NBA All-Star Weekend 2023 wraps tonight with the 72nd NBA All-Star Game. For the first time, viewers will get to see the NBA All-Star Draft take place before the game. Team captains Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James will select their teams, curating who will go head-to-head on the court for the exciting game full of elite players.

This best-of-the-best matchup isn’t just about showcasing skills and bringing together these top athletes to see who can take the All-Star crown. It’s also a charity event. Each team’s goal is to raise awareness and funds for their chosen Utah-based charity organizations. Team Giannis’ charity is Raise the Future while Team LeBron’s is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah. The teams are looking to give nearly $1 million dollars to the charities by the end of the weekend.
