ROOKIE VS SOPH GAME
nice jay work gallinari...but you just became a poster with the left hand
Yea Casspi gave him work.
Beasley and Tyreke Evans have been good. Brandon Jennings has made some good passes as expected and some bad ones.
Yeah, Casspi got him good, thats the 2nd time Casspi dunked on Gallo this week, lol (they played tuesday)
I dont know if Jennings is trying to win or just be flashy, but hes failing at both
i'm thinking blair is gonna have a monster game. He seems to be one of the guys taking it a little more seriously.
jenning failing at what?
i know one thing, these rookies are balling
I have noticed that this could be the first time ever, or in a very long time that the rookie team does not have the 1st or 2nd pick on the roster. Alos, that dunk by DeJuan Blair wooooooooooooooowwwwwwww
DID YOU SEE THOSE 2 LAYUPS WOW.
DID YOU SEE THOSE 2 LAYUPS WOW.
lol, Blair is taking it the least seriously...nice dunk, but i dont know about that 3 lol
Rookies with the upset? Its looking likely...Evans is amazing
The last time the Rookie team did not have the #1 and #2 picks on the roster was teh 2002 game, neither Kwame Brown or Tyson Chandler were on the rookie roster.
eruic gordan shouldnt be in the dunk contest
Dunk Contest = LAME
I'd rather watch the skills challenge.
I like how DeRozan put in ZERO effort, and is still gonna win, lol
I thought EJ did alright besides the misses... DeRozan wasn't all that impressive to me considering the hype he gets... At least EJ tried to be entertaining.
derozan's second dunk was not impressive, But he should still win plus he can bring more to the table tomorrow
derozan said the other day he has a michael jackson tribute in mind for tommorrow with a Thriller dunk
of course you will like eg cuz hes from youre state so thats understandable. but his dunks havnt made anyone double take. nor has derzon although i have a feeling he's saving his dunks for the dunk contest
He better do something entertaining because he's not the athlete that Shannon Brown and Gerald Wallace are.
I haven't seen Shannon get as creative during games, but I think he's going to do something crazy. I'm actually excited to see what he's going to do.
Derozan was saving himself for tomorrow. Gordon should've been in the 3 point contest.
There aren't too many dunks that make people double take nowadays because 90% of them have already been done. Majority of people expected DeRozan to win, but EJ did better than people thought he would. Somebody on here said he couldn't windmill... 60 to 40 isn't that huge of a margin.
the jennings evans back court is looking nice
his dunks werent impressive..neither were really but gordan is definatly not a dunk contest guy
Gerald Wallace's earings effect the color on anyone else's TV?
Eric Gordon can't dunk. He is too short, and his vertical is like 25 inches. I've never seen him dunk and he will be exposed when this dunk-off or whatever happens.
Lol... Yea I was thinking the same thing about Wallace's earrings.
I don't think Gordon is a dunk contest guy either, but I think it was coo he accepted the invite and went out there. People in Naptown were excited even though they knew DeRozan was the better dunker.
yeah me and my boys are sitting here in agreement about him not being a dunk contest guy and that he shouldnt have been in it. now we are argueing about the rookie game
man jennings and evans have given work to eric gordan mayo abnd westbrook although westbrook has gone back at them. he seems to be the only guard with killer instincet. the rest seem passive
i know its an all star game but tyreke evans is a monster. he has become one of my favorite under the rim players with brandon roy(I know these guys can dunk very well but when i say under the rim i mean they usually dont drive and throw it down ala lebron). both are amazing to watch handle the rock and just play basketball.
yeah him and jennings have been killing
evans so far 21pts 5stl 5ast 4reb
jennings 20 6ast 4st 4reb
Blair for MVP!
Westbrook has 34
I put 350 on Evans winning MVP, westbrook def is the best player against "allstar defense." Hopefully rookies win, Evans has a shot at MVP but Curry and Blair do to. They are playing very balanced. Harden and Jennings have been strong.
As I'm typing this Westbrook is looking ridiculous...
Brandon Jennings was built to play in these kind of games...He's explosive and flashy, so he always looks unbelievable in All-Star settings
yea westbrook is a monster. i didnt know he was 8th in ast in the nba. thats what you want out of your pg. ability to score play d and pass. and this is only his second year as a soph
im waiting for the people who said this is one of the weakest drafts ever during the summer to apologize
It takes longer than half of a season to judge a draft class lol. They look good though.
Blair for MVP. You still think Hansbrough is better Quincey?
go back and look...said tyler is playing better at that point which he was...thank you....now back to the game...DANEBOY is the only one who got it right. and yeah its only half a season but this class is clearly not one of the worst in nba history. jennings evans curry blake( even though he hasnt played) all can possible make one all star game one day
WOW. dont get me wrong evans played well but blair was clearly then mvp...23 reb!!!! and only 3-4 points less that evans and 4 ast
Tyreke Evans= Class Act to share it with DeJuan Blair.
On a side note...I love Flynn....Dude loves to win as much as anyone, he has soo much fun....Plus, he is really really really good.
I agree with Iggy on Jennings, well said man.
DAMN, Russ Westbrook muct have had a side bet with KD about the points record, he wasnt passing the ball for shat
wow i called it. Blair had a monster game.
yeah you did call it with blair...many watching the game i had visions of evans and jennings in the same back court
Yupp, much credit to you perez22, you called it in like the 1st 5 minutes of the game, good call
Good call LP... He should've been the MVP... All everybody talked about was the soph's size advantage... He obliterated them lol. The dunk off the backboard was nice too.
I'd take a curry/evans backcourt over evans/jennings
thats cool. ill still take jennings and evans and im sure some would take flynn and evans.. all different peoples preference
I'd take a Curry/Evans backcourt too. Curry can play off the ball better than Jennings/Flynn and he'd space the floor for Evans to drive. They'd be a perfect backcourt.
DeJuan Blair is a Monster!!!
It's a shame to see the 2008 Draft Class who's supposed to be one of the elite class fall over the 2009 Draft Class... Good win for the Rooks... I think Tyreke and DeJuan were hungrier than the rest of the 2008 Draft Class....
