All Star Le Weekend


It's the NBA All Star weekend, and it's taking place right here in LA. Despite being a huge  NBA fan, I've never been into the All Star festivities. Yesterday watching the rookies vs sophomores game, I remembered why. They don't try at all. Still, this year's line up is the best it's been in many years, so I'll try to check it out tomorrow.

I'm predicting Durant wins the All Star MVP award with around 20 points. The NBA is really pushing Durant to become a star, although I don't think he has the charisma necessary yet to do it. His "nice guy" act gets good press, but personally I find it a little boring.

I predict a Blake Griffin victory for the dunk contest. The dunk contest has been so lame in recent years, thanks to Nate Robinson and a lack of star power. Blake Griffin is in need of a huge public push to really get his name out there to casual fans, and I'm sure they won't fuck up this chance.

No marketing entry today, and I plan to sprinkle in a lot of these random posts into my blog.
