The best part about Friday night’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game was seeing ESPN analyst Jon Barry take a face full of water from a Harlem Globetrotter. The joke was on Barry and it didn’t look like he was laughing when his suit was soaked.
As for the actual celebrity game, there were few REAL celebs in the game with the exception of my man Chris Tucker, Michael Rapapport and Common, who has some game. They should seriously get rid of the Globetrotters for some female celebs. I’d invite Megan Fox and Jessica Alba next year!
Prior to the game, Shaquille O’Neal told ESPN’s Stuart Scott that he would donated $5,000 to charity if Mavericks owner Mark Cuban can make a 3-point shot during the celebrity game. Stu Scott wasn’t about to be upstaged by The Diesel as he matched called Shaq’s $5,000 and raised it to $10,000. Stu Scott must be well paid by the Worldwide Leader. Cuban wasn’t able to come through, and Shaq and Scott were able to keep their wallets intact.
Speaking of Shaq, he said that it was “nice to see Rick Fox and Robert Horry,” two of his former teammates in L.A. But then Shaq said he hadn’t see Fox in 10 years. Memo to Shaq, Fox was your Lakers teammate during the 2004 NBA Finals. Obviously, old age has corrupted The Diesel’s memory bank.
