Irving - who asked to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers over the offseason, and reportedly threatened to sit out the year if he wasn't moved - was chosen by James to play on his squad. New Orleans Pelicans twin towers Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, along with Warriors scoring machine Kevin Durant, will join the former Cavs teammates in the starting lineup on LeBron's side.
Curry's lineup will be comprised of himself, Houston's James Harden, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan, Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Philadelphia's Joel Embiid. The reserves had been announced earlier this week.
