For the first time, the NBA televised its draft for the All-Star Game, with leading vote-getters LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo alternating between picks out of the player pool of All-Stars.
On the Raptors side of things, Kawhi was picked 5th of eight starters to Team LeBron, while Lowry was the second-last pick in the draft going to Team Giannis — these teammates will be going head to head!
It didn’t take long for viewers to pick up on a little trend in LeBron’s selections, when he picked such players as Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis and Klay Thompson. What’s the common theme here? They’re all free agents this summer!
Also picking up on this tidbit was Giannis, and he hilariously had something to say about it.
Giannis sending shots! After he said what everyone was thinking, the floodgates burst open.
