On Thursday, the latest round of fan voting for the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles next month revealed that LeBron James and Steph Curry were leading the pack in their respective conferences. They upended Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant, who were the top vote-getters after the early returns came filtering in just a week prior.

If the trend continues, that means LeBron and Steph will be crowned team captains under the revised format and therefore be responsible for drafting their squads from among the pool of players selected for the league’s annual midseason event.

That was excellent news for Durant, who apparently wants no part of having to draft a team from among a group of his peers and all the political and interpersonal drama that would ostensibly accompany it.
