Dwight does solid job as coach of sophomores

As assistant coach, Dwight Howard led the sophomores to a win over the rookies in the most exciting rookie-sophomore game in recent memory. Kevin Durant went off for 46 points. The telecast was a basically a 2-hour LeBron James and Pau Gasol interview – King James and Gasol were guest commentators – but Dwight got plenty of facetime as the sophomore’s celebrity coach. He and Dwyane Wade, the coach of the rookies, announced the lineups before the game, which was pretty funny. Besides that, Dwight was just shown laughing and coaching on the bench. There was plenty of starpower on Friday night, but it’s not going to compare to Saturday night. By the way, who is in the crowd at the all-star games? I have never heard a more enthusiastic group of people. I think they invited 20,000 Price is Right contestants.
