NBA All-Star 2020 uniforms and Team LeBron will wear the blue Jordan Brand NBA All-Star 2020 uniforms.

All players in the LeBron team wear number 2, in honor of Gianna Bryant.

James' team will work for Chicago Scholars to help children become first-generation college students. Both teams will wear jersey patches displaying nine stars, representing Kobe, Gianna and their seven friends and teammates who tragically passed away in a helicopter accident on January 26.

Thunder point guard Chris Paul will represent Team LeBron in the All-Star game.

"Win, Lose, or Draw I LOVE being able to play the game I fell in love with as a lil kid growing up back in the projects of Akron Ohio!" the three-time National Basketball Association champion captioned. The target number will be the amount scored by the team in the lead during the first three quarters combined plus 24, paying tribute to the number Bryant wore for the second half of his career.
