A bit on the "okaaaay" side of community outreach, but it would be pretty awesome for the prisoners to play against 'the players they see on TV', though the stars are like 'nobody got time for dat'. The most popular player would be Marreese Speights, with the likes of Luke Walton on the coaching side of things. Surely the inmates all did something bad to land in prison, but this was a nice gesture by the Warriors, who apparently do it every year.

I thought it was just the coaching staff of GSW, mark jackson started this tradition. seems like it would be better to go to highschools or something but who knows
