2009 NBA All Star Weekend Wrap Up

NBA All Star 2009 Pictures, Images and Photos
I'm a little behind the curve on posting about NBA All Star Weekend because I was busy all weekend but I figured I would put up some of the best clips that I found this morning.  Here we go:

Shaq did a dance routine with the dance crew The Jabba Wockeez after he was introduced for the All Star Game.  I have to say, this might have been one of my favorite moments of the weekend.  Not only did he have the balls to put this together a full routine but he also did it fairly well for someone his size.  The dude is 7'1'!!!!  The fact that he can move like that is impressive as hell, especially at his age.
Terrell Owens completely OWNED the Celebrity All Star Game with TWO dunks which included a sick alley oop from one of the Globetrotters.  I knew he had hops but he was throwing those down easily.  Dude is just a BEAST and a great athlete.
The NBA finally implemented a game of H.O.R.S.E. which seems like one of the more logical competitions for All Star Weekend.  Everyone who has ever touched a basketball has probably played this game and the Pros love to play before games and during practice.  Sounds like a Win/Win.  The game turned out decent with a come from behind win by Kevin Durant and I think it went over well.  I expect it to get better over the next few years with some more exposure and creativity.  Just get rid of the lame G.E.I.C.O. sponsorship for the letters.  WACK!!!
The Dunk Contest was entertaining and provided some theatrics with a 52% to 48% vote from the fans to give Nate Robinson the win.  The all green Kryptonite uniform, shoes and ball really won over the crowd when he dunked over Dwight Howard.  He used his back as a catapult but it was still impressive nonetheless.  I think Dwight ran out of good dunks because he could have won had he done something creative like in the previous rounds.  The 12 foot dunk he did was just ridiculous.  Dude could go another 2 feet.  He is just a freak of nature.
