in the All Star game:

    Equality and justice for all ????️‍???? We have to fight this together as one, President Biden tells governors of pandemic response By Nick Whalen, RotoWire Special to Yahoo Sports Earlier this week, the NBA announced the full rosters for the 2021 All-Star Game set to be played in Atlanta on Sunday, March 7. LeBron James and Kevin Durant will captain their respective conference’s teams. With the break fast approaching, it’s time to announce our own All-Star rosters — with a fantasy twist, of course. Like the real All-Star Game, these rosters are, in many ways, completely arbitrary. But using the lens of fantasy stats and rankings as a guide, it’s a bit easier to parse through which players belong and which don’t quite make the cut. Overall, more consideration was given to total value rankings (as opposed to per-game), but per-game rankings were also utilized to help standardize for...

    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Jayson Tatum is an All-Star again, while Jaylen Brown has earned the honor for the first time in his career. Congratulations to them both for providing the dullest of bright spots on an otherwise dim Celtics season. READ MORE: Life Threatening Injuries After Several People Hit On High Street In Boston Now please, please, please, please skip out on this year’s All-Star festivities. Pretty please? Make no mistake, both of Boston’s stars are worthy additions of this year’s All-Star fun, and it should mean something that the Celtics’ young duo has earned the honors together. It’s a good thing that Tatum and Brown can showcase their abilities on one of the NBA’s biggest (fake) stages. At least that would be the case in a “normal” season. But nothing is normal about this season, and really, there probably shouldn’t be an actual All-Star...

    Entire school board resigns over comments bashing parents Trump schedules address before CPAC next Sunday Luka Doncic was named a starter for the All-Star Game next month, something that left many fans both surprised and even angry that he got the nod over Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard. Doncic, shockingly, is also one of those people. “I didn’t expect that I was going to start this game,” Doncic said Saturday, via ESPN’s Tim MacMahon. “I know that maybe [Damian] Lillard deserved it more than me.” Trail Blazers not happy about Lillard snub Lillard, of course, is in the midst of a tremendous season. The Trail Blazers star is averaging 29.8 points and 7.7 assists — both almost career-highs — so far this season, and has kept Portland in contention despite significant injuries to both C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic. The now six-time All-Star, though, didn’t make the cut...

    Julius Randle. Kathy Willens/AP Images Julius Randle is having an All-Star-caliber season for the surprising New York Knicks. Randle's first season with the Knicks after signing a 3-year, $63 million contract was disappointing as he was inefficient and turnover-prone. Randle has boosted his scoring to career-highs this year and has become a key playmaker for the Knicks. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. New York Knicks forward Julius Randle is turning in perhaps the most unlikely All-Star-worthy season of the 2020-21 NBA campaign. The 26-year-old Randle is averaging a career-high 23 points (25th in the NBA) on 47% shooting, to go with career-highs of 40% shooting from three, 11 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game. He's one of just four players this season, averaging over 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists per game, joining Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Domantas Sabonis. Few saw such a season...

    Michael Jordan is inarguably the GOAT of basketball. In his 15-year career, he broke multiple records and was one of the fiercest leaders in the NBA. MJ’s popularity skyrocketed last year with the release of his 10-episode documentary series, ‘The Last Dance.’ In the eighth episode of the series, one of the best defensive point guards in the NBA, Gary Payton, claimed that the outcome of the 1996 Finals could have been different had he guarded Jordan from the start of the series. Jordan later shrugged off ‘The Glove’, saying he did not have any problems in dealing with Payton’s defensive efforts against him. This surely raised some debates about how dismissive MJ was.

Since then, the pandemic has shown no signs of abating in the United States, and the league has had to come up with a Plan B for the season. The plan that the league and its players’ union agreed on was a 60-game season, to be played without fans, but at stadiums all across the country rather than confined to a geographical area. What’s more, the league has enacted a variety of safety protocols that include, among other things, batters being required to carry their own gear to and from the dugout...
