LeBron James drafts Kyrie Irving as 2018 NBA All-Star rosters are announced

Much ado has been made of the fact that today's All-Star team draft by captains LeBron James and Steph Curry would not be televised.

Many were speculating as to whether LeBron would avoid selecting former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Kyrie Irving to play for his starting 5 after their relationship has appeared to be strained, but with today's announcement, that doesn't seem to be the case:

Boston Celtics big Al Horford was selected to represent Team Curry, so unfortunately Horford and Irving will be on opposing teams instead of getting the opportunity to play together.
