    Good for Memo... he deserves to be there and IMO should be getting the most props as a former Piston whose skills we miss the most other than all the love thrown at Ben and Darko.

    Memo not only has the numbers, he also has hit as many clutch shots this year as anyone in the association. Congrats to Memo!

    Joe Johnson is all-star worthy for sure.

    More so than Vinsanity or Kidd who were underacheivers on the Nets who are only 4 games better than the Hawks who only have one supa star in Johnson.


    Wonder who else will drop out before the actual game on Sunday?

    Sure looks like a lot of stars are backing out for health reasons.

    I don't blame them, but if you back out, you should not be listed as an All-Star. It's kinda a hoax if there are 6 or 7 extra All-Stars due to inury. Undermines the entire process.

    In some ways it makes it more legit though. There are always guys that get voted in based on past years' performance. The next 6 in line are probably more deserving right now.

    Also, those old shoe-ins are the ones most likely to pull out with a pseudo injury.

    I would almost think that they would make far more money just having the regular weekend games, especially in post-football season.

    Guess you have to have an all-star game. Comes with the territory.

    The only event I bother to watch is the 3-pt competition.

    True Hoop: Saturday Morning All-Star Randomness

    Apparently the All Star game in Vegas is not a family affair. So much for David Stern's attempts to profile the league towards middle America.

    Damn. I hope Chauncey brought his earplugs and sleeping mask. I don't want him to get too tired.

    Detroit win the shooting challenge!!!

    Ben Gordon screwed up and disqualified Chicago in the Final.

    Man, oh man was it nice to see Bill Laimbeer taking his classic 3 pointers.

    The dude is so competitive. The other retired players had their woes but Lambs was all game face.

    Good job Detroit!

    Yes, they were booing Detroit because they won. It is not Detroit's fault Ben Gordon can't follow directions and got his team disqualified.:nerd2:
