Again, we're talking about The Perfect Storm of ghettofabulousness -- booze, babes, gambling, celebrities, a dunk contest and no such thing as last call.
Contrast that with this AOL Sports article, also by Whitlock, written yesterday.
The game is a sloppy, boring, half-hearted mess. The dunk contest is contrived and pointless. The celebrity contest is unintended comedy. And, worst of all, All-Star Weekend revelers have transformed the league's midseason exhibition into the new millennium Freaknik, an out-of-control street party that features gunplay, violence, non-stop weed smoke and general mayhem.
Read both of these articles. Whitlock changed his mind very quickly about the All Star game weekend.
