We are now just 3 hours away from the start of the Rising Stars Challenge where John Wall, Demarcus Cousins and Team Chuck will take on Brandon Knight and Team Shaq. With NBACats on both teams, it’s going to be a great night of basketball for NBACats fans everywhere. In preparation for the big game, here are some links to occupy your time while you wait for the festivities to begin…

– The Bleacher Report thinks Demarcus Cousins will win the MVP trophy tonight. I think that’s their smartest prediction yet. Here is the article.

– Over at nba.com, they have a video of Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal discussing their draft strategy for the game tonight. I’ll go ahead and sum it up for you…

Chuck: Our strategies were turreble.

John Wall is unveiling a new shoe for the game tonight and I’ve got an exclusive picture of the new kicks. For some reason the quality of the picture is awful, so if you want to see a better, less exclusive picture of them, use this link.

– Why is John Wall posing in a picture with former Duke Blue Devil Kyrie Irving? Maybe Kyrie asked Wall to mentor him, I don’t know. Here is the picture:

– And finally, here is a great video of John Wall, Rajon Rondo, Demarcus Cousins, Eric Bledsoe and Nazr Mohammed talking about their UK brotherhood and the lockout at last years Pros vs. Dominicans game.

It’s gonna be a great night and I can’t wait. We’ll be back later tonight for a full recap of all the action.
