not a surprise. I heard it was only 9 players per team so it was pretty obvious to me. Plus he already had the halftime gig.

very small roster btw, no really big guys I mean.

A positive about this, is that Eric Gordan will be tired while playing in the game and Demar can go all out on him during the dunk off.

Derozan will still have a chance to steal the show in the dunk-in.

Come to think of it, Demar can really solidify his name around the league during all star weekend

Another blow-out for the Sophs - Maybe the NBA should re-think the format? I guess it doesn't matter.

The Rookies have beaten the Sophmores on a couple of occasions. I know one was in 2002 - that rookie team was pretty good..and the sophmore team was pretty bad. I know there was one other occasion, but I cant remember.

I know he has been improving the last couple of weeks, but the guy can't even crack the Top 9 rookies after being given the starting position and playing time of over 21 minutes. From the rookie class, there are only 3 potential all-stars (Tyreke Evans, Jennings, Blake Griffin).

Um.

Derozan just tore his ankle.

He ain't in a slam dunk anything. He's in fact, in crutches.

Michael Olowokandi was a #1 pick too...

Wonder how life in the all-star lane turned out for him...

So your going to compare Michael Olowokandi to Blake Griffin. Nice. Blake Griffin is going to be an NBA star. He got a great attitude & worth ethic and all the athletic ability in the world.
