Clash of the Superstars Recap

wall918

This is John Wall crossing the **** out of Bobby Maze…all too familiar, right?

I now declare today ‘day of the recaps’.  Last night at Coolidge High in D.C., a group of NBA superstars took the court again in another showcase game.  The Clash of the Superstars featured John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Jeff Green, Kevin Durant, Greg Monroe, Michael Beasley, and Kemba Walker.  Bobby Maze also took part in the event, but they made him wear an asterisk on his jersey to let everyone know that he was certainly not a ‘superstar’, and merely a Honda.

Wall and Cousins were on the same team and won 144-128.  John dropped in a cool 40 points.  The kid is unstoppable this summer, and long with Cousins, proving they are going to be stars in the NBA for many years to come…so long as this lockout finally gets dealt with.  Having Durant on their team probably helped some.  This summer has been an excited yet disappointing time for the world’s best basketball players.  They are fighting the lockout, hoping to have a season, but getting the opportunity to play around the country in different formats/games that otherwise wouldn’t have happened without the work stoppage.  Wall had this to say about the summers oddities:

“I just want to play basketball. That’s why you see me out here,”

“I’m ready for them to get [the lockout] over with so they can see us play during the season.”

You’ll notice on the back of the jersey the phrase “BBneverstops” is stenciled in, and the front reads, “BBNS“.  The NBA guys have adopted their mantra during the lockout in hopes to inspire the two sides to come together in agreement.  Billy Hunter and Derek Fisher are hard at work, but the most recent meetings have not proven to be fruitful.

The article linked above discusses getting the major faces of the NBA in Kobe and LeBron to be more vocal and active in trying to get a deal done.  John Wall said this on the ordeal:

“I think we’re going to have to have guys like Kobe [Bryant], LeBron, the face of the NBA, to step up and say something,” said Wall.

Next stop for many stars is back to the Impact League going on in Las Vegas.

    Yeah he looks unstoppable when no one is trying to stop him. Not so much when the world power DR team is on the floor. I know it was an exhibition, so he didn’t play hard I guess, but it was an exhibition for both teams, so that doesn’t hold much weight. John needs to learn the game and worry less about his mix tapes.

    as much as i love the SEC, and i love uk being in the SEC. With all these basketball powerhouse teams moving to the ACC, what if we went to the acc? Duke, UNC, UConn, Pitt, Cuse, and UK?

    FOOTBALL QUESTION: I’ve asked this a couple times and haven’t gotten a response. Maybe I’m showing my ignorance here, but if Robinson “fumbled” the ball, that implies that he had possession. He was beyond the first down marker. If he had possession beyond the first down marker why did we not get fresh downs??? Somebody please clear this up for me.

    7) They were last week, except for John. Also, PPat hasn’t been back at all. Weaksauce.

    Look, instead of worrying about who else will join the SEC, why don’t we leave and join the Big East? It is more of a bball conference, we put our football team where it belongs, and we get to play Cincy, WV, Loserville every year. IF the SEC wants to be a football conference, then we should leave, because UK will never EVER be a football school.
