    Pretty big "if" there, considering how he looked as a Celtic.

    Man, that Chuck - Shaq game was some boring ass shit.

    The alley-oop loses interest when its tried every time down the floor.

    and celeb game as well.... I lasted about 3 mins with that dreck. I don't care to see Doug Gottlieb jerking himself off up and down the court pretending he can ball.

    Instead of the all star weekend bullshit here is what I think would be much more interesting to watch

    Each team sends 2 stars to compete in a weekend competition:

    3 point shooting
    Super distant shooting (5 ft behind the 3 line)
    Tallest dunk (raise the rim until nobody is left)
    Passing accuracy competition
    1 on 1 - each player takes on another for 10 seconds and has to make a shot, then they switch until 1 misses - winner advances (interesting matchups - great moves)
    Free throw contest
    Dribbling contest
    Dribble steal competition (1 v 1 - for 20 seconds, hold the ball or steal)
    Shot blocking competition


    For each skill competition award each winning team win on their record. So if there are 8 or 10 competitions then there would be 10 wins on offer.

    This way there is something to achieve. Today's format is just stupid bullshit. Did anyone make it to the last 2 mins of the rising stars game? They watched eachother dunk. So stupid.

    :laugh: these dudes calling that last dunk "Glow In The Dark Dunk," lol. How do they not realize it's based on Tron: Legacy? Even had the music from the movie and the glow in the dark pattern on his jersey resembled the Tron suits. Wish he actually wore a Sam Flynn suit or something though, came out in a lightcycle with a glow in the dark ball attached to his back like an Identity Disc, removes it and tosses it at glowing backboard/rim, and Windmill dunks over a bunch of dudes dressed up like Rinzler all while this is playing: [VIDEO][/VIDEO] :slayer:

    I feel awkward watching this dunk contest.

    The crowd is dead, I'm not convinced everyone in the upper bowl didn't just leave earlier in the evening to beat traffic out.

    All-star weekend was so much better in my memories.

    There were some really good dunks tonight. No star power but the guys did show up to compete.
