2012 Rising Stars Challenge: Team Chuck Roster Features Kyrie Irving, DeMarcus Cousins

The annual BBVA Rising Stars Challenge is an exhibition game during NBA All-Star Weekend that features young stars in the making. You can find the full roster of Charles Barkley's team right here.

The 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend has descended upon Orlando. One of the items on the docket for the weekend is the annual BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, which will take place 9 p.m. ET Feb. 24 at the Amway Center. The exhibition game prior to the main exhibition game is meant to showcase "up-and-coming" young NBA players.

The two teams in this year's event are helmed by a pair of former NBA superstars and current real-world eccentrics. Team Chuck, coached by Charles Barkley, will square off against Team Shaq, led by Shaquille O'Neal. The two coaches held a draft Feb. 16 to pick teams, and Barkley's team shapes up like this:

Team Chuck

Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers
DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings
Derrick Williams, Minnesota Timberwolves
Paul George, Indiana Pacers
MarShon Brooks, New Jersey Nets
John Wall, Washington Wizards
Tiago Splitter, San Antonio Spurs
Evan Turner, Philadelphia 76ers
Gordon Hayward, Utah Jazz
Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio Spurs

You can watch the game by tuning to TNT.
