Chris has an impressive resume: we met him on the RideOn, he was driving it, and he gave us his business card and it said on it:

We were very impressed!

Here are Chris' ideas for new All Star Events:

Limo Shoot Off
Round I - Pairs of NBAers try to shoot bottles of Cristal off heads of Eastern European limo drivers lined up at half court
Round II - In separate, sound-proof booths, each team member has one minute to give their version of what happened in Round I. Answers compared by host city police for discrepancies in time line, etc... Plaxico Burress, Mark Furman and Phil Spector are celebrity judges.

EuroZone Stars of Tomorrow
Five-minute exhibition scrimmmage featuring 10 top Eastern European 17 year-olds. All 10 play offense simultaneously, no defense.

Free Agent Limbo Contest, by
In a crossover promotion with MLB and Priceline, Manny Ramirez and Stephon Marbury have a limbo-off, while fans text in bids for their services, starting with "Stephon Marbury can paint my house for $300."

Chris Gatlin Salary Cap Number Retired
To teach the newest generation of NBA fans about the struggles of the early days of the salary cap system, the All-Star weekend will honor Chris Gatlin. Without Gatlin's salary, perfectly sized to level up the cap hits of swapping starting players, no trade would have been possible in the NBA from 1993 to 2001. His record of playing for 38 NBA franchises in 1998, including both sides of Game 3 of the Nets-Heat playoff series after a rare half-time trade, will likely never be broken. His cap number of $822,467.83/remaining games in the season will be retired.
