LeBron James and Kevin Durant have picked their teammates for this weekend’s All-Star game and if Quin Snyder were coaching Team Durant, it’d be a clean sweep for Duke fans since Durant picked all three former Devils for his team: Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson will all be on Team Durant.

With a frontcourt of James, Antetokounmpo, Jokic backed up by Doncic and Curry, that’s not going to be easy to beat, not that it matters much: one of the great traditions of the NBA All-Star game is that no one plays defense.

Here’s the breakdown for Team Durant:

  • Pick 1: Kyrie Irving, Nets
  • Pick 2: Joel Embiid, 76ers
  • Pick 3: Kawhi Leonard, Clippers
  • Pick 4: Bradley Beal, Wizards
  • Pick 5: Jayson Tatum, Celtics
  • Pick 6: James Harden, Nets
  • Pick 7: Devin Booker, Suns
  • Pick 8: Zion Williamson, Pelicans
  • Pick 9: Zach LaVine, Bulls
  • Pick 10: Julius Randle, Knicks
  • Pick 11: Nikola Vucevic, Magic
  • Pick 12: Donovan Mitchell, Jazz

And Team LeBron:

  • Pick 1: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks
  • Pick 2: Stephen Curry, Warriors
  • Pick 3: Luka Doncic, Mavericks
  • Pick 4: Nikola Jokic, Nuggets
  • Pick 5: Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers
  • Pick 6: Ben Simmons, 76ers
  • Pick 7: Chris Paul, Suns
  • Pick 8: Jaylen Brown, Celtics
  • Pick 9: Paul George, Clippers
  • Pick 10: Domantas Sabonis, Pacers
  • Pick 11: Rudy Gobert, Jazz
