This Cavs team is what I envisioned last years Cavs team to be. I just got a little ahead of the timeline and overestimated the bench (though I begged JB to play Merrill last year. Niang, Merrill (getting minutes), Strus have been excellent. Wade developing into a true 3/D and Okoro taking and making more has opened up the offense.

Not sure anyone in the East truly scares me, it’s mostly JB and his adjustments in a 7 game series I worry about. And potential Knocks pressure to not fold again.

But I do not envision a world they are not the 2-seed at this point, and think they have a better shot at the 1, than the 3. Fun times.

Needs to be like Westbrook and own that role. I didn’t see game or read recap, but the box score is telling.

Early on this is the worst all-star night I’ve ever seen.

I only got to catch some of the dunk contest. I heard the Steph vs Sabrina shootout was fun. I wonder if that will be expanded on going forward.

The dunk contest could have put me to sleep. McClung’s first dunk was cool. I’m just not impressed with these guys jumping over Shaq or whoever to dunk it. 

I like basketball and football the most with baseball a very distant third, but I like baseball’s all star game more than NBA all star festivities or the Pro Bowl.

Also, could Kenny Smith possibly shut the fuck up? He couldn’t be any less obnoxious throughout the night.

Kenny Smith doing analysis in studio is top notch. Kenny Smith commenting for a game or contest is horrible.

3-pt contest and skills contest are super fun, imo. They should be the headliners, with dunk leading them off the night. You need there to be tension, and the 3-pt shooting gives you that as the crowd knows exactly what is needed from the players.

I’m not buying the skills contest. Players don’t even know what they are doing and aren’t going full go. Dumb props on the court.

IMO all the props all the virtual stuff on the court all the lights….just takes away from the player and what the hell they are doing.

Celebrity Game… B-

Futures Games… B

Skills Competition…. C-

3 Point Competition… B+

Steph/Sabrina…. A-

Dunk Contest… C

The dunk contest 🤦🏻‍♂️

Quit dunking over people every dunk. There is no creativity. We’ve basically seen it all. Make a change, do something.

Round 1 Rim at 9 feet and all competitors must dunk from the free throw line a la MJ

Rd 2 Rim at 9’6 and all competitors must do some form of a 360 dunk

Rd 3 Rim at 10 ft and all competitors must do the Kenny Sky Walker dunk

Rd 4 Rim at 10’6 and all competitors must do the Dominique

Rd 5 Rim at 11’0 and everyone must do the Spud Webb

Rd 6 Rim at 11’6…..dunkers choice but no fucking props 

Rd 7 and beyond if needed. Rim keeps raising 6 inches until dunker can’t dunk anymore.

Every competitor gets 2 attempts each round….you fail the round and you are out.

I didn’t watch any of it, but skills competition should be teams of 2 or 3 and it should involve full court dribbling, passing, and shooting.

It was terrible….players going the wrong way, losing the dribble, going 80%
