NO BRAINER

If you missed Thursday night’s infomercial for why Lance belongs in the All-Star Game, let us break it down for you: a career-high 28 points, 4 boards, 4 dimes, maybe a dozen shimmies (most of them during play), three wiggles, and one general sense that the best player on the court could pretty much do whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted.

Ballislife has the highlights, but we have to question the use of their question mark after “All-Star.” At this point, it’s not a question anymore; last night, Kevin Harlan called him “the talk of the NBA,” which of course made sense after his career night—oh, except Harlan said it two minutes into the game. At halftime, Charles Barkley called Lance “a no brainer” for the All-Star Game.
