2008 McDonalds All-American All-Star game tonight on ESPN!

Yes, the 2007-2008 season is not over yet, but you can already start planning for the 2008-2009 with the McDonalds All-Star Game, previewed at our sister blog, Recruiting Wars.

Another controversial group of two dozens players was selected for this game, and with the NBA Draft out of the question, we only have a couple of uncommitted players, the most notable being Tyreke Evans who seems to be enjoying the spotlight and the attention this generates.

The Grassroots Ballin blog states that Tyreke Evans will announce his decision on April 16, 2008. He is down to four schools, check Grassroots Ballin to find out which four!

The game tips off at 630pm pacific (930pm eastern) on ESPN and ESPN-HD. But there is an NBA game before that, so if the NBA game runs late, it may eat up some of the ...McDonalds ;-)

But that's not the only all-star game of the season! The Jordan Brand Classic, is taking place on April 19 at the storied MSG. This time it will be shown live on ESPN2, no longer hidden in the secret world of ESPNU, a channel no one is able to watch because ESPN and Comcast are too stubborn to reach a reasonable compromise.

Preaching aside, there's also the Nike Hoop Summit, this time moving to Portland, Oregon, after being "glued" to the Calipari-FedEx arena in Memphis, TN. This one will be shown on FSN and Fox College Sports, tipping at 1pm pacifc on April 12, 2008.

And in case you were wondering why we haven't mentioned the Roundball classic, it looks like it has been cancelled or frozen. It looks like there won't be a 44th Roundball Classic this year :-(
