Kudos to Swin Cash, Chauncey Billups and Bill Laimbeer for winning the All Star Shooting Stars Championship. I do have to say a few things about the contest itself.

  • I love Bill Laimbeer, but couldn’t they have given him a jersey that was a little less form fitting?
  • He still shoots those threes with that little “hop” that I always enjoyed.
  • Gotta love Bill for giving the refs hell when the shot clock stopped on them and he wanted to make sure they got some seconds knocked off their time.
  • Bill had some shiny AF1’s on.
  • Even though Chicago got disqualified, they still missed a shot in the corner from their WNBA representative Dupree, so with that said Detroit would have still probably won.
  • I didn’t realize how tall Swin Cash actually is.
  • Love it how everyone still hates Bill and he still seems to love it.
  • Gotta love how Swin broke out the Deeeee-troit Baskent-ballllll in the middle of boos. Check out the VIDEO.

Though it wasn’t a huge event, it was nice to see Bill out there again pushing for a Detroit win.

    With all due respect to wayne newton and the NBA trying to keep the “las vegas” theme going, that pre-game entertainment was horrible. Wayne newton looked like a robot (via facial lifts) and lip synced all the songs. Wish they would of had John Legend play again this year.

    Cash and Billups made those shots look wicked easy.

    To true Nate. When I found out that he was lip syncing, I was disappointed. Also, he did look like he had a pound and a half of make-up on his face. Any who, Deeeee-troit Bas-ket Balllll!!!! ^.^

    theres stories on espn.com and the free press that say chauncey was upset at the east’s lack of effort during the game…i’m glad that he shows a desire to win every time he steps onto the court

    ^^i knew itt ! i could tell chauncey was annoyed.. i was mad too.. they had sooo many turnovers, they weren’t going for ANY rebounds, and they were just goofing off trying to dunk every possession they had. i was getting soo aggravated with them. the west was actually serious about it.

    then i guess the east realized in the 4th quarter they were getting the shit kicked out of them so they decided, oh maybe we turn on our game now that we’re down 35.

    lol but then i realized that it’s just the all star game. and the east DID have more fun than the west it seemed, so i guess that’s good.

    but im glad chauncey knows when its time to play.

    Yea, the east seemed much more interested in putting on a dunk show, can see why Billups got a tad bit frustrated. LeBron at one time put up 4 shots in a row, including a bad copycat version of McGrady’s off the backboard dunk and a 3 point air ball. Oh well, it’s all in fun I guess.

    Faux King James won the MVP last year because of the Pistons. Pistons should have gotten that MVP trophy last year.

    And someone please tell Shaq that his butt is too damn big to be a point guard, anyone catch Melo’ ROFL at Shaq???
