This might be the first time I’ve ever been excited about the NBA All-Star Celebrity game. It’s going to be cool seeing Mark Cuban playing with the father and son duo of Romeo Miller and Master P; It’s going to be great seeing basketball legend Oscar Schmidt wearing a NBA jersey; It’s going to be cool seeing NBA impersonator Brandon Armstrong pull off a James Harden impersonation while being guarded by WNBA great Candace Parker; It’s going to be cool seeing actor Anthony Mackie redeem himself for the awful “Crossover” movie; But there’s two reasons I’m most excited about the upcoming game:
#1 is our longtime friend and NBA 2kTV host Rachel DeMita will finally get a chance to show she’s just as talented on the basketball court as she is beautiful off of it. Don’t believe me, scroll down to watch her knock down 4 threes and score a game-high 22 points at a celeb game last year.
#2 is two of my favorite players of all-time, Baron Davis and Jason “White Chocolate” Williams, will be facing off against each other like it was the late 90’s or early 00’s.
