Trae Young will be busy throughout NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago and, on Friday night, the star point guard’s journey begins with participation in the 2020 NBA Rising Stars game.

The contest features first- and second-year players, with a squad from the U.S. taking on a team from around the world. If nothing else, fun should be had by all, and it is a rare opportunity to see Young playing alongside players like Zion Williamson and Ja Morant.

Join us throughout the night and be cordial to one another in the comments below.
