The teams are set for the 2022 NBA Rising Stars game. Chicago Bulls rookie Ayo Dosunmu was drafted by "The Glove" Gary Payton's team.

Dosunmu was one of 12 rookies selected for the game. The NBA is trying out a new format this year to bring a little bit of spice to the Rising Stars game and honestly, it looks pretty cool. Dosunmu getting drafted by Payton's squad is awesome too. "The Glove" was known as a hard-nosed defender who could score and pass at will. It's no wonder he thought Dosunmu would be a great fit on his team.

Ayo Dosunmu has a prime opportunity to showcase what he is capable of on a national scale. Who knows? Maybe he can pick up some pointers from the nine-time All-Star and Hall of Fame guard. He did say he planned to "dissect so many brains" when asked about being part of All-Star Weekend.
