Luka Dončić has been chosen as James LeBron's third pick to play alongside his childhood idol in the 2020 All-Star game on Sunday, February 16 in Chicago.
The rosters of both teams as drafted by their captains, James LeBron and Giannis Antetokounmpo, are as follows:
Starters: (in order drafted): Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Dončić, James Harden
Reserves: Damian Lillard, Ben Simmons, Nikola Jokić, Jayson Tatum, Chris Paul, Russel Westbrookm, Domantas Sabonis
Starters: Joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam, Kemba Walker, Trae Young
Reserves:Khris Middleton, Bam Adebayo, Rudy Gobert, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Brandon Ingram, Donovan Mitchell
Before this draft Luka expressed a wish to play as a teammate of his childhood hero LeBron, and now that wish seems to be coming true. It is not yet entirely clear whether Dončić will also actually be able to play due to his injured ankle, which he sprained about a week ago. According to some estimates, however, Dončić will be ready to play for the All-Star game a week from now and LeBron seems to be counting on Luka's recovery.
The game starts on Sunday, February 16, at 8:20 PM UTC+5. That is Monday morning at 2:20am in Slovenia.
