Who said Frank Vogel can't coach offense?
Frank's original plan was to finish with Roy. http://www.nba.com/allstar/live1/
Maybe it was just me, but I didn't absolutely hate the uniforms (well not the easts, hated the wests), they certainly could use some work, but now awful
i can't stop laughing to this. how worse can you butcher a national anthem?
and that pre game musical performance(?).pharrel was brutal.
Am I the only one that like the anthem? Probably helped that I didn't start watching the pre-game until it started and missed what must have been the anathema and bane of all happiness.
PG24: "Don't tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon!"
RT @Hoya2aPacer "When I play this game I love. I play to make my teammates better. But I'm a mouther****er on defense."
thing is PG could have done Wall's dunk. That format was god awful for the dunk contest.
Is all this over so we can get back to the regular season?
I'm pretty sure you could put Paul George, Lebron James and three dudes from a rec league on the court together and play amazing perimeter D. That perimeter D with Lebron on Durant and PG on CP3 late was terrifying.
Also, if you're a Cavs fan this morning and you just saw Kyrie do that, aren't you feeling pretty terrible? I mean the guy has been a steaming pile of "I don't care" for 50 games for you and then he comes out and balls out of control in the all star game. The writing already seems to be on the wall for that player/team relationship.

I must admit I don't like the allstar weekend like I used too.
I enjoyed watching the practices on Saturday - hearing the coaches and discussions. Enjoyed some of NBATV's coverage Friday night, enjoyed Silver's press conference. 3 point shoot out was OK, the dunk contest I thought was a horrible format - but some good dunks. PG, Lilliard and Wall were really good. The game Sunday night I really couldn't watch because the camera angle wasn't wide enough - that is a huge pet peeve of mine. Why is it so hard to show all the players on the court at the same time - in halfcourt situations
I didn't have any problem with Wall winning the dunk contest. His dunk was really good. PG's dunk was really good too - tough call between the two.
and why does everything have to be a rock concert? I know it changed about 10 years ago forever (I realize and accept that) , but just show the events and the game please.
I know for some of you younger folks, it might be hard to believe, but there was a time that there weren't rock concerts between each event and there was a time when they just announced the allstars and they ran out on the court - the whole thing took 5 minutes. I mean serious that is the way it used to be - really it was.

Did anyone notice Roy ingnoring the Heat players or was that just me?
When they showed the old video of Jerry West in the all-star game that was played in LA, I liked how the uniforms resembled the Laker uniforms. I think they should try that in the modern era-- whoever is hosting the game, modify the home team's jerseys slightly so they become all-star jerseys yet clearly still resemble the host city's team. I think that would be cool.
I have to admit, I also thought the uniforms looked pretty cool on TV.
The West uniforms, not so much because of the color scheme. But the East uniforms, while 'different', were actually pretty cool on the court.
I jumped the gun in mocking them. It was a neat experiment

I'm actually glad someone enjoys it. I know I used to enjoy it. But it's extremely boring afaic. So I didn't spend a second watching it on TV, but I spent about 5 minutes watching the highlights on the web. It was barely worth that much time. I did see one of PG's dunks and Wall's winning dunk. Yes, it was a good dunk but I would take the dunk PG24 had in the Clipper's game over it.
Really, once you got to see the Dream Team play and decimate international competition after losing the prior Olympics, there isn't much interesting about watching all-stars play. It's not real competition, which is why I watch the game.
I watched most all of it because I'm too old to be going to the bars and whatnot anymore and it did get fairly boring. But kids absolutely love it, I mean real kids, 12 year olds. That's who it's made for and that's the important thing, keep building new generations of fans.
