Do you think John Wall was trying to make a statement about being the 12th pick? Do you think Kyrie Irving was trying to make a statement about being the #1 pick in the NBA draft. The Rising Stars game was won by Team Chuck in a run and gun game full of dunks and crazy passes but also some impressive long range shooting courtesy of Irving who went 8/8 from behind the arc.
Paul George and Derrick Williams were in this game and will be in tonight’s NBA Dunk contest but it was John Wall and Blake Griffin that put on a dunk exhibition that made us say “what if.”
