Starbury '09[edit]

This is a massive online initiative. This initiative is listed on numerous websites including the ones below, why can we not list this information on Wikipedia? Let's have a discussion.

RealGM, Knicksonline, DraftExpress, IGN, Hoops Vibe, NYPost, NYMag, NYDaily News. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.156.133.63 (talk) 07:05, 6 December 2008 (UTC)


RVV to last by russbot[edit]

Sorry that I didn't explain this in more detail in the edit summary.

There has been multiple valdalism on this page, so I reverted back to a version of the page from 12 OCT 2006. This has not been decided, at best, there is speculation regarding at least Toronto and Phoenix. At other places on Wikipedia, it is claimed to be gospel fact that Milwaukee will be hosting the 2009 All-star game, but I find that dubious, since I cannot find a supporting reference.

The claim that the game will be held in Milwaukee is completely false. (It may but nothing has been decided.) I do not think that this article should exist, let alone be linked, especially since the link does not contain the information in the statement.

Swimsuit Special[edit]

After the Rookie/Sophmore game The SI Swimsuit Issue 2009 special will air at 11:30pm easren time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cooly123 (talkcontribs) 16:06, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

The winner of the dunk contest...[edit]

...was Nate Robinson, not Dwight Howard. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.8.77.104 (talk) 04:20, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

I already changed it just when you posted that. -- Luke4545 (talk) 04:22, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
