  • Average dunk contest, but an upset.

    7.3
    After all the commercials, and even allowing 20 minutes of preparation time to set up a second, higher backboard, Dwight Howard was defeated by Nate Robinson. This was unexpected because Howard's dunk have received more praise than warranted this year and last, but a 5'8" man jumping over a 6'10" individual may have impressed the fans.



    I predicted Daequan Cook and Derrick Rose to win the 3 Point Contest and Skills Contest respectively, but was surprised by the aforementioned dunk and Shooting Stars winners.



    Reggie Miller mocking Sonny Weems (a guy who has scored only 11 points all season) was funny, but a little harsh.



    All in all not a bad way to spend a Saturday night, but this was a bit disappointing. Hopefully the actual game is better tomorrow night.moreless
