Re: NBA 2011/2012 Season

They should just have LeBron and Kobe pick teams. Think about how awesome that would be.

    Not at all. I never said no one could enjoy the game. What I AM saying is that if you think you watched a competition last night, you didn't.

    Here you go...the All Star game is a slight hair above Monday Night Raw. It may be entertaining at times, but it's not a real sport/competition.

    Players picking teams was a suggestion in the article about how boring the all star game is. It'd be interesting, for sure.

    Again, your criticism has nothing to do with the fact that it is a showcase for the best talent in the NBA. It is an exhibition game, but in general the 4th quarter turns out to be pretty competitive.

    I'm also pretty sure the fact that there is a dunk contest has no bearing on their being a lot of dunks in the game.

    And you didn't watch anything at all so......

    I'm just saying that if the AS game was going to be a dunk show, then why have the dunk contest? Seems redundant.

    Come on Roger, even a non-basketball fan like yourself must know the difference between a dunk contest and in game dunking.

    Yeah, you're still not grasping it.

    We're saying the last few minutes was competitive. Which, had you watched, you'd know it was. Not spinning that like the whole game was.
