NBA All-Star Game Preview, Tips, and Odds

Davis - provided a shoulder strain doesn't keep him out - will finally be LeBron James' teammate Sunday night, when Team LeBron takes on Giannis Antetokounmpo's Team Giannis in the All-Star Game.

Irving reuniting with James seemed impossible just a few months ago, but it's become clear the former teammates have put the past behind them and now are on good terms.

"I'll say it's the NY in me, " Diallo said. Multiple NBA players Saturday re-iterated their support for Kaepernick - who remains unsigned - including James and Dwyane Wade, but Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins was especially outgoing in his support. This has resulted in a huge drop in team loyalty, as players hunt for teams that can get them championships so that they can have a legacy.

The Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James and the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo will lead a roster of 10 players selected by fans, fellow National Basketball Association players and a media panel to start at this year's All-Star Game. Even though he continued to stress that he has not decided whether to return for a 22nd season, but said he wanted to enjoy "for sure my last, obviously, All-Star Game".

Team Giannis had 53 points in the first quarter, tying an All-Star game record.

Durant went 4-for-4 from the field (3-for-3 from 3) in the fourth quarter as Team LeBron pulled away. Thompson gave a dismissive wave, as if to ask "Why'd I do that?" when Curry's 3 swished. But after the setback occurred, Davis made his intentions to play in the game known. Here are the full rosters for Team LeBron and Team Giannis.

J. Cole might not have thrown down the dunk attempt during Saturday's slam dunk contest, but the Fayetteville native ignited the crowd during his halftime performance.

Iverson expresses his great fondness of Curry's game as the two embrace.

"I love it", he said.

By halftime, George's All-Star statement was more demonstrative. "He's made a lot of money to this point and his needs are different and the clock is ticking, so I understand what he's all about".

When Kidd returned to the Mavericks in 2008 at age 34 and helped the Mavericks win the 2011 National Basketball Association title at age 38, Nowitzki was in his early 30s. When the third quarter ended, every player gathered behind them as Wade and Nowitzki were honoured with commemorative jerseys at midcourt. "Definitely one of those guys that gets overlooked". "They're keeping him really busy with appearances left and right, I saw".

Nowitzki, 40, is a 14-time All-Star who was immediately traded to the Dallas Mavericks after the Milwaukee Bucks selected him with the ninth pick in the 1998 draft.
