    NBA Announces Kobe Bryant Tributes as Part of 2020 All-Star Game Format Changes

    The NBA announced Thursday that it will honor late Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant during NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago next month.

    One of the tributes will be a nod to Bryant's No. 24 jersey. The NBA is using a target score in the untimed fourth quarter of the All-Star Game, which will be 24 points more than the score of the team leading after three quarters.

    That means the team leading after three quarters will win the game if it reaches 24 points or the team trailing after three quarters will win if it reaches the total of the leading team plus an additional 24 points.


    Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, died in a helicopter crash along with seven others Sunday. Kobe was 41 years old.

    In addition to the target score, the NBA is planning to honor Kobe and Gianna in other ways that have yet to be revealed.

    NBA President of League Operations Byron Spruell said: "We spent a lot of time considering the right target number to use for the fourth quarter. Through the events of this week, it became clear to us that the only appropriate number for this season's All-Star game is 24."

    Each quarter of the All-Star Game will be a minigame as well. The team that wins the quarter will earn money for a Chicago charity. In each of the first three quarters, $100,000 will be on the line, while the team that wins the fourth quarter will earn $200,000 for charity.

    The new format is a one-year trial for the All-Star Game in hopes of making it more competitive. With a target score rather than a clock in the fourth quarter, it is guaranteed that a player will have to hit a winning shot in order to secure the victory.

    Spruell noted that if things go well, the target score and charity element could return for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game in Indianapolis.

    The 2020 NBA All-Star Game will be played at the United Center in Chicago on Feb. 16 pitting Team LeBron against Team Giannis.

    Lakers star LeBron James and Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo will draft their teams next week.

    The NBA's All-Stars will be playing this year with Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant on their minds and on their jerseys.

    So, coming soon: No. 24 Giannis Antetokounmpo and No. 2 LeBron James.

    As part of what will be a series of tributes to Bryant and his daughter Gianna, the NBA announced Friday that every player on Team Giannis will wear 24 on his jersey and every player on Team LeBron will wear 2 at this year's All-Star Game.

    "I'm told Kobe did show up to multiple practices over the course of the season ..." NBA Insider @ShamsCharania
    reports on the Lakers-Blazers game in Los Angeles and the bond these Lakers shared with Kobe Bryant.








    Pelinka's on his own, now. Hope he's up to it

    NBA Insider @ShamsCharania reports Carmelo Anthony will not play Friday night against the Lakers in Los Angeles "because of his continued grieving and emotions over the loss of Kobe Bryant on Sunday."

    My boss left school at noon today to get down there. He's got four decent season seats - he could have gotten $2,500 a piece for them on the Internet. But he wants to be there.

    He just Facebooked about 20 minutes ago... He can't even get in there yet, let alone get a sparking squared away. What a mess.

    would have been easy to zoom in on players and celebrity faces
