Big ups to the NBA for making this year’s Rising Stars Challenge actually exciting. Two coaches: Charles Barkley and Shaq, each drafting their respective teams to face off in the game.

-Blake Griffin(Clippers)               -DeMarcus Cousins(Kings)

-Markieff Morris(Suns)               -Paul George(Pacers)

-Ricky Rubio(T-Wolves)               -Kyrie Irving(Cavs)

-Jeremy Lin(Knicks)                    -MarShon Brooks(Nets)

-Kemba Walker(Bobcats)             -John Wall(Wizards)
