And the Timberwolves still are not doing it and may never because KG and the organization are not on speaking terms...

 

Even though he finished his career there?

I talk about the Knicks being a dumpster fire franchise, but the Wolves are right there with them.

 

Just one playoff appearance since 2005, and openly feuding with the one player worth a damn in the 30 years the franchise has been in existence.
 

Like the Knicks, they can’t sign quality free agents, and any halfway decent player they develop is gone the first chance they get to bolt.
 

All of this is probably karma for letting the Lakers move to Los Angeles.

“Letting” like they had a choice, and atleast the Knicks are in New York, people wanting to leave Minnesota is a given when they can move literally anywhere else and it be an improvement.

Aaron Gordon's shoes tonight. His signature shoe from China's 361.

Be interesting to see if the NBA outlawed dudes jumping over other dudes.

 

Cause it's kind of boring at this point.

Agreed. Gordon's last dunk, while it's impressive how high he can jump, was essentually just a two handed dunk.

 

Granted, I say this not able to touch the rim, but I don't think that dunk is anywhere near a 50.

Should have been a 60.

 

Stop making Taako a bit/circus act.

And those shoes are still a$$

They should have just made Gordon and Jones Jr. co-champions tonight. They were both amazing and did some stuff that I've never seen before. It's hard to top the 2016 contest, but I think this one was right next to it.

Gordon performed a mind-blowing never-done-before dunk during a time, when everything's been seen and done and when you thought nothing can impress you anymore in the dunk contest. Then jumps over Tacko (I don't care that it's another jump over a person - it's Tacko Fall) and gets robbed. Again.

 

Jones' last dunk was nothing extraordinary - we already knew he can jump - and was well inside the FT line. Shouldn't have gotten him any 10's.

Sometimes (lol just sometimes) the NBA is too far up its own ass.

 

Can't we just watch basketball? Do we need this...whatever this is? Ode to Chicago players/interpretive poem? It's cool and all, but I want to see loose defense, too-long three pointers, and botched alley oops.

NBA All-Star Game is the best pageantry, as far as excessive pageantry at sporting events goes.

 

Not too sure about Chaka Khan though.

I'm watching the game. Well, at least, I watched the first quarter. It's -- not compelling. I saw Siakam and Lowry get some time on the floor. That's enough for me.

And ugh - Chaka Khan murdered that anthem. Why do guest singers always feel the need to embellish every note?

I really like 65th & Ingleside, Work Out and Wala Cam and I enjoyed what I saw tonight.

 

But apparently Twitter hates Chance. Why?

I mean in general he is a deeply corny personality so it's a tough start. A lot of people hated his musical pivot on Coloring Book (I did not, thought it was brilliant) but then absolutely nobody liked his album last year, and rightly so, it's awful.

Not really a shame for the rest of the league, but Kawhi/AD/LeBron would have been something to see.
