The Rosters For NBA All Star Weekend's Best Event Have Been Announced

Wednesday, February 13, 2008


No it's not the lineups for the ASG, 3-Point Contest or the Slam Dunk contest. You already know those. It's not even the Rookie-Sophomore game. Yes everyone the rosters have been released for the single most entertaining feature of NBA's All-Star Weekend. The Celebrity Game!

NEW ORLEANS TEAM
Ne-Yo (2008 Grammy for Best Contemp. Album)
Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights)
Taylor Hicks (2006 American Idol Winner)
Seth Gilliam (The Wire)
James Lafferty (One Tree Hill)
Master P (Hip-hop Artist)
Ruth Riley (WNBA All-Star, San Antonio Silver Stars)
AJ Calloway (Extra)
Coach: Gabrielle Union, (Starship Dave)
General Manager: Stephen A. Smith (ESPN)

HORNETS TEAM
Chris Tucker (Rush Hour 3)
Common (2008 Grammy for Best Rap Perf. By a Duo or Group)
James Kyson Lee (Heroes)
Josh Peck (Drake and Josh)
Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris)
Deion Sanders (Two-Time Super Bowl Champion)
Swin Cash (WNBA All-Star, Detroit Shock)
Tony Potts (Access Hollywood)
Coach: Alyssa Milano, (Wisegal, Touch clothing)
General Manager: Bill Walton (NBA Legend and ESPN Analyst)
A couple of questions. Is Alyssa Milano allowed to participate in every single Sport's All-Star game and what is Wisegal? Where's Reggie Bush this year? Is it fair to have Nathan Scott on a team? He played for Duke (if you get that one, +1). Bill Walton versus Stephen A. Smith?

Yep, this should be fun.

Matt Saracen and Sgt. Carver on the same team??? I wish the other team had Riggins and McNulty.

Shouldn't Lucas Scott play for the other team to make it even?

Is Carrot wearing lipstick?

That dude is gayer than a child born of a union between Boy George, Elton John and Adam Ant. But hey, he is a big weightlifter...

I caught SAS over the weekend, his voice reminds me of the sounds around a beehive, like it's this buzzing...

His voice sounds like bees.

Wow, looks like this game will suck. Sad thing is, I'll probably still watch because I have nothing better to do.

I was thinking the same GMoney.

Lucas may be to busy having an annulment, though.

Terry Crews!

He is possible the greatest actor in American cinema.

Nathan Scott's crippled though. If this was a wheelchair game he'd be money.

Ando dishing to Swin Cash... Interesting.

See, this is what other All-Star Games are missing: TREMENDOUS TRAIN WRECK POTENTIAL!

Why is Alyssa Milano at every all star game? Duh because she's slept with every one of them.

Guess the $20 million Chris Tucker got for RH3 doesn't make this event a little bit beneath him.

Feb 13, 2008, 2:33:00 PM  

I don't see Nathan Scott listed there.

James Lafferty = Nathan Scott

Shouldn't Simmons have been the GM instead of Screamin' A?

Nathan Scott didn't play for Duke he went to a D2 school after he got busted for shaving points and possibly killing Rick Fox.

Hornet's team is going to kick butt. If anybody's interested in going to the game I found a really good site for tickets.It's a comparison site so you can see what everyone is selling there tickets at to make sure you're not getting ripped off.
