Lebronís going to be the leading vote getter in the east, thatís a guarantee. Now I wonder if heíll purposefully avoid picking up any Warriors that are in the pool, or if heíll pick up Curry with the first pick to show that he isnít bitter. I like this new format, for now...

Hope someone selects a scrub like Austin Rivers to show how idiotic this is.

The players are selected in the same fashion as last year, except instead of being assigned to a roster based on conference, theyíll be chosen by a captain.

Don't see the point of this other than to mask the huge disparity in talent between conferences. How does this foster more "competitivenes" exactly?

Or he may pick Steph Curry or Durant and then go Jeff Galilooey on their @ss in the locker room.

LeBron so dominant he made them do this

Folks, this is what happens when one man dominates a conference for a decade

What exactly can he say to either one? One is 2-1 vs him in the finals while the other just embarrassed him in last year's finals.

Only interesting thing about this is the choice of Captain Lebron on GSW players.

Game will be as bored and lacking competitiveness as last 10 years.

LeBron doesn't get to choose who the all-stars are. The voting of who is an all-star remains. The only difference is that the player with the most amount of votes in each conference gets to do a "you pick, i pick" deal with the players that were voted to be all-stars
