NBA Rising Stars Challenge 2013: Game Time, Live Stream, TV Coverage And More

The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge is tonight and it’s going to be Team Shaq taking on Team Chuck to see who knows their young basketball stars best. Last year saw Charles Barkley take the crown as the guru of TNT’s studio analysts but Shaq has a young and fast team this year that might be able to get him yet another title in his career.

For those unfamiliar, the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge is basically B-Team All-Star Game featuring players who were snubbed but are still deemed worthy enough to play in an All-Star game of some sort. Both Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley held a make-shift NBA Draft to create their rosters for the game. There’s really nothing more than pride on the line between Shaq and Barkley but as we’ve seen in the past, this is a great way for the bright young stars of the NBA to shine and let the world know what’s in store in the years to come.
