The Jordan Brand Classic game happens tonight at 8 PM EDT in Charlotte, North Carolina. Once again, the fabulous four Kentucky recruits will play, and Kyle Wiltjer for the West, Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague for the East. I will be opening up an Open Game Thread for the game if you'd like to talk about it.
Now, for today's news:

I think the answer could wind up being, "Yes."

While the game features four players headed to Kentucky - Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague, Michael Gilchrist and Kyle Wiltjer - the North Carolina-Duke clash has become the focus of the event's 10th anniversary in part by the shift from New York to Time Warner Cable Arena.
This should be exciting.

For the sake of interest. UK and UNC will likely be fighting over the top spot for most of next year.
"We're always just hanging out, kicking it with each other and trying to make each other better," Davis said of his future college teammates.
I really do like how this is working out. I'm sorry, Derby Festival Classic, but the camaraderie these guys are developing in this all-star game swing is very beneficial to UK.

I wish they would both hang out. They can only improve their stock. No way Knight goes in the top 5, in my opinion. He could next year.
