During the intermission, international players representing different countries (Yao Ming, Luis Scola, Nowitzki, Gasol brothers) accepted acknowledgement from the spectators, and the US national team players each received a special ring from NBA.

That game was garbage, all the other players just want to score on Yao.

Yao didn't get the memo, they all let each other score, but Yao is out there playing defense and they're defending on Yao.

When Yao is out of the game, things run much smoother. It's just sad. Same thing every year.

China's popular rising star, actor Wang Baoqiang, a super fan of Yao Ming, impersonated as a reporter and asked Big Yao to autograph a basketball at the post-game press/media conference.

Well, another forgetable All Stars Game for Big Yao, except he witnessed the fade-out of NBA legend Michael Jordan in his first All Stars, now Shaquille O'Neal.....and had a chance to take a photo with another American legend, Muhammed Ali.

Lol, can't believe there were so many haters on here during the ASG.

We already know this game is not for Yao, I rather him pull a Karl Malone and sits out after 2 minutes. The big man needs to rest, after carrying this team for the season.

As far as Dwight goes, he's a freak of nature. The 11ft/12ft dunk last night was sick, he should've put that in the final round instead of the freethrow line dunk. And I wouldn't call the superman dunk last year a "layup", cuz the definition of the word "dunk" in terms of sports is "putting a basketball through the hoop forcefully in a downward motion". A "throw-in" would be more appropriate.

Speaking of foul line dunks, forget Mike Conley Sr, Wang Zhizhi won the CBA dunk contest in 2000 with a left hander from the foul line. So no, it's not as impressive if a big guy does it.

Back to Howard, he'll convince me that he's better than Yao IF he can outplay Yao when they go head to head.

too bad Yao Ming can't concede his spot in the All-Star game. It's a waste of roster spot since he only ends up playing an avg. of 10 minutes and scores only a bucket each time. The All-Star game should have the best entertaining players. Yao's not entertaining to watch. Mo Williams over Vince Carter? Nikka please. Coaches put too much emphasis on winning records. Yao will continue to be in All-Star games the next 10yrs, even if he plays at a Dikembe-like level.

shaq's "street dance" was with the jaberwokees, an asian american dance crew. most of the guys are korean, SE asian, jap or mixed but there are ethnic chinese on the crew (and a mexican). jaberwokees steal most of their moves from korean dance squads but that's okay cuz the white ppl in america have never seen those moves and dont know any better. what's funny is how small the mask is on shaq's big dumb head. those masks cover the entire heads of the asian kids

what are you bitching about yao for? the NBA ballers treat yao basically how he treats them. they're cordial to him but obviously not warm. they're not out to highlight him like they do their favorite players but that's to be expected. they've done far worse such as freezing Jordan out of the game etc

Thanks for the intepretation. If that was the case that means I've 'dunked' plenty of times in actual games during my basketball career. :lol:

Seriously the guy was only 3 ft away from the basket. If that counts as a dunk, then players should try and jump from the 3 point line and throw the ball in from 6-7ft away from the basket Howard style. That would be the most awesome 'dunk' of all time.
