Finally the stars have aligned for the NBA’s signature weekend. The All-Stars are obviously a talented bunch, but their intelligence as individuals is often overlooked. With all of the speculation and “Melodrama” the rest of All-Stars are trying to go through the weekend unnoticed. Many of them make mention to how they just follow behind Carmelo so that way they will not be bothered, and if they are bothered it is usually in reference to Carmelo anyway. It has been a rainy weekend here in Los Angeles and the speculation surrounding Anthony continues to put a damper on what is supposed to be a fun and exciting time for everybody. That includes the players as well. While I will not hide behind my laptop and pretend that I am not interested in where the shoe will eventually drop, I am tired of the wrong reports, guess work, and attempts at media scoops by some of our nationally known media outlets. Enough is enough. It is All-Star weekend and no offense to Carmelo but the weekend itself is bigger than him or his future destination. The trade deadline is Thursday so it should all come to end soon. Here is a look at some of the clips from the NBA All-Star practice and yes it includes Carmelo (still have to do my job you know). Click on the links below for the video footage.
