Air-Canada, the Answer and the All-Stars.

Desmond Mason was flying high. Ray Allen was showing off his sweet touch from three-point land. And the Vince Carter and Allen Iverson show led the East to a last minute victory. It was all part of the slam dunking, rim rocking, aerial showcase at the 2001 NBA all-star weekend.

Vince Carter decided not to defend his crown in the dunk contest, but he still showed plenty of jam during Sunday's game. Air Canada poured in 16 points for the Eastern All Stars - including a spectacular 360-slam in the second quarter. But it was Philadelphia's Allen Iverson who was the real hero for the East. The Answer scored 15 points in the last 9 minutes and the East came back to win it after trailing by 19 points. The final score: East 111, West 110. The MVP: Iverson.

The Western All-Stars also had their share of highlights. In the third quarter Kobe Bryant fed an alley-oop pass to Kevin Garnett off the backboard and Garnett slammed it down with serious authority.

It's too bad those moves weren't around in the dunk contest the day before. Desmond Mason of the Sonics took the crown by slamming the ball after leaping over a Sonic team mate. But this year's contest basically sucked. Lots of guys missed their dunks and most of the moves were pretty lame - let's hope Air Canada decides to fly into next year's contest.

    The only time you slide is at second and at third, sometimes at home. When you're stealing from first base you need to slide to second unless the opponents pitcher is clueless or is a rookie.
