Rising Stars Challenge Open Thread

As I'm typing this, Brandon Knight and Greg Monroe have been introduced to the aching crowd that was just subjected to Kevin Hart and a bunch of other celebrities playing bad basketball.

Our Pistons will be on Team Shaq with the better players of this game, so it'll be interesting to see how much they can contribute.

Here are the rosters for the game:

Team Shaq

Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers
Jeremy Lin, New York Knicks
Ricky Rubio, Minnesota Timberwolves
Markieff Morris, Phoenix Suns
Kemba Walker, Charlotte Bobcats
Landry Fields, New York Knicks
Norris Cole, Miami Heat
Brandon Knight, Detroit Pistons
Tristan Thompson, Cleveland Cavaliers
Greg Monroe, Detroit Pistons

Team Chuck

Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers
DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings
Derrick Williams, Minnesota Timberwolves
Paul George, Indiana Pacers
MarShon Brooks, New Jersey Nets
John Wall, Washington Wizards
Tiago Splitter, San Antonio Spurs
Evan Turner, Philadelphia 76ers
Gordon Hayward, Utah Jazz
Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio Spurs

The game starts soon and is being shown on TNT.

This is the official thread, so go nuts.
