Dudes in the Shooting Stars Competition Next Year?

After watching the weird competition that teams an NBA player, a WNBA player and a legend from the same city, I think the Dudes should be invited to compete at the 2008 All-Star Game. I'm thinking we qualify because...

Joel = no-conscience gunner = NBA player
OR
Neal = lots of groupies = NBA player
PLUS
Vic = small Asian man = (roughly) WNBA player
PLUS
Nick = old guy = legend

Start practicing gentlemen...

I had to record the whole thing but got home and zoomed through that competition. Scottie Pippen irritates me and I didn't want to watch. It almost seems fated now that the Spurs will sign him.

But I was glad to see Damon Jones fall flat in the shootout. Gilbert Arenas too.

Btw, am I the only one who loved watching all two hours of the "pregame" show? Is there anything better than watching EJ, Kenny, and Charles parked outside Caesars?

make no mistake about it - the charles barkley - dick bavetta race was the highlight of the evening... i was playing poker with some of my boys, and one of them offered a 5 to 1 odds (he was taking bavetta) when Charles walked out in that shirt and they announced that the race would be 3 1/2 trips down the court...

i should have taken that bet...

pretty classless of chuckster to run backwards for the final stretch i'd say

I thought the running backwards was fantastic, if only because it led to Bavetta diving and Barkley tripping over himself. And did no one notice Bavetta's knee bleeding during the interview? With each passing moment, it threatened to run all the way to the ground!

Diane actually stopped bathing Beth - who had spit up all over herself during the Skills Competition - to watch the Bavetta-Barkley race, so you know that's good entertainment.
