    If anyone would like me to slap Posh, let me know, I’ll be there.

    Anyway… I’m rolling with #TeamChocolateDrop!!!

    Can’t believe Drose hasn’t been playing in any of these ‘streetball’ events. His game is perfectly suited for this kinda stuff, I know he’s working out, but why not play the game against other league players…

    DRose says he doesn’t play pick up ball during the summer. He only works on his game. And while it may be exciting to watch him in that setting, it is truly pointless as he doesn’t gain anything from it. He is a competitor and these games aren’t competitive at all. Its just a bunch of one on one iso’s, with very little to no defense.

    Actually, a person i would like to see play in this game is Allen Iverson. he should be using this as a way to get his name out there again.

    Yo E, phantom-elbow him in the nose for me, and watch him collapse like you just took a golf club to his face.
    Then tell him Asik sends his regards…

    Word is Rose is working on his post-up game this summer.
    Gonna try and post up smaller PGs like Gary Payton used to back in the days.
    That should be dope.

    IF D-Rose was invited, he should play. The game is for charity, I would assume he can give up a day of ‘training’ to ean money for a good cause. Not that he, nor anyone else is obligated, just seems like the ‘right’ thing to do. I’m surprised AI and Shaq haven’t been showing up at these types of events.

    D-Rose said he doesn’t play in summer league games. The only one he’s played in was the one in the Philippines. I’m guessing he would play in a charity game if he was invited though. Which begs the question was he invited and if not, why?
    Also, what’s up with the disrespect aimed towards Bosh on here? Just like the dislike for LeBron, that’s a little archaic at this point too.

    chicagorilla: it could be that OR it could be because it’s a nike/brand jordan event. either/or, really.

    Nice. Just please let it have the slightest iota of defense and not let it be like that other video SLAM posted of a charity game–where Beasley and someone else traded 3′s for like an hour.
