    The fans at the celebrity game were told at the beginning of the game that we would be voting for the MVP via text messaging..... After hearing all of the girls squealing for Bierber every time he touch the ball, I knew the jig was up. Especially when they said time to vote and every woman in the stands except Ms Dre pulled out their smart phones and started texting.

    Leading scorer Scottie Pippin didn't stand a chance as Bieber won despite shooting 3 for 9 and playing on the losing team. I guess his two three pointers were enough.:sssh:

    IMO, Kobe deserved it. He played a near flawless game against real defense. He led all other players in both points, rebounds, and tied for the most steals with > 50% shooting in a winning effort. Lebron's game was also spectacular, but he didn't win.

    Don't let the high score fool you. Because they weren't running plays, the number of possessions in the game was inflated (130+ ish). Just look at the FG% if you want to get an indication of the effort level on D.

    51% from the field to 47%. That's in line with a regular NBA game. 24% and 29% from 3-point range for some of the best shooters in the game. You know these guys are going to make at a +40% clip if they aren't fully guarded.

    Also, 26 FTA to 28 FTA. That's too many fouls to think that they were letting each other score.


    This dunks looks really impressive on the slow mo:

    On the one hand I have a grudging respect for LBJ for trying to fire his team up and actually playing to win the game down the stretch. On the other hand I do love it when he loses.

    Loved the double dunk when I saw it. Slo-mo made it awesome.

    The Pistons and Cavs should be allowed to shoot at 2 hoops during the game like he did.

    McGee traveled on that double dunk.

    I don't think so. Despite his antics and his reputation, LeBron is a softie. If he gets hit hard and it hurts, he'll stop driving and turn into a jump shooter. That's why the Celtics can stop him. They are not afraid to hurt LeBron.

    Circa 2006, yes, I'd say that would've been a good move.
