I'm glad to see Angel McCoughtry get some recognition. So, did anyone see this? How was it?

P. S.: When Angel McCoughtry found out that Mario Lopez would be her assistant coach, this was her quote:

Are you serious? I still watch that show, I love to watch that show…I’m star-struck – I can’t even focus now. He had that little Jherri Curl back in the day, the little Hammer pants. That’ll be fun.

(Thanks to Swish Appeal for cluing us in.)

As an actual game, it was pretty farcical... of course. :)

Angel played some good ball, I thought... some pretty passes (to teammates who were totally not prepared to receive them), a few points... and a sloppy dunk attempt that was either half-hearted or ill-timed. Would have been SWEET if she'd made it.

All in all, I thought the WNBA was well represented. Lieberman not only started for the East celebs, but played a lot of minutes and had some nice moves for an old lady. ;)

Agreed about Lieberman -- watching her with the ball now really made me wish I could have watched her consistently in her prime. She has an outstanding feel for the game and it's amazing that it's still evident now playing with much younger players.

I don't think it's possible to overestimate her talent...
