Kobe Bryant might think Smush Parker is a horrible teammate but his Big Apple Basketball teammates are going to love him if he helps them become half a million dollar richer by winning The Basketball Tournament (TBT) this month. His team is one of the 32 teams, many with ex NBA players, that will be competing in Philadelphia for a $500k grand prize.
Another former NBA player in the tournament is Josh Selby. Selby was drafted by the Grizzlies in 2011 and was co-MVP with Damian Lillard in the 2012 NBA Summer League.
Selby has been a favorite of ours for a long time and we hope to see him back on a NBA team next season.
One of the favored teams in the tournament right now is Team Barstool and their impressive roster including Dahntay Jones, Josh Boone, Matt Walsh, Andre Barrett, Quincy Douby, and Shavlik Randolph.
Another notable name in the touranment is YouTube legend and 2013 Ballislife All-American Aquille Carr.
