MTV Clutch’s The Check-In had a perfect 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend. Our hosts, Eric and Jeff Rosenthal, interviewed everyone from Wale, Jadakiss, Common and Fabolous to Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, Kyrie Irving, LaMarcus Aldridge, Roy Hibbert and Kevin Hart. Guess what, they didn’t stop there. The following video roundup includes short, hilarious interviews with former All-Star Penny Hardaway, Rising Stars Gordon Hayward, Marshon Brooks and Tristan Thompson, Slam Dunk competitor Chase Budinger and even sightings of Kobe Bryant and Jeremy Lin!
Hosts Eric and Jeff Rosenthal chatted with rapper/actor Common, fresh off the first season of “Hell On Wheels.” The Chicago native is a big-time Bulls fan, but while Kanye and Jay-Z talk about balling so hard, Common’s credo is closer to “bald so hard.”
And since he’s a politically active rapper, it was only natural to get his take on why it’s so important to get off your ass and go out there and VOTE, dammit.
With their necks craned, hosts Eric and Jeff Rosenthal got the “dish” on which zone Portland Trailblazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge finds most intimidating (hint: it’s not the 2-3 zone, and might have to do with food if you trust our hint quotes).
