I thought the best play wasn't a dunk. It was when Amare was cutting under the basket and his team mate threw the pass low and behind him. He was able to catch it, bring it up, and still get it into the basket. A great play.
I wouldn't call it bad. I think anyone who went in expecting a "real" NBA game is mistaken. They went expecting what they got. Some nice passes, and nice dunks. With a dash of 3's. And that's really what it was.
The end they just let'm completely go to have fun; the game was out of reach. I enjoyed it. They were having fun.
If it had been close, the opposite would have happened. Defense would have actually picked up. But the Sophs got too much of a lead for that.
I only want to say 3 things in regard to the rookie game last night.
1) Glad the rookies did not win
2) that was the worst display of basketball I have seen in my lieftime. Larry Brown had to be rolling over in his grave mumbling, "play the right way
3) Thank God "Monk" was on last night at 10:00, because I could not take another minute of that game.
I cannot agree more with all three points. I could not believe what I was seeing. I took my son to the haircut joint today and this poor 7-8 year old kid was thumbing through the sports section asking outloud who won the Rookie Challenge. I bit my tounge, but I actually felt bad. That wasn't a game. That was what happens when you have a substitute gym teacher trying to organize a game.
If that is what the league wants, then why keep score...why not just let the rookies and the sophomores have their own dunk contest?
