I predict Kegboy is the only person who will even care about what I'm about to point out.

In the Shooting Stars Challenge Kelly Miller is playing on the Phoenix team. I know none of you care, but hello she's never played one second for the Phoenix Mercury. She played for the Fever last year and got traded a couple weeks ago. :pissed:

As for who wins what I don't care. If I watch anything (and that's a big if) it will be the Shooting Challenge.

Slam Dunk: Nate Robinson

3-Point Shootout: Dirk Nowitzki

Skills Challenge: who cares...

Shooting Stars Challenge: ditto

Pick team winner & MVP, Rookie/Sophmore Game: sophmores, Dwight Howard (a high scoring guard is also a good pick, seeing as how 0 defense is played)

Pick team winner & MVP, All-Star Game: West, Nash (if the west runs away with it and Nash gets 30 assists) or Kobe (if it's close and Kobe decides to take over and ignore his teammates)

I want to suggest another category --- "First Player to get into some kind legal trouble during the all-star break".

Obviously Sebastian Telfair would be a candidate since he was packing on the Blazers' current road trip. But since he "jumped the gun" on the all-star break festivities I'm confident that some other player will become involved in some type of incident.

"I Love This Game!!!".

Who gives a :censored: what she looks like. She could have a freakin' horn growing out of her forehead for all I care as long as she hits the game winning shot (which she did at the game Kegboy and I went to last year).

I predict I'll watch as much of it tomorrow as I did tonight, which is none. I might watch the game since it is on ABC and our regular fare will be interrupted.
