When the NBA decided to switch things up for their annual showcase of supreme NBA talent, the All-Star Game by allowing team captains determined by fan votes to craft teams they probably didn’t envision it being so lopsided. The first-ever NBA All-Star Draft has come and gone and according to the eye test and Twitter, Team LeBron is the Monstars and Team Steph is the Toon Squad minus Michael Jordan.
They really should have televised this event cause this just doesn’t make sense.
Folks are still scratching their heads trying to figure out exactly how Steph Curry allowed LeBron to construct such a team. Bron’s super team is comprised of his former sidekick Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis as starters and his bench features Bradley Beal, LaMarcus Aldridge, Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo, John Wall, Kristaps Porzingis and his current Cavs teammate/scapegoat Kevin Love.
How in the hell did this happen? To rub salt in the wound LeTroll James even tweeted that process should have been televised to the masses.
Now to be clear here Team Steph isn’t comprised of scrubs either a line-up with James Harden, Joel Embid, DeMar DeRozan and Giannis Antetokounmpo as staters and Damian Lillard, Jimmy Butler, Draymond Green, Kyle Lowry, Klay Thompson, Karl-Anthony Towns and Al Horford rounding out the bench is formidable.
BUT again the eye test says otherwise and Twitter paid their respects to Team Steph early.
Who can blame these folks for feeling it might be a wrap for Team Steph before tip-off of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. BUT like Kevin Garnett screamed after winning an NBA championship, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. We just hope we get a competitive game for the most part cause they tend to be laughers.
