Sully and Olynyk will be on the same team for the Rising Stars Challenge
As luck would have it, the Celtics representatives at this year's NBA All-Star Weekend will both be on the same team. Jared Sullinger was drafted as Chris Webber's fifth pick and Kelly Olynyk was added through a draw.
@SteveBHoop Sullinger was actually picked. Olynyk was pulled from a hat.
Doing battle for Chris Webber's aptly named Team Webber, the Celtics rookie and sophomore will go to battle against the similarly appropriately named Grant Hill's Team Hill.
That is a solid looking team. Anthony Davis, Michael Carter-Williams, and Jared Sullinger is a team I would pay to watch right now. Team Hill isn't looking to bad either:
Damien Lillard, Bradley Beal, Andre Drummond, and Harrison Barnes is like an NBA 2k14 team. At this point I am more excited for the Rising Stars Challenge than the All-Star Game itself.
NBA All-Star Weekend kicks off next Friday February 14th with the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at 7PM followed by the Rising Stars Challenge at 9PM. Apologize to your valentine in advance because you have plans. This is appointment television.
