Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton has been named an All-Star for the second consecutive season, the National Basketball Association announced today.
Each team will also be playing for charity, and the winners of each of the first three quarters will win donations to a charity of their choosing.
For instance, if the cumulative score of the first three quarters is 100-95, the Final Target Score would be set at 124 points.
The fourth quarter will be untimed, with the victor being the first to reach the target score.
In the 69 NBA All-Star Game, Team Giannis and Team LeBron will compete to win each of the first three quarters, all of which will start with the score of 0-0 and will be 12 minutes long. National Basketball Association players have been finding ways to honor Bryant and his family over the past week, and the league will continue with that through the All-Star Game and beyond.
Trump signs long-awaited North American trade deal
It is a good deal for Robeson County's farmers. "It reinforces what we have", and keeps zero-tariff trade for pork, Boerboom said. The deal puts the United States and North Carolina in a stronger position when negotiating trade agreements.

Kobe Bryant killed in helicopter crash in US
He wore No. 8 and No. 24 as a member of the Lakers, both of which now hang in the rafters at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. After being selected with the 13th overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft, Bryant spent 20 years in the NBA , all with the Lakers.
This year's NBA All-Star Game will mark a changing of the guard of sorts, as - for the first time in a decade - there will be nine players making their first appearance in the league's annual midseason showcase. Just like in the first quarter, whichever team "wins" the second quarter will win $100,00 for charity.
The new format will certainly force All-Stars to play defense, especially in the fourth quarter, but given that the All-Star rosters will be loaded with the best scorers in the game, it's possible that we'll see a very quick final quarter.
Each of the first three quarters will be worth $100,000, and the money will roll over to the next quarter in the event of a tie. This is a tribute to Bryant, who famously wore the No. 24 jersey for the Lakers, along with the No. 8, during his career.
The game will take place on Sunday, Feb. 16 at the United Center in Chicago, airing live at 5 p.m. PT on TNT.
