    1. During many All-Star games, the topic of an intriguing lineup is brought about.

    Years ago, it was the possibility of the All Big Man lineup (I think it was Webber, Duncan, Nowitzki, Garnett, and O'Neal).

    Never happened.

    So, I think this intriguing lineup of Westbrook with 4 Warriors won't happen either.

    2. Jemele Hill's team will win.

    Oscar Schmidt will be the MVP.

    3. Team World, and Jokic.

    4. Yogi Ferrell

    5. If I'm understanding correctly, it will be the Shumpert/World Peace/Williams rap trio.

    6. Team Russ' handpicked amateur players will win.

    7. Hayward, I want to be BOLD.

    8. Lowry, I want to be BOLD.

    9. Derrick Jones Jr., and I'm not being BOLD.

    10. Usually I pick the East.

    I'll stick with it, but this time I do think the West will win.

    East, Giannis Antetokounmpo.

    Isaiah Thomas has been the best in the first round.

    Nice job by Walker. Struggled with one rack, but good overall.

    I liked the Jones Jr. dunk a little better than the Robinson one.

    I liked Robinson's because he covered his eyes. Jones Jr.'s 2nd dunk has been done before, I think by Iguodala.

    That was probably the best dunk of the night. A 9.

    I can't see your post, FB is blocked at work. I'll check it when I get home.

    I wonder if you posted a pic of Jeremy Evans or DeShawn Stevenson or Jamie Watson or David Benoit or Blue Edwards or Darrell Griffith.

    Why didn't Karl Malone ever participate? :(
