The NBA All-Star game starters have been announced.

Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant will be the captain from the Eastern Conference, while Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James earned the honors from the Western Conference.

The rest of the starter by conference are as follows:

East: Kyrie Irving, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bradley Beal, Joel Embiid

West: Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic, Nikola Jokic, Kawhi Leonard

For Durant, this will be his 11th All-Star Game selection and his first as a captain.

He and James will select their teams for the game which is scheduled to be played on March 7.

James and Durant famously squared off in the NBA Finals when Durant was a member of the Golden State Warriors and James was on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The March 7th game won’t have as much on the line, but it should be just as entertaining as the league’s top stars compete.
