The performance Howard put on was incredible. All of his dunks were great. I liked his first dunk in the final round the best. Where he tapped it off the backboard with his left, caught and slammed with his right, and made it look so simple.

As for tonight, Ray Allen should have won MVP. When he got hot he took the momentum from the West. Lebron put up a monster line but Ray Allen's 3-point shooting in the 4th won the game for them.

I'm guessing the fans had a hand in the MVP voting?
If that's the case, LeBron James will win it every year.

I wish fans weren't allowed to vote for anything anymore. CP3, arguably the 1st half MVP, should have started over AI, especially in his hometown, and Yao Ming is probably going to start in every allstar game until he dies.

Agree. And I don't think Wade had any business being there this season over someone like Calderon.

And Allen should have won MVP - he single handedly stole momentum back from the West. I had a feeling he would have a monster game feeling like he had to prove himself for being selected over guys like...Calderon.

Gerald Green should have gotten a 50 for the cupcake dunk. Howard's a beast, he should have stuck that little nerf hoop to 12' and dunked that and the real ball. That would have been off the chains.

I think Hedo Turkoglu was the guy who got robbed, not Calderon. He has hit tons of game winners for Orlando and his drastically improved all around game is a major reason why they have the third best record. Ray should have been there already over Joe Johnson and Hedo should have replaced Butler.

Lebron's dunk at the end was pretty ferocious.

Yeah Howard had the greatest layup i have ever seen. But that was probably his worst dunk. Howards mid air tap and and behind the back board dunk were amazing, so were Green's cupcake dunk and shoe less dunk.

Among point guards in the NBA, Calderon is ranked:

1st for FG% (.545)
1st for for 2 pt FG% (.570)
1st for 3 pt FG% (.472)
1st in FT% (.923)
1st in Assist/Turnover ratio (5.11)
5th in assists per game
4th in assists per 48 minutes
His FT percentage is second overall for all positions
His FG percentage is 13th in the league, for all positions
He's 15th in PER, ahead of guards like Steve Nash, Dwayne Wade, Baron Davis, and Deron Williams.
His PPR and Assist ratio is also the best in the league: http://www.knickerblogger.net/stats/2008/jh_ALL_AST.htm
And without Jose, Toronto certainly wouldn't be over .500.

There's no doubt in my mind that he should have been an All-Star, and there really shouldn't be much doubt in anybody else's mind either.
