Maybe they would like to challenge Team LeBron to a volleyball game instead, as Team Giannis isn’t really favored to win the All-Star weekend’s main event. Or maybe they are going to try to incorporate some volleyball plays during the game.
Or maybe they’re just having fun.
Both teams were given a special pick during the All-Star draft. LeBron got Dwyane Wade, while Giannis drafted Dirk Nowitzki.
The All-Star game is expected to be jam-packed with highlights, as it will showcase some of the league’s best players. Although they won’t take the game seriously in the beginning, expect it to be more competitive in the second half.
