    Default Our Players at the New Orleans Allstar This Year

    1) Jonas Valanciunas - Pretty disappointing game, got his shot blocked by Anthony Davis, seems like no one passes to him but he played ok, at least he got the start, runs alot as usual

    2) Terrence Ross - Could've done better but both him and McLemore look like they are overhyped for the game beside this year's slam dunk contest was boring. Freestyle, come on, I hope it gets back to the way it was before so some of the dunkers can have a 2nd chance to redeem themselves but the John Wall's dunk was sick and wicked and nasty

    3) DeMar DeRozan - 8pts
    Hey at least he did better than Chris Bosh when he was selected as a first time allstar. Keep it up DeMar, maybe one day he will be an Allstar MVP. What I Hate about this game: Players dont seem to pass to DeMar as both him and Millsap just jacking up shots after shots and DeMar need to attack the rim more, no highlights from this guy, hopefully next year but i will stop cheering him if he's not a Raptors by the end of the deadline or the offseason but decent game, at least the East won.

    Once again, a meh All-star weekend. The only reason I paid attention to it a bit more was because we had 3 Raptors in it. I'm just glad its over and we can get on with our playoff push.

    By far the MOST boring all star weekend I have watched all time. The rooks and sophs s
    Didn't care. The only thing fun on all-star Saturdays most fun thing was the three point contest. All star game was so boring cause they did bit play defence WHAT SO EVER. To make it fun for the fans the players need to take the weekend more seriously or else it is never going to be 'for the fans'

    Meaningless pick up game at best. Everyone was expecting a Lebron KD 1 on 1 but Lebron chickened out, Irving stole the show, and KD did his best Rudy Gay impression.

    I'm surprised how the OKC coach stuck with that lineup that failed to stop the comeback, with KD just chucking 3's. You could see everyone on the west bench was sad.

    I wish they would add some stipulation to make the game more competitive, like whichever conference wins gets homecourt advantage in the finals, like MLB. Now I think I know why they didn't pick Kyle Lowry. He might have drawn at least 5 charges on that game lol. Demar played ok though although I wished he took it to the hole more agressively, no props needed.

    The dunk contest format wasn't as bad although they left us fans hanging by ending it at the conference battle round. The 3 winners should have faced each other in a final battle to determine who's the best individual dunker, with the normal scoring.

    Rookie/sophomore game is overrated. Drummond did get MVP, but we all know that he's JV's bitch. Unless he develops a post game, he'll just be another Tyson Chandler or Deandre Jordan.

    And lastly, props to Drizzy Drake for being our Spike Lee/Jack Nicholson and proudly singing O Canada. I know he's hired, but I think this would just benefit the organization and the city's sports teams in the long run. Although I don't understand why the OVO 416 zone tickets cost $119.

    The freestyle round is a lose-lose situation. Even if there's a really nice dunk, the crowd doesn't get to react because the next guy has to go five seconds later.

    Example: I thought Lillard's lob between-the-legs dunk was easily the second best of the night, behind Wall's. Didn't really seem like nobody noticed though.

    I like the freestyle round idea because of how creative the players can be. But it really should just be a warmup to get the crowd into it. Or it could be the only deciding east vs west part of the contest, then individual dunking rounds afterwards to crown a champ

    Jv, I dont really mind about the performance he put up because nobody watched that game
    TRoss, would forever be our dunk champ <3
    Man, I dont give a SHIT what people say about DeMar because he made all of us hella proud
    so, I considered this all-star break a success

    How 'bout we all get back to the rest of the season.

    Im just happy that the Raptors and its players are receiving some positive press for once.
