This weekend the NBA subjected us to some very un-All-Star performances. First was Paul Pierce, a career 36.9% free-throw shooter, winning the 3-Point Contest. Then Nate Robinson, a 5’9″ non-All-Star, won his 3rd straight Dunk Contest. At least the All-Star Game was decent last night but I wasn’t aware that Usher was still popular? Is that the best they could do?
