Notes from TNT’s Coverage of NBA All-Star 2010 – Saturday, February 13, 2010: Lil’ Nate Wins His 3rd Dunk Title

TNT’s exclusive coverage of the 2010 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, February 14 begins at 7 p.m. (ET). I’m sure the NBA will once again have to deal with ridiculous scrutiny because the night didn’t meet “expectations”. So what.

Of course, but the NBA All Star Weekend is still the best of it’s kind in sports and last night shouldn’t matter in the long run. Just tinker with it a little bit.

Crazy seeing people in the background of camera shots that I deal with on a weekly basis. Shout out!

I was wrong in every one of my predictions (Rondo for HORSE, Brandon Jennings for Skills, Daequan Cook for 3pt shootout and Shannon Brown for Dunk contest). Hope ya made out better.
