For the second time, National Basketball Association captains will draft All-Star teams before the game is played in 2019.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - LeBron James enjoyed picking his All-Star squad with Steph Curry last season and doesn't see a downside to watching that process play out on television this season.

The draft will likely be aired on TNT and January 30 and 31 are looking like potential target dates, depending on the availability of the two captains. "It's All-Star Weekend", James said when asked if televising the captains' choices would be a good thing. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time.

The NBA introduced a new All-Star Game format previous year, in which a pair of captains drafted their teams based on which players were voted to the game by fans. I don't think it'll be bad.

The NBA opted not to televise the draft in 2018, when Stephen Curry and LeBron James served as team captains.

James said the entertainment value would come down to who is chosen captains. West to a playground-style in which two captains picked teams among a pool of All-Stars from both conferences. Depending on who represents the East this year as the captain, James, Curry or another West All-Star could be in for an fantastic event when it's time to pick teams.

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