Ah yes, return to civilization. Internet is alive and well in my spacious, slightly asbestos-ridden Columbia manor (or townhouse, depending on your sense of humor), and as such, it's time to get back to posting. Good thing basketball is in full swing.
For the second time in seven seasons, Houston will play host to the best of the NBA's best as the 2013 All-Star Weekend was awarded to the Rockets earlier today.
The news speaks for itself. Assuming Nate Robinson is barred from the dunk contest (let's face it: his inclusion is basically the equivalent of throwing Shaq in the three-point shootout), I'm stoked. As SB Nation Houston editor David Coleman notes, should this upcoming season be canceled, Houston will play host to the first post-lockout All-Star game. Neat.
I'm a little surprised the league decided to come back to its starless city so soon. Perhaps it was just an accident.
