NBA All-Star weekend is upon us. The best athletes the league has to offer are all in Chicago for this year's festivities. 

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo selected their squads for the 2020 All-Star Game based on the available pool of players and will face off on Sunday night.

The format for this year's game has been altered to make the matchup more competitive as well as honor the late Kobe Bryant.

  • The game score will be reset to 0-0 after the first and second quarters come to an end. 

  • The winner of each of the first three quarters will receive $100,000 per quarter to donate to a Chicago-based charity at the captain's choice. 

  • At the end of the third quarter, the cumulative scores from each quarter will be combined.

  • The fourth quarter will be untimed. A target score will be set by adding 24 points (Bryant's old uniform number) to the total of whichever team has the lead through three quarters. The first team to reach that target will be named the winner.

  • The winning team will receive an additional $200,000 to donate to charity.

The culmination of All-Star Weekend will introduce some of the NBA's best young stars. Luka Doncic, Trae Young, Jayson Tatum, Brandon Ingram, Domantas Sabonis, Devin Booker, Donovan Mitchell, Bam Adebayo, and Rudy Gobert will make their All-Star debuts.
