Take the coming All-Star game. Elite players, or the crème de la crème, are starting to release comedic sketches on-line to get fan votes for the prestigious mid-season classic. Of course, fans vote in the starting line-up, while coaches vote in the reserves.

Take a look at Stoudemire’s All-Star game ad with coach Spade and get at us with thoughts in the comment box below.
