All-Star Saturday Night Revisited

LOS ANGELES — Blake Griffin wasn’t the only man on center stage here Saturday night. He’s just the only one crazy enough to jump over the hood of a car.

A night that ended with Griffin standing on the hood of a Kia as he won the 26th Sprite Slam Dunk Contest was the capper on an at times brilliant All-Star Saturday night.

James Jones left a surprise winner, as did Steph Curry and Team Atlanta. The biggest winners, though, had to be all of us. All-Star Weekend hasn’t seen a Saturday night as satisfying as this one was in some time. And lucky for you, we’ve wrapped it all up in a nice box for you (courtesy of the crack crew in the HT audio-visual club) with All-Star Saturday night revisited:

    Props to James Jones, Steph Curry and Team A-T-L

    Blake won the popularity contest, i mean slam-dunk contest……..

    Next year they hopefully leave the finals to the judges. Its hard to watch someone such as McGee put up some really creative, impressive dunks, and have the other guy put up 1 good dunk out of 4 and win just because its the fans who get to vote.

    Heres an idea, let the fans award an extra 5 points max to what the judges have. It keeps the fans invovled, and it would hopefully be more fair, because the voting resulted in what I feel is a very trashy finish to an exciting competition.
