NBA changes the format of the Allstar game

    Dhe North American professional basketball league NBA changes the format of the all-star game in honor of the fatal accident Kobe Bryant. The NBA announced this on Thursday evening (local time) before announcing the other participants alongside the already established starters of the Eastern and Western Conference.

    Accordingly, there will be no timekeeping in the final quarter. Instead, the team that has 24 points more on the points account than the leading team after the third quarter wins. For example, if it is 100: 95, the team that has 124 points first wins.

    The 24 has been Bryant’s iconic, long-standing jersey number for the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant was nominated to the All-Star team 18 times and voted the best player of the evening four times. The All Star 2020 game will be played in Chicago on February 16. A total of $ 500,000 is expected to be raised for charity purposes. LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers / West) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks / East) are the captains of the two Allstar teams.

    Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people, were killed in a helicopter crash in Southern California on Sunday. Lakers President Jeanie Buss (58) commemorated the former basketball player in an emotional Instagram message on Thursday. He gave her “inspiration and strength” during a visit together with daughter Gianna after the death of her father, the former Lakers owner Jerry Buss. Bryant changed many lives through basketball.
