Weigh in on changes to NBA All-Star Game

Specifics about the draft have not been detailed to this point.

Though players won't represent their conferences any more, the league still plans to choose 12 players from the East and 12 from the West. If Golden State's Stephen Curry (last year's top vote victor in the West) isn't tops in the West, will James add him to his team? The application will enter into force from this season.

After the two teams combined for an All-Star Game record 374 points in last season's showdown between the two conferences, National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver said he wanted to see changes so players treated it close to the way they would a regular-season game.

The process of selecting the All-Stars won't change. Then the seven reserves per conference are still selected by the league's head coaches.

And it just made an often tedious game far more interesting. if the players go harder.

I'm interested. There will be a lot of discussion of who should pick whom due to playing style and fit, plus you know we're all going to read free agent moves into who players pick as teammates (even though we all know we shouldn't).
