All-Star Weekend Update
– Rajon Rondo is set to replace Stephen Curry (foot injury) and join John Wall in the Skills Challenge on Saturday. There are now two fellow NBACats in the event. That means two of the six contestants in the Skills Challenge are NBACats. Keep an eye out for Rondo to replace an injured player in another All-Star event.
– John Wall gives his prediction on tonight’s game in this video. It has been well publicized that Wall wants to prove his draft selection for the Rising Stars Challenge was a joke. I bet Wall will have more than 10 assist to Griffin.
– Demarcus Cousins is also in the Rising Stars Challenge tonight. Cousins has been increasingly impressive since Coach Keith Smart joined the team. His points per game are up from 14.1 to 17.4; his rebounds are up from 8.7 to 11.8; field goal percentage is up from 42.7 to 46.1 since Keith Smart took over. Cousins also had this to say about his new head coach:
“It’s been incredible. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve become a better player just from him taking over some things, and I enjoy playing in the system. Everything is great. Everything has been positive.“
