I was having lunch in a bar the other day that had NBAtv on, showing past all-star weekend stuff.  I had either forgot, or more likely never realized, that Ray Allen and Kobe Bryant were rookies the same year.  Also, they competed in the same all-star contest that rookie year...

This is what happens when Brooklyn is allowed to have a team.

The need to find a way to back up the truck and get Kobe in the SD contest. It's a win-win. Good for ratings, and maybe he'll get injured.

James White is my favorite KNicks player now, and he can miss every dunk. Great props

So this is pretty much Green's contest to win. The question is what type of foodstuff will be involved in his clinching dunk.

Gerald Green has this. 

 

Seriously though, why isn't LeBron/Westbrook/Jeff Green/D-Wade in this shit?

James White gets 32 points for not making a dunk ... and Kenneth Faried gets a 37 for doing a 360 alley-oop dunk. Okkk.

The more I hear it, the more I think "Mommy's got some things for Daddy to do" is the creepiest thing I've heard in a commercial in years.

I never watch the all star stuff.  There's usually a 3 minute summary on SportsCenter that gives you everything you wanted to know. 

 

Having said that, I watched part of the D-league all star game yesterday afternoon.  I was hoping to get a better look at some young players.  But there was so much showboating and so little defense played that it was impossible to determine if any of those guys could make a meaningful contribution to an NBA team.

How do you advertise an 8:00 start time and start at 8:50? Even the Super Bowl doesn't delay its start this dramatically.

Note to NBA:  starting the All-Star game on a frigid Sunday night at close to 9pm in the East when quite frankly, most people are probably snoozing until a pile of blankets probably is not  a very good marketing strategy.

This entire weekend has pretty much been the definition of bad marketing strategy.

Score 50 for any play in which Wade tears his ACL.
