Team USA vs. Team World, yet again.

NBA: All Star-Rising Stars practice Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Luka Doncic and Team World vs. Team USA

WHAT: The NBA All-Star Rising Stars Challege

WHERE: Chicago, IL

WHEN: 8:00 p.m. CT


THE STORY: Just like last year, it’s Luka Doncic and Team World vs. Trae Young and Team USA as the freshmen and sophomores showcase their stuff on All-Star Friday night. Team USA won the matchup last year, and this year will feature Zion Williamson and Ja Morant, the two likely rookie of the year candidates in what will probably be another victory for Team USA. But maybe Luka can light a fire under Team World for an unexpected win?

It’ll be fun to watch. As my toddler says, “Go Nickel!” (What she calls Luka.)
