Yeah, the dunk contest wasn't too bad this year. It is something my best friend and I have watched about every year since it started (missing the first few in the 80s). Always been big into dunking I guess
. Chris Andersen's showing was pathetic. They said it took around 30 attempts for him to get 2 dunks down. Josh Smith and Amare really both did well, but I think Smith's dunks just seemed more impressive since he had more "hang" and wasn't quite as tall. I was pulling for Amare to win though, to complete the Phoenix sweep. Overall, a nice All-Star weekend I thought, and fun to watch. The game was good too, with everyone playing well it seemed.
By the way, I don't know if anyone else watched it, but earlier on Saturday TNT had an All-Star "one on one" thing where they interviewed a few of the stars. The KG interview was really good I thought, and to me, it made me respect him even more. This guy just wants to win...bottom line...and I think you can tell his feelings are genuine. Also interviewed Steve Nash, so I got to see two of my favorite players up close and personal
. Good All-Star weekend, now we're ready for the second half and the playoffs, should be interesting. Trading deadline this week as well. I heard over the weekend discussing a "rumored trade possibility" of the Lakers sending Odom to Sacramento for Peja and B-Jax. Probably won't happen, but its always fun to speculate about big trades.
