Ugly Day

Imagine the personal ad said “brunette, huge boobs, totally into leather and MMA”.  Sounds OK so far.  So you think “what the hell… I’ll give this a chance.”

Now imagine walking into that.

That was my level of disappointment with All Star Saturday.  The H-O-R-S-E game had no energy and very little creativity.  It really just became a 3 point contest with a couple of half-court distance shots mixed in.  It was very L-A-M-E.

The 3-point shootout featured a bunch of guys whose names were not synonymous with 3 point shooting and Jason Kapono.  No big names.  The best of the best weren’t involved.  What made Larry Bird raising his hand before the money ball went in move was awesome mostly because it was Larry Bird who did it.

And the only memorable moment in the dunk contest was Dwight Howard bringing in the 12 foot rim… and he even made that look too easy.  I’ll bet he could have windmilled that.  Nothing wowed me.  Even the good dunks took 4 or 5 attempts.

Very disappointing day.

  1. I love this night in NBA Allstar weekend, but for the first time in a long time I just shut it off. The dunk contest was actually pissing me off. The judges were all on D-Howards tip because of all his hype. They were handing out 50s for crappy dunks. Old dunk contests put these hyped-out ones to shame.

  2. what do you expect, it’s phoenix lol. the team of letdowns.

  3. I’m with you. Everything is just so corporatee now. Songs and introductions before everything, everything is associated w/a company name Sprite Slam Dunk, Haier Shooting Stars..blah, blah, blah. The dunk contest was a letdown. I agree only highlight was the 12 foot rim, but as others said, he made that look easy. Lebron hopefully will bring back some excitement. I’m dying to see someone toss it off the shot-clock…Maybe next year in Dallas.

  4. Sorry..meant corporate..not corporatee…

  5. is that Chris Berman in drag?
