2022 NBA Rising Stars rosters: LaMelo Ball, Cade Cunningham, Anthony Edwards headline new four-team format

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The selections for the roster were divided into three categories: rookies, sophomores and, for the first time, players from the G League Ignite. In a change from previous years in which the traditional game would sometimes devolve into a series of one-on-one challenges or an informal dunk contest, this year’s game will feature four teams competing in a mini-tournament.

Below are the four seven-player teams for the evening’s competition, coached by members of the NBA 75 team Rick Barry, Isiah Thomas, Gary Payton and James Worthy, followed by a breakdown of the new format.

Instead of Team World vs. Team USA, this year’s Rising Stars will feature three games between the four teams in what the league is referring to as a “Mini-tournament.”

The first two teams will play against each other, as will the second two teams, and the winners of those game will play against each other to determine the ultimate victor.
