There is no shortage of young talent in the NBA, and that talent will be on full display in the Rising Stars 2022 challenge. Rising Stars will have a new format this year. Instead of the Team World vs. Team USA matchups (and Rookies vs. Sophomores before that), this year’s event will feature three games between four teams in what the league calls a “mini-tournament.” The top two teams will play each other, as will the second two teams, and the winners of those games will play each other to determine the eventual winner.
Twelve rookies and twelve second-year players were selected for the rosters, along with four G League Ignite players. Four NBA legends-Rick Barry, Isiah Thomas, Gary Payton and James Worthy-picked and will coach the teams. If you’re wondering who will make the All-Star rosters in the near future, look no further than this event.
Below you’ll find the information to watch the event, along with the full rosters.
