Here is your open thread for All-Star weekend so as not to spam other threads. We don't have any plans for a regular metathread to use as an out of topic discussion forum since, after all, this is a sports site about the Houston Rockets and all, but the All-Star game is a big break in action and the Houston Rockets aren't competing right now. Some tweets and rumors for filler and y'all have fun now, ya hear?

He can't turn it off. He finished the game with 14 points and 6 boards.
