2012 NBA Rising Stars Challenge Rosters, Drafted by Shaq & Barkley

I told you folks a week about the brilliant changes the NBA made to the Rookie Challenge, which is now the Rising Stars Challenge. The teams were drafted this evening by TNT/NBA TV analysts Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal and so let's take a look at the teams.

Team Shaq (1st pick)
Blake Griffin
Jeremy Lin (added by honorary commissioner Kenny Smith)
Ricky Rubio
Greg Monroe
Markieff Morris
Kemba Walker
Landry Fields
Norris Cole (added by honorary commissioner Kenny Smith)
Brandon Knight
Tristan Thompson

Team Chuck
Kyrie Irving
DeMarcus Cousins
Derrick Williams
Paul George
Marshon Brooks
John Wall
Tiago Splitter
Evan Turner
Gordon Heyward
Kawhi Leonard

The Twitter poll is overwhelming in Shaq's favor but I personally like Team Chuck, his club is more balanced.

The Rising Stars Challenge will be on February 24th at 9 p.m. at Amway Center in Orlando on TNT.
