That was a weird All-Star Weekend, wasn’t it? The best moment was a hilarious steal in the Rising Stars challenge, a legitimate injury was suffered in the main event due to some deep seated beef between two of the game’s best players, and LeBron James was actually criticized for passing on a possibly game-winning shot like it actually mattered. From front to back, it was just strange.
So yeah, it was an odd weekend. And that’s probably why we were able to do so many silly things down there. Here’s the highlights:
- Throughout the weekend, we had people recalling their favorite All-Star memories, running the gamut from Jerry Stackhouse’s terrible timing to Michael Jordan’s last All-Star Game. There’s some really great writing in there if you like reminiscing about the good ol’ days.
- Tas “Dancing Hedo” Melas grooving with Glen “Big Baby” Davis is the best thing ever and I challenge you to disagree.
- The dunk contest was underwhelming — though, upon watching a replay, probably not as bad as it seemed upon first viewing — but Skeets and Tassie still found a way to talk about the five best dunks.
- Inspired by Jeremy Lin, and because asking a Linsanity question was a requirement for entry to Media Day, we found out what teammate’s couch these guys would sleep on.
- We also found out what superpowers they wish they had because their normal superhuman abilities aren’t quite enough.
- And then, because we’re always up for a good pun, we had the All-Stars write their own headlines, just in case they were the story of the weekend.
- Box Out Kid showed up again with the Box Out Posse. Then he had better seats than us at the actual All-Star Game. We can’t escape this dude.
- All that, plus recaps and random things that happened during the weekend can be found in the archives. Definitely worth a few clicks if you want to relive everything, which I’m sure you do.
Jam Session IV drops later this week, so stay tuned for that. The daily show and regular posting returns tomorrow, so make sure to wear yellow and blue as we celebrate February 29 with Leap Day William. See you then.
