White Hat Sports Headlines

The NBA all star game and all star weekend in my mind was a flop. If you go back to Saturday night the skill competition was not that skillful, and some of players gave half effort throughout the contest. Than going to the three point contest, the best three point shooter was not even on display Saturday night, if you watched the NBA all star game you saw Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics make 3 point shot after 3 point shot in the actual game. Which leads you to wonder why he was not in the 3 point contest? The dunk contest had its moments with Dwight Howard and Gerald Green’s first dunks respectively, but overall it was weak. I know the dunk contest is a big draw still but why, we have seen all the dunks from Jordan and Wilkins to Carter and Richardson, everything that can be done has been done. The NBA all star game was just like any other NBA game (lacking in defense). When both teams score 120+ points, that is awful, what ever happened to players wanting to prove they were solid two way players on offense and defense? I also think the all stars need to wear there home and away jerseys like they use to (east=home and west=away) these new jersey’s are just dreadful, I mean you expect me to go buy my favorite NBA all star’s jersey when they look like that? I would not get caught dead in that ugly material of silver, gold and blue. Yes the NBA all star weekend has come and gone, the sad thing is it’ll be back again in 362 days!
