i wonder what it would take to get dallas fans motivated to get at least dirk on the all star starter squad?

overall it looks like a pretty good representation of the best of the best in the league, but as good as the mavs are doing, i would have liked dirk to get voted in.  i think he and amare are probably the 2 best forwards in the west right now, but duncan and KG will pretty much have to die before they stop getting voted in.

Secretly, Neal knows it's Ron Artest in a Heat uniform that's going to rescue Dwyane Wade.

Did anyone else watch that 4th quarter that Wade just dropped on the Cavs?  He actually outscored the Cavs himself in the quarter, 24 - 23.  He set three team records along the way as well:  most turnovers in a game (12 - Ouch!), most points scored in a quarter (24), and most foul shots made in a game (23/24).  And the Heat needed every single one of D's 41 points tonight to pick up the win.

i stopped watching kinda early on since it looked like cle had it under control and it was a low scoring game.  you know the cavs are running a zillion defensive drills today after sending wade to the line so often that more than half his points were from the charity stripe.

They should be.  Though I loved watching Wade dominate the game, I couldn't believe that the Cavs didn't run a second defender at him as soon as he crossed half court with the ball.  I think they did it one time.  The announcers mentioned it.  Barkley said something about it after the game.  I noticed it.  When a superstar player gets going like that, you have to make someone else on the team beat you.  Wade's probably second to only Nash in knowing how to run his team, so he'd definitely have made the right passes out of any double-teams, but still ... I'd take my chances and let Posey, Kopono, and Haslem try to beat me.

I did see that.  Pretty awesome.  Blocked shots like that are just as good (or better) than when someone dunks over someone else.

I didn't see it, but I looked it up.  I think this is what you guys are referring to.  Very impressive.
