The 2023 NBA All-Star weekend will take place Friday through Sunday in Salt Lake City, Utah.
This will be the 72nd All-Star game played in the NBA’s history. The game was first played at the Boston Garden in 1951 and has become one of the most celebrated parts of the NBA’s season.
This will also be the sixth season in which captains – the leading vote-getters in each conference – will lead the teams in the game. The Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James will lead one squad while the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo will guide another.
James has captained each of the six seasons since this style was introduced, while this will be Antetokounmpo’s third (Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant captained the Eastern Conference as a member of the Brooklyn Nets in each of the last two seasons).
Here are the All-Stars as listed by each conference.
Note: Unlike previous seasons, the All-Star teams will be selected right before the game Sunday.
