On this weeks episode of Talking Raptors, Nick and Barry are on the road again. The guys discuss all the exciting and not so exciting things at All-Star Weekend. They break out a very classy (8 dollar twist-cap) bottle of wine and share their thoughts on:

-The Skills Challenge… is it fun for anyone?

-The 3 Point Contest and how awesome the Money Ball rack is.

-The Slam Dunk Contest and how it was a pretty big disappointment this year.

-The All-Star Game being one of the best they’ve seen in quite some time.

-How Jonas, Terrance, and Demar fair throughout the weekend.

-Drake and whether or not he represented us well during the festivities.

It’s a fun episode and some interesting and peculiar events take place.

    I have an idea that I think would make the skills challenge better… Have the players perform their best crossover on the dummies/pylons, and have judges score it, combine that with a scoring bonus for time and scoring deductions for missed passes/shots… If you get the guys busting out sick crossovers, it would get the players more interested in showcasing their skills and would be a lot more entertaining for the fans
