2010 NBA All Star Weekend Thread (2010 All Star Game starters released))

They need to replace this with a 1-on-1 tournament with all PGs and wings.

1) LeBron James vs. 8) Brandon Roy
4) Dwyane Wade vs. 5) Chris Paul

2) Kobe Bryant vs. 7) Monta Ellis
3) Carmelo Anthony vs. 6) Kevin Durant
After watching this vid


dunks in the nba dunk contest seem lame. The NBA no longer has the best dunkers. its like trying to enjoy nfl europe or mls knowing its second rate quality.

Where the hell is LeBron?

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

You know if LeBron enters, he could do a layup and he'll be given a 50.

It won't be a contest.

The dunk contest is used to promote up and comers, now. Not to showcase the superstars. That's what the all star game is for. I'm all for getting the new young stars a chance to shine. Guys like Lebron need to shut up and let these kids get a chance to make a name for themselves. And enough of Nate Robinson, already.

I was thinking something like that. Or a 2 on 2 tournament would be fun.

i like shannon but i'm worried he doesn't have creativity

I'm sure he has plenty of people to lean on for guidance on creativity. Former Dunk Champ Kobe being one.

This is sorta like my idea for a primetime event in between seasons. Like what they use to do with Tiger and his battle at little big horn or whatever they use to do.

But my idea was a few years ago when Vince Carter and Tmac was relevant.

Wade
James
Tmac
Melo
Kobe
Vince

All going one on one! Maybe some 2's or 3's. Or some Horse or 33. That would have been awesome.

My lineup now would probably include

Wade
James
Melo
Kobe
Durant
No idea who my sixth would be. Maybe Joe Johnson, Pierce,Paul or maybe Roy. Or just keep it to the top 4.
So T-Mac isn't starting, but Iverson is. I think.

Correct.

West

G: Nash
G: Kobe
F: Melo
F: Duncan
C: A'm'a'r'e'

East


G: Iverson
G: Wade
F: LeBron
F: KG
C: D12
KG selection is kinda weak sauce, IMO
And it probably would have been better for Duncan to be a center this year, so Dirk could start, too.
