Rodney Stuckey didn’t play in it, but he, Brandon Roy and some other Seattle area NBA talents helped put on a good show at a charity basketball game at Key Arena over the weekend. From the Seattle Times:
Saturday’s H206 Charity Basketball Classic, which was the first NBA-sanctioned game in Seattle since the Sonics left in 2008, fulfilled most expectations of the game’s organizers.
The attendance was smaller than expected and a handful of local players who were slated to play — Portland’s Brandon Roy, Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey, Boston’s Avery Bradley and Chicago’s Brian Scalabrine — didn’t. However, Roy and Stuckey made an appearance.
Still there were plenty of stars on hand in a game that pitted Seattle-area NBA standouts against various players from the league.
While former Sonics Jack Sikma and Shawn Kemp coached the home team, Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford — the Rainier Beach High product — thrilled fans with an array of dunks, deft dribbling and showboating.
Seattle has quietly blossomed into one of the top talent-producing hotbeds in recent years, with players like Stuckey, Roy, Crawford, Spencer Hawes, Nate Robinson, Jason Terry and others among the area’s NBA players.
