NBA All-Star’s Walk of Fame

The 67th NBA All-Star Game will once again pit LeBron James versus Stephen Curry, who have been named team captains after finishing as the All-Star starter from each conference who received the most fan votes in his conference. Team LeBron vs. Team Stephen will take place on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 8p on TNT and see each choose the team rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves under a new format.
