After last year’s success with the NBA All-Star Game selected by captain’s LeBron James and Stephen Curry, the league has opted to expand its coverage of the game. The NBA and Players Association have agreed to televise the drafting of the two player-made teams on TNT. The drafting will take place on either January 30th or 31st. Last season, the drafting process was held behind closed doors. James and Curry both agreed that the event should be seen by fans. Some were worried that doing the draft on television would embarrass or show up players taken later in the draft. Are they right? Might this create some acrimony amongst players?
