Jordan Brand Classic

The 2008 Jordan Brand All-American game will take place on Saturday evening at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The game will air live on ESPN 2 at 9 P.M. This is always one of the better all-star games each I mean you can’t beat going to watch the top incoming freshmen class play in MSG in New York City. It also doesn’t hurt that the event is put on by Michael Jordan’s shoe & clothing company.

Some of the now NBA superstars who have played in this game include LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Paul, Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant and many other talented NBA and NCAA players have taken part in this event.

This years teams are loaded with many talented players who know how to bring some flash to the game. This should be a very fun and interesting game to watch. Some of these players include Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans, DeMar DeRozan, Kemba Walker and Jrue Holiday with many other outstanding players joining them.

This is a list of the rosters for the National All-American game.
