Thoughts:

  • This event is generally a complete joke, but I'm genuinely interested in watching this year, if only because of two players on the East team: Jason Williams and Oscar Schmidt.

  • I guess this means Baron Davis' comeback is officially over.
  • I wonder if DeMar DeRozan will be there to support Romeo Miller and Master P.
  • Does this mean Kevin Hart is not involved at all? I'll believe that when I see it.
