GAME THREAD: Watch Dirk Nowitzki coach Luka Doncic in the Rising Stars Challenge!

New, comments

COACH DIRK!

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Team World vs. Team USA

WHAT: The Rising Stars Challenge! All-Star is here!!!!

WHERE: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC

WHEN: 8:00 p.m. CT

HOW: TNT

THE STORY: In case you haven’t heard, Dirk Nowitzki will coach Team World in this year’s Rising Stars game to kick off All-Star Weekend, and oh, look at who the star of Team World is? That’s right, it’s our very own Luka Doncic. So, even if the game isn’t good (Team World should own, see our preview), we’ll still have lots of fun Luka-Dirk moments to watch for.

Team USA will be coached by Kyrie Irving, and that just seems ripe for drama, yet another reason that Team World will dominate.

GO TEAM WORLD.
