The NBA All-Star Game is taking shape. LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn's Kevin Durant will be the playing captains for the March 7 game in Atlanta. The league says the game will generate more than $2.5 million for historically Black colleges and COVID-19 relief. The game has been criticized by some top players, who voiced concerns about having it during a pandemic. The other starters: Golden State's Stephen Curry, Dallas' Luka Doncic, Denver's Nikola Jokic, the Los Angeles Clippers' Kawhi Leonard, Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Washington's Bradley Beal, Philadelphia's Joel Embiid and Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving.
