All-Star Game likely to again feature target score

While not set in stone, the NBA is likely to use a target score again at the end of next season’s All-Star Game after the experiment was well received this season, Byron Spruell, the NBA’s president of league operations, told ESPN’s Zach Lowe Wednesday.

Giannis’ NBA All-Star Game block on LeBron James had Steph Curry hyped

Here's a sentence I didn't think I would write Sunday: Officiating decisions in the NBA All-Star Game brought out plenty of passion. The NBA's format change, where the winner had to score 24 more points (in honor of Kobe Bryant) in the fourth quarter than the leading score of the third, led to one of the best finishes to an All-Star Game in recent memory. The intensity was perhaps best defined by Giannis Antetokounmpo guarding fellow All-Star captain and namesake LeBron James in isolation.

NBA All-Star Weekend Has Become a Fashion Affair

The NBA All-Star Game has become about way more than just basketball — and brands from luxury to food are tapping into it more than ever.
For one thing, the game is no longer just a game, but has become an entire weekend of events, activations, parties and more. The 2020 All-Star Weekend and 69th annual All-Star game in Chicago begins today and stretches through Sunday, when the actual game will be played.
But for companies and brands connected to the National Basketball Association, the game itself is almost an after thought. It’s all the preliminary activities that matter, allowing them to connect with their customer base through sneakers and other memorabilia.
Several brands are launching products and hosting activations over the weekend — many of which will be available exclusively in the Windy City — or opening pop-ups and taking part in the NBA’s Crossover pop-up shop. They include Diamond Supply Co., which is partnering with the NBA for “Space Jam,” marking the first time the league and the basketball-themed film have come together for an official collaboration.
While sneaker launches are customary for All-Star Weekend, the past 10 years have also seen fashion and style play a bigger role among the players

GUCCI GETS IN THE GAME: With a psychedelic-looking GG basketball, a West Loop pop-up shop and even a Gucci-themed pin showing up on Google Maps, Gucci is all set to kick off the NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago on Friday.
Located at 160 North Morgan Street, the pop-up will feature the Italian fashion house’s rainbow-colored GG Psychedelic Collection, which is debuting in Gucci stores and online this month.

On Saturday at the pop-up, players from the NBA and WNBA will turn out to help celebrate the two Chicago-based recipients of the Gucci North America Changemakers Impact Fund: After School Matters, a nonprofit organization that provides after-school program opportunities to about 19,000 high school teens each year, and Braven, a nonprofit that helps college students transition to their careers by partnering with universities and employers.
The West Loop pop-up is part of the brand’s themed “pin” pop-up stores, and represents the third pin since Gucci launched the concept last November at Denver’s Cherry Creek Shopping Center. NBA All-Star Weekend runs from Feb. 14 to 16, and the Gucci pop-up
