It looks like Adam Silver is making the All-Star weekend an All-Star Week, which I think is a good idea, if for nothing else to give players time to relax a little and allow the guys participating some time to relax.
I assume the dunk contest and skills challenge will still be saturday night, and the AS game on Sunday.... perhaps the rookie/sophomore game could be on Friday....
But what would you like to see added?
I personally would love to see a USA vs The World game, where American All-Stars take on global All-Stars (Parker, Manu, Dirk, ect). Or even just Eastern conference international players vs. Western conference international players. OR they could invite guy from Europe and Chinese leagues to face off against the NBA's international players.
I'd also like to see the retirees play. When I was younger there use to be a game where retired guys would play. I think Dr. J played in one game, but it'd be fun to see Ewing and Shaq and Drexler and guys like that suit up... even if it is for a short game, instead of throwing a couple of them into the celebrity game.
Maybe a one-on-one, two-on-two or three-on-three tournament?
What are your thoughts?
