What is Le Bron James' net worth? Breaking down how much Cavs star earns

Clips for the Killers' performance will also be showcased throughout Sunday coverage of the big game.

Pop culture darlings Migos have come a long way from their trap rap beginnings and are very much a part of the wider entertainment landscape despite their narrow niche.

If ever you've seen it before, this Sunday's game is not going to be what you remember. But if you're still feeling a little sour about missing out on the juicy draft action, you at least know who to blame... Only time will tell if this will change the product on the court, now let's get to the teams.

Rex Kalamian, the Toronto Raptors assistant who coached Team World, praised the play of Denver Nuggets Canadian guard Jamal Murray, who had 21 points and seven assists for Team World. It is an unjust system that favors big-time players, like James, Harden, Westbrook and Curry -- big-time markets such as New York, Washington, Boston and the greater Bay Area -- and success of the team in Golden State and Cleveland.

The evening ended with the Team World young guns upstaging America's Rising Stars quite easily, 155-124, at the Staples Centre in front of another full house.

Quavo didn't get through the game without a couple of bumps, though, and he accidentally knocked Rachel DeMita to the floor with an aggressive block.

Similarly, thanks to James' picks, this will be the second straight year to see estranged former teammates Durant and Westbrook wearing the same All-Star uniform.

The Oklahoma City Thunder forward, who was selected to replace Cousins in the All-Star Game, has always been rumored to be a free agent target for the Los Angeles Lakers alongside none other than James.

Another intriguing subplot in the Team LeBron roster: Paul George. The Lakers, after a trade with James' Cavaliers last week, would have enough salary cap space to offer a maximum contract to James and another star if he opts to become a free agent and leave Cleveland this summer.

On the outside this looks like an incredibly innovative and new take on All-Star Weekend -- and it is, and I am all for fresh, innovative takes on the annual narrative.

The top three scorers in the first round advance to the championship round.

West game, teams for this year's event were chosen by two players who were voted into captaincy: LeBron James and Stephen Curry.
