LeBron James And Kevin Durant Will Be Captains For NBA All-Star Game

LeBron James of the reigning champion Los Angeles Lakers will be an All-Star captain, again. And Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant will be his opposition.

James and Durant were the leading fan votegetters in the Western and Eastern Conferences for the All-Star Game, meaning they’ll be captains for the matchup in Atlanta on March 7. James will start for the 17th time, extending his record, and Durant is an All-Star for the 11th time.

Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (19) and Kobe Bryant (18) have more total All-Star selections than James.

“The NBA All-Star game in Atlanta will continue our annual tradition of celebrating the game and the greatest players in the world before a global audience,” Commissioner Adam Silver said.
