  • I watched the least amount of NBA All-Star weekend than I ever have in my entire life this year. Shit, I fell asleep at halftime of the game itself, which I never do. It’s just become so uninteresting the past few years, and disappointing.

    Even after reading about last night’s ending, I’m still not too upset about missing the second half since I at least got to see Jrue Holiday throw down a nice dunk.
