G League Next Up Game To Be Played During All-Star Weekend 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 13, 2023 6:35 am

A version of the G League All-Star Game called the G League Next Up Game will be played during All-Star weekend this year.


The game will feature 24 players, with 10 players voted in by the fans.


All players currently on a G League roster and two-way players with a minimum of four games played will be eligible to compete.

That's a great idea. I hope these guys take it more seriously than the other games though.

Votes by the fans? Fans not following G-League like that, it'll be worst then the NBA voting. Watch someone like Gelo Ball get voted in.
