Highlights from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and P.J. Washington’s appearance in the Rising Stars game

The best and brightest young stars in the NBA took center stage Friday night at the United Center for the Rising Stars game.

P.J. Washington scored eight points on 4-of-5 shots, missing his only three-point attempt for Team USA. He also contributed five rebounds and a pair of assists.

Washington took a backseat to his Charlotte teammate, Miles Bridges. The former Michigan State Spartan scored 20 points to earn MVP honors in the 151-131 win for Team USA.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was UK’s second representative in the game. The Canadian native shaked-and-baked for Team World. Filthy.

SGA finished with 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting from the field. He also chipped in three rebounds and three assists. See all of the best moments from his soiree at NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago.

    I tried to watch it but it was a Zion love fest from the get go. Best part about Zion’s dunk that’s on ESPN was Ja Morant’s between the legs lob but they didn’t talk about that as much as Zion’s dunk.

      ZSPN. I was watching a college game the other night; and they ran the Pelicans’ score at the bottom of the screen; it actually said, “Pelicans 12, opponent (whomever) 8…Williamson 4 points. Sheesh.
      I hope he didn’t fart, and they missed it.

      It’s so ridiculous, yes he’s talented but he’ll never be near as good as AD or Kawhi just to name a couple. He can be held scoreless if you keep him 5 feet from the basket.

    Well I have always been told that UNCheats controlled ESPN through some rich alumnus at the top level. May explain the complete ACC bias.
