The stars were shining bright on Friday night as celebrities took the Staples Center home court for a East vs. West matchup with star-studded rosters. On the East squad, reigning Celebrity All-Star Game MVP Michael Rapaport took the court with the Nike Zoom Kobe VI as did teammate Common, the actor/musician who calls Chicago home. Other East teammates featured former NBA superstars Scottie Pippen, who wore the Nike Air Pippen II, and Chris Mullin, who flashed his signature buzzcut with the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low. The game was taken by the West squad, led by game MVP Justin Bieber and his adidas Crazy 8. His winning effort was assisted by A.C. Green, Jalen Rose (who wore the Zoom LeBron III), Rob Kardashian (in the league-banned APL), Lil’ Romeo (or just ‘Romeo’ since he’s grown up now), and hip-hop artist Trey Songz in the Zoom Kobe VI. Check out the rest of the Celebrity Game action and let us know if you could take Justin Bieber in a game of H.O.R.S.E.! via ESPN.
