    Once a dancer for Michael Jordan’s Bulls, the Common of Chicago took home the Most Valuable Player with the honors of the All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday evening while Team Wilbon defeated Team Stephen A. 62-47 at the Wintrust Arena. .

    The common MVP gained after the point guard actually made 10 points, five assists and five rebounds.

    “I just wanted to represent Chicago. Quentin Richardson, Derrick Rose and all the dancers who come from here. I was wearing Ben Wilson’s number because I wanted to represent our city,” he said.

    The Common grew up playing basketball on Chicago’s South Side. Now, it adds the legacy of the city’s test terrain as a Celebrity Game MVP.

    The rapper was featured in ESPN 30 by 30 “Benji”, which tells the story of his friend and Chicago high school star Ben Wilson and the circumstances that led to Wilson’s untimely death outside Simeon High School in 1984. Wilson’s 25 has become a badge of honor bestowed on Chicago’s elite players ever since.

    Rose wore the number like a Simeon star during her high school days and wore it in NBA since he joined the Bulls in 2016. Common made sure to do the same on Friday.

    The Celebrity Game featured a series of Chicago natives including Chance The Rapper, Taylor Bennett, Hannibal Burress – and of course coach Michael Wilbon, who calls the home area.

    This was a dangerous combination for Smith’s team and the ESPN analyst did everything he could to try to take advantage of an advantage.

    Among the stiffest competitions in the Common for MVP were Quavo and Famous Los, which won the award in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

    Bad Bunny tried to literally steal the prize from the Common after the winner was announced, but gave up once he realized that his teammate had been the rightful recipient.
