National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver had signalled that changes to the All-Star Game were coming after this year's event in New Orleans, which ended in a farcical 192-182 victory for the Western Conference over the Eastern Conference.
In an attempt to revitalize the NBA All-Star Game, there will be no Eastern Conference vs. the Western Conference at the 2018 All-Star Game in Los Angeles.
Instead, two fan-voted captains will select their teams regardless of the players' conference affiliation - though each conference will still have 12 players in the overall pool.
The other major change to the game this year is that it will be played for charity. "We're looking forward to putting on an entertaining show in LA".
In another new feature, the 2018 All-Star teams will play for charity.
The NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles next year is likely to resemble a more competitive - and more exciting - pickup game after changes announced by the league Tuesday. The highest vote-getter from each conference will earn the title of captain, and they'll pick their team like they're back on the playground.
There will still be 24 players, overall, selected for the All-Star team with the fans, players, and media all voting for the 10 All-Star starters same as previous year. Voting will be open from Christmas Day until hours before the release of the starters. In addition to Anthony, Jimmy Butler and Paul George were also traded from East to West for younger players, while Paul Millsap signed with the Denver Nuggets as a free agent.
Now while the actual game format will be different, the voting process will remain unchanged. Coaches will select the reserves - two guards, three frontcourt players and two players from any position. Specifics about the draft have not been detailed to this point.
This new All-Star game format is interesting.
