LeBron James named starter for 2018 NBA All-Star Game

Whoever comes out of the West will be named the captain of the other All Star team, opposite LeBron James. Starters were decided upon via a weighted average of each players' finish under each voting faction, with the fan vote breaking any ties.

Below you'll find the list of the most random players to receive multiple votes from their colleagues as an All-Star starter (we didn't include random one-offs like Cedi Osman) broken down by East frontcourt, West frontcourt, East backcourt and West backcourt.

Curry and James received the most votes in their conferences and will serve as team captains, drafting from a pool of starters and reserves for next month's game in Los Angeles. Throughout NBA history, 30 players have made 11 or more All-Star Games over the course of their careers.

Then, if they do make the team, they'll have to wait until next Thursday to see if they are playing for Captain LeBron James or Captain Stephen Curry.

The All-Star game is set to happen on February 18 in Los Angeles, California.

Though both players were ejected after Bjelica put Afflalo in a headlock, only Afflalo was punished Thursday by National Basketball Association executive vice president of operations Kiki VanDeWeghe.

Under Armour, Inc. (UA), Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (FOXA)
Of those analysts, 1 rate stock as a Strong Buy, 0 rate it as Hold, and just no analyst rates it as a Moderate Sell. The stock was trading at a distance of -6.81% from its 52-week highs and stands 111.38% away from its 52-week lows.

"Captain huh? Really Appreciate all the votes from the fans, media and players!" James, Antetokounmpo, Irving and DeRozan were all considered locks to be starters, while the same was true for Curry, Harden, Durant and Davis.

Perhaps it will be Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, whom James came from behind to edge with 2.6 million votes. He is on pace to break Moses Malone's franchise single season record of 31.1 ppg set in 1981-82.

The format was changed from the traditional East vs.

Houston's James Harden, Golden State's Kevin Durant and New Orleans teammates Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins joined Curry as starters voted in from the Western Conference. This could also potentially mean that Curry and James will be shaping the outlook of the All-Star game rosters.

For the second straight season, starters were selected by weighted votes, with the fan vote accounting for 50 percent of the result, with voting by media and current players counting for 25 percent each.

However, the draft will not be televised.
