Others included the return of Cleveland legend and fan favorite Anderson Varejao, the impressive physical play of Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the electric passing of Harlem Globetrotters player Crissa Jackson and a dunk from the medalist. Olympic gold medal high jumper Gianmarco Tamberi.

NBA 75and Dominique Wilkins and Bill Walton, members of the anniversary team and members of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, served as head coaches for the game.

The game kicked off with the Ruffles Ridge 4-point shooting competition, with Ruffles and the NBA donating $4,000 to support the Thurgood Marshall College Fund for every shot taken behind the line. Varejao delighted Cleveland fans by winning the contest.
