LeBron, Giannis choose their teams for the All-Star Game

After they drafted their rosters for the NBA All-Star Game this evening, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo consummated a hilarious trade. James got the first pick among the pool of starters by nature of being the league's leading vote-getter, while Antetokounmpo got the first pick once it time to pick reserves.

TNT host Ernie Johnson jabbed at James asking if he was sure he wanted Davis to be his teammate, to which he responded he was "very sure".

Nowitzki will also participate in the 3-point contest during All-Star weekend and will coach rookie teammate Luka Doncic in the Rising Stars game.

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (23) drives on Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young (21) during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019. Team Giannis, in addition to Antetokounmpo, will start Golden State's Stephen Curry, Philadelphia's Joel Embiid, Oklahoma City's Paul George and Charlotte hometown favorite Kemba Walker.

President Trump speaks at National Prayer Breakfast
It is meant to bring bipartisan political leaders and their religious counterparts together to meet, pray and build relationships. Eisenhower has attended that annual breakfast, which typically includes members of Congress and foreign dignitaries.

"Isn't that tampering?" Antetokounmpo asked.

"Everyone in the world knows who I'm going with and I'm going with Dirk", James said, before pausing to laugh at his joke. That outcome was "definitely on objective", Antetokounmpo said. Last year wasn't televised, but fortunately, this year was, after James himself said it should be.

After the draft, James traded Westbrook for Simmons, a fellow Klutch Sports client, so Lillard will team up with both James and Simmons, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, Davis, Thompson, Aldridge, Towns, Beal and Dwyane Wade, who was a "special selection" along with Dirk Nowitzki, with the remainder of the players making up Antetokounmpo's team.
