NBA All-Star 2020: Game may no longer have an Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference format, but that won’t be completely evident when the 2020 edition of the game tips off.
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James and Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo are both serving as All-Star captains for the second consecutive year. And when the two stars drafted their respective teams in a playground-style format Thursday night, they didn’t veer from their conferences at first.
James drafted all the available starters from the Western Conference, including Lakers teammate Anthony Davis. In contrast, Antetokounmpo wrote all the starters from the Eastern Conference. So it will be East vs. West when the starters take the floor to begin this year’s All-Star Game.
