All-Access Pass for Lakers Nation to All-Star Saturday Night

My favorite part of the three-point shootout was that, no matter who won, there was a 100% chance that a Boston Celtic was going to lose that night. Eagerly awaiting the moment when Paul Pierce would either a) hit 20 points during a round a proceed to center court to take bows while being showered with boos from everyone from his hometown of Inglewood, Calif.; or b) the moment he would mildly sprain his knee/ankle/finger/[insert any body part here] during the event and require a foaming Kevin Garnett to carry him to the locker room, while he yelped in “pain.”

Unfortunately, neither of those things happens, but something even better did: BOTH CELTICS IN THE COMPETITION LOST. Yeah, it was to a member of the Miami Heat (James Jones), but at this point, what do you think Laker fans enjoy more, watching Paul Pierce and Ray Allen leave Los Angeles as losers, or watch James Jones win the three-point shootout? I’m going with the former, and I think most of Los Angeles would agree with that.


Now, with the Celtics crying and the STAPLES Center crowd cheering, it was time for the event everyone (especially Daniel Buerge) had been waiting for: Far East Movement’s special performance!
