Both sides were divided into Teams at home and away, the former group all with links to the Carolinas. The NBA used this concept in a similar way in 2016 during the All-Star Game in Toronto, although teams were in the United States against Canada.
The NBA has introduced a new concept this year, each team having a "hero of his hometown".
US Marine retired Jason Weinmann, who used his personal military transport vehicle to save the victims of Hurricane Florence in September, played for the local team.
The Away team introduced James Shaw Jr., who disarmed an armed man in a waffle house in Nashville in 2018.
