Who will LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo select in the 2019 NBA All-Star Draft? We won't know for sure until Friday, but we decided to hold our own mock draft to get an idea of how it might play out.

Representing Team LeBron was NBA.com's Carlan Gay (@TheCarlanGay). Representing Team Giannis was NBA.com's Scott Rafferty (@crabdribbles).

Having received more votes from the fans, Team LeBron received the first pick of the draft. We then alternated picks, with Team Giannis going second, Team LeBron going third, Team Giannis going forth, and so on and so forth.

Once each round was completed - starters first, followed by reserves and legends - we simulated a game of NBA 2K19 to see which team would be crowned the champions in a winner-takes-all game.

Below are the results from our 2019 mock draft and simulation.
