Adam Silver Explains That Stephen Curry Prevented The All-Star Game Draft From Being Televised

 

As you all know, the All-Star Game format has been revolutionized for this year.

For the first time in All-Star Game history, two captains (the All-Star starters with the most fan votes in their respective conferences), LeBron James and Stephen Curry drafted the All-Star teams from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves.

Unfortunately, this draft wasn’t televised. According to Adam Silver, Stephen Curry was the one who asked him not to televise the draft. That’s what Silver told Rachel Nichols on ESPN’s ‘The Jump’.

 

 

But, in a recent podcast, Brian Windhorst of ESPN provided the entire starter round of the All-Star Draft (plus the first pick of the reserve round).

 

Starters:

1. Kevin Durant (picked by LeBron James)

2. Giannis Antetokounmpo (picked by Stephen Curry)

3. Anthony Davis (LeBron)

4. James Harden (Curry)

5. Kyrie Irving (LeBron)

6. Joel Embiid (Curry)

7. DeMarcus Cousins (LeBron)

8. DeMar DeRozan (Curry)

Reserves

1. Klay Thompson (Curry)
