Taylor Hicks - MySpace photoMembers of Taylor Hicks’ Soul Patrol need only look to cable television network ESPN this weekend tonight to catch a glimpse of the season 5 American Idol winner. He’s playing to a sold out audience, only it’s a crowd of basketball fans hoping for a great show. Hicks will be suiting up for the New Orleans team in this year’s NBA McDonald’s All-Star Celebrity Game. Tip off is 6 p.m. local time.

Before you think about hopping a flight or the train to get down there and catch a glimpse, tickets are already sold out. Plus, Hicks was apparently a point guard in high school, so it’s not impossible to think of him dishing it to Master P or WNBA star Ruth Riley.

Taylor did a pretty good job for a rusty white blues singer. He hasn't forgotten to play defense or bring the ball up the court. He also was a great asset in rebounding for his team. The guy is 6"2. They only won by 1 point. Taylor had 3 points, a 2 point jumper and 1 free-throw. He missed 3 free-throws but most of the NBA can't make their free throws. He had excellent passing skills to get the ball to his teammates for some assists. All in all, getting to play with T.O., Deion Sandars, Lee Merriweather, was a pretty good night for a white blues singer from Alabama.
