Publish date:

The rosters for the NBA's 68th annual All-Star Game are set.

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo announced their All-Star roster selections during the first-ever televised All-Star Draft, which aired on TNT on Thursday. The two captains selected their teams from a pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference.

In 2018, the league switched the format of the All-Star game from East vs. West to a playground-style game. The two captains can draft their players regardless of conference affiliation. The leading vote-getter from each conference is named the captain.

The 2019 All-Star Game, featuring Team LeBron vs. Team Giannis, will take place on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. ET at Spectrum Center in Charlotte. The game will air on TNT.

James had the first pick in the draft, Antetokounmpo gets the first pick in the second round and James got the first pick in the third round.
