The 2018 NBA All-Star Game ballot is in, and the captains are exactly who you’d expect to reflect sheer dominance in each conference.

Under the new format, the top vote-getters in each conference, in this case, LeBron James and Steph Curry, will be named captains. LeBron and Steph will select their teammates from the pool of players who were voted as starters and reserves, making selections without regard for conference affiliation. Because LeBron had the most votes overall, he’ll get first pick in the draft.


In total, 12 players from each conference will be chosen for the All-Star spots, giving LeBron and Steph a pool of 22 players to choose from. The NBA’s head coaches will select the 14 reserves, voting for two guards, three frontcourt players and two players at any position in their respective conferences. The All-Star reserves, as selected by NBA head coaches, will be revealed on January 23d at 6 pm ET on NBA on TNT.

The NBA really dropped the ball by not televising the All-Star draft, so we won’t know the teams until they’re revealed by TNT on January 25th.
