Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone will handle Team LeBron in the 2023 NBA All-Star Game.
The Memphis Grizzlies’ Wednesday loss against the Portland Trail Blazers allowed the entire Nuggets coaching staff to secure the appointment of the assignment.
This marks the second time that Malone will do the call for an All-Star team, as he previously led Team LeBron last 2019 All-Star match over Team Giannis.
Under Malone’s guidance, the Nuggets currently boast the best record in the Western Conference, holding a strong 35-16 record with reigning two-time MVP Nikola Jokic.
Boston Celtics interim coach Joe Mazzulla secured earlier this week the coaching keys of Giannis Antetokounmpo-led All-Star squad.
The 2023 NBA All-Star Game in Salt Lake City will take place on Feb. 19.
