The NBA will televise its draft for the 2019 All-Star Game, The New York Times’ Marc Stein reports.
Introduced during last year’s event, the NBA All-Star Game will once again see starters from the Eastern and Western conferences get voted in by the fans, and then the leading vote-getter from each conference get selected as team captains to choose his 11 other players — playground style.
Though it was seen as a great idea, many fans and even one of the captains of last year’s team, yearned for the entire process to be televised.

The 2019 NBA All-Star Game itself will take place on Feb. 17 in Charlotte.
