    *raises hand*

    Most of them, anyway.

    I was surprised to learn that Carrot Top will be playing for the East in the celebrity game. Do I just not remember him playing before? I wonder if he's any good.

    As for the real game, I will be cheering for the East, as usual. I think they have a good chance.

    Do the players take the All-Star Game seriously (like State of origin in Rugby League in Australia) or is it just a bit of fun to them?

    If there were more Mavericks there(and there should be), you'd have no chance. :)

    Dwayne Wade is a sellout, that is all. :)

    They take it semi-seriously, but it is mostly for fun (and to showcase the league).

    1st half is showboating and turnovers...2nd half they start to care

    No, because there's absolutely zero defense played. Granted, it's hard to mesh as a unit in a weekend, but that's just the way it is. That said, a high scoring regular season game is infinitely more exciting than a typically high scoring All Star game.

    Man, Chris Paul just continues to amaze me. Mind you, that was the perfect style for him to play in, but he was EVERYWHERE. I don't think I've seen someone in THAT good position to get steals. And he hardly fouled (although there were a few instances).

    Bargs showed some of his stuff though, so that was fun to see.

    And Dwight got robbed.

    Barkley was quite funny last night. As usual.

    I expected Bavetta to win.
