Question No H-O-R-S-E contest this year???

i went on the all star page on nba.com 2day, and i just realized that the only event missing from last years All star weekend is the H-O-R-S-E contest. I personally couldnt care much if it took place or not, because in my opinion the horse contest is the 2nd most boring event , 1st being the haier shooting stars , but still wtf? After 2 years they already decided to scrap the thing??? it doesnt make sense at all. why isnt it there?

cause it sucked. Why push something that doesn't generate excitement? Smart move to move on from it.

Horse is Ok. But it could call different. Like B-I-T-C-H.

Because it wasn't HORSE. Johnson, OJ, and Durant started suckin', got lazy, and just started chuckin' 3's from all over the place. That's not innovative, that's boring.

I completely agree with what you are all saying. it is boring. But IMO the haier shooting stars is even worse- its just a bunch of ppl takin shots. At least with horse they can do different kind of shots, instead of a 3-pointers and a maybe a fancy layup. Why would they keep the haier b4 the horse?

The Shooting stars gets to bring back the legends of old and doesn't take so long.

Horse was so bad that at the end they force Durant and Rondo to take 3's from the top of the center just to end it.

Sadly, that was the high point of the whole weekend.

Well not all of them are legends but David Robinson and Magic Johnson did it off the top of my head.

It's dumb. Last year's HORSE turned into a shooting competition, so they could switch the TV coverage to the actual All-Star events.
