    Nobody is interested in all-star weekend? ROOK-SOPH game has been entertaining so far but stuck needs to play actively. Waiting for great dunks and nice x-overs also :)

    Yea, Stuckey looks half asleep out there. Maybe Joe D is correct. Stuckey is worn down.

    Stuckey wearing orange shoes and a orange head band looks kind of weird.

    Curtis played fine. I still don't like how he picks up his dribble every now and then. He wasn't looking to shoot, but still scored 12 points. He wasn't jacking like some of the rooks.

    Durant is like something I've never seen in basketball. He's like the perfect storm.

    Stuckey took control of that game.

    Assist leader. Steals leader. 4th in points. 6-7 shooting. And 2nd in +/-.

    Durrant has some versatility, that is for sure. What range.

    I felt like there was a little more defensive effort this year. Maybe I just didn't watch as closely in the last few since we didn't have a representative.

    I missed it, but it will probably be replayed on NBATV 37 times. Good to hear Stuck played well.

    He bore a striking resemblance to Piston fan fav Flip Murray with the headband.

    In case you haven't noticed Flip is having a pretty good season. 10.9 pts, 1 3pt, 2.2 reb, 1.6 ast, & 1 stl per game and the Hawks currently have the #4 seed compared to Detroit's #7.

    this was an awesome game to watch and especially fun because of stuckey, who was clearly the best guard on the floor...and nice to see what he could do with a big who can score around the basket.

    if you didn't see the game, try and find it somewhere...you won't be disappointed. durant is also ridiculous.

    The D League All Star game is about to begin. I see Ronald Dupree is one of the All Stars.
    How is Ronald Dupree in the D League? he has 5 years of NBA expereince. I thought after 3 years of so you no longer could go down to the D league or that there was an age limit?

    I think its your only allowed to be on an NBA roster and play in the D League the first two years of your NBA contract, after that you can play if your not under contract to an NBA team. though would think you could make more money in Europe then the D League.

    Yeah he did look funny with the headband...hopefully he does not decide to wear a headband when he comes home...although he did play well with it on statwise. The long pants made him look heavier too.

    Agree that the game was entertaining. Not only did Durant look good, but so did Jeff Green. They just need some good coaching an a mix of seasoned vets on that Thunder team and they might be good in a couple of seasons.

    Hey Joe! Waive Herrmann and sign Dupree to a 10-day contract.

    I'm desperate :granade:

    Durant just won the horse competition too. Fell behind earlier and then went on a tear from behind the arc.

    Stuckey looks like a T-Rex compared to Kevin Durant.

    The arms... so damn short.
