It's just so outdated. It was cool in it's day because it was new and guys were doing things never done before. Now people have grown up practicing this crap more than shooting, 75% of the league can pretty much do anything. Also it was big name guys doing it. Now you have a bunch of nobodies, props, costumes, etc. Unless someone can do a flip there's nothing we haven't seen before. They need to just bury it.

Actually I haven't watched it or the ASG probably since the 90s. I'm just not into any of the sports ASGs.

Did Lebron give a reason why he won't be in it? Shannon Brown FTW! I think he could jump from the free throw line. Dude has crazy hang time.

Two questions.

1. I remember Lebron stating last year he would definately be a participant this season. Has something happened that will prevent him from honoring that statement.

2. What the heck is a Dunk-in? Somekind of Donut or what?

No during halftime of the Rookie Sophomore game... DeRozen and Gordon will have 1 round of 2 dunks to determine who would be the 4th competitor for the Saturday event.
Man, that's lame!

Where the hell is LeBron?

And I'm tired of seeing Nasty Nate up in this! Damn!
