    Nice to see RJ and WCJ out there, too.


    Game is awful as usual right now.

    Hah. RJ with the intentional foul of Zion to prevent the runaway dunk.

    Grant Hill was getting some serious halftime ribbing for his performance enhanced hairline.

    And Zion broke the backboard apparently.

    As they were transitioning off halftime I heard Grant tell Steve Nash that he played a little bit like Bobby Hurley.

    RJ with 27 in the US v. World Rising Stars game. High man. Zion didn't do much except dunk a few times, including 3 dunk misses in garbage (well, the whole game is garbage) time at the end. Zion seemed to be embarrassed to be given the ball and a clear lane 3 times in a row.

    Iím very interested in seeing Dwight and Pat in the dunk contest.


    I do not understand why DJ Khalid or whatever is a person people hire to do things.

    And then he dunked over Tacko Fall. Tacko. Fall.

    And booing in the building because he didnít win!

    What a dunk contest!

    Kenny Smith sounded bitter all throughout. He must have been checking the score at the dump.

    Gordon got jobbed. Crazy he didn’t win.

    I’d love to see LaVine, Gordon, Jones, and Zion next year.

    Yeah, nothing against Jones but Gordon has fielded some of the best, most creative and athletic dunks when he's been it. The Tacko Fall dunk should have taken the cake but I thought this one was just incredible and the best dunk of the night.

    It was awesome. It reminded me a lot of this dunk by Zion... from high school:

    So maybe itís because I canít dunk and donít understand the nuance about what is difficult and what isnít, but I donít understand why Gordonís side of backboard on-handed dunk was so transcendent?

    This. Gordon, LaVine, and Zion alone would be a huge ratings draw. If Iím TNT Iím already calling their agents.

    Anyone else see some serious parallels between RJ and Zion in the rising stars game and our team last year?
