The NBA All-Star Game is a few weeks away, and later this week, we will know which players will make up the teams that will be involved. The starters have been known for some time, while the reserves were officially announced on Tuesday evening. Both captains, LeBron James and Steph Curry, will pick their teams in the coming days, and the two squads will be announced on Thursday.

By now you know that the team selections will not happen live, which is silly. It should be live, and ideally, that changes starting next year.

For now, though, we have to go with the next best thing: Two of us drafting ourselves and revealing the results. I flipped a coin and did not guess properly, meaning I will be Curry and draft second. Robby, meanwhile, will be James and draft first. We’ll go through the eight other starters before dipping into the reserves. This isn’t what we think LeBron and Steph will do, but instead what they should do in the All-Star draft. Let us dive in.

1. Kevin Durant (Team LeBron)
2. Giannis Antetokounmpo (Team Steph)
3. Anthony Davis (Team LeBron)
4. James Harden (Team Steph)
5. Joel Embiid (Team LeBron)
6. DeMarcus Cousins (Team Steph)
7. Kyrie Irving (Team LeBron)
8. DeMar DeRozan (Team Steph)
9. Russell Westbrook (Team LeBron)
10. Jimmy Butler (Team Steph)
11. Klay Thompson (Team LeBron)
12. Draymond Green (Team Steph)
13. Kristaps Porzingis (Team LeBron)
14. Karl-Anthony Towns (Team Steph)
15. John Wall (Team LeBron)
16. Damian Lillard (Team Steph)
17. Victor Oladipo (Team LeBron)
18. Kevin Love (Team Steph)
19. Bradley Beal (Team LeBron)
20. Kyle Lowry (Team Steph)
21. Al Horford (Team LeBron)
22. LaMarcus Aldridge (Team Steph)

So after that, here’s how the teams break down:
