    I wonder if Drummond will skip the Rookie game due to his aching back.

    Knight might become the first guy to stumble the entire course chasing the ball.

    That's the weakest Skills Challange field I've seen. I think the participants was CP3, D-Rose, D-Will, Rondo, Parker and Nash the last time I watched it. The Dunk competition also looks really star crammed, not a single guy anyone who's not a hardcore fan heard of. There should be a rule that only players in the all-star game can participate in these contests.

    I like the fact that the skills/three point/dunk contest are only for the hardcore fan. Tough luck for the casual internet critic. ;)

    Nice. Larry Brown loved him some Sura.

    Anybody remember Bobby's backcourt mate at Florida State? THAT was a fun college team to watch.

    I think the dunk contest line up actually looks good for one. It should be a good one, and no more of that 4 person rubbish.

    They could as well brought in a couple of D-leaguers and spiced it up with a few guys from a slam dunk show.

    Wow, I didn't know Knight was in the skills challenge. But he's quick and shoots well so I wouldn't be too surprised to see him post a decent time.

    BK7 getting ready to ball in the Rising Stars Challenge. Shaq says he was disappointed to lose Drummond. He said Dre was one of the best young big guys in the league.

    Shaq's teams on a 2 game losing streak. :lol: Brandon's going to hear it when he gets back, and we'll be playing Cleveland again pretty soon.

    The Pistons finally had a guy who wouldn't have had to play the awkward wingman role and he's hurt!

    I'm sensing doom for Brandon Knight in the skills challenge. I'm imagining the round foam thing that holds the balls (or is that in American Gladiators?) being involved in some sort of collision.

    Good showing by BK his first go round. I forgot that he brings his game up a notch when he's going against inanimate objects.
