LeBron James loved Charles Barkley's hilarious Anthony Davis tampering joke

Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) greets Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) before an National Basketball Association game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

After the starters were selected, Antetokounmpo and James made a show out of the reserves, especially after Antetokounmpo picked his teammate, Khris Middleton first, setting up James' first bench pick, Anthony Davis.

Both teams were set Thursday, in the first ever televised NBA All-Star Draft, when LeBron James proposed a trade to Giannis Antetokounmpo. Since it was that time of year, James said would give Antetokounmpo Westbrook for Ben Simmons, another All-Star reserve.

Antetokounmpo asked James, "Isn't that tampering?"

The branding tactic is also meant to ensure that parents don't accidentally expose their children to something "R-Rate", due to a mislabelled product.

"Tampering rules do not apply on All-Star Weekend", James replied with a chuckle.

However, the topic of team building wasn't just isolated to the Bucks' front office as the team's superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo, tried his hand at filling out his All-Star team during Thursday night's All-Star Draft. They'll be joined in the Team LeBron starting five by Boston's Kyrie Irving, Toronto's Kawhi Leonard and Houston's James Harden. He followed that up with selecting Joel Embiid, Paul George and Kemba Walker, all in that order. That outcome was "definitely on objective", Antetokounmpo said. "I'm going with Dirk - I'm just kidding", he said with a hearty guffaw.

Prior to the draft, Antetokounmpo said that he planned on pairing Westbrook and Embiid together on his roster to help simmer their on-court rivalry, but he wasn't done there. The NBA signed off on the trade.

Antetokounmpo added Dirk Nowitzki as his special selection. "I'm going with my buddy, Dwyane Wade".
