NBA Rookie-Sophomore Game 2013 rosters: Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis lead rookie selections

Greg Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Team Shaq and Team Chuck are up to their old shenanigans again, and it should make for some fun in the marquee event of the first night of All-Star weekend.

The NBA's Rising Stars Challenge will feature some of the NBA's brightest young talent in the headline event of Friday's action during NBA All-Star weekend.

Instead of the traditional Rookies vs. Sophomores format, two NBA legends captained each teams and got the opportunity to select their players.

Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal participated in a live draft on TNT and had their pick among the NBA's rookies and sophomores. Not surprisingly, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers was the first overall selection to Team Shaq. Barkley selected Anthony Davis with the second pick.

The game will tip off on Friday, Feb. 15, at 9 p.m. ET.
