Ball Hogs

During a basketball game’s halftime, it’s always so painful to watch Joe Schmoe – who has just been plucked from his rafter seat – run around all duck-footed, missing three-pointer after three-pointer in hopes of winning a lifetime supply of Jumbo Jacks.

If we’re going to be subject ourselves to non-professional balling, we’d rather watch famous folks like those scheduled to appear at the Celebrity Shootout. At press time, Ciara, Brody Jenner, Michael Clarke Duncan, Jamie Foxx, and Donald Faison were some of the famous types ready to sweat off their makeup in public.
