Video interview with Steph Curry on All-Star Weekend, John Wall and Degree “Battle of the Game Changers”

Stephen Curry and John Wall had a heated Twitter exchange last week, leading to a showdown on Saturday, February 14th, during NBA All-Star Practice where Curry and Wall will go shot-for-shot in the Degree Battle of the Game Changers.

We spoke to Steph about his career, how to shoot 90% from the free throw line and how to impress babes by slathering your entire body in Degree DrySpray.

Fans will help play a role in determining who is crowned the Ultimate Game Changer by voting on one of the shots the two All-Stars will attempt in the battle

Starting Monday, February 9 fans can vote at Twitter.com/DegreeMen.

While Curry and Wall are sinking shots on the court, they’ll be protected by the new game changing Degree Dry Spray Antiperspirant, the new way to get superior protection. It goes on instantly dry for a cleaner feel without visible residue.

Using the Degree signature MOTIONSENSE Technology, Dry Spray provides the superior 48-hour odor and wetness protection that these competitors will need throughout NBA All-Star Weekend.

The 2010 NBA All-Star Game – Brave New World or The Empire Strikes Back ?

DALLAS – So there I was last Friday afternoon in Austin, Texas, a little over 48 hours before the historic 2010 NBA All-Star game would take place just 200 miles away in Dallas. Somewhere around 100,000 tickets were said to be sold, including an unquantified number of $30 Standing Room Only “party passes.” The Great Recession of 2009 had left me nearly flat broke when they went on sale last year though, so I remained ticketless and with little hope. Then I read an interview with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, where he seemed to up the ante on what this event could be.

I don’t think Cowboys Stadium has really been leveraged as a party destination the way it can. I think people are going to be pleasantly shocked. It’s more designed to be a night club than a destination for a sporting event. And because this is really geared toward fun, I think it’s really going to shine,” Cuban told the Dallas Morning News. “You’re just there to have fun. I think that makes a big difference. No one’s betting on this game. No one’s screaming and yelling. It’s just ‘Are you having fun? Yes or no.’ That makes for better people-watching. That makes for better enjoying of libations and such. It’ll be a lot of fun.”

Cuban was probably engaging in a hype game, but all this talk of unprecedented, newly leveraged fun seemed to demand personal investigation. I hit the Dallas and Austin Craigslist ticket boards, trying to find someone who might unexpectedly have found themselves with a couple of those party passes to sell for face price. Most were asking around $60 apiece, while some pirates sought $100. Then I saw a posting that more of the party passes were now on sale at Ticketmaster.com – one click later, he shoots, he scores! I knew prospects for getting a decent view of the game were slim, but how could any serious NBA fan pass up the chance to attend this historic contest for a mere $30 and a three-hour drive? Not to mention that a California friend had just relocated to Dallas that week for a new job, providing free lodging to boot. It had clearly become a mission from God.

2010 NBA All-Star Game Highlights

Here’s a six-minute mash-up of all the big highlights from the 2010 All-Star Game.

Couch Potato Alert: 2/27

Damn you, Tim Clark!

Thanks for ruining the weekend of all hack golfers in the world by defeating golf’s stimulus plan, Tiger Woods, on Thursday. We (I confess that I am a hack golfer) live vicariously through every one of his great shots from the fairway that land smoothly a foot away from the pin on the green. Now, we have to hope for another Phil Mickelson meltdown to bring our attention back to the Accenture Match Play Championship. Hopefully, Shaq will reprise his introduction dance from the All-Star Game before Sunday’s nationally-televised game against the Lakers. I mean the Big Shaqtus can really move on the dance floor.
