The NBA All-Star Game isn't until Feb. 16, but fans and experts already have a good idea of who will win it after Thursday's draft.

For the second year in a row, team captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo picked opposite each other to create the top lineups possible out of the other 22 All-Stars. There is a lot of talent on both squads, but the social media world thinks Team LeBron is better thanks to the additions of Anthony Davis and Kawhi Leonard, among others.

Mike Singer @msinger

Team LeBron, where Nikola Jokic got drafted, is stacked. https://t.co/LIn6UKfYsp

Giannis is a terrible GM 💀 Team LeBron is going to destroy them. #NBAAllStar #NBA

Many gave James a lot more credit for the way he put his team together.

Chris Geeter McGee @geeter3

Lebron just better than the Greek Freak at this GM thing at this point ... plain and simple... one day Giannis will dominate a young guy like this

Sudu Upadhyay @SuduUpadhyay

Giannis got wrecked by LeBron in the All-Star Draft!

Aaron Ladd @aaronladd0

Lebron has been an NBA GM for years now so I’m not surprised

Carron J. Phillips @carronJphillips

Giannis is so bad at this. And LeBron is so good at this.

Isaiah Wharton @Isaiah_Wharton

LeBron is going to be one hell of a GM 😂✊🏽 https://t.co/KjeUJXCeJb

Tim Kawakami @timkawakami

If Giannis was the GM building around Giannis, Giannis would demand a trade. /I'm kidding! It's just an All-Star Game! https://t.co/Ymn2bJFi0s

Very generous of Giannis to let LeBron draft better starters for the NBA All-Star game.

Both captains went with what they knew early, staying in their own conference for each of the starters and first bench spots. Each team only has three players from the opposing conference.

After pitting the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference since its inception in 1951, the All-Star Game changed formats in 2018 with two captains selecting their rosters from across the league. LeBron has captained a team in all three years so far, winning in each of his first two chances, including a 178-164 victory over Team Giannis last year.

The Los Angeles Lakers star will try to keep things going with another quality team around him.

Here is a full look at the rosters for each squad:
