Anyone really really bored with all star weekend so far ? Lets see -
Horse - BORING. Kevin Durant made a couple shots but Rondo and Casspi were not making a damn thing, and the shots they did make were regular ass jumpers. The 3 point shootout towards the end was kind of interesting especially because Rondo is shooting 25% but I'm not really sure how winning a 3 point contest makes you a horse winner.
Shooting Stars - I thought this one was actually interesting because of the final round. I liked how Brent Barry represented the clips !
Skills Challenge - Also somewhat interested, I though Brandon Jennings would have won if he hadn't missed that last chest pass multiple times.
Dunk Contest - snoozefest. Gerald Wallace was unenthusiastic and made some dunks everyone in the nba can do in Calabasas(ha). What happened to let Shannon Dunk ? fail. Derozan's one dunk off the side of the backboard was decent. Nate Robinson did the same ol' he's been doing every year. I really despise fan voting - It was obvious that people were rooting for the little guy so that gave him an unfair advantage.Not to mention fan voting went for a whole 5 minutes. If LeBron aint in it next year, It's going to fail so bad they should just cancel it.
Rookie/Soph game - lame. No Eric Gordon (barely). Michael Beasley once again sunk his team into a loss because of his famous ball hogging. He's like that one kid nobody ever wants to play with because he shoots 99% of the time and if he doesn't he'll take his ball home. Westbrook and Mayo were also hogging but at least they made shots, beasley is just ridiculously annoying.
3 point shootout - OK. I thought it was going to be Stephen Curry easily but Pierce surprised me. They need better shooters instead of going for the name players - that's what the all star game is for. Anthony Parker, Steve Novak, Anthony Morrow all should have been there.
Hopefully the All Star game itself will be better, but I doubt it. The crowd was silent at all of the events. What are your thoughts ? All Star weekend any good ?
