    I hope they are legit on the dunk contest. No props, no gimmicks, just straight dunkin'. You can use your teammates, the backboard, the stanchion, but no stickers, cars, lights, or ********.

    Doesn't look like Shooting Stars will have an Indy team. Tamika will be on Team Lopez

    Team Bosh: Chris Bosh, Dominique Wilkins and Swim Cash

    Team Lopez: Brook Lopez, Muggsy Bogus, Tamika Catchings

    Team Harden: James Harden, Sam Cassell, Tina Thompson

    Gerald Green needs to stop sitting on the bench doing nothing. Kent Bazemore this year and Dahntay Jones last year are great examples... they don't just get paid to play with themselves on the bench. They get up and represent their set. Mr. Green has all the potential in the world to be a great clown on the bench. Every successful team nowadays needs at least one goon. We had a bench mob last year. Lance and Dahntay loved cheering our team on. We ain't got a god damn mother ****er who even thinks about being a cheerleader this year. If we had at least one of those guys this year, we'd be the 1 seed. Gerald Green owes us. We're paying him good money. I've seen him after a game winner or two... I know he can be the ideal hype man. Why isn't he? Is he pissed he isn't getting any PT? Who gives a **** big dog? You're getting paid... for multiple years. Man up and represent your squad. Do what you need to do.

    I love watching the teams who have those hype men... Patty Mills in San Antone, Kent Bazey Baze in GSW, Dahntay in Indy last year, etc. We need one. We're Indiana. Remember... in 49 states it's just basketball. This is Indiana. Put me on the bench for $.10 a year and I guarantee we win an extra 3 games. I will personally win us 3 more games with touching the floor. If worse comes to worse, I'll just throw a chair.

    In 30 teams, it is just a front office. In Indiana, it used to be Larry Bird.

    Remember when 94% of you dogged on that guy? Yea, you do. Remember when dgranger17 sucked him off from Day One? Yea, you do. Wait... who's dgranger17? He's a pussy. I just hacked his account. Larry is better than Jordan. True story. Add up the college career, professional career, coaching career, and front office career... Larry can't be touched. Maybe William Russell touches him like a 17 year old touches a 9 year old, but that's about it.

    You can't talk about Jordan's rings, because William has 11. You can't talk about Jordan's points, because he ain't #1 there either. What are we talking about when we talk about Jordan? He ruined the NBA. The officials, the pay, the hype... everything. He ruined it. If anything, he's the worst player in the league history. Speaking of hype, we need Gerald Green to act like a circus clown on our bench.

    Did I mention Michael Jordan is forever linked with the number .106?

    Larry Bird

    PS... I love you Larry

    That is an incredibly stupid format. Who cares about random players thrown together? I liked that there was a logical theme to tie the athletes together, dammit!

    And I second that Tamika, Reggie, PG hope.

    SWIM Cash and Muggsy BOGUS? These are awesome misspellings.

    Get ready for a massive drop in PG's confidence if he won't win the 3-point contest.

    This format seems to fit the player over team theme many hate about the nba. Why do I care who wins? At least when teams were represented it was easier to choose who to root for or against.

    And 3 of those 4 players are totally bland or in Westbrook's case viewed as somewhat of a me-first guy by the populace at large.

    Anywho, I'm still be rooting against Bosh. Because he is a tool.

    The obvious reason for the change is lack of wnba teams in Miami and okc. Got to be able to include the leagues poster child cities some how.

    That's a shame, I kind of liked the team element to it.

    Although, I always thought it was sort of a boring challenge. If they really wanted to include the WNBA players, they could have put them in the Skills challenge and/or three point contest.

    And have them potentially beat the Golden Gods that are NBA players? Absolutely not.

    A little bit different situations but when Fred Jones won it in '04, he came back from the allstar break a different man. Played with much more cofidence and became a valuable contributor off the bench on one of the best Pacer teams in franchise history.

    Does Paul George have a legit chance to win this?? I just saw who he has to compete with. Steph Curry.

    That sucks. Damnit.
    Find me on the internets @mattiecolin

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    Great post. I've noticed our serious lack of bench showmanship as well. I'd send DJ and a first to Golden State for Bazemore, he's flat out one of the best I've ever seen.

    WTH is this? I don't know if it's booze, drugs or sarcasm. We've got an expensive cheerleader in Pendergraph. Hansbrough doesn't even high five when he wasn't personally involved in a play and we're talking about Gerald Green not being a "clown" or a "goon?" .... Like, for real?

    My thoughts on:

    - 3pt contest and PG. I love that he's in it, but I don't think he's a front-runner to win it. However, you never know. I never would've expected Kevin Love to win one of these things, either.

    - Dunk contest. I'm not a fan of James White. He does two things --- dunks between his legs, and sprints from the other side of the court and does a free-throw dunk, or he combines the two. And its' not a pretty thing, like Jordan. Jordan could dunk from the free throw line at half a trot and it was the most graceful, beautiful movement you ever saw... JW is a blur. White has to achieve top speed so the dunk technically is a free throw dunk, but it's because he's flying through the air at about 70 mph... the dunk literally occurs in about .2 seconds. I actually prefer GG's dunking style for the contest.. he gets a lot more ups involved, and power dunks. He reminds me more of 'Nique than anyone in recent memory, which his straight vertical and windmills and power slams. I really hope he's able to beat James White, but JW has the hype factor goin' in.

    I can almost guarantee almost all of JW's dunks will be all-out-sprint free-throw type dunks, and eventually a free-throw dunk between the legs. It's impressive.... but he's been doin' those same dunks for years, and like I said, the ramp-up speed he achieves almost makes it feel like... I dunno... cheating isn't the word.... but it's sort of taking a short cut. To say JW is on the same level athletically as Jordan is a crime.... It would be like comparing a free-throw dunk between Jordan and Jeff Foster --- yes, both could dunk from the free throw line, but Jordan did it much better. Same with James White... it's not as pretty as Jordan.

    Speakin of dunk contests... the more I go back and watch the successful dunks of PG last year, the more appreciation I have for them, especially the Tron dunk. That was honestly a very awesome visual achievement. I honestly feel like he should've won that thing... I feel like what hurt him were the failed attempts.

    Here's an overseas dunk contest between the two... I felt Gerald out-dunked him for most of the dunks and then JW started in with his full-court-sprint free throw dunks and won the contest:



    I honestly felt Gerald should've won it. Feel like White is the farther dunker, and GG is the higher dunker. JW is 30 though, so those legs may not be as spry as in the olden days?
