All Talk on All-Star Saturday February 17, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, NBA, Sports, Video.
All-Star Saturday is something I always look forward to, mostly because of the Dunk Contest and 3-Point Shootout.
Shooting Stars Competition
San Antonio’s David Robinson, Tim Duncan, and Beckey Hammon were named the new champions of the Shooting Stars Competition. I thought this team was the least likely to be victorious for the simple fact that they had two 7 footers on their team.
I was shocked to see that the Detroit team of Chauncey Billups, Swin Cash, and Bill Lambier didn’t repeat. I had them repeating, but they were just off last night.
The Skills Challenge is something I think should be replaced with something like horse or one on one. Seeing these guys go through the course half speed just isn’t exciting to me.
Utah’s Deron Williams won the skills challenge beating Chris Paul, Jason Kidd, and Dwayne Wade. Williams set a new record, completing the course in 25.5 seconds, beating New Orleans Chris Paul in the final round.
I was rooting for Cleveland’s Daniel Gibson to come away with the upset on this one. Gibson hit 11 3-pointers in the Rookie-Sophomore game Friday Night, but came up short on Saturday.
The defending champion, Jason Kapono was once again victorious. Kapono tied a 22 year old record set by Craig Hodges, shooting a 25 in the final round. Kapono once again proved that it’s okay to be one dimensional as long as you can shoot.
Was it just me, or was Dirk and Peja surprisingly off this game? Dirk shot an air-ball, and Peja hit the side of the backboard.
The Dunk Contest
Apparently, it is okay to sleep on Jamario Moon. His first dunk was kind of nice though. Not sure why he had Kapono throwing him the pass on his second dunk.
I was very disappointed in Rudy Gay’s performance. I thought he was going to do something special last night. Magic Johnson made a good point about Gay. He said he’s a great in game dunker, but not so special in a dunk contest.
Gerald Green’s Birthday Cake dunk was innovative and creative. At first, I wasn’t sure that he actually blew the candle out, but after viewing the replay, he somehow pulled it off. Green should have got more props from dunking without shoes on. Just running on hardwood makes my feet hurt.
The Birthday Cake
Dwight Howard had an amazing run of dunks last night, and won the contest hands down. That was the best run of dunks since Vince Carter’s performance in Oakland. He did dunks no one has ever seen before, and what made it even more spectacular was a guy that big being so agile. His Superman Dunk was one of the best dunks I have ever seen. It almost looked unreal.
She Got Game February 13, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, Sports, Video.
Two nights ago, high school phenom Brittney Griner made SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays with some great blocks and some impressive drop step dunks. The 6’8” junior has committed to Baylor, and is expected to grow another inch by her senior year. Here is a video that goes more in depth into the legend of Brittney Griner.
DO NOT Sleep on Jamario Moon February 11, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, NBA, Sports, Video.
With the NBA Dunk Contest coming up on February 16th, most NBA fans have no idea who Jamario Moon is, and why he’s in the dunk contest. I must admit, I was asking myself the same question. I found a video of him practicing for the upcoming contest, and the dunks he did in the beginning were good, but not great. Then, the last dunk he did in the video had me thinking… Who’s going to take second this year?
If only his teammates didn’t move the camera. Hopefully, he’ll attempt the dunk on February 16th.

I think we all agree that we’ve seen a completely different side of Randy Moss this season, both on and off the field. Here is a video of Moss telling reporters and fans how he would like to be remembered.
He’s Only 19 Years Old… WOW January 28, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, Sports, Video.
He’s only 19 years old, but this kid can fly. Be sure to check out the dunk at the end of the video.
Roger Clemens Comes Clean January 22, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Baseball, MLB, Sports, Video.
My friend sent me a video of an exclusive interview with Roger Clemens coming clean and admitting he used steroids. Clemens holds nothing back in this interview. Although this is not a real video, it’s certainly good for a laugh.
A 360 Double Between the Legs Dunk?! January 19, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, Sports, Video.
On Wednesday, I posted a video of this dunker named T-Dub doing a 540 dunk with two hands. Many people regard T-Dub as the best dunker in the world, but there is another dunker named The Air Up There that has been getting recognition the last few years. His signature dunk is the 720 dunk, but if The Air Up There is able to get this dunk down, he is sure to become the best dunker the world has ever seen. The fact that someone would even attempt this is scary.
Randy Moss Denies Battery Allegations January 17, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports, Video.
On Wednesday, Randy Moss had an informal press conference denying that he physically assulated a woman in Florida. Moss was doing a great job staying out of trouble and not bringing any distractions to the team, and this is by far the worse time to have distractions. After viewing the press conference however, I honestly believe Moss on this one.
5’9” Guy Does a 540 Dunk with 2 Hands January 16, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, Sports, Video.
The guy in the video below goes by the name of T-Dub. T-Dub stands only 5’9” but can do some amazing dunks, one of them being a 540 dunk with two hands. Some people call him the best dunker in the world.
