NBA Rookie-Sophomore Game 2012 Time, TV Schedule And More

NBA All-Star weekend tips off Friday night with festivities including the NBA Rookie-Sophomore Game, now known as the Rising Stars Challenge.

The Rising Stars Challenge tips off at 9 p.m. on TNT shortly following the conclusion of the Celebrity Game (which, sorry teenybopper ladies and mature men who just want to watch phenomenal basketball, does not include Justin Bieber this year).

Headlined by stars like Ricky Rubio, Blake Griffin, Kyrie Irving and sophomore surprise Jeremy Lin, the Rising Stars game normally features plenty of alley oops and less defense than a criminal who pleas guilty.
