The 69th NBA All-Star Game presents the most dramatic overhaul in the event’s history.
In the matchup of Team LeBron vs. Team Giannis, the score will be reset to 0-0, following the first and second quarter, with the winner of each period — and the third quarter — donating $100,000 to the Chicago-based charity of the captain’s choice.
Prior to an untimed fourth quarter, the total scores from the three quarters will be combined. Then, a target score will be set by adding 24 points — a tribute to Kobe Bryant — to the score of the team with the lead, and play will carry on until that number is reached. The winning team will donate an additional $200,000 to charity.
