Friday night kicked off the All-Star Weekend in Houston with the Rising Stars Challenge and the celebrity game. The celebrity game was pretty boring in my opinion, but the Rising Stars Challenge had a few highlights. Check out the alley-oop from Ricky Rubio off the glass to Kenneth Faried.

For what it's worth, they won.
Timberwolves guards Ricky Rubio and Alexey Shved both participated on Charles Barkley's team, Team Chuck, in Friday night's BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. Barkley's crew defeated Shaquille O'Neal's, 163-135, in a high-scoring and completely unrealistic game that eventually devolved into a dunk exhibition.

Tweet Minnesota Timberwolves guard and Spanish-import Ricky Rubio has developed a growing fan-base in the United States with his nifty ball-handling and passing.

Consider that moment, for a second, rather than the spring collapse that obscured...
Glen Taylor and Kevin Love have been in contact about the direction of the Timberwolves.
The 2012-2013 NBA Season is more than half over. Looking at the standings, I really don’t see a whole lot of surprises. I think the Knicks are overachieving and I don’t think I would have predicted the Pacers to be eleven games over .500, but overall it’s not a surprising season.
Today, we’ll shift our focus on the 2012-2013 rookies. Who’s a boom? Who’s a bust? It’s...
After the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, Bradley Beal was all smiles. He sat in the media area with a grin on his face after playing on the biggest stage in his career and it looked like he was finally getting a moment to soak it in.
He had just stepped off the court after grabbing nine points, four assists, two steals and one board. The best stat line of the night for him, however...
