Steph Curry Wants To Be A Captain, Durant Just Wants To Play

Published

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The new results for the 2018 NBA All-Star game were released with Lebron James and Steph Curry leading all players. Steph has a slim lead over his fellow Warriors teammate Kevin Durant.  Curry currently is in second place with 1,369,658 votes and is right behind him with Durant 1,326,059.

Under the revamped format, two captains will draft the 2018 All-Star teams from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves, making selections without regard for conference affiliation.  The captains will be the All-Star starter from each conference who receives the most fan votes in his conference.

But the two former NBA MVPs have different thoughts on picking teams under the new format. Curry is excited and KD just wants to ball.

“Why not?” Curry said. “I’ll be the first to usher in the new system. I used to go to the playground all the time and you wanted to be the guy picking teams. That meant you were something on the court back in the day. It’ll be a cool vibe to see how it all shakes out and how unique you can make the lineups.”

Durant is a fan of the changeup but would like to avoid the politics of picking a team.

“I don’t want to do it,” Durant told The Athletic. “I’d rather somebody else do it. It’s cool to be an All-Star, but all the extra stuff … I just want to go play in the game. [The new format]’s cool, a different way, a creative way that’s good for the fans. But me, I’ll let somebody else pick the teams.”

Checkout the results below.

The 67th NBA All-Star Game will be held on Feb. 18.

The Los Angeles Lakers are not giving up on signing a big star to play with Lebron James.

On Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (via Real GM) provided updates on both situations, starting with the Lakers’ desire to keep their future assets for possible talks with New Orleans.

“Here’s the line they have to walk: They’re not going to give away picks and their top young players in some deal that makes them incrementally better this season because they have to save all those assets for Anthony Davis, a big trade this summer either pre- or post-free agency,” he reported.

The Lakers are also interested in signing Kawhi Leonard in the summer of 2019.

Dwayne Wade And Lebron James Share The Court One Last Time

Dwayne Wade and Lebron James played their final game against each other in the Staple Center on Monday night.

This is a bitter-sweet moment that both players have been dreading since Wade announced that this would be he would be retiring at the end of the year.

James spoke to ESPN about the impact that Wade had on his career. “Obviously, without D-Wade in my career, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this résumé that I have,” said James. “Individually, I think I would still be doing my thing individually, but as far as me accomplishing the team goals that truly mean most to me? Twenty-seven wins in a row. Four straight Finals. Two back-to-back championships. It goes without saying. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without him.”

Wade had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Lebron was able to force him into a bad shot from the arch.

“He knew my move at the end that stopped me from getting to my shot,” Wade said. “That’s how well we know each other, man. Just two competitors who enjoy the game of basketball, who love each other and love competing. So I’m glad that in my 16 years that we were on the court together, we was in this game, we’ve made a big impact on and off the court.”

It was clearly tough for both players and great moment to witness.
