All Star General Managers: Shaq and Charles

Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley will be the General Managers for the alter NBA Rookie Sophomores game held on All Star Weekend.

The GMs will conduct a draft of the players (9 per side) from the pool chosen for the altered format. Previously the game was Rookies versus Sophomores. How do you like this twist?

Chuck has stated he'd like to be a GM one day and Shaq, well Shaq knows a talent a little bit would you not think.

The NBA is not afraid to try something. So why not have the guys that analyze the game have a run with the players who are "Rising Stars"?

This could be interesting and fun to see play out. No GM of the Year awards will be won however altough there's no telling what side bet is on the line.

The Pool of players were released eariler to day...

Sophomores: DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento Kings), Landry Fields (New York Knicks), Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers), Gordon Hayward (Utah Jazz), Greg Monroe (Detroit Pistons), Tiago Splitter (San Antonio Spurs), Evan Turner (Philadelphia 76ers) Paul George (Indiana Pacers), and John Wall (Washington Wizards).

Freshmen: Kyrie Irving (Cleveland Cavaliers), Ricky Rubio (Minnesota Timberwolves), Brandon Knight (Detroit Pistons), Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio Spurs), Markieff Morris (Phoenix Suns), Marshon Brooks (New Jersey Nets), Tristan Thompson (Cleveland Cavaliers), Kemba Walker (Charlotte Bobcats) and Derrick Williams (Minnesota Timberwolves).
