2020 & # 39; s star-studded game will have a team put together by the leading voice vendor LeBron James against a team chosen by Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. The two teams ended up as an almost direct east-west match-up, with Team LeBron with the talents of Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard and James Harden and Team Giannis with joel Embiid, Pascal Siakam and Trae Young.
After the tragic death ofhis daughter Gianna and seven others last month, there is a new turn in this year's game. Each of the first three 12-minute quarters set the score to 0-0, with the winning side of each quarter receiving $ 100,000 per quarter for the Chicago-based charity of their choice.
The total of the three quarters is then added together, with a final "goal score" then 24 points on top of that total and the first team to reach the goal score that wins the game. So if it is 100-95 for LeBron, Team Giannis are the first to win the game. There is no fixed time for how long this extra period will last.
