NEW ORLEANS — Don’t say nobody plays defense in the Rising Stars Challenge All-Star weekend… Actually, you can say that all you want. Nobody plays defense in this game. Trust me, I was in the building and my Monday night pickup games (with no guy over 6’4″) have more effort on defense. But Anthony Davis…

During Thursday night’s draft of the teams for All-Star weekend’s Rising Stars Challenge, Charles Barkley had an unexpectedly tough time pronouncing the name of the Raptors’ Jonas Valanciunas.

The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

While the All-Star Game itself is an exhibition for the biggest names in basketball, a sneaky fun part of All-Star Weekend is always the Rising Stars Challenge — watching the games best young players put on a little show. And there are plenty of good young players to showcase this season. Last season’s Rookie of…

After seeing him bulked up at Summer League and looking like a man among boys, after seeing him play well for his native Lithuania over the summer, a lot of people picked Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas to have a breakout season. Not so much. He’s scoring a little more per game but that’s just because he’s…

You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here.
