Griffin & Kentucky vs. NBA Sophomores Tonight

ukrookies

When we thought it was nothing more than a memory, the trio comes right back into our lives, one last time (until next All-Star weekend.) John Wall, Demarcus Cousins, and Eric Bledsoe will play on the same team tonight in the 2011 T-Mobile Rookie Challenge. The three Draft Cats will be joined by “The Poster Boy” Blake Griffin and five other rookies in a friendly competition against nine sophomores who are favored by 6.5 points. Although the NBA will never admit it, I’ve heard Patrick Patterson was left off the roster so he could attend the South Carolina game tomorrow. The NBA cares.

Rookies Sophomores
Blake Griffin, Clippers
John Wall, Wizards
Demarcus Cousins, Kings
Eric Bledsoe, Clippers
Derrick Favors, Nets
Wesley Johnson, Timberwolves
Landry Fields, Knicks
Greg Monroe, Pistons,
Gary Neal, Spurs
DeJuan Blair, Spurs
Stephen Curry, Warriors
DeMar DeRozan, Raptors
James Harden, Thunder
Taj Gibson, Bulls
Jrue Holiday, 76ers
Serge Ibaka, Thunder
Brandon Jennings, Bucks
Wesley Matthews, Blazers

John Wall and Blake Griffin on the same roster has SportsCenter written all over it. Set your DVR, folks. I don’t think you’re going to want to miss this one.

The game is tonight at 9:00 pm.

    Patterson has had a better season than Favors, unless it’s based on fouls committed
