NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Brooklyn Nets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The stage is set for the NBA All-Star Game Sunday, March 7. Team Durant will be an All-Nets affair.

Kevin Durant, who represented Team Durant and remained captain despite not playing in the All-Star game due to his lingering left hamstring strain, played general manager as he selected his team. The Nets superstar finished first in Eastern Conference voting and second behind Lebron James overall.

The Nets superstar admitted prior to the draft he did not do any preparation as he based his picks based off prior competitive play.

So. No surprise, Durant selected Kyrie Irving with his first pick and James Harden as his first reserve pick.

Kristian Winfield reports Durant has chosen the United Negro College Fund (@UNCF) for Team Durant to represent in the All-Star Game, which means Team LeBron will represent the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The winner stands to net $1.25 million for their organization.

Below is the team Durant drafted in order.
