    The rivalry continues ­– Stephen Curry and LeBron James will be the 2018 All-Star Captains. Each player will draft from the remaining players to create two teams.

Harden, Antetokounmpo, James, Davis, Durant, Cousins and DeRozan are 7 of the top ten scorers in the league. Curry and James are legends and will make fantastic captains this year. Most notably missing from the roster currently is Russel Westbrook and Jimmy Butler.
