View Full Version : Remember when NBA players actually played defense in all star games?

I was watching old Iverson footage and stumbled across this 2005 all star game.


Look at how much guys are trying on defense? Pretty much every shot contested. Guys actually competing! What a concept. When did NBA players decide that defense was going to be standing still allowing wide open shots and dunks all game while seeing who can get to 180 points first? I haven't watched all star weekend for 2 seasons now because of this trash. Thoughts?

They usually pick up a bit of intensity in the 4th quarter I don't see a problem there's no prize for winning, if they gave home court advantage to the side that won I bet you would see more defense
