Additionally, each team will select a Los Angeles-based or national charity to raise donations for.

Under the new format, two captains will draft players from a pool of voted All-Stars (and reserves), with no conference affiliation considered. And it seems like a foregone conclusion who those captains would be. Wilbon: "When you start struggling like this to figure out ways to improve the All-Star Game, then you better do something dramatic". Who will be the last player chosen?

Curry has a unique responsibility as an expected captain. As Thompson joked, "I hope he picks us". The Boston Globe's Bob Ryan said, "I don't care what format they use".

The star became a household name the world over after starring in teen TV show Glee as bad boy and heartthrob Puck. Previously the actor reached a $2.7 million settlement with the woman, who sued him for sexual battery in 2011.

"I think it's great for the game to kind of spice it up a little bit", Curry said.

In no particular order, let's take a look at five potentially awkward situations that could emerge if the National Basketball Association makes the smart move and shows its fans this entire process. It should be fun to see how it plays out. That's bad news for Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz, two rising stars who are likely to be among the league's top 24 players but not among the top 12 in the West.

The NBA All-Star game would be a laughing stock if anybody actually watched it.

Worse still is the fate of longtime bridesmaids like Mike Conley of the Memphis Grizzlies, one of the best players never to make an All-Star Game. Indeed, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry believes the new format will add a dose of unpredictability to an event that had grown stale. It's tough. You have to tinker with it and I think this is a good step in the right direction.

The next one could be pretty exciting.

Naturally, there are no details regarding the character, or for how numerous four planned sequels Winslet will be a part of. In May, we learned that the film had tapped Fear The Walking Dead star Cliff Curtis for a leading role in the sequel.

The 2018 NBA All-Star game will be staged at Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 18. And this year, the infamous game is going to recieve a few changes. Let's just hope whoever is their All-Star game coach runs the triangle. If we need ball handling, distributing, both guys are there. The teams won't be known until the picks are made.
