My Predictions For Tonight
Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans #LetJeremyDunk
Why did I pick Jeremy? Because he barely plays and I’m sure he’ll be well rested. Just Kidding. I saw the videos he posted trying to get into the contest and he looks to have some skills.
3 Point Contest: Anthony Morrow
I’m not picking him just because he’s on the Nets (My favorite team) I think he has the perfect shot to win it. If he is hot early there is no chance he loses. Plus he’ll be paying tribute to Net legend Drazen Petrovic by wearing his number 3. How cool is that!
Skills Competition: Deron Williams
“Here’s looking at you Dwight” Where Brooklyn at?
Well that’s it for me. Enjoy the festivities!
