After getting voted as an All-Star captain, Giannis Antetokounmpo said he wants to bring Joel Embiid and Russell Westbrook together on the same team.
Embiid and Westbrook had a minor scuffle towards the end of the Thunder’s 117-115 win over the Sixers last weekend.
Westbrook said afterwards that he and Embiid were “not cool”.

Getting these guys on a the same team would be a fantastic story-line. You have to make the All-star game somewhat interesting.
Looking forward to the All-star draft.
