Tyreke, Jimmer & More To Take Part In Allen Iverson's Superstar Challenge

When Allen Iverson isn’t on a basketball court, chances are, he’s most likely drinking and/or gambling. So, of course it makes sense that the former MVP set-up a two-day exhibition tournament in Sin City that features many of the game’s top young players.

The ‘Las Vegas Superstar Challenge’ (creative, huh?) tournament is comprised of four teams, which are as follows:

Team A.I.Allen Iverson, Amare Stoudemire, Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Zach Randolph, Jamal Crawford, Rudy Gay, Larry Hughes, Paul Pierce, and Steven Jackson

Team HarringtonAl Harrington, C.J. Watson, Stephen Jackson, Monta Ellis, Matt Barnes, Dahntay Jones, David Lee, James Harden

Team PhillyHakim Warrick, Tyreke Evans, Kyle Lowry, Jason Thompson, Wayne Ellis, Ronald Murray and Marcus Morris

Team Rookies – Derrick Williams, Kenneth Faried, Jordan Hamilton, Iman Shumpert, Darius Morris, Klay Thompson, Jimmer Ferdette, Kyrie Irving and Reggie Jackson

Three Kings are scheduled to take part in the festivities (rosters are not complete yet so we may see another King or two added later).

As for the format? It’ll resemble a typical Final Four style with games at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Nov. 12, the winners meeting for the championship at 3 p.m. Nov. 13. The winning team receives $100,000 and the games will be played under normal NBA rules, with better than NBA collegiate referees.

All of the games will be broadcasted on iLinkSports.com, IF, you want to pay $4.99.
