Campazzo, to the 'Rising Stars' with Zion, Herro, JA Morant ...

The Argentine point guard has been selected by NBA assistant coaches as one of the most prominent new talents in the competition.


Next Sunday, March 7, the NBA will host its 70th edition of the All Star. After intense negotiations between the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), it will be practically in its usual format: there will be a game of the stars, dunk, triples and skills contest. Unlike previous seasons, however, the contest will take place in a single day (not a whole weekend) and, in addition, it will not have one of its usual shows: the Rising Stars Challenge, a match which, in the format of the United States against the rest of the world, brings together the new talents who have reached the best league in the world.

It will not be played, but there has been an appointment of all those players who, if they had been done, would have been part of the game. By way of recognition, as it was intended to do, at the beginning, with the All Star players. In this way, and after the official announcement of the organization led by Adam Silver, the hypothetical teams have been as follows:

United States: Zion Williamson (New Orleans Pelicans), JA Morant (Memphis Grizzlies), LaMelo Ball (Charlotte Hornets), Anthony Edwards (Minnesota Timberwolves), Tyrese Haliburton (Sacramento Kings), Tyler Herro (Miami Heat), De'Andre Hunter (Alanta Hawks), Keldon Johnson (San Antonio Spurs), Michael Porter Jr. (Denver Nuggets) and James Wiseman (Golden State Warriors) .

Rest of the world: Precious Achiuwa (Miami Heat); Alexander-Walker (New Orleans Pelicans); Deni Avdija and Rui Hachimura (Washington Wizards), RJ Barrett (New York Knicks), Facundo Campazzo (Denver Nuggets), Brandon Clarke (Memphis Grizzlies), Luguentz Dort and Théo Maledon (Oklahoma City Thunder) and Mychal Mulder (Golden State Warriors) .

In total, twenty players, ten per conference, who are, at most, in their second season in the best league in the world. Among them, Facundo Campazzo, who has been awarded, in this way, his growing trend in this debut course. Zion Williamson, also All Star, along with his littermate JA Morant or Tyler Herro and Michael Porter Jr., great hatches from last season, lead an American team that also has the main rookies of the year (LaMelo Ball, Anthony Edwards ...). In the rest of the world team, meanwhile, six different countries are represented (Nigeria, Canada, Israel, Japan, Argentina and France).
