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.)
