At its best, it's an opportunity to see if a handful of famous people can play without embarrassing themselves. Come to think of it,  it's a contest best viewed with Twitter at hand and a willingness to make jokes.

So it was interesting to see Thirteen-year-old Little League World Series sensation,  Mo'ne Davis, one of the participant and she wasted no time in showing everyone what they wanted to see in the 2015 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the Madison Square Garden.
