A furious friend just left the following message on my Facebook page:

"Chris Kaman named to replace Brandon Roy in All-Star Game! WTF? This was Monta Ellis'(notes) last hope!"

Um, needless to say, I didn't have the heart to tell him this particular news wall-to-wall.

That's right; the young Golden State Warriors guard, known for his sick tunnel trick shots and over-the-backboard acrobatics, was surprisingly not asked to compete in this year's H-O-R-S-E competition, presented by Geico, as a part of the NBA's All-Star Weekend festivities.

Instead, according to a few Celtics' beat writers, Boston All-Star Rajon Rondo(notes) a.k.a. "The Clinic" and marketable Sacramento rookie Omri Casspi(notes) will join defending H-O-R-S-E champion Kevin Durant(notes) in the second annual event. This year's shot-making shoot-out raises the stakes, as the contest will be held on All-Star Saturday Night (at 7 p.m. ET) in front of a packed house in Dallas.

Pray Rondo's been workin' on those free throws.

Yay

hopefully it's not just putting up shots like last year, rondo may have been chosen because he can do tricks?

He has an entire country following his every move and has been one of the best rookies this year. He's a great shooter.

Rondo really should have been in the skills competition. Although rondo can do crazy things with the ball before the shot so he may have that to his advantage.

Omri and Reke and Brockman = Best Draft by far.

Plus Casspi has Paul Westphal, who was amazing at horse back in the day to give him pointers.

Israel, 1st Israeli to ever be drafted in the 1st round and play in the NBA. He's basically MJ to Israeli's.

Rondo probably will have some crafty layups.. but HORSE is not the game for him.

Durant easy... he is more athletic then both of them and Rondo can't hit a jumpshot to save his life.

You never know though since its h.o.r.s.e. but Durant should whipe the floor with them. Its interesting that last year they had KD, JJ, and OJ in front of like 50 fans haha and this year in front of 90000 million fans they get Omri and Rondo?? Serious??

I don't know where Kevin Durant learned the game of basketball...but it certainly wasn't streetball in New York City. Kevin's idea for a "horse" shot is a 3 pointer. Wow.

No left handed shots...no off the glass catch to yourself shot..no sitting down at half court or anywhere shots, just 3 pointers? I know he's the 2 time winner but you could get any 4 guys from ANY NYC park and it would have been a better show. I even remember the shots me and my friends came up with as a joke. The Michael Jackson leg kick BEFORE the shot which was funny as hell and had nothing to do with the actual shot...the bouncing of the ball off the ground into the basket ..etc .

PLEASE ..no more regular 3 point shots. If you're going to shoot a 3..do it with your left hand.

AHHH

A thread is back from the dead!

No, but seriously, KD was playing it safe I guess. I mean, he's confident knocking down those 3s and he played all the right cards to win it. Rondo was pesky and pretty damn impressive from beyond the arc but I don't think anyone would of bet against KD.

If this **** is in next year, they better choose a better field. Casspi? That was pathetic.

Just give me a player who can make trick shots since that's what HORSE is all about. More bank shots and maybe even a cartwheel before the shot. Anything ...Something...but please NO MORE REGULAR 3 Pointers.
