Yea Casspi gave him

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 have noticed that this

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

The last time the Rookie

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.

Dunk Contest = LAME

I thought EJ did alright

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.

He better do something

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

Derozan was saving himself for tomorrow. Gordon should've been in the 3 point contest.

There aren't too many dunks

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.

Eric Gordon

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

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.

i know its an all star game

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.

I put 350 on Evans winning

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

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

It takes longer than a half

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?

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

Good call LP... He should've

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.

Hypothetical, but...

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

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....
