After they were retired, Kareem and Dr J went one one in 1992 at all star weekend.

You think it could work now? Where guys like CP3 vs Deron could go head to head?

Because players have huge egos and wouldn't want to lose to a "lesser" player.

I suggest something like a Legends vs Fans game, with the fans getting one current NBA Player(a Rookie).

I would loveeeeeeee both. Esp 1 on 1.

I doubt players would want to take the risk though.

Would be better than that skills challenge BS.

What about the HORSE game? What happened with that?

I think it was mostly the fact that it was lame. lol

I think that 1v1 would be a great idea, but i'm sure due to the length of time they would need it would be too much for it to be a competition. Perhaps just two fan voted players to play each other would work well :up:

Horse would be a better choice, however it may discriminate between shooters, dunkers, and bigs based on stuff they can do. Perhaps it can simply be a guards challenge like the "skills challenge" then it would work.

1 on 1 would be awesome imo.

I'm sure that if the NBA players were to play horse, you would need all three skills. Passing it off the backboard at least.

Dunk champions would take the cake in these competitions as for 3-point shooters may miss at times imo.

1 on 1 or 21 would be too high injury risk

wow 1 on 1 would be wonderful but not too realistic because of the egos of the players involved. But if the monetary prize is high enough, i'm sure the stars would participate

1v1 is an awesome idea! cant beleive that never crossed my mind. I would honestly be down to just take out the entire all star game ******** and have the most anticipated 1v1 match.

only thing is we KNOW Lebron would run as fast as he can away from this event.....

id like this idea. like a 1v1 tourny!

If there is one on one, do you have refs or do you call your own calls?

I would think the 1 on 1 game would just be a game of all jumpshots but I'd still like to see it, only with partcipants of the all star game, not just some player that leads the league in charges taken or something

1 on 1 tournament bout 16 players first to 11 or 21... that would be hot

To avoid the inevitable ego clashing that would keep most marquee players away from a one v one tourney, they could just do 2 v. 2. Get one regular official - make it a 4 team (8 player) tourney where two east and two west teams play eachother first, then the two winners play in the final. Game to 15 with 2's and 1's. It would be fun if they didn't have to be on the same team, either (just same conference).

Kobe and Blake Griffin versus Lebron and Amare in a potential 2 v. 2 finals? It would be the most anticipated event at the All-Star game.

edit:
Mike James vs Monta Ellis... 1 on 1

Be there or be square... haha
Not to be a sour puss, but definitely not getting the replacement of Mike James with Monta on PSD thing. Mike James = ultra cocky underachiever, while Monta's this humble/extremely solid player who just goes about his business. Chucks on occasion, but he's actually an efficient scorer. Just kind of an odd choice to me.

Instead of fan voting and put pressure on the player to participate 1 on 1, it's better to do it with invitation, and let players decide if they want to play.

I'm sure some young bucks will want to make names for themselves, and the fans can still enjoy the show without big names.

**** that ***** ego ******** its more of an ego hit for people to say no to honest competition....i think a 1 v 1 tournament would be sick to watch and they could do it through out the night during the skills comps....im thinking keep it reserved to guards and small forwards because no one wants to watch people backing each other down for 21 points...but it would be sick because you could have the fans vote from a pool to see who will play who...pgs v pgs...sgs v sgs...and forwards v forwards...imagine being able to watch durant play lebron one on one or blake playing lebron....chris paul versus derrick rose...rondo versus deron...kobe vs wade... that would be so much fun to watch...


they could even have it set up where the winning east point guard shooting guard and forward play against the west winners

CP3 vs DWill

Lebron vs Melo

Kobe vs Wade

Durant vs Griffin

Amar'e vs Bosh

Rose vs Westbrook

Howard vs Dirk

Pierce vs Joe Johnson

Yeah, but you think someone wants to get embarassed? Whoever won would be considered the better player always.

The NBA should consider doing a Legends game. There were a bunch in the celebrity game.
