I don’t have the stats but I’ve got to believe he was in the 15 point, 10 rebound, 3 steal, 3+ assist region.
The east were a lot better than the west. It may be fatigue but it’s also just a matter of skill and physical ability.
The broadcast was really choppy on my end so it was hard to follow. There looks to be a good sized crowd (at least 85% full) who are really enjoying the game and are very vocal. They’re cheering both teams, but obviously are backing the East. The broadcast is the normal high quality ‘Heaves broadcast. I have been really impressed with the webcasts all season.
Crookshanks played really well and looked to be having fun. He played particularly good defense that led to some easy baskets and threw down some big dunks. Pretty much everything you can hope for in an all star game from Crookshank.
Jerome Abel of the San Diego Wildcats somehow managed to get a Technnical for saying something to the refs.
We learned from the announcers that Will Voigt used to break down film for the San Antonio Spurs… if Halifax somehow make it into the D-League we need to offer Voigt the head coaching job.
The announcers kept saying things like “It’s too bad we won’t be seeing Crookshank or any of his Rainmen teammates in Quebec. There are some internal problems with that organization.” Yeah – there are. There are in every sports team, particularly minor league teams. But the reason Halifax won’t be in Quebec City has nothing to do with those minor internal problems. It’s just aggravating that they keep getting it wrong.
