Revisiting the 2005 NBA All-Star Rookies vs. Sophomores Game aka The Greatest Exhibition Game Ever

THE ROOKIE TEAM

ROSTER
  • Luol Deng (Chicago Bulls)
  • Andre Iguodala (Philadelphia 76ers)
  • Josh Smith (Atlanta Hawks)
  • Devin Harris (Dallas Mavericks)
  • Emeka Okafor (Charlotte Bobcats)
  • Ben Gordon (Chicago Bulls)
  • Tony Allen (Boston Celtics)
  • Beno Udrih (San Antonio Spurs)
  • Dwight Howard (Orlando Magic)
  • Al Jefferson (Boston Celtics)

THE SOPHOMORE TEAM

ROSTER
  • Josh Howard (Dallas Mavericks)
  • Carmelo Anthony (Denver Nuggets)
  • Udonis Haslem (Miami Heat)
  • Lebron James (Cleveland Cavaliers)
  • Kyle Korver (Philadelphia 76ers)
  • Chris Bosh (Toronto Raptors)
  • Kirk Hinrich (Chicago Bulls)
  • Luke Ridnour (Seattle SuperSonics)
  • Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat)

Wow. Anyone else wanna travel back in time about 6 years and watch this game play out? Better yet, can we get a rematch of these two teams facing off against one another today?!?! The Sophomore team is basically the Miami Heat plus The Namesake, Carmelo Anthony, and a few others, so it should be pretty easy to make it happen. The Rookie team would clearly have the edge in the front court with Dwight, Al and Emeka, but it would be hard for the guards and wings to keep up with Wade, James, and Anthony. If David Stern is finally done with rigging the draft lottery, he should now put himself to work making my dream a reality.
