Kevin Durant doesn't want to pick All-Star team

Stephen Curry: "Why not?"

According to the new format of the NBA All-Star Game, the player who receives the most votes in each conference will serve as a captain, choosing his team from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant wouldn't like to pick the teams if he ended up being the captain of the Western Conference.

"I don't want to do it," Durant told The Athletic. "I'd rather somebody else do it. It's cool to be an All-Star, but all the extra stuff ... I just want to go play in the game. [The new format]'s cool, a different way, a creative way that's good for the fans. But me, I'll let somebody else pick the teams."

Durant's teammate Stephen Curry is on board with the new format of the All-Star Game.

"Why not?" Curry said. "I'll be the first to usher in the new system. I used to go to the playground all the time, and you wanted to be the guy picking teams. That meant you were something on the court back in the day. It'll be a cool vibe to see how it all shakes out and how unique you can make the lineups."

Curry is currently the Western Conference leader in the All-Star voting with about 1.37M votes, followed by Durant who has received 1.33M votes.

Voting will conclude Monday.
