Congrats to Common, who was the king of the court on Friday night.
The Chicago rapper won the MVP trophy for his performance in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game. Common put up 10 points, five rebounds and five assists. He dedicated the win to hometown fans and athletes. “I just feel good being home in Chicago… I just wanted to represent for cats like Quentin Richardson [who also played]… Derrick Rose and all the ballers who come here — [like] Isiah Thomas.”
Common rocked a number-25 jersey in tribute to Ben Wilson, an ‘80s youth basketball star murdered before graduating high school.
- Common’s already got an Oscar, Golden Globe and several Grammys in his trophy case.
- Not bad for a 47-year-old.
- He did a lot better than Quavo, who went 1-for-10 from the field.
