If you thought the Pelicans were going to ball out and be a good team after they got DeMarcus Cousins, well, not just YET as it is a work in progress. The Pelicans got straight blow out. First game after the All Star game and the Pelicans still celebrating the trade winner they got. 129-99, Houston Rockets won. Anthony Davis (29 points) and DeMarcus Cousins (27points) will get it together. Both players played well with dropping over 20 points. It is a team game and they need the other pieces to step up too. Give them some time to get the groove going on. This is more of progress and getting to know each other tendencies on the court.
The first game at the Smoothie King Arena was one to get better from. I know people thinking the New Orleans Pelicans will just be a good team all of a sudden. It doesn’t change over night. The Houston Rockets is a good team. James Harden, having an MVP season, leading his team right. You already know he was going to ball even if he doesn’t score a lot of points. He had a Double-double: 13 points and 14 assists. The whole Rockets team played well, especially newly acquired shooting guard Lou Williams. Willians who was from the Los Angeles Lakers. The baller. Auto-microwave making 7 of 11 3’s in his debut. That man can score a basketball. He had 27 points during the game.
The Pelicans will be getting better, so they are getting their chemistry together. I mean, I didn’t know how the two big man were going to play together. Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins looks like they are capable of balling together. The question is, does the coaching staff have to be able to capitalize on each of the star skills set and dominate? The coaching staff starts with the head coach, Alvin Gentry, so he has to formulate a plan for the team to succeed. The coaching staff will play a big role in the success of the New Orleans Pelicans. They got 20 plus games left, so we will see what they got with those games. New Team. Trusting each other. Basketball is back. Big Man. Basketball Night. 😀

The game begins with a standing ovation for the hometown hero New Orleans Pelicans and University Of Kentucky own Anthony Davis. Kevin Durant getting some no, so much love, LOL. The media making a big deal of Westbrook and Durant beef. Oklahoma Thunders’ Russell Westbrook doesn’t hold his feelings back as you all see. This will be a good game at the end of the fourth quarter if it is close. That is when they play the hardest. So lets see whose in and the West won last year in a blow out on Valentine’s Day 196-173 in Toronto, Canada. So lets see if the East wants to win this year. The West team looking like the squad to beat and East team looking all right.
The Nigerian Decent, Greece Native and Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo, getting in some vicious dunks. Dunks everywhere like too many dunks. You all slow down, LOL. Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry making threes like he normally does, though to switch the dunk flow up, major LOL. Everyone scoring in the first quarter. Everyone getting along (cough…cough..LOL). Kevin Durant to Russell Westbrook for a dunk. Lots of Dunks, though. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Anthony Davis lead the 1st quarter with 10 points, though. Russell Westbrook and Boston Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas going at it with a 3-point shooting battle. Am Still on that dunk by Giannis Antetokounmpo. The wind mill one. Oooooo
Lots of traveling going on, not good, LOL. Stop that 4 to 5 steps traveling. This isn’t a trip, LOL. You are only allowed 2 steps. High scoring game; lets see if one of the team get to 200 points and make history. Both team combine for history setting record 189 points and the half time. 97-92 West wining at the half. I see Giannis Antetokounmpo dropping his 26th point on Steph Curry’s forehead. Giannis had a rebound off Steph Curry and dunked over Steph Curry. Curry got a two hand dunk after he got dunk upon, LOL. Giannis Antetokounmpo’s family enjoying his dunks tonight and he is playing good; he has 28 points so far in his 1st All Star Game. He ended up with 30 points. That Greece Freak is long and athletic out of this world. Dropping Buckets.
Anthony Davis taking the show over with scoring the All time All Star Game point record with 44 points. Russell Westbrook got 41 points right now so he is going to break that record. Wilt Chamberlain had the record with 42 points and 24 rebounds in the 1962 All Star Game In St. Louis Arena. Boston Celtics’ Bob Pettit won the All Star Game MVP though in St. Louis Arena. Anthony Davis, the home town player, looks like he is going to win the NBA All Star MVP. Anthony Davis has 52 points right now in the All Star Game.New Orleans Pelicans. That’s what I thought, Anthony Davis won the 2017 NBA ALL STAR MVP in the Smoothie King Center on his home court. 192-182 West All Stars Won.
High Scoring game. NBA All Star. MVP. Brainy Versatility.
Skills Challenge contestant from New York Knicks, Kristaps Porzingis, the big man, won against Utah Jazz’s Gordon Hayward he guard. In the three-point Shooting Contest, Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson defending champion from last year didn’t shoot well to be in the championship round. Charlotte Hornets’ Kemba Walker, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving, Houston Rockets’ Eric Gordon are in the final round. The Rockets’ Eric Gordon should have won it in regulation making 20 3’s but tie breaker overtime with the Cavs’ Kyrie Irving who also made 20 3’s. Overtime round, Kyrie Irving, he made 18 three’s. Eric Gordon needs to be 19 to win and he went passed that to win the 3-point shooting contest. He finished it in overtime. Eric Gordon, the NBA JBL 3-point Shooting Contest Big Winner. Little entertainment before the Dunk Contest. It’s about to go down. Let’s get it. Creative about to be at it’s finest. NBA All Star Weekend Dunkster. Hype session. Speechless time. Dunk contest begins kind of starts off exciting. Let’s see who come up and win the Dunk Contest tonight.
I didn’t know Indiana Pacers’ Glenn Robinson III got ups like that. Glenn Robinson aka Big Dog ( Glenn Robinson Jr. or The III Dad and former NBA Player himself) sure didn’t have ups like that. Oooo! Where you got that from young fella? LOL. Favorite Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon not exciting. No looking like the favorite. Last year’s Dunk Winner, Minnesota Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine, taking time off after winning 2 years in a row. He got ups. I used to watch UCLA games when Zach LaVine was in college just to watch him play. Nice good player. Creative ups. This year’s Dunk Contest…hmmm…so-so. Some one about to make it exciting though, who is…Indiana Pacers’ Glenn Robinson III doing it, making it exciting. Derrick Jones Jr. from the Phoenix Suns doing some impressive dunks too.
Derrick Jones Jr. vs. Glenn Robinson III in the championship round. Glenn Robinson III is the Slam Dunk Champion. I knew he was going to win. It was an alright Dunk Contest. Verizon Slam Dunk Champion Glenn Robinson III. Like Glenn Robinson III said, his grandma said he was slept on, well, you all awake now! LOL. How does Glenn Robinson the 3rd got ups like this? I need me an NBA Trainer., for real, LOL. You all should see my face right now like am all BEWILDERED. All lost, LOL. He got some U P S, yikeees! The All Star Game was good in New Orleans.
