Last month, the Korean Basketball League pulled off an outstanding Mannequin Challenge in the middle of their All-Star Game. And on Friday night in New Orleans, the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game decided to give the mid-game Mannequin Challenge their best shot.

Watch the celebrity teams bust out the Mannequin Challenge after Lil’ Romeo airballs a three:

Poor Nneka Ogwumike (No. 30) of the Los Angeles Sparks either didn’t get the memo about this or totally forgot she was supposed to freeze. Overall, it wasn’t a bad effort, but not quite as good as the Korean Basketball League’s attempt.

ESPN’s Michelle Beadle certainly wasn’t having it though:

Mark Jones: Oh the Mannequin Challenge.

Beadle: No. Mark, no. Jonesy.

Jones: I’m in the Mannequin Challenge.

Beadle: Okay, I’m going to say something. If they dab next, I’m gonna flip this table over and walk outta here.
