Stephen Curry said that, if given the opportunity to be the All-Star Game captain, he would try and pick his Golden State Warriors teammates. Well, he got the opportunity, and that’s exactly what he did.

In the All-Star Game draft, Curry selected Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to be a part of his team. He was unable to snag Kevin Durant, who went to LeBron James with the first pick in the draft.

While the draft was not televised, Curry and James joined the NBA on TNT crew afterwards to talk about the process, and both seemed to be enjoying themselves.

One of the interesting storylines that emerged is that Curry took Thompson, Green, and Damian Lillard, three players who were called out by fellow All-Star Russell Westbrook.

Not surprisingly, Westbrook is not a part of that team, and will instead be sharing the court with Durant, his former teammate. James and Kyrie Irving will also be teammates once again on that team.

Here are the final rosters for the All-Star Game, which takes place on Sunday, February 18, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
