NBA’s Radical New All-Star Game Format Includes Kobe Bryant Tribute

Ben Simmons has been named an NBA All-Star.

Each of the first three quarters will act as a minigame starting from 0-0, with the victor of each 12-minute period earning $100,000 for their designated community charity in Chicago, the site of the February 16 All-Star Game.

NBA head coaches selected the reserve players for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, which will tip-off at 7 p.m. from the United Center in Chicago on Sunday, Feb. 16.

The fourth quarter has no time limit and will only end when the "target score" is reached by either team.

The new changes include resetting the score at the start of the second and third quarters, and a new "target score" finish, which will honor the late Los Angeles Lakers star. Bryant appeared in the All-Star Game 18 times. The game score will then be reset for the second quarter (though each team's running total score will come into play later on).

The new format will certainly force All-Stars to play defense, especially in the fourth quarter, but given that the All-Star rosters will be loaded with the best scorers in the game, it's possible that we'll see a very quick final quarter.

In each of the quarters, Team Giannis and Team LeBron will compete for money for Chicago-based community organizations of their choosing.

"The community organization selected by the victor of each of the first three quarters will receive $100,000 - a total of $300,000 donated to charity for those three quarters", the National Basketball Association said. The victor of each of the first three quarters will be the team with the higher score at the end of the 12-minute quarter. If one team leads the entire way through, the losing team will still get $100,000 to donate to its charity, anyway. Whichever team wins the game will win an additional $200,000 for its chosen charity.

Meanwhile, the number 24 jersey worn by the late Kobe Bryant will play a role in determining the victor of the All Star game, with further plans to honour the Los Angeles Lakers great still to come.

Simmons will join Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Kris Middleton, Kyle Lowry, Jayson Tatum and Domantas Sabonis as reserves for Team Giannis (Eastern Conference).
