Playing for a Cause
You can bet it will be one competitive game as teams will play for a charity of their choice. This year, Steph Curry has chosen Brotherhood Crusade and LeBron James has selected After-School All-Stars Los Angeles as their community-based organizations. Regardless of the final score, both organizations will be winners with the winning team donating $350,000 and the losing team donating $150,000.
