Brightest Cluster Galaxies (BCGs) are some of the most massive elliptical galaxies in the Universe. The scaling relations of galaxies focusing on star formation are important when it comes to galaxy evolution. We focus on the physical properties that factor into the development of galaxies. We present the relation of the kinematics and the star formation activity of BCGs and compared it with a sample of 2000 galaxies from the MaNGA galaxy survey. We classify these galaxies with respect to their morphology: spiral and elliptical. BCGs show a larger offset from the star-forming main sequence despite having some similar kinematic behaviors with other elliptical galaxies.
