Archive for the ‘2011 All-Star Weekend’ Category

The best All-Star weekend, Friday through Sunday, in recent memory has given way to trade talk, grey skies and the general malaise that comes as February turns to March. So why not relive the good times? Here’s a quick recap of the very best that TBJ had to offer this past weekend. We won the weekend’s MVP, so you know it’s good.

That’s the good stuff, but if you’re interested in checking out all of our All-Star Weekend coverage please do so. It’s a really good memory for us.

Skeets, Tas, JD and Matt are all on a well-deserved vacation this week, so there will be no daily show until March 2. We’ll still be posting, just not those videos you love so much. But stick around — it gets lonely when they’re gone.

What’s Matt Barnes’ favorite curse word? Why can’t Dwight Howard tell you what the name of his first pet is? What food gives Ken Jeong from “The Hangover” the squirts? Does Jrue Holiday know where the Swag District is? We set off to find out the answers to these random questions and more at Adidas’ 3-on-3 All-Star tourney.
