    Sticking to my prediction that Houston is going to find a way into the Finals and Harden is going to shrink under the pressure against LeBron. Lights were on last night and he turned into who he always has in big moments... a disappointment.

    The Rockets are the most high scoring boring team ever constructed. Harden is miserable to watch. Dribble, dribble, dribble, step back jumper; or, dribble, dribble, dribble, Harden flops and goes to the line.

    I read an article about an aspect of the game that I hadn’t thought about that makes sense. They had the player’s names on the teams and that added in a new sense of self pride to the game. Neither LeBron or Steph wanted to lose that game. Has anyone seen the pictures and videos of Steph after the game? He was HEATED. I can’t wait for the rematch next year.

    I don't have a problem with the new set up if it benefits the game. I would be shocked if we didn't see the selection televised, I would love to see it occur right before tip off but that won't happen since they need to some team time beforehand.

    I did have a problem with my brain's ability to follow. I didn't watch the entire game but once it got down to the stretch it worked out my brain trying to figure out which players were on Lebron's vs Steph's. The set up with conferences is much easier for me to follow.

    OK, so next year to make it even more personal and easier for fans to follow, put LeBron All Stars and Steph All Stars on the jerseys.

    I knew and could tell who was playing for which teams.

    I think Durant is the rightful captain of Team 2.

    Butler did Lou Will and Simmons wrong, even though he is most definitely an All Star.

    Kinda surprised the referees didn’t take a look at the out of bounds call.

    Enjoyable finale to a pretty good All Star weekend.

    I too was disappointed in Butler. He could have logged five or six easy minutes each half, regardless if Thibs is running the TWolves into the ground and have played more games than anyone.
