The development of young players in the NBA has been meteoric during the past few seasons. Even though they are still in their early 20s (or even teenagers), players like Luka Doncic, Zion Williamson, Trae Young, Anthony Edwards, Tyrese Haliburton, and Ja Morant have already established themselves as All-Stars and, in certain cases, as the leaders of title contenders.
Friday night’s Jordan Rising Stars game kicks off All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City by showcasing the league’s promising young talent. Since the fourth quarter often turned into an unplanned dunk contest, the structure has changed over the years, and this year there will be four teams led by well-known retired NBA players in an effort to increase competitiveness. The teams will compete in a mini-tournament with a final target score that features the thrilling Elam Ending. You can check out all details we have covered about Rising Star Game 2023:
