The 2018 NBA All Star starters, and the two captains, will officially be announced tonight at 6pm ET on TNT, prior to the Thursday night double-header. That said,'s Joe Vardon has already revealed that LeBron James will be one of the captains.

LeBron, who led all-voters after the second round of returns was revealed, reportedly won the overall fan vote for the second straight year. As Vardon notes, that likely means LeBron will get the first pick in the upcoming All Star draft.

The 10 All Star starters will be determined by a combination of fans (50% of the vote), current players (25%) and basketball media (25%). At last count, Steph Curry led the Western Conference by a narrow margin over his teammate Kevin Durant, who has already expressed that he does not want be tasked with picking his All Star teammates.

Whoever comes out of the West will be named the captain of the other All Star team, opposite LeBron James. Details of the All Star draft have not been announced, but NBA commissioner Adam Silver has already stated that it won't be televised.

The NBA All Star reserves, as voted on by the NBA coaches, will be announced during a TNT broadcast on January 23rd. The results of the draft will follow on January 25th.
