The NBA Makes HUGE Change For 2019 All-Star Game ️

The NBA Makes HUGE Change For 2019 All-Star Game ️

A firm date for the televised draft has not yet been established, but January 30 or January 31 have emerged as two potential targets for a TNT broadcast, according to the people, who were not authorized to discuss the plans publicly.

Once the National Basketball Association chose to ditch the classic East-West format for the annual All-Star game for a draft by two captions, everyone wanted one thing: for the draft itself to be televised. That pool of players is then drafted by the two captains. The league found a ideal new way to conduct the All-Star Game, yet still managed to screw up a big part of it.

The teams will be selected by the two captains, which are determined by the leading vote getters.

The NBA's second annual All-Star draft will be televised. The New York Times was first to report the news.

After whiffing and missing an opportunity to cash in on the popularity of televising captains LeBron James and Steph Curry drafting their respective All-Star squads last season, it will indeed happen this season.

This should have been televised a year ago, but better than late than never.




But if there was a bit of a letdown, it came with the All-Star Game draft not being televised. I think everybody wants to see it.

Added Curry: "Hopefully we're both the captains again and we can broadcast it to the world in real time".

The 2019 All-Star game will take place on February 19.

The league began contemplating making changes to the game's format as the league's talent became increasingly concentrated in the Western Conference.

Last season, Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen 148-145.
