An exact date for the televised draft has not been revealed yet, but the Times reports January 30 and 31 have emerged as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast, depending on the availability of the two captains.

Last year, the National Basketball Association switched up the structure of the All-Star Game by allowing the two players who received the most votes in each conference to serve as captains.

Today, The New York Times' Marc Stein reported that the league will do just that. LeBron James and Steph Curry selected the 11 players for their team from the pool of All-Stars but, unfortunately, the draft process was conducted behind closed doors.

The NBA's second annual All-Star draft will be televised.

The NBA will televise the NBA All-Star Draft so we will finally know who was picked last. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time.

She also revealed how she underwent IVF in order to give birth to Malia, now 20 years old, and Sasha, now 17. She says Trump followed Clinton around the stage, stood too close, and tried to diminish her presence.

"I don't think you should televise that", Carmelo Anthony, a 10-time All-Star and member of the NBPA's executive committee, said in December. I don't think it'll be bad.

The league began contemplating making changes to the game's format as the league's talent became increasingly concentrated in the Western Conference. James won the 2018 All-Star MVP as Team LeBron defeated Team Steph. Depending on who represents the East this year as the captain, James, Curry or another West All-Star could be in for an awesome event when it's time to pick teams.

With James now in the West, there's no shot for he and Curry to both be captains again.

The 2019 All-Star game is in Curry's hometown of Charlotte, which could lend him to getting more votes.
