Work in Progress

Baseball, Seminary, Wrestling, and the Dreams and Days of one Mike Work's Angeles experience

In a few days, Amare Stoudamire, Josh Smith, JR Smith, and Chris Anderson will attempt to join such luminaries as Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins, Vince Carter, Kobe Bryant, and Harold Minor, as they compete in the Sprite Rising Stars Slam Dunk Challenge. Word is, they'll be competing for a grand total o $60,000 in prize money, but nobody's told me if the winner will be getting a trophy or a plaque as well.

I vote trophy, for all those interested. As to the reasons, I cite the possibility of smashing an adversary's trophy over their back, which can't really be done with a plaque. Such a dastardly deed could kick-start a heated feud between the Hawks and Hornets, which could bang the ratings...
