Two Shucks of a Ladder
One last stab at FreeDarko All-Star Coverage. Maybe no one liked my theory that the Suns have made the All-Star Game into something legitimate. To which I would say, sometimes Doug Collins is wiser than he knows. And in retrospect, my point about Howard's burden was less than startling.
Nevertheless, please lend your fondest, softest ears to the wily Nathaniel Friedman's Chicago Sports Review piece on the Dunk Contest's self-image. Not surprisingly, he was completely and totally correct about what would happen. And yet from what he's told me, this soothsaying is about as trampled as God's watchful arms. Shibboleth.
