Brooklyn Nets point guard D'Angelo Russell will make his All-Star debut this season after Commissioner Adam Silver named him as an injury replacement for indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo.

A rear-wheel-drive configuration is standard, but 4Matic permanent all-wheel drive is offered as an option. Mercedes-Benz says there's an extra 30Nm of torque available in the V300's acceleration phase, as well.

Drafted second overall in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft out of Ohio State, Russell was traded to the Nets from the Los Angeles Lakers along with Timofey Mozgov for Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma during the 2017 draft, the same day the Lakers drafted another point guard in Lonzo Ball. Russell spent two seasons in L.A. before moving to Brooklyn just before the 2017 NBA Draft. The lefty is averaging 19.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game while shooting 43.8 percent from the field, 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free-throw line. Team captains LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks will pick their squads during the All-Star Player Draft on February 7.

The main event will kick off Sunday, Feb. 17 at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.
