The NBA changed its format for the All-Star Game last season, scrapping the East vs. West battle and instead allowing two captains to select their teammates for the spectacle.

To add a new wrinkle in 2019, the Association will reportedly televise the draft. Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James believes there's no downside to the decision.

"What's bad about it? It's All-Star Weekend," James said, according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. "You got 24 of the best players in the world that's going to make the team. It doesn't matter if you're first or last, you're 24 of the best in the world at that point in time. I don't think it'll be bad. We'll see."

Last season, James heavily voiced his support for televising the draft, saying NBA players are "all grown men" and that "it doesn't stop your paycheck from coming."

The four-time MVP captained a team opposite Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry in 2018.

"It was great, me and Steph, we had a great time drafting on the phone just picking," added James. "Fantasy basketball for us. It was fun."

All-Star Weekend takes place Feb. 15-17 in Charlotte, N.C.
