    I feel like I remember Splitter being drafted like 6 years ago. Weird he's only a sophmore.

    He was drafted in the 2007 draft so you have a point. However, he only signed to the Spurs on July 2010 so he's still a sophomore

    Lotta guys on Chuck's team that had ties to Indy in some way.... Heyward and Brooks had a lot of fans on here at draft time, and Leonard actually was drafted by us.
    you do know Hayward is FROM indiana, right?

    hmm, both teams look a little unbalanced, but what the hey.

    i think starters will go as the following:

    team shaq: monroe-griffin-fields/walker-rubio-lin

    team chuck: cousins-williams-george-wall-irving (i guess turner could start for one of wall/irving)

    very few swingmen, it's quite surprising. it wasn't long ago when young swingmen seemed to be a dime a dozen, now it's point guards.
    MarShon Brooks will start over Wall Chuck love him. However I love the value of the Wall pick so late he is the perfect pg for this game. He kills it in a summer league type format John Wall Cousins and Paul George were fun to watch at the pro am where Wall dominated it should be fun. But beware Cousins will pull a Shaq and will try to be pg he did it at the pro am and he wasn't half bad.

    Shaq has 6 rookies while Bark only has 4. I'm going with Paul George and Barkley's team.

    I don't see that being as much of a factor that Team Chuck should win as much as:

    1) Reigning rising stars game MVP DeMarcus Cousins is a beast when he's on a good team with a positive frame of mind... I can see him possibly dominating Blake Griffin and Greg Monroe...

    2) John Wall is built for this type of game...

    3) Team Chuck has way better positional balance...

    4) Not sure that Linsanity will be a big factor in a game like this... I won't be shocked if he does though...
