I think I can honestly say that I’ve never watched more than 4 minutes of the Rising Star Challenge. No interest. Oh, you’re putting together a group of rookies and second-year players that aren’t good enough to play in the all-start game? Cool, let me find something else to watch.
Anyway, Andre Drummond was named MVP of the 2014 Rising Stars Challenge after a 30 point, 25 rebound performance.
As the little guy was presenting the trophy, the crystal star toppled to the court but surprisingly didn’t break.
I guess we learned that the trophy is not expensive but rather a sturdy piece of plastic.
