Jordan Brand releases 2019 NBA All-Star Game uniforms

James and Antetokounmpo are captains, their perk for being the leading vote-getters out of the Western and Eastern Conferences, and nine of this year's 10 starters have been chosen to begin All-Star Games in the past.

Joining Irving and Walker as the East's starters are Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard and Joel Embiid.

If Ben Simmons is going to make his first NBA All-Star game, it will need to be as a reserve chosen by the coaches. Since Wade finished better in fan voting than Simmons, the Sixers point guard technically finishes fourth behind the Heat's future Hall of Famer.

Reserves will be announced January 31, based on the selections made by National Basketball Association coaches. From the West, Stephen Curry and reigning NBA MVP James Harden were the picks at guard, with James, Golden State's Kevin Durant and Oklahoma City's Paul George getting the frontcourt spots. Similar to last year's uniform color palette, team logos, player names and numbers all appear in black, and contrasting-color stars appear down each side as a tribute to past All-Star Game designs.

There's still a chance Rose can make the team if coaches vote for him as a reserve.

The media ranked Simmons the third-best East guard, fans had him in fourth while players had the Australian fifth.

The starters' selections were a product of voting from the fans (50 percent), players (25 percent) and media (25 percent), with fan votes serving as the tiebreaker.

Derrick Rose was projected to be a starter because he got so many votes, but the media and players voted for Harden and their votes outweighed the fans'.

Wade is one of four still-active past All-Star MVPs waiting to see if an All-Star nod is coming.

Through games of Wednesday, Curry ranks third in the league in scoring, averaging 29.3 points per game.

Given James' current status, it's unclear if he will take the court in Charlotte.

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo will square off once again in the All-Star game. From there, James and Antetokounmpo will choose their rosters on February 7, with conference affiliations irrelevant.
