The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced today that Team LeBron has selected After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles as the community-based organization they will play for during the 67th NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 18 (8 p.m. ET) at Staples Center.
The winning team will donate $350,000 and the losing team will donate $150,000 to their selected organization, which will also be highlighted throughout the NBA All-Star Game.
As a part of this thrilling moment for the organization, we’re also getting the rare chance to engage some of our All-Star students in both the game and the #TeamLeBron practice. 15 students will be paired with players to run out on the court to kick off Saturday’s high-profile practice, get an insider’s view by sitting in the stands to watch the practice, and will speak to media. Another ten students will attend Sunday’s All-Star game and engage in an in-game, on-court experience. This opportunity provides a tremendous amount of exposure for the good work we do, as well as a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students to be an integral part of the All-Star weekend.
