Getty LeBron James led the 2018 All-Star fan voting, and will be a captain along with Steph Curry,

NBA fans have a better sense of the 2018 NBA All-Star rosters tonight, as the 10 starters were announced on TNT’s NBA Tip-Off on Thursday night.

For the first time in the game’s history, the teams will be selected like a fantasy draft rather than via the traditional conference affiliation. LeBron James and Steph Curry were the top two players in the fan voting, and will be the two captains picking the teams. James and Curry will draft their teams and the squads will be announced on Thursday, January 25 at 7 p.m. Eastern.

The players that make the All-Star game rosters will be determined based on a combination of the fan voting, players and basketball media. Here’s how NBA.com explains the process.

The 10 starters – two guards and three frontcourt players per conference – will continue to be chosen by a combination of fans (50 percent of the vote), current players (25 percent) and basketball media (25 percent). The NBA’s head coaches will still select the 14 reserves, voting for two guards, three frontcourt players and two players at any position in their respective conferences.

The final captain spot came down to Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyrie Irving and Curry. One interesting difference, the media voted Kristaps Porzingis as a starter over Joel Embiid. The 2018 NBA All-Star Game will take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 18 at 8 p.m. Eastern on TNT.

Here’s a look at the 10 starters for the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. The actual teams will be determined after the draft.
