With All-Star Weekend upon us, I thought it would be fun to have a contest of sorts for the weekend and to keep things mildly more interesting for those who could care less or won't watch.
The Contest is a simple prediction contest, guessing the winners of the Rookie-Sophomore Game, All-Star Game, the Slam Dunk-in, H.O.R.S.E., the Shooting Stars Competition, the skills competition, the 3-Point contest, the Slam Dunk contest and the MVPs for both the Rookie-Soph game and the All-Star Game.
The Person who gets the most correctly shall be declared the Winner and I will personally buy a pair of $10 Kings tickets as the prize for the winner to a Kings home game of their choice.
Bonus: If anyone can run the gauntlet and get everything right, I'll throw in an StR shirt as well. If the Winner lives out of the country, this will be the prize instead of the tickets.
