NBA Looking to Keep New All-Star Format, Implement it in G-League

The 2020 NBA All-Star Game was a huge success and yet another big win for the NBA.

After lacking the much-desired competitive fire in All-Star Games past, the NBA struck gold this season with its new format, suggested originally by All-Star point guard Chris Paul, as a way to honour the late Kobe Bryant.

Starting each quarter with a blank slate, a total score count was kept throughout the night. For the final frame, 24 points were added to the team with the greater point total, after which both All-Star squads played a game of pick-up basketball until the grand point total was reached. The intensity and excitement experienced in the final quarter of play was absolutely exhilarating to the point that the NBA is looking to maintain the new format moving forward.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, NBA’s president of league operation Byron Spruell suggested that it is a “good assumption” we see this same exact format next All-Star Game.

Commissioner Adam Silver is said to be also considering implementing the format in the G League, but concerns about making G League play too different from the NBA game may prevent the rule change. Spruell claimed the league may still attempt the format in the annual G-League Showcase, which usually takes place in December.
