Hip Hop heavy-weight Jay-Z and NBA Super-Star LeBron James teamed up with Sprite for a special event, just hours before the NBA All-Star game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. For the third straight year, Jigga and King James donated to a noteworthy charity, this year benefitting a local Boys & Girls Club gym.
