NBA All-Star draft for the 2022-23 season: What are the changes?

One of the biggest changes that we will see this year is in the draft. Previously, for the last 3 editions, the draft was held on NBA on TNT. It took place in a live broadcast where the team captains had to pick their players from the pool of All-Stars.

However, for this season, it will be done as a live segment right before tip-off. And the playground feel of choosing your team right before tip-off is sure to make fans and players excited.
