From the South Florida All-Star Classic (Team LeBron vs Team Wade game which took place a few days ago): Amare collects a dish from Chris Paul and makes a deposit on top of KD’s head…

I’ve found it awfully difficult to get really hyped up about all of these I’m-too-cool-to-play-defense-style scrimmages.  Despite all of the NBA talent that’s been present this summer, I just can’t seem to get into it.  That being said, I’ve enjoyed watching the highlight clips that these games provide for us.  We haven’t seen a whole lot of posterizations in these exhibitions because, well, like I said… everyone’s too cool to contest the dunk.  Windmills and alleys are cool, but a contested slam is certainly a welcomed change of pace.  It reminds me of the real thing.

Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale:

8/10 Starbury Nasty Faces.

Throwback Poster of the Day: Whoever first suggested that it would be a good idea to switch to the baseline camera every time a dude is about to finish a coast-to-coast drive needs to be slapped.
