The Philadelphia 76ers will have two representatives in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, with Joel Embiid starting for Team Giannis and Ben Simmons coming off the bench for Team LeBron.

Giannis Antetokounmpo - the first-time captain - led everybody with 38 points on 17 for 23 shooting for the club he drafted.

"This is definitely going to be a special one", Nowitzki said.

"Just being the leader of a team, it wasn't as tough as I thought", Antetokounmpo said.

Wade would not get a significant amount of minutes in this game, but it would still be exciting to watch him and LeBron complete a transition alley-oop connection for one last time. East showdown and replaced it with teams picked by the two players from each conference with the most all-star votes. There's a ton of talent and, although this is an exhibition, we love to see the guys start to care down the stretch and turn it up a notch. And when Dirk made another 3 early in the second quarter, the Team Giannis sideline, the arena and Twittersphere went insane, with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeting "That's what you do @swish41 III". "The closest I can be to home here in Charlotte, so that's great for me to have a lot of family and friends come down to hang out with me".

"We're very thankful for this opportunity", said Wade, who finished with seven points and four assists for Team LeBron.

Wade and Nowitzki were featured in a video presentation inside the arena during the game.
