What: 69th NBA All-Star game
When: Sunday, Feb. 16 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET
Where: United Center, Chicago
Team Giannis will take on Team LeBron in the 69th annual All-Star game featuring a new twist. The All-Star teams will compete to win each of the first three quarters, all of which will start with the score of 0-0 and will be 12 minutes long. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the game clock will be turned off and a Final Target Score will be set.
The Final Target Score will be determined by taking the leading team’s total cumulative score through three quarters and adding 24 points – the 24 representing Bryant’s jersey number for the final 10 seasons of his NBA career. The teams will then play an untimed fourth quarter and the first team to reach the Final Target Score will win the NBA All-Star Game.
Obviously, we set our rosters for a reason, but we’d be remiss not to mention the following players who all have various gripes with their omissions:
- Malcolm Brogdon, Indiana Pacers
- Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics
- Spencer Dinwiddie, Brooklyn Nets
- Andre Drummond, Detroit Pistons
- Rudy Gobert, Utah Jazz
- Devonte’ Graham, Charlotte Hornets
- Zach LaVine, Chicago Bulls
- Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors
- CJ McCollum, Portland Trail Blazers
- Russell Westbrook, Houston Rockets
- Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves
- Lou Williams, Los Angeles Clippers
Some of these players were closer than others—Brown and Westbrook might’ve been the toughest exclusions—but all have the numbers to warrant consideration. We granted them as much, but we ultimately went with the following 24.
