Apparently the WNBA is still in business as a few of their players competed in the “Shooting Stars” event.
Is there anything uglier than Leonardo Barbosa’s halfcourt shot?Â It looks like a 6 year old trying to shoot on the big boy hoop.
The Skills competition does not have Chris Paul, Steve Nash, or Deron Williams but its OK because Mo Williams guaranteed a victory.
And i have to say i am super excited for drafting Derick Rose in the late rounds on my fantasy bball team.Â He will be running my team for the foreseeable future.Â I said it before, but i think he looks a bit like Penny Hardaway.Â The reverse dunk to finish off the win was sick.
Now, on to the 3point competition.Â This field does not include Ray Allen, Dirk, or Eddie House but its ok because the self proclaimed “one of the best shooters in the history of the NBA” Jason Kapono is going for his 3rd straight win.
A text from Nate “I think they should have had a televised shootout between Roger Mason and Matt Bonner to get into the 3-point contest”.Â Nate is just upset that he was torched in High School by a ginger.
I was rooting for Roger to win the competition so i could write an article on him and throw in that i put up 20 against him in High School (he scored 30 points and won the game but so what).
This just in, Rashard Lewis’s shot is uglier than Reggie Miller(‘s shot).Â Ok that was mean, but it’s uglier than Mike Bibby’s Tats, that we are sure of.
Thunder Dan Marjele is showered and pimping it in 2nd row.Â The over under on number of cheerleaders he takes home tonight is a cool 5.Â Maybe he will go out to a club with Dwayne Nelly-Farnsworth Wade.
Just got this text from Nate, “The criteria for court side seats is looooow.Â I’ve seen Keeon Dooling, Adonal Foyal and Marc Gasol.” Yeah, that is bad, but not as bad as Daquan Cook winning the 3 point contest. Wow.
At least Daquan was nice enough to show all the kids out there watching that they should stay in school, because the NBA cares.Â I would like to see the admissions process and graduation rates for Ohio State.
Rudy Fernandez throws down a nice 1st dunk after displaying a tribute to Martin Lawrence.
Apparently Sonny Weems got a ticket to the All Star game and even participated in the event helping out JR Smith’s failed dunks.Â Who is Sonny Weems you ask.
Nate Robinson just used Wilson Chandler to step up and dunk.Â How is that difficult? Its easier, hell i could dunk with a step ladder.Â What bet did Chandler lose to be humiliated like that on TV?
There is a fork lift out for the Dunk Contest.Â I think we should have a contest for who can dunk the highest.Â Wouldn’t that be fun? Kind of like super Motorcross or the high jump?Â Just keep raising it up until we have a winner.
We are down to our final 2 – Dwight Howard vs. Nate Robinson.Â Cheryl Miller lets everyone know at home that you can “tex” to the number displayed on the screen.Â I have no idea how one “tex’s”, maybe my iPhone manual will help me out.
I think Dwight Howard should dunk Nate Robinson.Â Like physically pick up Nate and dunk him through the hoop.Â Too bad he did not think of that, as i think it would have locked up the title.
Well, another lack luster night for the NBA all star weekend.Â I agree with my colleague Nate, that they need to do something about making the All Star weekend better.Â They have a great product, but are not displaying them.Â Its like going to an auto show, but all the Lamborguinis, Astin Martins, Ferraris, etc are not on display, instead the mid size sedan and the up and coming mini coop are being shown off by hot models to a confused crowd.
