All-Star Event Honors Faith and Character

Held annually during the NBA All-Star Weekend, the All-Star Breakfast recognizes role models in the NBA for their outstanding faith, leadership and integrity both on and off the court.

Hosted by international sports ministry Athletes in Action, the All-Star Breakfast features presentations of the Jerry Colangelo Award and Bobby Jones Award, each presented by their namesakes to a current or former basketball executive or player who displays character on the basketball court and in their local community.

Celebrating the great people of the game, sportscaster Ernie Johnson describes the All-Star Breakfast as “an oasis … a perfect place to reflect, recharge and reinforce values that truly matter—faith, character and integrity.”
