ABOUT TEAM LEBRON: Captain LeBron James is participating in his 18th All-Star Game and he selected Los Angeles Lakers teammate Anthony Davis to play up front with forward Kawhi Leonard (Los Angeles Clippers) and guards James Harden (Houston Rockets) and Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks) rounding out the starting five. Lakers coach Frank Vogel is running a team that has big-time experience on the bench in point guards Chris Paul (Oklahoma City Thunder) and Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets) while also having first-time All-Stars such as Doncic and forward Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics). "Gonna be genius coaching in All-Star Weekend," Vogel told reporters with a chuckle. "Go try hard. They're not gonna try hard, so if we try hard we have a good chance to win."

Nick Nurse of the Toronto Raptors will be coach of a group that includes six first-time All-Stars in Young, Siakam, big man Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat), forward Brandon Ingram (New Orleans Pelicans), and guard Donovan Mitchell and center Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz.
