It will be nice to play again with a point
 guard who actually passes me the ball.
On Friday, September 30 Marquis Daniels, Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins, and Nate Robinson will suit up as teammates in the Southern Hospitality Showcase Atlanta 2011, a competitive, fast-paced "pick-up" style game featuring over 20 NBA players.

Along with the current/former Celtics, other NBA players slated to participate include John Wall, Jason Terry, Stephen Jackson, Josh Howard, Al Harrington, JJ Hickson, Josh Selby, and Trey Thompkins. Additional players are expected to be announced.

The event will take place at Morehouse College’s Forbes Arena and is presented by Daniels’ organization, the Q6 Foundation, as well as SLAM Magazine, Victory H2O, C9 by Champion, The V Firm, and The Cube Lounge.
It will be great to see Rondo and Perk back together again. Perk gets to play with his preferred point guard. And as sort of an FU to Danny Ainge, Nate Robinson and Marquis Daniels will also be on their squad. Hopefully Semih joins them as well.

For Marquis this is a big step in his recovery from spinal cord surgery. Also credit to him for putting this together. The game will be streamed online next Friday at www.slamonline.com. For more info read Jessica Camerato's article here.
