National Basketball Association will televise All-Star Draft in January

The draft will likely be aired on TNT and January 30 and 31 are looking like potential target dates, depending on the availability of the two captains.

Last year, the National Basketball Association switched up the structure of the All-Star Game by allowing the two players who received the most votes in each conference to serve as captains.

Last season, of course, Steph Curry was one of those team captains, and with the Warriors rolling, there is a great chance that either he or Kevin Durant will end up as the captain from the Western Conference, even with the addition of LeBron James.

As the league looked to further the sport and remain a pioneer of sorts, the 2018 NBA All-Star Game saw notable changes both on and off the court.

The new format for the All-Star Game features two captains - the leading vote-getter from each conference - picking their team's playground style from the available pool of All-Stars.

LeBron James reiterated once again that he has no problem with the NBA televising the second annual NBA All-Star draft. The New York Times was first to report the news. DeMar DeRozan told reporters at the time, "Televise it. Give the people what they want to see".

"What's bad about it?"

Perhaps the most interesting sublot of the All-Star voting is who will win the Western Conference captaincy between Curry and James. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time.

After the teams were announced, LeBron, Steph and others around the league said they hoped the league would televise the draft in 2019.

James and Curry were the first captains to partake in the process last season.

Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen in last year's game by a score of 148-145.

It's a draft for the NBA All-Star Game.
