Something tells me Steph Curry is gonna chuck away in losing fashion when the ball should really go to Blake and Durant.

NBA TV's David Aldridge just did a 1 on 1 with Griffin apparently but can't find it yet. Maybe it's not released.

I think DA recorded a bunch of interviews today with players and NBA TV will air them either tomorrow or throughout All-Star week.

I'd much rather watch Clipper games than the all star weekend but it is nice to see the skills challenge and the 3-pt shootout!

A whole weekend and only 3pt contest and skills challenge worth watching. Dunk contest will suck as usual. Celebrity all star game trash. i don't think they even have one celebrity playing. Rookie Soph games has been unwatchable. The all star game is only worth watching last 5 minutes. So we have less then a hour of NBA allstar game is wort watching.

Hopefully Durant, Harden, Curry, Lillard, Parker, LMA, and Dwight get tons of minutes to wear themselves out and CP3 and Blake get lots of rest!

Doc Rivers says that Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are the ones who need time off during the All-Star break, because of all the minutes they are playing.

I miss the early 2000s days of the dunk contest, back when Vince Carter, Jason Richardson, & Desmond Mason put on amazing shows. The dunk contest hasn't been good in years. It's a shame what's become of it recently.

BG should come out publicly and say he'll only do it if Lebron does it

Great read on CP3's emotional departure from New Orleans 3 years ago. Wow can you guys believe it's been that long?

I agree. But I felt Blakes Dunk Contest was actually good. Derozan has some nice dunks

and so did javale.

I did like the Blake's contest, but I am a bit biased. Since that year, there hasn't been any memorable single dunks, let alone an entire good-competitive contest.

Isn't strange last year Crawford was on a lot people's list of all star snubs? So what does he do this season? He averages more in points, assists, and rebounds, but it seemed like his name was never even in the discussion for an all star bid. I know DJ was in the all star conversation this year so that might have split the vote for a 3rd Clipper to get in, but it's still a shame that JCrossover got overlooked again.

Like the focus Blake is putting on rest and maybe its why DJ did not want to do the dunk contest. Everyone should be healed up and ready by Tuesday.

Nice article....but I think curry is overrated aside from shooting and I think he is a bit of a punk.

On a side note, does anyone notice whenever they show an all star'a highlights is always against the clippers?

John wall just said blake should have come in third in dunk contest in 2011. What is the point of making a comment like that?

Seriously, we've arguably had the most brutal first half of the season, playing the most games and two 7 game road trips. I'm excited for the guys to get some R&R going into the lighter third of our schedule.

Wall doesn't like Blake because Blake's delayed rookie year robbed him of ROY. Lost count of the times he cried "but he's not really a rookie". Pretty funny how Beal has already overtaken him as the star of their franchise.

I don't hate it,I just don't give a crap about it. I would rather no one from my teams ever makes it so they can rest.

It all started in 1982 when,during the NFL pro game,I ran out real quick during half time to get something to eat and I was t-boned by an old dude in a Buick,I was driving my 3 month old brand new Mazda RX-7. Took the entire left side of the car out. I was going to kill the guy but couldn't get out of my car.

Since then, never a pro-bowl and rarely an all star game from any sport. Bad mojo

Wall's been running his mouth all year. I guess if you can't make yourself relevant on the court, you might as well make yourself relevant by talking ****. roll

Some people need to get over their lack of relevance. Shooting off ones mouth does not a better player make you, but rather makes you look line an arseho**.

I really hate that Paul isn't starting but it sounds like Scott brooks is still thinking about his injury as a factor in how he is approaching the game. Maybe that had something to do with it I don't but the shooting guard excuse, we have no center and it's not like curry is a real point guard

You're just hating because it was against us. I thought that was an awesome dunk.
