    Dammit. I thought this wasn't on till later. My guide had 5-7 Inside, after that a dunk special, and 8:30 everything else which i assumed meant horse. :mad:

    Yeah, same as me. I just found it by accident. But, you know, it's not like it was super-entertaining; just kind of amusing.

    Durant has been my lone shining star from the adv league draft.

    He's helping Westbrook through his rookie season and turning OKC into a franchise with more youthful promise than any other in the league imo. Ranking 25th in team salary with the coming FA pool it's almost scary OKC is also a lottery team.

    That said, I still don't like Clay Bennett.

    Looks like the Pistons won the shooting stars contest again. I thought for sure Phoenix would win after they hit like 4 straight shots.

    No, they actually hit 5 straight. Tough loss for them as they were in the driver's seat.

    Did Reggie actually shout out DEEEEEEEEEEETROIT BASKETBALL? LOL...

    :laugh: Laimbeer always sucks at the half court shot too, I can't remember him ever being the one to hit that one.

    Yeah, that was just bad luck. Whenever Reggie's on I keep thinking someone's gonna remind him of 'the block' at least once. LOL

    After further research...wow. It looks like OKC has 3 2009 1st round picks (1 each from SA & Denver) and 2 2010 1st round picks (1 from Phoenix).

    I think he just ran out of dunks. He should have saved the 12ft rim dunk for last. :doh:

    The 3 point shooting contest was a dud this year also. They need to get more of the star players to participate. Money is not so much the issue. I think they need to make it more about bragging rights. A lot of these guy's have egos and it wll appeal to them. Maybe have 100K donated to their favorite charity in their name for the winner.
