Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert of the NBA-leading Utah Jazz were the last two players selected in the draft for Sunday's All-Star Game, and their availability led to a hilarious sequence near the end of the broadcast that aired Thursday night on TNT. The actual draft was conducted on Wednesday with captain LeBron James picking for Team LeBron and captain Kevin Durant selecting for Team Durant to fill the rosters for this Sunday's 70th All-Star Game in Atlanta.
LeBron, Antetokounmpo, Curry to start with Lillard coming off the bench as the sixth man? That's not fair.
From a young age, every Jazz fan realizes something is different about rooting for the Utah Jazz than for fans of every other team. Growing up, I always wondered why, in a game where Karl Malone would decimate everyone in his path, the highlights would focus on the other team, even if the Jazz had beaten them. On SportsCenter a young Kobe Bryant would get all the screen time during the ESPN highlight of a midseason Jazz/Lakers game with the final score showing a Jazz 10-point victory.
