Former Los Angeles Lakers star Magic Johnson kicked things off by honoring the late David Stern. Along with celebrating Kobe, Magic spoke about the passing of former National Basketball Association commissioner David Stern, who passed away on January 1, 2020.

"We'll never see another basketball player quite like Kobe", said Johnson, who led an eight-second moment of silence for Bryant - the number the 2008 MVP wore during the early stages of his illustrious career.

Following the performance, rapper Common - fresh off his MVP-winning performance in the NBA All-Star Celebrity game - welcomed everyone to his house. The All-Star Game itself was modified to be a night-long celebration of Kobe and Gianna. The team leading after each quarter will have money donated to a Chicago charity as selected by captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokonunmpo. Team Giannis and Team LeBron will compete to win each of the first three quarters (with each quarter starting at 0-0).

On top of this tribute, the game has been restructured in honor of Kobe.

The 23-year-old guard is averaging 26.4 points, 6.3 assists 4.2 rebounds per game while shooting 49.6 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from beyond the arc. The "Target Score" will not be known until the first three quarters have been completed. Particularly Kobe, because he was with his daughter and those families and those children and those of us who have had the joy and privilege of being parents and taking kids to ball games and then rooting for our children and seeing our dreams and hopes passed on to them. It was recently announced that DJ Khaled, Quavo, and Lil Wayne will join Chance during the show.
