VP Kamala Harris and Michael B Jordan “special conversation” to air on TNT

Before the 2021 NBA All-Star Game

Tonight, TNT’s 2021 NBA All-Star Game coverage will open with a “special conversation” between Vice President Kamala Harris and award-winning actor Michael B Jordan at 8 PM EST. The two discuss how the VP’s time at Howard University shaped her career, her love of basketball and the need to remain vigilant to stop the spread of COVID-19 and promote the vaccine’s efficacy.

As previously announced, the NBA and National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) are committing more than $3 million in initial support of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and support and awareness around equity and access to COVID-19 care, relief and vaccines through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), UNCF (United Negro College Fund), National Association for Equal Opportunity (NAFEO) and Direct Relief’s Fund for Health Equity. Throughout All-Star, HBCU-inspired elements will be incorporated on broadcast and in-arena, including music, content and storytelling.

TNT’s NBA All-Star coverage will begin at 5 PM EST with TNT NBA Tip-Off presented by CarMax, followed by the Taco Bell® Skills Challenge and MTN DEW® 3-Point Contest starting at 6:30 PM EST. Coverage of the 70th NBA All-Star Game will begin at 8 PM EST, with AT&T Slam Dunk taking place at halftime. The game will follow the same format as last year, with the teams competing to win each quarter and playing to a Final Target Score during the untimed fourth quarter.
