Kanye West to make special appearance at NBA All Star Game to honour Kobe Bryant

The full line-up of performers at the 2020 NBA All Star Game was announced weeks before the weekend, but it appears there may be at least one special guest performance. Jennifer Hudson was confirmed to have a spot on the stage in a tribute to Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the seven other victims of the tragic helicopter crash last month.

Chicago-native Common is also set to address the crowd inside the United Center before the players are introduced.

But according to Entertainment Tonight, he is set to be joined by a special guest on stage.

It is reported Kanye West will join the 47-year-old, along with the “Closed on Sunday” rapper’s gospel choir.

Tributes to Bryant will be a feature of the NBA All Star Game with a change to the format one key move to honour his legacy.

Instead of the traditional scoring system, the teams will be competing to win each of the first three quarters all of which will start with the score at 0-0 in 12-minute quarters.

Each quarter won will be worth $100,000 to the team’s chosen charity.

But the start of the fourth quarter, the game clock will be turned off and a Final Target Score will be set in a tribute to Kobe Bryant.

The Final Target Score will be determined by taking the leading team’s total cumulative score through three quarters and adding 24 points.
