LeBron James has at least one theory as to why teams in the East made big moves ahead of Thursday's trade deadline. In his final season in the NBA, Wade will get to play in his final All-Star Game, though, thanks to commissioner Adam Silver's special invitation Friday for the three-time champion guard and Nowitzki, a former champion in his own right. "I'm going with my buddy, Dwyane Wade". James was the No. 1 overall selection by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2003 National Basketball Association draft and Miami took Wade with the No. 5 pick in the same draft.
The 2019 NBA All-Star Game will be played on February 17.
Beal added at the time, though, "Y'all can pick me last, man. It doesn't change anything". When Antetokounmpo took Simmons minutes before, James used an expletive and exclaimed, "You took my guy!"
With the first overall pick, James selected Kevin Durant while Antetokounmpo chose Stephen Curry as the Greek Freak eventually took Joel Embiid and then Paul George.
After the teams were created, James and Antetokounmpo made a trade, with James sending the Thunder's Russell Westbrook to the other side in exchange for the 76ers' Ben Simmons.

One new report claims that Ariana Grande and the team behind the awards show had a disagreement over her song choices. Despite these creative obstacles, Ariana has chose to not let her fans bear the brunt of this.
Of course, Westbrook and Embiid are not friends after a few run-ins over the past couple of seasons, including a collision between the two players last month as the Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers played. "I have no idea, but he's always in his feelings".
Charles Barkley also poked fun at LeBron, suggesting that if Antetokounmpo really wanted Davis on his All-Star team he could follow the Lakers' example. Instead, the player nicknamed "The Greek Freak" wound up with a notable amount of global players on his roster, including Embiid, Nowitzki, the Nuggets' Nikola Jokic and the Magic's Nikola Vucevic.
Antetokounmpo had been adamant about trying to pick six-time All-Star Stephen Curry first, thereby returning the favor of Curry picking him first past year.
Prior to the draft, Antetokounmpo said that he planned on pairing Westbrook and Embiid together on his roster to help simmer their on-court rivalry, but he wasn't done there.
