NBA All-Star 2019: LeBron James team – Full roster includes Durant, Irving, Leonard, Davis – Express

The NBA All-Star weekend is just around the corner and fans are eagerly sizing up the two teams ahead of the main event.

The 2019 match has seen the implemented yet again, with captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo taking it in turns to fill up their rosters.

Players could be selected for either side regardless of whether their team features in the Eastern or Western conference – creating some fascinating match-ups in both camps.

James opted for Kevin Durant as his first pick, despite the Golden State Warriors ace criticising James in the past.

The NBA legend then turned to former Cleveland Cavaliers team-mate Kyrie Irving, who now plys his trade with the Boston Celtics.

The ‘Western Conference’ team was bolstered further by the heavyweight additions of Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard and James Harden of the Houston Rockets.

Anthony Davis and Klay Thompson are among the star-studded reserves for James’ team, but just who else made the cut?

The NBA All-Star match will take place on Sunday, 8pm ET (1am GMT) at the Spectrum Centre in Charlotte, North Carolina.
