    To be far, Win Miller looks pretty good.

    But what's up with Baron Davis? Dude suddenly looks like he's never picked up a basketball in his life.

    Andy Bailey @AndrewDBailey

    Literally everyone in this game but Jason Williams looks atrocious at this sport.

    Oscar Schmidt, who is 59 years old, nails his first shot of the game because this man was born to score.

    I'd say rec leagues may even look a bit better than this.

    Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun

    Celebrity game looks like my weekly rec league run. Not so smooth.

    Have you seen the skill level in this game?

    East up 14-10 with 1:10 left in the first quarter.

    Jason Cole @JasonColeBR

    What's going on here? @jemelehill checking her phone and @michaelsmith high-giving fans while coaching the NBA celebrity game?

    Who Are You Most Interested to Watch Tonight?

    Personally, I want to see Brandon Armstrong. Who will he impersonate tonight? Or better yet, how many impersonations will he do?
