Notable

  • Two players from this year’s Rising Stars game, Trae Young and Luka Doncic, have already been voted in as All-Star Game starters.
  • Zion Williamson gets the nod despite having played in just four regular season contests. He’s technically a replacement player for Wendell Carter Jr.
  • Shail Gilgeous-Alexander and Nickeil Alexander-Walker are cousins from Canada. They’re joined by Brandon Clarke and RJ Barrett, making it a total of four Canadian players on The World squad.
  • The Charlotte Hornets have three representatives in the game (Miles Bridges, DeVonte’ Graham and P.J. Washington). Two of those players are sophomores (Graham and Bridges) that didn’t qualify for the game last year when it was hosted in Charlotte.
