NBA All-Star Game Sneakers: LeBron 15, Harden Vol. 2 & more

NBA All-Star Game Sneakers: LeBron 15, Harden Vol. 2 & more

The 2018 NBA All-Star game is less than two weeks away. But there is simply little-to-no defense played in the Pro Bowl or NHL/NBA All-Star Games.

Captains LeBron James and Stephen Curry drafted players from the pool of All-Stars and the winning team gets a $350,000 donation from the National Basketball Association to the charity it chose. That was the highest-scoring ASG in history and guys were actually lying down on the court to let others dunk over them.

In an event usually known for the antics of the Hollywood celebrities participating, the athletes instead took over to display some solid hoops.

It's been a good year for Quavo, with Migos' new album "Culture II" debuting at No. 1. How is this a celebration of the world's best players and the league itself if not all 30 teams are represented in the game?

The All-Star game also has a big new wrinkle this season: Captains Stephen Curry and James picked their own teams.

We know Watson is a amusing guy, so maybe he's kidding.

It is rare for a team to be as consistent as the Kings in the modern National Basketball Association, where the worst teams each season usually get the best draft picks.

For the rest of the team who's not participating in the event, they will get a nice week off as Minnesota doesn't play again until Friday, Feb. 23 at the Houston Rockets (talk about a welcome back party). "They want to see us go at it and see us compete and that's what I try to do and that's what I try to tell my teammates to do". The vast majority of players were fine with it being televised but not all.

But this team was built with inside-out abilities and James, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis figure to be the nucleus it revolves around.

"With the original lineup, I felt like Team LeBron had a chance, but with all the injuries and replacements, not anymore". DeMarcus Cousins was set to start at center until his injury, while Prozingis of the Knicks, John Wall from the Wizards and LeBron's fellow Cav Kevin Love have all been ruled out as well.

HOMECOMING KINGS: The Los Angeles area is home to a number of All-Stars, including 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City and runner-up James Harden, along with Oklahoma City's Paul George and Toronto's DeMar DeRozan.

LaMarcus Aldridge will be the only Spur involved at the All-Star Game. Team Lakers was led by head coach, Rachel Nichols.

Most believe that Curry took Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo with his first pick. For the younger Curry, who plays for Golden State Warriors, this is his fifth All-Stars match. At the beginning of the year, Brooklyn Nets star Jeremy Lin injured his knee so bad, he couldn't even look at it. Huncho put on a show, finishing with a game-high 19 points, shooting 7-10 from the floor, and padding his stats with five boards and three dimes.

The World dominated from three-point range hitting 41 percent (23 of 56) of their attempts compared to just 27 percent for the Americans.

Singer/song writer Justin Bieber wasn't able to duplicate his MVP performance from the 2011 celebrity game, finishing with four points and two rebounds.
