Birds of a feather flock together. Deer of a herd...draft their teammates for the All-Star game? It doesn't have a nice ring to it, but it'll be fun to watch for Bucks fans. Giannis Antetokounmpo drafted teammate Khris Middleton to his "Team Giannis" roster for the NBA All-Star game. The Bucks' duo becomes a trio, coached by Miked Budenholzer in the showdown of superstars on Feb. 17. With Team Giannis and Team LeBron set following the All-Star draft on Feb. 7, here's how things shook out:

Team Giannis Starters

Giannis Antetokounmpo - MIL

Stephen Curry - GSW

Joel Embiid - PHI

Curry was Giannis' first pick, as anticipated, and the second name off the draft board. The final pick of the first round, Kemba Walker, gives Team Giannis the lone hometown Hornet; the game is being played in Charlotte.
