While a firm date and specific format for the televised draft has not yet been confirmed, January 30 and 31 have emerged as two potential targets for TNT broadcast.

Fans are still asked to choose the game's starters from the Eastern and Western conferences, but instead of dividing the teams by region, the leading vote-getter in each conference gets to pick any 11 All-Stars to be on his squad. The NBPA said the decision to not televise was because there wasn't a consensus among the players who could be affected. Both sides wanted to see how the new format played out before televising it because it was the first time team captains selected their All-Star squads.

A year ago was the first time the National Basketball Association used a draft process to fill out the All-Star squads.

"What's bad about it?"

After the teams were announced, LeBron, Steph and others around the league said they hoped the league would televise the draft in 2019. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time.

She told the television station: "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken". Others just trashed her memoir as a waste of trees.

The league began contemplating making changes to the game's format as the league's talent became increasingly concentrated in the Western Conference. I think everybody wants to see it.

Still, expect King James to be the captain for the West with perhaps Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo being the captain of the East.

Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen in last year's game by a score of 148-145.

"I think, obviously, there are certain personalities that can add to it", James said.

The 2018 All-Star game was a huge success.
