We know, we know, the All-Star Weekend is not actually the halfway point in the NBA season. But it is when everyone takes a break to look back and see what went right and what went wrong for teams around the league. We are a little late with our review since the action on the court is going again, but things get in the way and a good idea can’t always get out on time. So please overlook that and enjoy as we reuse and recycle some of our favourite Photoshopped movie posters to feature seven films that stood out before everyone hit Phoenix for All-Star Weekend.

1. Being Il Muggo

Andrea Bargnani finally showed some signs of life and why the Toronto Raptors picked him first overall a few years back. Will it keep up? It better now the JO is gone.

2. Wall Street

.

LeBron and New York make great drama. Whether it is talk of 2010 or LBJ and his mystery triple-double, this movie is certainly not over yet.

3. The Hand That Rocked the Cradle

Not even a broken hand could slow down the Denver Nuggets. This could of been a chance for the Blazers in the NorthEast but in the end it was just a small bump in the road for Denver.

4. Resurrecting Bulls

Chicago is far from the glory days of Jordan and Pippen but with Derrick Rose leading the team, fans can once again picture it. This kid has skills and the movie spotlight will be on him for many years.

5. Cambyman

A real horror movie, enough said.

6. The Philadelphia Experiment

Please read #5. This has not worked out at all. Sorry to ruin the ending.

7. BC

We are a Raptors blog after all so pardon us for being a little bias. Bryan Colangelo and George W. Bush are starting to have more in common as the weeks go by. We are losing faith in BC and we hope this movie ends with a resigned Bosh and a budding star on the wing. Oh and a new head coach would be great as well.

There are so many other movies that made headlines during the first half but these are seven that stood out for us (and we had posters done already for).

Hey sometimes you need a break and using old content really does the trick.

Before we leave you, how about one book that was a good read during the first part of the NBA calendar.

Have a good one, come back for more soon.
