Giannis makes honorary start
For the first time ever the team captains, LeBron James and Giannis, did a live draft in the minutes leading up to the game and Giannis couldn’t have chosen a better person to pick with his first selection. He took Jayson Tatum, and that move would end up paying dividends for the Milwaukee Buck and his team.
The Greek came into the weekend with a bummed wrist, so he started the game, had the game’s first basket and then was taken out promptly by his All-Star coach Joe Mazzula.
LeBron James and Tatum went bucket for bucket in the first quarter, as the NBA’s All-time leading scorer showed he came to play and he came to win. LeBron had an alley top off the glass to himself, hit a 35 foot three pointer and even had a block in a rare defensive display in an All-Star game.
LeBron injures hand before halftime
Both teams went back and forth in a high scoring first quarter that ended up in a tie, which meant that each team’s charity would split the $100,000 awarded to the winner of each quarter.
LeBron’s former teammate and his second overall pick Kyrie Irving ended the first half as the leading scorer with 18 points but Team Giannis won the second quarter and the first $100,000 prize that went to their charity, Raise the Future. LeBron would not return in the second half after jamming his hand on the rim at the end of the first half.
