I just watched the whole thing again. I mean, Nate Robinson was exciting. And he's a short dude. But we really should look at the overall picture. Howard should've won becasue he was making his dunks all night. I'm convinced that if he had saved that 12-foot dunk for last, he would've won. Let's face it, Americans are stupid and forgetful. You let them vote in the last round and that's all they'll think about. They'll forget that Howard had a perfect 100 coming into the final round. All they'll see is: little dude dunking over a big dude vs. stepping over the free-throw line on a dunk that's been done before. Yes, in that round Robinson was more exciting. But to call him the champion is dumb.
It's like the Homerun Derby when we throw out the totals after each round. If a guy hits 30 homeruns in round one, that should mean something for round two. I know sports don't work this way and that we're used to canceling out regular season once we get to the post-season. But this shouldn't really be the case in man vs. man competitions. Could you see if golf events had cuts after Saturday and then the scores started over on Sunday? That's ridiculous.
Either way, like I said, I like Howard even more now.
And side note: I did play a game of Hoops on NES and got killed 10-2. I hadn't played this game since I was in Florida for Spring Break in 7th grade. I need practice.
Going to cook breakfast...
