Top 10 NBA All Star Game Takeaways

10) It was good that Orlando didn't deal Dwight Howard before this game, because that would have somehow ruined something that doesn't matter enough to ruin

9) There is no doubt now that shooting three pointers is officially cooler than dunking, at least to the NBA's real stars

8) TNT's on-court microphones picked up Howard actually caring about defense, which is just kind of odd, really

7) Even in games that don't matter, Blake Griffin can't shoot free throws

6) If you are wondering why the West had a big lead until late, you need look no further than the idea that the East had 2 guys from the below .500 Celtics make the team and combine to shoot 2 for 11 (yes, seriously, 2 for 11 in an All-Star Game)

5) The teams combined to set a new All-Star Game record for three pointers made, and the fewest number of them defended

4) The sooner the game was over, the faster we got to stop looking at those god-awful uniforms

3) As always, the last five minutes were mildly interesting and resembled an actual game

2) Actual timeouts were called in the final minute, like it mattered who won and lost

1) Deron Williams, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James all choked in the final seconds, so everyone went home happy
