Abhishek in NBA Arena!

News Helpline | February, 14 2015

Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan today became the first Indian to feature in a NBA All Star Celebrity Game but his debut wasn’t memorable as he might have hoped for, as Little League Baseball pitcher Mo’ne Davis helped the West beat East 59-51 at the Madison Square Garden in New York.

Abhishek, goodwill ambassador of the league, did not start for the East and only played in patches, making his first appearance in the second quarter. He tried a three pointer in the third quarter but failed to find the basket.

The Madison Square Garden was lit up with stars from the NBA, WNBA and Hollywood two nights before the NBA All-Star Game to be played on Sunday.

The West team was coached by ESPN personality Mike Golic and American film maker and a die-hard New York Knicks fan Spike Lee of the New York Knicks, while the East side was coached by Carmelo Anthony along with ESPN personality Mike Greenberg.

This was the first time that the celebrity game was played in an NBA arena.
