As the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities kicked off Friday night, Marcus Smart got a chance to participate in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, a game that pits the top NBA rookies and sophomores against each other.

The current format features a USA team and a World team. Former OSU point guard and lottery pick Marcus Smart got the start for the USA squad.

Most important of course was Smart's choice in footwear.

Smart didn't have his most efficient game...

But hey, it's an exhibition game. He did look good in practice though...

In case you were wondering, the USA team won 157-154. Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine was the MVP of the game with 30 points, seven rebounds and four assists.
