All-Star Saturday Night. We in the building…

Yup, it’s a live blog

By Sam Rubenstein

I’m confused. Ben, Lang, Khalid are running out the door… eff this, DWIGHT is the winner! Let’s party!

My bag is packed. Obviously Dwight is the winner. Just give the word, let’s get on the bus. Everyone’s making their way to the exits during Dr. J’s speech. Come on man, let’s GO. Oh, Gerald Green has another dunk? What the hell is going on?

Inevitable since the back of the backboard dunk, Supermanning a slam dunk contest was the peak… great show Dwight. Now comes the fan voting. A or B, you decide.

Gerald Green no shoes? Doesn’t he realize who’s paying for this whole weekend? Gerald Green, you have made… uh there’s like a mini-nerf hoop up there for Dwight. A ball is stashed in it. Dwight Howard is running his campaign on ideas.

Alyssa Milano gives Gerald Green’s first dunk a 9. He goes through the legs for her and it’s not enough, man I’d… whoa, focus. Dwight’s having a big night. This time it’s the tap to the dunk. Turns out Alyssa’s vote doesn’t count, this is for you the fans. Make it interesting Gerald, make it interesting.

Actually, I don’t think Superman himself could have pulled that off! It’s over.

SUPERMAN!

Lang says “for his second dunk, Gerald Green is going to blow out his NBA career.”

Gerald Green’s cupcake dunk, very creative, but maybe a tad too gimmicky. He was back at the other end so we didn’t have the same view we did of the Dwight dunk. Lang is very pleased that Dwight is out in front though. And the Conley-Gay 1-2, that was good. 48. A lot of ENERGY here! The dunk contest kind of feels like it’s back.

Jamario Moon first dunk, you saw it… they cut to the scoreboard of Amare with his kid in his arms, out cold. Rudy Gay, not great but it’s early…there may be some action on this event with people I know. Let’s go Gerald Green! They switch sides so we’re up close now as Dwight gets ready… he tried the bounce off the back to the front dunk that was on youtube… then he outs it down. That is a 50. This might not be a contest.

Jason Kapono is Dwyane Wade’s ex-teammate. Sometimes I like to make mistakes on purpose to see if you’re all paying attention. Give yourselves a big pat on the back. The judges are announced and Magic is one of them. Lang and Ben may have mentioned Magic being at the Jordan party last night. He had an entourage of like 100 people. Little kids and mascots out on the court. It’s dunking time. We are at the wrong end of the court to see it. We had a big lunch today so I skipped pre-event dinner. That’s starting to get to me now.

Khalid’s computer is doing things computers aren’t meant to do. I think it needs an exorcism. There is a photographer going around the press box taking photos of me and other people sitting here typing away. Very strange trip so far. Jason Kapono lives for this sh-t! He just tied the old Craig Hodges record and the podium is out. KAPONO! Alright, little break, the dunks are coming.

I think I have a Rick Ross at courtside sighting. He’s got a big bucket of popcorn, like Rick Ross should. The guy next to him is Terrell Owens, in a glittery shirt as always. So now I think the Rick Ross guy is just a henchman, holding his boss’s popcorn for him. Dirk eliminates Steve, and it’s Peja time. Me and Lang played a little NBA Live at the LRG suite earlier today. I was making it rain on him with Peja. Jason Kapono, the defending champion now shoots. FIRE at the end… The opposite of how his teammate DWade went out in a non-title defense.

Boobie Gibson… man Damon Jones must HATE him. You guys and girls (hi Holly) are all complaining about Reggie Miller. We’ve got like the Mortal Kombat soundtrack on full blast here while they shoot. Steve Nash had a horrible run, 9 points. He’s in dead last for now.

I just met THE Aggrey Sam! Jealous? Rip Hamilton finishes strong to start the competition. Oooooh… but his foot was on the line. Rip talked a lot of trash about beating Kobe, a.k.a. the noodle finger. Second Jimmy Jamm sighting of the trip.

Three point shootout time. They put Arnold on the jumbotron. His wife Maria Schreiber is here with him. Why is she wearing so many beads? Just kidding. Oh how I love a friendly game of character assassination.

It is finally settled. DERON > CHRIS! Re-draft! You blew it Hornets. Here’s your extra link to my brief Q&A of a warrior’s preparation. There are boos. He’s not an All-Star by the way.

Deron Williams sets a new record. I told you! I mean, I told you this was a budding scandal. Spygate lives! Chris Paul, be a hero.

Dikembe Mutombo is handed a microphone to talk about some of his and the NBA’s charity work. I have no idea what he said, but as always it was amazing. Hi commenters down there. Russ, the Henry Abbott was a Lang call. It’s a look. Chris Tucker sighting. Alyssa Milano – who was a coach in the celeb game Friday night which we missed. (serenity now)

Dwyane Wade loses the handle early, and it’s all downhill from there, much like his Miami Heat season. There are actually boos. This was a sorry title defense. Booooooooooo! Refund! Deron Williams vs. Chris Paul. There is nobody cheering for Deron Williams. But remember, he trained like Drago in Rocky IV, with computers.

Skills challenge time. Deron Williams did it exactly the way he played it as a video game earlier today. Jason Kidd missed many open jumpers, it’s true. Chris Paul gets his ovation. Then he goes out and effing kicks a$$ at this… he’s good. Wade, you got your work cut out for you.

Sometimes scoreboard trivia they ask the players is stupid. This time, it was not. Some All-Stars were asked what does Andoullie mean? LeBron said it means “and do we” do this or and do we do that. There was laughter. None of the players knew it, but Steve Nash had the right answer (a type of sausage). The NBA clearly fed him that answer a la Quiz Show so you all think he’s smart.

The Spurs are the champs of everything. A quick look around the press box… hey J.E. Skeets, look over your right shoulder, end of the row behind you. Jason Kidd is on the bench in a Nets warm-up suit. The skills challenge is up next. I believe I have spotted Arnold Schwarzennegger courtside.

David Robinson can’t hit a shot, and I think he’s up to like 4% bodyfat. Lazy. Admiral hits the half court shot to close it out and does a geeky Admiral fist pump…. never mind…

DAMON JONES IS IN THE BUILDING! Why wouldn’t he be? Wasn’t he in the three point contest last year?

Whatever, one of those acrobatic trampoline dunk groups, the rimrockers just put some energy in the building. This shooting stars event just doesn’t do it for me. Final round, Chicago vs. San Antonio. I have no idea what’s going on.

The players and ex-players are warming up for the shooting stars competition. Bill Laimbeer, David Robinson, Eddie Johnson, and so on. Whoa B.J. Armstrong.

Hello there. It’s Saturday night. You can stop holding your collective breath, Khalid and I have our luggage. The anthems are over, it’s Erin Nicole time. Lang is excited.

A nice Canadian anthem sung by Henry Abbott by the way. Have people tuned in to watch this on TV yet? People I’ve been talking to around town have kept asking me “When’s the dunk contest?” It’s early.

I guess the way to do this is to have the newer writing on top and just keep re-posting. Let’s do it.

    I’ll post my TNT wrap after it’s all over. Right now I’m trying to figure out whether to leave in my “Henry Abbott performed the Canadian Natioanl Anthem?” joke since you already posted it. Great beards think alike.

  • riggs

    like i said in the other thread, candice dupree is cute.

  • riggs

    anybody else finds no reason for tyler perrys house of payne commercials? and the irony of “very funny” when it wasnt?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    For those in New Orleans, be happy you’re not having to endure Reggie Miller. I liked him better when he was a player, and I HATED him when he was a player.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    It’s a race between Tyler Perry, Dwyane Wade and Harry Connick, Jr. for the annual “Make It Stop” award.

  • riggs

    two seven footers making half court shots look easy….i can see why reggies pissed.

  • riggs

    also i feel sorry for that guy who used to be on city guys, from two syndicated tv shows to making footlocker commercials….damn.

    Did you see Bill Laimbeer tonight, he was rocking some Converse React! Unless they are retro’s coming out I haven’t seen yet. Here is a link to the pic.

    UGGGGH REGGIE IS KILLING ME ALREADY. He just called Duncan “Dunking”.

    Sam, your “he’s up to 4% bodyfat” line had me laughing.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    HOW old is the younger Kidd?

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Since,non of the all star festivities are being televised over here,I’d like to reiterate a perviously made point,f*ck you NBA,and ahem Holly

  • riggs

    tj got a bigger mustache than i do!?

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    izzo, they’re televising it here in brazil, and I think holly is asking l’il kidd’s age because kid’s like 5-6 years old and got a big mustache

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    so.. no therre-peat for dwade

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Rubens:If only I didn’t live 000′s of miles away from Brazil

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    no three-peat neither

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    ahaha Izzo, if you knew how many emails I’ve got to respond to this weekend…I’m battling this stupid sinus cold after pulling a week of all-nighters… And I definitely let all of the emails piled up. I’ll get you, I promise!

    And Wade’s performance here was fitting.

  • namik

    riggs he had those when he was 3 days old. And damn is he an ugly kid. Wade needs to just leave after the asg.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Holly:Just kidding and being a pest,no rush.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I’m pretty sure Reggie Miller also said “John Naismith” earlier. He should have to do D-League and WNBA games for 10 years before he’s allowed anywhere near a real NBA game, let alone All-Star or the playoffs.

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    izzo: at least you don’t have to endure a soccer only culture

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Rubens:I take it you don’t know where I’m from?And I do love soccer btw

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    T.J. would have done better in the Skills Challenge than his dad. Also, I’m worried that even if Devean George changes his mind, T.J. will invoke his own no-trade clause.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    I would like to point out that it’s 2o’clock am here,you people are lucky to have me.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    What the HELL is LeBron wearing?

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    We’re always lucky to have you, Izzo. Is tomorrow night’s game on live at least?

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    izzo: I forgot, and i love soccer too, but when every “sports” show is about soccer, and every sport on tv is soccer it kinda gets to you…

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    what, no “Iam deron Williams dammit”, what happened sam?

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    Ben,nope.No NBA coverage at all this year over here.I actually have work to do but I’ll take nay praise you want to throw out.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Michael NZ

    At least this year they looked like they cared… well, not Wade. I mean, Kidd, CP and Williams actually ran kinda hard. Which is more than what can be said for previous years.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    In the interest of full disclosure I’m wearing a pair of East Swingman shorts right now. Thanks, adidas!

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    *Any praise.I need coffee

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Russ, are you sure you are not wearing your Bengtson jersey too? hahaha Izz, that is brutal. Now that they have Kenny and Charles, it is time to ditch Reggie. I hope they put him in his place.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    yes, Izzo. Fuel up with some caffeine and settle in for a long night with us keeping you up to day right here. :)

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Saving that for tomorrow, Holly.

    Russ, I made the Henry Abbott national anthem joke to Sam as it was happening, too.

    Hi Sam!! How is Lang feeling about his Hawks right now?

    Over/under on Charles Oakley coming out punching Kobe in the face and then go on to win the 3point contest?

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    have u ever tried to put a 4 year old, who loves b-ball, to bed while there’s b-ball stuff on tv? not easy

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Rip stood on the line for the entire last rack, they noticed on the replay, and changed his final score like three times. It’ll take a miracle (or at least some really bad shooting from the white boys) for him to make the next round.

  • http://why-bother-reading.blogspot.com/ H to the izzo

    OFF TOPIC:Either what I’m currently writing is pure genius or nonsensical bulls*t,the latter is most likely but I like my chances.

    I’m starting to think English is a second language for the Millers. “Some players like to line the rack at an angle by the titty.” Hilarious

  • http://yahoo.com DP

    Kapono should average around 15 a game. 5 three pointers a game. Raptors should play him more. play wit it.

    his stroke is nice. so easy, effortless.

    Titties is now a lexicon.

  • http://tadone.blogspot.com TADOne

    I called Kapono just like Chuck. Actually, I was paying more attention to Chuck and Kenny telling jokes than the competition. Chuck’s line about Dirk having been out on Bourbon Street the night before killed me.

    Ha! Titties. Word up Eboy and Holly and everyone.

    Lebron, in that overcoat, looks like he belongs on a Sports Illustrated for Kids cover with a magnifying glass in one hand and a ball in the other looking for a solution to why he bites his nails.

    Gerald Green’s dunk was the stupidest thing I’ve seen in a dunk contest since Mike Finley’s cartwheel. Dwight should put it back there for his next dunk and eat the damn thing.

    What else can he do to top THAT!!!

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Ben: Most likely, but let’s see what he does in the final.
    Sam: It was Lowry/Gay

    Oh my goodness! Overrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    I’m glad I just watched that with your guys/girls comments to go along with it. Made is seem so much more unbelievable.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Was that really a dunk, though? I was confused when it happened, and I’m still a little confused. When he pulled off the jersey and put on the cape I thought he was going to jump over Shaq.

  • http://tadone.blogspot.com TADOne

    200!

  • says

    somewhere, Shaq is crying.

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    poor izzo

  • Raynmann

    what he goin’ do next? only thing dwight didn’t do is take money of the top of the glass

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Since Dwight goes second (that’s the way it works, right?), I hope he intentionally shatters the backboard on his last dunk and presents George Shinn with a check immediately afterwards.

  • http://www.gigginonya.com/images/free20kobe.jpg backboard

    haha russ, and i am confused too, dunk was insane, but he didnt reach the rim….

    This is now a dated comment in the hyper-fast world of this blog, but Sam, I prefer to think of Alyssa Milano as a LA Dodger blogger.

    Go sit Gerald.

    gerald green knew it was over, so he bought the lucky green clovers on

    Mandy Murphy does not approve of Gerald Green’s last dunk.

  • http://www.rockthedash.com bouncyman

    does dwight even need to dunk it again?

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    text “B”

  • vmcb

    oh my god… Dwight is a mad man

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    This is gonna be off the hook.

  • riggs

    dwights creativity is what i love the most about him, hes just a giant kid

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    if he dunks a little ball on a 12 inch rim and the real ball on the real rim, I’m not watching basketball again this year

  • http://tadone.blogspot.com TADOne

    If Dwight pulls this off I’m getting drunk!

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Dwight’s last dunk was obnoxious.

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    TAD way ahead of you, lol

  • riggs

    with this last one i wanted him to dunk a small ball at the top of the backboard

  • Vortex Knight

    dwight did not save the best for last unfortunately

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    If Dwight doesn’t win, I’ll stop commenting forever.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Dwight’s first dunk was the best one of the contest, IMO. Keep props out of the Slam Dunk conetst.

  • vmcb

    if anybody seriously votes for Green, he/she is an idiot

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I still can’t believe Gerald Green went through his legs twice in the same round.

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    right on Russ

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    For good or bad, Russ?

  • riggs

    wtf @ this conversation?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Bad. And I’m mad that Dwight didn’t shatter the glass.

  • Vortex Knight

    ha, I think the NBA server crashed cause I can’t load the page to vote

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Doctor J should quiet down.

  • vmcb

    damn, the crowd booing Dr. J.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    It would have been great if he shattered it, for sure, Russ.

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    I can’t vote! NBA.com is not working!

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    go to youtube izzo

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    damn it.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I hope the fans vote overwhelmingly for Gerald Green and ruin everything.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    And that’s why I don’t eat shrimp.

  • http://tadone.blogspot.com TADOne

    Doesn’t matter, Dwight won. I’m heading out. That was a great competition. Everyone have a great night!

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    HaHa!

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Man… Dwight’s superman was brilliant.. And then them playing the music. This may be tied with VC for me. DAMN. that first dunk is stilll with me.. Dunking with your head behind the backboard….Athleticism at his size!!

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Till tomorrow!!!!!!

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    no, thank YOU, Dwight. Classy.. I like it.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    ONLY 70%? Who the eff are these other morons?

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Good night, peoples.

    holly: first dunk was the best one

  • http://www.rockthedash.com bouncyman

    See you guys all tomorrow

  • http://www.yahoo.com Michael NZ

    Only 78%?!

  • http://tadone.blogspot.com TADOne

    My man. See ya’ll tomorrow.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I voted for Dennis Kucinich.

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    wish to know what Shaq has to say about the superman costume

  • http://www.yahoo.com Michael NZ

    Is Cheryl Miller drunk?

  • http://king-mag.com Jozen

    Did you hear that? Cheryl Miller said Dwight got 70 percent of the vote. Clearly Gerald Green’s family make up 30 percent of the vote and are the same people who are still voting for Hillary, i.e. less educated.

  • RV

    Gerald green is too gimmicky….the superman dunk would have had more flair to it without the costume, the costume was entertaining, but if he would have just came out and took off it would have been more dramatic

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    to me, this was the best dunk competition in years. I enjoyed it. A lot.

  • RV

    and way to take the crowd out of it by accepting text in votes, everything had died down by the time the votes were in, they should have just asked to crowed to cheer for the winner, same result, more excitement..

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I’m bummed Dwight didn’t break out the literal kiss-the-rim dunk. Hopefully he defends his title in Phoenix.

  • riggs

    22% of basketball fans are idiots, or timberwolves fans.

  • riggs

    also i feel bad for the rude gay youtube promotion

  • http://www.rockthedash.com bouncyman

    riggsor paid by gerald green, riggs

  • RV

    is anyone else, besides russ, bothered by the fact that the supermand dunk wasn’t actually dunked?

  • http://www.rubensborges.wordpress.com Rubens

    I do n’t think so rv

  • RV

    Holly, i asked about TJ kidd in another all star post, i saw a photo on Yahoo where he looked 13-14, then i saw another where they’re having breakfast and Jason is wiping TJ’s mouth, which made me realize the kid is like 7 yrs old..maybe even 6

  • riggs

    tj kidd is 18 years old

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    just found a picture of the Superman dunk (which indeed wasn’t a dunk) on yahoo. That is one awesome pic. It’s one of those things you see in a cartoon, but not in real life. Check it out.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Man… I just got a BEAUTIFUL picture of that first dunk off of yahoo! for my background and facebook picture. Russ, I need that slamadamonth……I can’t wait another month for it.. whooooooooo.

  • http://www.nba.com/allstar2008/slam_dunk/ hursty

    300

  • RV

    russ, i feel like your posting my thoughts on here, especially on voting for Green to mess it all up, i tried, but did anyone notice that NBA.com went down? I tried it over 30 sec or so and got nothing

  • http://www.nba.com/allstar2008/slam_dunk/ hursty

    im out, a pity the all star game is not so all star this year, still theres more players than last year.

  • RV

    i think they need to stop all the gimmick nonsense and focus on the dunk, its cool to add to it like DH did, but the only thing that impressed me about Green’s dunk was his lung capacity, i laughed my ass off when dawkins knocked his shoes of the table

  • RV

    Holly, did u get the one where he’s facing left or right?

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    i think the best one is when he is facing left. You can see the cape clearly, and the dude is just flying.

  • RV

    thats what i was thinking Gerard, but i just saw another at a different angle, taken almost from the floor in the corner, that one is ridiculous, looks like he jumped off a trampoline

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    I know which one you mean. To be honest, I probably saved 5 or 6 of them to my computer, and that was one of them. Photoshop them all together, and it would make a pretty nice desktop.
