NBA All-Star Game: What you need to know

The former National Basketball Association star joined ESPN's "First Take" on Thursday where he weighed in on LeBron's off-season prospects, surprising Stephen A. Smith when he suggested The King go ring chasing.

If ever you've seen it before, this Sunday's game is not going to be what you remember. The leading receivers of votes at each position in both the Eastern and Western conferences were selected as the starters.

DeMita, a social media sensation, is on Team Lakers.

First things first, the players are ranked on how good they are right now - this isn't a list about who has the most potential.

This year, the NBA All-Stars got comfortable with that process.

Unfortunately for those who love National Basketball Association gossip and drama, the draft itself, conducted by James and Curry weeks ago, remains shrouded in secrecy, so we don't know who chose - or passed on - who and when, all we know is LeBron had first pick. However, Love, Cousins, Porzingis and Wall will all miss due to injuries. "I had to make sure the left hand was still there".

He shot a 1-under 70 in the second round of the Genesis Open at Riviera before making his way to the LA Convention Center to play for Team Clippers. I think the effort on the defensive end will pick up and we won't see a game like last year's sloppy 192-182 finish. The coaches made a decision to choose Andre Drummond, Paul George, Goran Dragic and Kemba Walker as the four replacements.

Williams will be among eight players in the two-round, timed shooting competition. Quavo finished the game with 19 points and five rebounds, as Team Clippers won 75-66 over Team Lakers. It is an unjust system that favors big-time players, like James, Harden, Westbrook and Curry -- big-time markets such as New York, Washington, Boston and the greater Bay Area -- and success of the team in Golden State and Cleveland.

Team Lebron was the overwhelming favorite, but it got hit with the injury bug in the three weeks after the initial All-Star draft.

Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic got the NBA's All-Star weekend off to a running start.
