If you’re a basketball fan like me, you’re probably disappointed that the NBA’s labor dispute has dragged on as long as it has. In all likelihood, we’ll have to go without professional basketball this year. But that doesn’t mean that the NBA’s star players aren’t keeping themselves busy. Some are wowing fans at charity basketball games, while others are working out professional contracts overseas. But New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire have a more important visit to make: Sesame Street.

The two NBA All-Stars take on Grover in an effort to compare who’s got the best game. And you know what? Grover’s got hops. Watch for yourself.
