2012 NBA All-Star Weekend

The 2012 NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando, Florida was so jam-packed with entertainment, Disney World reported their lowest numbers in years! From Friday night’s Shaq vs Chuck Rising Stars’ Showdown to Sunday’s All-Star game, the NBA’s All-Star Weekend had more ups and downs than Magic Mountain Roller Coaster!

Celebrity Star

It was going to be hard to top the Justin Bieber spotlight at last year’s Celebrity all-star game… until no-name comedian (Kevin Hart) took center stage of this year’s show. Kevin’s dunk on a plastic kids hoop to upstage a little boy dressed up as Superman had to be the funniest scene at a NBA all-star weekend ever! Kevin went on to win the MVP after his mid-game meltdown and post-game award acceptance dramatics left everyone wondering, “Who is this guy?”


Chuck vs Shaq

One of the coolest new events at the NBA All-Star weekend was this game called “Rising Stars”, where NBA legends and personalities Shaquille O’Neil and Charles Barkley drafted NBA rookies onto their own rosters to play in the game. The best part about this event was watching Shaq and Chuck bicker over their smarts and legendary statuses.

Slam Dunk Drama

Since the first days of the Slam-Dunk contest when Michael Jordan was marveled for making a dunk from the free-throw line… things have become a little more complex. It seems like nowadays to win a dunk contest, you have to have costumes and write plots to “wow” people. This year’s dunk winner was Jeremy Evans for his two-ball dunk while jumping over a teammate.


Gametime Greats

And there was the All-Star Game. Nicki Minaj performed the Musical Act to introduce the players. The game was spectacular, full of jaw dropping skilled plays, great dunks and lots of points. Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan as the all-time All-Star leading scorer and Kevin Durant won the MVP as the West beat the East 151-149.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
