The Sixers recent nosedive has left my interest level in the All-Star festivities beginning tonight at 9pm with the Rising Stars Challenge hovering somewhere around Olympic Female Gymnastic levels. I'll watch, because nothing else is on, and I'm sure I'll wind up enjoying it despite myself. Game thread? Why not.
Evan Turner is on team Chuck, along with DeMarcus Cousins, Kyrie Irving and others. Considering Team Shaq doesn't really have a legit small forward, and no one plays defense in these games, it could be fun to watch Turner break free of his shackles and show off some fancy dribbling.
The tip is at 9pm. This is your obligatory game thread. I'll be here for parts of it, join me if you're really looking forward to people putting too much stock into what Evan Turner does in a meaningless game, good or bad.
