CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Back in February, when Miller Grove (Lithonia, Ga.) forward Tony Parker learned that he'd be suiting up for the East in the 2012 Jordan Brand Classic at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte (7 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN), he was most excited about the fact that he'd get the chance to meet Michael Jordan.
"I've got to thank him for all these hot shoes he makes that have given me all this game," Parker said with a laugh. "I wonder what Jordans we're gonna hoop in. That's important, you know."
