Former high school basketball star Austin Jackson drafts an all-MLB pickup team

The NBA All-Star Game is this Sunday and the score will probably be 235-214 or something like that. Now, there are certainly more than a few MLB players out there who think they have the on-court chops to hack it in the NBA, but one who actually could have made it to the league is new Giants outfielder Austin Jackson.

Jackson chose baseball over basketball after high school, but he had a scholarship to play hoops at Division I Georgia Tech. We thought it would be fun to chat with Jackson about which other Major Leaguers have some basketball skills, so we sat down with him and drafted our own 3-on-3 pickup basketball teams.

Take a look at the video at the top of the post to see who Austin picked.
