STORY: Despite this being his 15th appearance in the NBA's midseason showcase LeBron James said he still enjoys being voted to start in the All-Star Game.

Speaking to reporters Saturday (February 16) at media day, the captain of Team LeBron said being recognized by the fans as one of the best players in the NBA still meant something to the three time NBA champion.

The league changed the All-Star Game format last year from eastern conference versus western conference to having two captains pick from the pool of all-stars with Giannis Antetokuonmpo being named the other captain.

Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, and Kawhi Leonard will start alongside James on Team LeBron while Steph Curry, Joel Embiid, Paul George, and Kemba Walker will start with Antetokuonmpo on Team Giannis.

Team LeBron reserves include Anthony Davis, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, Ben Simmons, LaMarcus Aldridge, Karl-Anthony Towns, Bradley Beal, and Dwyane Wade.

The Team Giannis bench is comprised of Khris Middleton, Nikola Jokic, Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, D'Angelo Russell, Nikola Vucevic, Kyle Lowry, and Dirk Nowitzki.
