In the midst of all this "Can we vote for Mark McGwire for the Hall of Fame?" business, we ask with metaphorically raised eyebrow: If an NBA cheerleader has had any work done, should she be allowed to be voted into the All-Star Game? (Just asking. We're not even that curious, actually.)
We ask because NBA.com has launched its Las Vegas Dance All-Star Team, which allows fans to vote on the most, uh, qualified dancer to represent her squad in Vegas this February. Each dancer has a 30-second video biography to educate the electorate, and, well, turns out there are pictures too.
This is Katherine, from the Raptors Dance Pak. Thumbing through the voting page, we will confess amusement at some of the dance troupe names. The Bucks dancers? "Energee!" NOOCH? "Honeybees." Indiana? "The Pacemates." We would have preferred "Pacemakers," but whatever.
(Thanks to the heads up on this from Randball, which is starting to veer toward the indispensable.)
