Remember a couple years ago when John Wall was selected 700th in the Rising Stars Challenge draft? I might be off by a few places, but that's what I remember. Anyway, something completely different happened tonight, as Bradley Beal vaulted all the way to third in the draft, behind Anthony Davis and Damian Lillard and ahead of likely 2014 Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams.
The pick was made for Team Grant Hill, with Charles Barkley, a vocal Beal fan, jumping in to make the selection. Here are your Rising Stars rosters, followed by when they were picked.
1. Anthony Davis
4. Michael Carter-Williams
6. Tim Hardaway Jr.

WC. Steven Adams
WC. Kelly Olynyk
2. Damian Lillard
3. Bradley Beal
11. Giannis Antentokounmpo
