Homerism setting in and voting for Moon.

BTW, seeing how we're are the ones that vote for the winner, are votes being counted world wide or is this just gonna be a stupid Americans only vote?

I think it will be world wide..which will mean Yao will win.

I went with Dwight...just cause the NBA will rig it to help him build his superstar status.

i'm betting on Gay.
the guy is on the verge of breaking out into being a household name (he's putting together a fabulous year), and the NBA will want this "clean-cut, good looking guy" as a star in this league.
so they will push for him.

plus he has the hops to throw down some serious dunks.

also, he has the swagger that moon lacks.
and style and swagger count for 50% of this event.

moon has the showman advantage - he's my favorite. Many fans will vote the player they like though, so Moon will be at a disadvantage there.

I think Moon will also get the underdog vote and the benefit of enthusiastic Raptor fans.

i know its juvenile, but do u think having the last name "Gay" will hurt his jersey sales? (sorry for the off topic question)

man i can't wait for this contest.

I'd say the days of the dunk contest being a bore are done for me. The hype of it all is definately working. and of course it helps that one of our Raptors is participating.

My heart says it'll be Moon, but stupid fan voting makes me think it'll be Howard.

If anything Moon will have to really pull out all the stops and impress much more than anyone else to win it.

BTW... all star weekend, and then FAmily day on Monday. can't wait to get out of work on friday. woo hoo!

What time does it start Saturday night? I'm out of town on Saturday to record, but hopefully I'll be home in time. I'm already missing the game Sunday because of a gig.

Just tape it. or PVR it.

I'm taping pretty much the whole thing on my good old VCR.

probably won't watch any of the festivities live as the wife and usually are social on weekends.

The dunk contest itself usually starts at like 10 or 1015 I think. Lots of fucking commercials in these events.

Dunk contest hasnt been good since some young upstart named Vince Carter took the league by storm....

I think this one will be OK, i dont see these guys doing anything that hasnt been done b4, and even tho i like seeing a raptor in it, im not hyped, with all that ill pick Spud Webb
