All-Star Weekend: Rising Stars Challenge open thread

USA TODAY Sports

See Andre Drummond in street clothes and Brandon Knight barely play.

Andre Drummond was poised to dominate the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. He was on a team with both Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard. So many lobs and dunks.

Unfortunately, he got injured. But fellow Piston Brandon Knight is suiting up for tonight's game. So there's that.

Also, I learned the following things from the Celebrity game:

  • Arne Duncan is slow but he looked like the only one who plays basketball regularly
  • Ne-Yo stinks at everything
  • Josh Hutcherson was the token white guy whose job it was to camp out on the perimeter and shoot 3-pointers
  • Ryen Rusillo is distractingly bald
