ALL STAR SATURDAY BIG HIT!
Watching All Star Saturday night last night was a blast!
First, in the Shooting Stars contest, the Pistons won by default over the Bulls. The Bulls were unfortunately disqualified because of Ben Gordon shooting too early. This is unfortunate, but Gordon has to know when to take his shot.
Next, I want to talk about the hilarious race between Sir Charles and Dick Bavetta. Charles really lead all the way and showed his great skills. Also, they raised good money for charity after the race.
Jason Kapono stole the show in the three point shootout, and the Heat won not only one but two events with Wade winning the skills challenge. I thought Agent Zero would be right there, but he lost his rhythm after the first round of shooting. The biggest disappointment in this contest was Jason Terry, who scored 10 in the first round and was easily ousted.
In the best contest of the night, Gerald Green took home the crown in the Slam Dunk contest. The judges need to grade more for creativity and watch more replays, because these dunks were better than they were scored. Dwight Howard put a sticker on the back board! Wait, I'm not sure you heard that: DWIGHT HOWARD PUT A STICKER ON THE BACK BOARD! MJ is a great guy and player, but even though you've done every dunk these guys are recreating, you have to score higher.
TIME FOR THE ALL STAR GAME!
