All Star Weekend's Friday night showcase of young talent will be led by a pair of former Cats.  The Sacramento Kings' De'Aaron Fox will play for Team USA, while the Canadian-born L.A. Clippers' point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will share point guard duties with Ben Simmons for Team World. In his rookie season, Gilgeous-Alexander averages 9.9 points, 2.9 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1 steal a game.  Fox is transforming into a superstar in his second season, averaging 17.6 points, 7.2 assists and 3.7 rebounds for the Kings who are currently just 2.5 games out of the playoffs.
