Who's your favorite for the dunk contest?
What are you watching for?
I wish I could say I was looking forward to it, but the all star weekend is becoming a joke. Just like the pro bowl.
Can't really argue... They turned Blake Griffin's moment into a Kia Commercial. I haven't been thrilled since Vinsanity
Or did you just want the two points? It isn't even the ASG, fergodsakes.
In his defense, the events tonight are a lot more exciting than the game itself.
And North Campus bro-shake... But I don't need defense... Millions of people are watching this even if the MgoHipsters aren't interested
. Just an ardent Ant-NBA Proponent especially when the Wings are playing a game and don't even have their own thread.
I can appreciate an ardent Anti-NBA guy... Nothing wrong with not liking something... but leave the thread for those who do... This is a pretty big yearly event for some of us. Also, this is a University of Michigan blog. A lot of us Michigan alums are not from the Detroit area and couldn't give a fuck less about the Pistons Wings and Lions. (It was bad enough having the Lions games on while I lived in A2) lol
Just because people are giving you the business over creating TWO open threads (just saw that you created the UFC one as well)of little interest, doesn't mean that you have to get all agro to prove you belong in your tap out shirt and tribal tattoo awaiting the main event.
For the record-I'm not the one flamebaiting your post, but thanks for the same courtesy.

If you want a Red Wing thread, what's stopping you from creating one?
Either it's easier to hate...
Or he's liquored up and will apologize tomorrow
What exactly would I be needing to apologize to you or anyone for? That I don't like the NBA or the fact that I find creating 2 simultaneous open threads with one being about a skills competition funny?
Didn't realize we get two points but I was raised in the Jordan vs. Dominique era... can't help but watch the Dunk Contest!
But now the stars are all too cool to do it which is just another reason the NBA is not FANtastic any more.
Not to mention isn't it only one round now?
I was going to post a generic "NBA thread? Nobody cares!" comment, but someobody already beat me to it.
Wow I am getting killed for liking the NBA and UFC lol... sports fan here... I apologize
Bitterness. We haz it sometimez. (By we, I mean other people. I thought it was a post-worthy OP and I hate the NBA).
I mean... I watched the purdue game with everyone else and it sucked... I also know our awesome hockey team is playing... but to pretend like All Star Saturday is a non-event... Hi-haterrrrrs lol
....what did I miss?
Just won the skills challenge over Rondo and my guy Jon Wall
Just came out in the Drazen Petrovich jersey... Very classy RIP
I'd watch paint dry, grass grow, or ice melt before I'd watch anything from the NBA...
Besides, you will see highlights from EVERY part of it on ESPN for the next 2 weeks...your worldwide leader for everything NBA.
The 3-point shootout is the best part of the weekend. I can't believe how good Love was in the first round. Crazy skills for a big guy.
Love is killing it... I would love to see Durant win though!
Very cool dunk by Budinger.
Very artificial how they brought Diddy out though lol... But it was a great dunk!
That was my favorite. But why do the Jazz now wear the old Seattle Supersonic uniforms?
They always had green incorporated as a third color but it seems once SEA left they've felt they have cart blanche on the green and gold
oops, thought this was the drinking thread. now can't figure out to delete. sorry!
The dunk contest is a shell of what it used to be. Completely disorganized, no star players, more emphasis on theatrics than dunks...sigh
The NBA as a whole is fucking losing me with this garbage.
The Heat have SIX representatives all weekend? New York has four? Meanwhile Denver, Milwaukee, New Orleans, and Toronto have none.
You mean to tell me that he entire nation of Canada had nothing to root for while America was gifted with the presence of bench players Norris Cole and James Jones? DeMar DeRozan and Amir Johnson would have put up better dunks than we saw tonight, and Jose Calderon is as good of a candidate as any for the three point contest or skills challenge.
Yeah, it's a freaking joke. 3 point contest is the only thing I watch on All-Star Weekend. Dunk contest is nothing because the best dunkers don't even participate (ie scaredy cat Lebron).
But i've also gotten to the point where I will watch the Pistons and nobody else. Officiating is atrocious and games can be a snoozer except for the last 2 minutes of every quarter. Those are the only times teams play tough defense consistently.
