Luka Doncic, Donovan Mitchell and Ben Simmons lead NBA's Rising Stars rosters


This year’s NBA Rising Stars game won’t lack for star power, as the top Rookie of the Year candidates of last season (Ben Simmons, Donovan Mitchell) and this season (Luka Doncic, Trae Young) will headline the game, the NBA announced on Tuesday.

This will be the fifth year of the league’s current U.S. vs. World format, where the top rookies and sophomores make up the 10-player rosters. The World is currently 3-1, most recently winning 155-124 with Bogdan Bogdanovic (who is playing this year) winning MVP honors. However, the U.S. team won’t be lacking for star power this year.

Rosters were chosen by ballots submitted by assistant coaches of all 30 NBA teams.

In addition to the rosters, each team will also boast an NBA star serving as honorary coach. Kyrie Irving will lead the U.S., while the World will have Dirk Nowitzki at the helm.

The NBA also released its uniforms for the games and they didn’t disappoint. The design is inspired by the ABA’s Carolina Cougars team of the 1960s and 1970s, a natural move given that Charlotte is hosting this year’s All-Star festivities.

The game is scheduled to tip off on Feb. 15 at 9 p.m. ET.
