Zach LaVine Will Play For Team Durant in the 2021 All-Star Game

Chicago Bulls

Kevin Durant put some respect on Zach LaVine’s name Thursday night.

LeBron James and Durant sat down on TNT for the annual All-Star Game Draft, and with his 4th pick in the reserve round, Durant picked the Bulls first-time All-Star. The selection took LaVine off the board before Paul George, Jaylen Brown, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Domantas Sabonis, Julius Randle, and Nikola Vucevic. In fact, Durant even said he was “very excited” about this particular selection, which was followed by a “that boy got game” stamp of approval by James. That’s some respect.

Here is a look at LaVine’s teammates and who he will matchup against:
