The coaches voted Paul into the 2020 All-Star Game as a reserve, TNT announced in its NBA Tip-off show Thursday. In addition, both teams will wear patches on the jersey displaying nine stars, representing those who lost their lives in the crash, including John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah and Payton Chester, Christina Mauser and Ara Zobayan. When the fourth quarter begins, the scores for each team from the first three quarters combined will be redisplayed, and the team that wins the All-Star Game will be the first to reach a target score in the untimed fourth quarter. In the fourth, the game clock will be shut off and the teams will try to hit a target score, which is set at the leading team's total plus 24 points.

At the start of each quarter, the scoreboard will be reset to 0-0, but the cumulative score still will be kept as normal and will be used to determine the target score, so even though it might look different, there really is no change in how the score is being kept.

The other starters from Western Conference teams are Lakers power forward Anthony Davis (seventh selection), Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (fourth), Rockets guard James Harden (eighth) and first-time All-Star guard Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks. "Through the events of this week it became clear to us that the only appropriate number for this season's All-Star game is 24". Bryant appeared in the All-Star Game 18 times.

It will be Team LeBron against Team Giannis.
