Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk will be teammates on Rising Stars challenge

So this is a thing.

Apparently the Rising Stars challenge is no longer just the rookies vs. the sophomores anymore.  (I had no idea)  Now they pick teams with captains and both Sully and Kelly were picked by Chris Webber to be on his team.

Both Olynyk and Sullinger were chosen to be part of Team (Chris) Webber at the event that was previously rookies vs. sophomores. The Boston duo will be joined by Anthony Davis (New Orleans), Mason Plumlee (Brooklyn), Tim Hardaway Jr. (New York), Steven Adams (Oklahoma City), Victor Oladipo (Orlando), Michael Carter-Williams (Philadelphia), and Trey Burke (Utah).

So that should be a "fun" game of pickup where the guards score a lot, the athletic bigs dunk a lot, and Sully and Kelly get a few buckets here and there just because there's no defense.  Enjoy!
