Where has the excitement of the NBA All-Star game gone?

Either last night’s game went by way too fast or the NBA All-Star game has lost it’s swagger. The 2012 NBA All-Star game had all of the stars, but none of the star power.

Well, we were hoping the unthinkable wouldn’t happen but it did. The Illinois Fighting Illini football program completed one of it’s worst seasons in school history. They started the season 6-0 with high hopes and a lot of promise. But they finished the season 0-6, their worst losing streak since the 2006 season when they lost 7 in a row.

Are you jolly?  Do you have “back?”  Are you a dude?  Are you able to “perform on demand”?  Get your mind out of the gutter.  Ahem.  The NBA’s “Billionaires fighting with millionaires over money” (as Derrick Rose said) notwithstanding, there may yet be a pro basketball season this (or next year).  We’d all better be prepared. The Chicago Bulls...
