Ironic much don't ya think
OT: Celebrity All-Star Game and Rising Star Game Open Thread
And gotta say I love. Excited to watch this game and reminisce on old times.
Man I wish they had picked literally anyone else as the coach of that team.
i heard that Ed Martin was going to be his assistant for the game . . .
Too soon ? ? ? ;-)
My dad and I, after my high school team was eliminated from bball playoffs, would go and travel to watch Country Day his junior and senior year. Always rooted for him. Even thought Pistons could win a ring for him.
But c'mon, ever since his well publicized line about couldn't even afford a hamburger as a broke student while his jersey was selling for $50, he deserves these little digs. If you're taking money and even if you think you deserve them, for playing college bball, don't publicly complain of how broke you are.
Cmon now, those are some homer glasses you have on there.
So if I'm reading this correctly, you're saying a guy who went number 1 in the draft had no other avenues to get money than a M booster? You do realize we're talking about the NBA here, where endorsement money is everywhere, right?
Does anyone other than 12 year olds watch that?
If anyone is interested, CBS has the rosters for the Rising Stars game as well as the Skills Challenge here - LINK
Team Webber, where Burke and Hardaway will be, also includes:
Team Hill is as follows:
Pero Antic (injured)
Miles Plumlee (replacement)
Drum first basket of the game.
And mostly all rookies. I like them to win it. Of course gotta love the Michigan love.
Webbers team is stacked.
"And I thought Grant Hill was a bitch too."
I remember when the NBA was actually fun to watch.
So like yesterday?
Oh man trey Burke to Thjr assist. Just like old times.
C-Webb with a "Go Blue"
I like this extension of the Michigan-Duke rivalry.
Did CWebb just say Go Blue?
Seems a little tight out there. THJ is looking good so far.
Drum for MVP
Timmy is lighting it up!
I see you boy!
Snubbed my friend
Leave it to a Plumlee to screw up the mojo
THjr was on fire from three. went at it with waiters one on one for a bit. THjr was the purer shooter but Waiters shook him a few times off the dribble.
If THjr can work on the D the sky is the limit for him...
he was a monster in that game. If he can improve his FT shooting and develop post game, sky is the limit for Dre. He could be one of the best C in the league when all is said and done.
He is an incredible talent. Wish they had a passing PG to get him more easy chances. MCW or Trey would have really helped him. MCW would have been amazing with his ability to see over the defense. Especially in the pick and roll
So cool to see hardaway play like that. Too bad Burke looked a bit nervous with his shot but had some good drives. Just a lot of fun to see these guys doing well.
A few pretty hilarious moments.
In GIF form.
Timmy pretending to untie Drummond's shoes a la JR Smith.
