The Rising Stars challenge approaches, and if you were looking for a prediction then you have come to the right place. Will be going with TEAM WEBBER in this one, and expecting power forward Anthony Davis to score at least 24 points. The combination of him Harrison Barnes should prove to be a bit too much in this one.

TEAM HILL will do their best and Damian Lillard will try to keep them in the game, but he will ultimately be fatigued after going in all five All Star events and they will not have enough left to get a win.

The whole weekend should be a blast, and honestly will be DVRing the whole event. It would be nice to be in New Orleans right now, but the cold weather of Chicago will have to suffice for now. Quite happy that analysts Jalen Rose and writer Bill Simmons are coaching and analyst Jackson Pollack Plank believes that the team “that follows their coaches’ direction the best is going to win the game” and have to agree with him here.

In any case, it should be fun to see what happens between both sides and my bet is that the more veteran squad will prevail. Thanks as always for reading, and keep an eye out for a couple more b-ball pieces coming tonight if you are so lucky.
