The 2018 NBA all stars nba 2018 когда All-Star game will tip off at 8 p.m. ET on Feb. 18 in Los Angeles’ Staples Center. This is the fourth time the All-Star game has been played in L.A.; the Staples Center most recently played host to the exhibition in 2011.

This year’s All-Star game deviates from the traditional East vs. West format that had been in place since the inaugural game in 1951. The All-Star rosters are still made up of 12 players from each conference, but the two teams were drafted by the game’s leading vote-getters and captains, LeBron James and Stephen Curry.

The new format is a response to the lack of competition in recent years; the Western Conference has won six of the last seven games, with the East’s last win coming in 2014. This change is one of many reasons to tune into this year’s game. In addition to the All-Star draft, the NBA has increased winners’ earnings to restore high-level competition.

James and Curry drafted their teams from the pool of All-Stars, playground style. Here's a look at each All-Star roster.

The two captains selected from some of the league’s brightest stars, including Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis and James Harden.

Players that have never been in the same conference were put together, and of course, some guys who might not be so fond of one another ended up on the same team. Though the order of picks was not made public, selections did not disappoint.

Team LeBron took Kevin Durant with the first-overall pick and later selected Durant's former Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook. The most recent chapter in the saga between Durant and Westbrook was marked by a fiery exchange in late November, but the two are All-Star teammates once again.

That won't be the only reunion on Team LeBron. James will play alongside former Cavs guard Kyrie Irving for the first time since he was traded to Boston last offseason. The two have been amicable in each of the two Cavs-Celtics games this season, but new details surrounding their break up seem to emerge weekly.

Team Stephen has some interesting selections as well. Curry’s first choice is thought to have been Giannis Antetokounmpo. Smart decision, as he avoids a repeat of last year, at least at the hands of Giannis.

Curry also wisely selected Warriors teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. The trio will go against Kevin Durant for the first time since beating him in the 2016 Western Conference Finals as a member of the Thunder.

Team Stephen’s starting lineup will also feature first-time All-Star Joel Embiid. With Embiid on Team Stephen and Russell Westbrook on Team LeBron, we have been gifted a third round of Embiid vs. Westbrook. This will be fun.

Karl-Anthony Towns joins Embiid as Team Stephen’s first-time All-Stars, while Team LeBron’s Bradley Beal, Victor Oladipo and Kristaps Porzingis are also first-timers, although Porzingis will miss the festivities after tearing his ACL. DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall, who were set to play for Team LeBron, will also miss the game due to injury. Paul George will replace Cousins; Andre Drummond will replace Wall.
