Joined by Cris Carter and Jenna Wolfe, Nick Wright delves deep into the psyche behind LeBron James and Steph Curry's All-Star draft picks, detailing who won the draft and who will ultimately win the game.

- LeBron's team's going to be, probably, an 8 point favorite, when Vegas sets the line on this. I think LeBron, if I'm doing the math right on this, I think LeBron took advantage of the fact-- not only did they have the number one pick, so he could get the best player available in Durant.

But also, I think he banked on the fact that Curry would bet what I bet. Which is that LeBron wouldn't draft Kyrie. Because Curry either drafted DeMar DeRosen, or Joel Embiid, before Kyrie Irving. That doesn't make a ton of sense. And you are like, oh, we are already had a point guard. Well, it's the all-Star team. Like that doesn't really matter.

I think Curry thought he was going to be able to take Kyrie at the end of the starting draft. He wasn't. And then LeBron added to his team by-- Curry drafted his teammate, Klay Thompson, early. Which allowed LeBron to get the best, by far, of all the reserves, Russell Westbrook. So Lebron's team is the favorite is the better team, here. I don't even think that's like an argument.
