NBA Allstar Weekend

Postby tuff_gong » Sun Feb 17, 2008 4:32 pm

Has anyone been watching any of Allstar Weekend festivities? The NBA Allstar game is the only other allstar game besides MLB's that I actually look forward to watching. A gathering of insane athletes is always fun to watch. I'm also assuming everyone saw Dwight Howard's dunks from last night's dunk contest. I was watching it at a bar with probably 20-30 other people, and when he did the superman dunk, everyone lost it. It got to the point where everyone was just laughing nonstop until they stopped showing the replay.

For those who haven't seen it:

The last two dunk competitions were fun to watch (mainly because of Dwight Howard).
I liked Gerald Green's Birthday Cake Dunk too.

This is going to be a nice Sunday for sports fans with Daytona, the Northern Trust Open, and the NBA Allstar game. ;-D

I usually find that the NBA All-Star weekend is extremely over-hyped, but for the first time in quite a few years, I didn't end up disappointed at the end of it. I love watching Kapono shoot jumpers, and many of the dunks this year were very good. Dwight's Superman dunk was, in particular, hilarious. Hopefully it will be a competitive game tonight near the end, as it's always great to see the best players in the world trying their best to win.

Dwight Howard is the man.
Hopefully he carries the Magic to the playoffs and hopefully the finals.

Howard is an incredible athlete. It's almost not even fair to be that athletic for his size, what a career he is going to have.

I've enjoyed watching the festivities this weekend especially since there's no football to watch anymore. I haven't been all that into college baseketball this year, so this was nice to have as an option.

I kind of wish they played more defense in the game.
