Kevin Durant is having a pretty good weekend out in Phoenix. He put up a cool 46 points in the Rookie-Sophomore game, and after a slow start, he's taken TNT's first G-E-I-C-O/H-O-R-S-E crown. Here are the highlights and I'll share my thoughts on the otherside....
I don't know if it was the contestants involved, or the pace of the contest, but about halfway through I was hoping they would start randomly giving out letters. It was just too long, and extremely unimaginative on the shot selection end. The "in the stands" shot from Mayo and the deep corner one by Durant were pretty impressive, but the rest were just boring.
Maybe next year they should just change it to P-I-G. Or wait....sorry....J-I-F. Gotta have that sponsor.
(FYI- I should have the other competition's videos up shortly after they're done tonight. Actually, I'll probably combine the Skills and 3pt Shootout, and then do the Dunk Contest on its own.)
