The best young talent the NBA has to offer will be on full display tonight in The Big Easy for the Rising Stars Challenge.
In case you’re not familiar, the Rising Stars Challenge tips-off the first night of the All-Star festivities and features a mix of the NBA’s top rookies and sophomores competing in a glorified pick-up game. It’s the second of nine total events during All-Star Weekend.
Former All-Star ballers, and current Turner Sports NBA analysts, Grant Hill and Chris Webber are the “general managers” of each team and were in charge of drafting the players.
In preparation for the festivities, the staff here at Soaring Down South went 5-on-5 for the star-studded show.
The Rising Stars Challenge will tip-off at 9 p.m. (ET) and be televised on TNT. Click here for the complete rosters for Team Hill and Team Webber.
