The NBA recently announced the first returns of the All-Star fan voting, in which Giannis led LeBron by just 7,336 votes.
In new #NBA All-Star format, top vote getter in each conference will be a captain & get to draft his team. I asked @Giannis_An34 who he would select with the first pick. His answer may not surprise you, but his reasoning is classic Giannis: pic.twitter.com/yQUttzgWLm

Have you thought about who you would take first if you had the chance?
Giannis: “First of all, if my teammates are available, I’m going with my teammate.
“But if not, I got to go with LeBron James, best player in the world, so we could have a good relationship for the free agency.
“You never know, he might come play (in Milwaukee) [laughs].”
