You're completely on point. Folks have been assuming every single dunk must be brand new to be appreciated. Not the case.

The gimmicks are flat out embarrassing. The feeling I had watching Kenny Smith interact with contestants was similar to that feeling I get when I'm watching a guy get rejected by the hot girl on TV. It's not real, but it still made me cringe hard.

I'ma pray that the All Star game isn't this bad. With this dead Orlando Crowd and the fact that no one gives a **** anymore, I'm scared for what's to come tomarrow

At least people'll remember the glow in the dark dunk, poorly executed as it was. You can't do a glow in the dark dunk when like 15% of you is actually glowing. Can't be that hard to get a full glow in the dark uniform.

its funny because the lights he used were black lights

if he wore the white pacers jersey he wouldve glowed perfectly

I enjoyed every event except for the dunk contest, because it was kind of a let down. There's only so much you can do. Posterizing a guy in a game is far better.
