2023 NBA All-Star Weekend is almost here, set for Friday, Feb. 17 through Sunday, Feb. 19.

The first event of All-Star Weekend will be the 2023 Rising Stars Game, where fans will be able to see some of the most talented young rookies, sophomores and G Leaguers on display.

Last year, the Rising Stars Game adopted a new format, playing a single-elimination tournament between four teams drafted by NBA legends.
