Photo by Danny Wild The Jordan Brand Classic always draws A-list celebrities and performers. Drake did his thing at halftime of the 2013 game.Rosters were announced Thursday for the Jordan Brand Classic, which will be played April 17 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The Jordan Brand game is a prized ticket for the nation's top senior high school basketball players. Past participants include Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant and LeBron James. King James participated in 2003 and still owns the scoring record with 34 points. Current Duke freshman phenom Jahlil Okafor made a run at that mark last spring with 29 points. This year's headliners – and perhaps candidates to challenge LeBron's scoring mark – include National Player of the Year candidates Ben Simmons of Montverde Academy (Fla.), Malik Newman of Callaway (Jackson, Miss.) and Jaylen Brown of Wheeler (Marietta, Ga.).
