As you all should know by now, the most important basketball game since you first played NBA Jam is soon approaching. The Red Blue Classic, Miami’s premier exhibition match for DJs with ups, takes place on Tuesday, March 19th. The lineup is stacked and the anticipation has been palpable for weeks, with copious amounts of shit-talking already taking place in the twitter-verse. The Red Team is a fiery side, coached by none other than Seth Troxler, a guy known for being extremely straight-laced and having no fun ever. The Blue team is led by the formidable Matt Brookman of Ovum. It’s time to get serious, so with the help of organizers Chris and Victoria Manik, we’ve compiled a fact sheet on the starting lineup for each side.
