The All-Star weekend will see the Rising Stars game being played between Team World and Team USA on Friday.
Team World will be looking to make a statement in this game as a lot of eyes will see all these young up and comers go up against each other. Recently, the trend has shifted where it said that the best basketball players only come from the USA. Many of the recent first overall picks of the draft also went to players coming from different areas of the world. Given how globalised this sport is becoming, Team World is here to showcase their abilities and prove that the tide is turning in their favour.
On the other hand, Team USA will have other ideas regarding the same. They have been Gold Medals and tournaments for a while, and it is clear that they do have the best players in the world. LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Curry are some of the recent players from the crop who have been regarded as a generational talent. This team of youngsters will be hungry to prove that the USA is the mecca of basketball.
