National Basketball Association to Televise All-Star Draft

2019 NBA All-Star Draft To Be Televised On TNT: Report

2019 NBA All-Star Draft To Be Televised On TNT: Report

LeBron James and Steph Curry selected the 11 players for their team from the pool of All-Stars but, unfortunately, the draft process was conducted behind closed doors.

According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, the NBA and the NBA Players Association have agreed to broadcast the captains of the Eastern and Western Conference squads selecting their teams in late January for the 2019 All-Star Game, which will be held in Charlotte.

The National Basketball Association already won the popular vote this summer, becoming the first American professional sports league to hit 30 million followers on Instagram, but it stole the show again after Election Day with a new feature that will undoubtedly boost the hype of the NBA All-Star Game even more.

Why was the draft not televised in the first place?

"We're All-Stars. Let's have a draft.' So it sounds like we're going to have a televised draft next year".

This should have been televised past year, but better than late than never.

No matter how it comes together, a televised All-Star draft will definitely be exciting to see. I think everybody wants to see it. But LeBron James, John Wall and literally every fan did. The game was much more competitive as Team James beat Team Curry 148-145. "It's All-Star Weekend", James told reporters before Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves when asked if broadcasting the captains' choices would be a good thing.

"I think, obviously, there are certain personalities that can add to it", James said.
