LeBron-Kyrie Reunion And 9 Other NBA All-Star Game Interactions

These relationships will make things interesting

Team captains LeBron James and Stephen Curry have already made their picks for the 2018 NBA All-Star Game.

The King went for size (Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kristaps Porzingis), while Chef opted for shooting (James Harden, DeMar Derozan, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard). The most glaring observations that could be made are that there are three Warriors on one team and a couple of ex-teammates in another.

These types of interactions are sure to spice up an otherwise noncompetitive exhibition match. And while we won't be seeing a Joel Embiid-Andre Drummond showdown, we do have these juicy storylines below:


MEH

Kevin Love-Russell Westbrook

The UCLA stars gets to relive their college days. Although it would've been better if James also drafted Love's Little League teammate, Klay Thompson.

Kevin Durant-Stephen Curry

This might be Durant's only shot at "revenge" (with Westbrook) on his current squad after what happened during the Western Conference Finals in 2016.

DeMarcus Cousins & Anthony Davis-Bradley Beal & John Wall-Jimmy Butler & Karl-Anthony Towns-DeMar DeRozan & Kyle Lowry

With past teammates grabbing headlines, present ones are out to steal the show. If only Curry had selected Irving, then his team would have three pairs.

James Harden-Victor Oladipo

It would be interesting to see the two players that were traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder and greatly flourished elsewhere have a go at each other.

Damian Lillard-LaMarcus Aldridge

Out of all the "exes" in this game, this breakup has the least drama. Wouldn't it be fun to watch Lillard cross Aldridge up, or the latter dunk on the former?

YEAH

Damian Lillard-Russell Westbrook

The Dame beef that counts. It escalated just recently, when Westbrook threw shade at Lillard while discussing teammate Paul George getting snubbed.

Giannis Antetokounmpo-Kristaps Porzingis

More than the MVP trophy, Porzingod and the Greek Freak will be vying for the title of "Unicorn." This is going to be a case of All-Star rookie versus sophomore.

LeBron James & Kyrie Irving & Kevin Love-Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson & Draymond Green

At least for one night, rekindle the classic 2016 NBA Finals. Add Harden and Durant to Team LeBron, Harden and Embiid to Team Stephen and you're good to go.

Kevin Durant-Russell Westbrook

Looks like last year's kumbaya moment between the estranged duo wasn't enough. You have Petty James to thank for setting up yet another alley-oop.

LeBron James-Kyrie Irving

So much for addressing the elephant in the room. Everyone thought that James wouldn't pick Irving—except, he does the exact opposite and is waiting for Uncle Drew to throw it off the backboard, just like old times.
