Originally a game made up of rosters that solely featured rookies in 1994, the Rising Stars Challenge has adopted a number of different formats in its 25-year history.

2000 marked the first year in which the game pitted a team of first-year players against a team of sophomores. From 2012-14, rookies and sophomores made up a talent pool that was drafted by Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley in the first two years before Grant Hill and Chris Webber took over the draft in 2014.

Since 2015, the game's format has been Team USA vs. Team World, with each team featuring standout rookies and sophomores from the United States and international regions, respectively.

Here's a look back at the MVPs over the years…
