The NBA needs to really shake up the all-star weekend if they want me to care. Actually, they need to make the players care first.

I like the idea of a 3 on 3 round robin tournament with first to 21 or 10 minutes whichever comes first and the winning team gets $5M each. This should be the majority of the weekend events. If they need to fill more time increase the minimum points and/or the minutes to make the games go longer. If $5M per isn't enough, double it. At some point the players WILL care and will try to win. They could even televise practice for the teams. The fan voting can determine the 10 team captains and players/media/coaches can determine the other 20 players. The draft should be on TV and during the all-star weekend.

I think the side competitions (3 point, dunk, celebrity, skills, legends) should be broken up with each one only happening once every 3 years and only 3 happening a year.

THEN I'd watch.

Watched about 35 seconds of the Celebrity game before it was too awful to watch. Got through about 48 seconds of the Rising Stars game (saw 1 made 3, 4 missed 3's and an uncontested layup), and that'll do it for the Rising Star Game. I'll check back for the 3pt shootout.

Rising stars game has and will always be trash.

All-star game has been the same for a while too now.

The only fun night is the three-point shooting contest, skills challenge, and SOMETIMES the dunk contest.

These games are so pointless. They are boring. I'd rather they just do more events/contests and not even bother playing the games. Like make them play horse or knock out or something.

They did Horse a couple of years ago and only used Rondo (who can't shoot), Casspi (a slightly above average player at the time that played for a Kings team that no one gave a **** about) and Durant. From what I remember, it was terrible. Turned into a three point shooting contest for some reason.

THEN I'd watch.

This.

8 Captains determined by voting, this year would have been:

Captains:
LeBron
Durant
Curry
Irving
Harden
Giannis
Embiid
DeRozan

Player Pool:
Thompson
Westbrook
Aldridge
Beal
Drummond
Horford
George
Lillard
Butler
Lowry
Towns
Draymond
Walker
Dragic
Oladipo

Draft order is set via lottery.
Extra rule to avoid drama NBA doesn't want: You cannot pick your own teammates

Draft on friday night, makes the all-star weekend more fun plus you already have the injury replacements set so no ones team changes.

Split the 8 teams into two groups. 12 games in total. Every team gets to play atleast 3 games. 2 advance in each group.

So the whole weekend:

Friday:
Nationally televised draft
Rookie vs Sophomore game
Skills Contest
3PT Contest
Celebrity Game

Saturday:
12 Group Games
Dunk Contest

Sunday:

Semi-Finals
Final

Would be more interesting for sure.

Dunk Contest probably going to be **** again. I wonder what new, idiotic rules they made for this one. Also, I don't see the hype about Mitchell. I don't think he will be good at all but I hope he proves me wrong.

Another thing, Terrance Ferguson should have been in this dunk contest. They need to up the participants to at least 6.

Nice idea, though the only flaw I see is that a player that plays in the 3 on 3 games would be too tired to do the dunk contest like Oladipo

I dunno I wasn't that impressed with the backboard tap dunk. It honestly didn't look that hard for him and I feel like he could have done more with it like a reverse after catching it, then that would have been really cool. Also, didn't Dwight already do something similar which would make it lose a lot of its creativity.

He'll take himself outcif anything. I see amazing defense played every game I watch. I watch the Bucks and we have a ****en amazing player who plays defense and coach who teaches it after dipshit got fired. We were top 3 in most defense categories since prunty took over until the Denver game. Thanks to an amazing coach and player.

lol nvm i dont want to get us in trouble.

I think the Bucks front office heard you calling Giannis a terrible player, stat stuffer and that they'd never be more than +/- 2-6 either way of.500. And then Larry and Edens read my posts on their burner accounts and saw my Jkidd thread going back to 2017 and pants going back to 2016. And they were like "we ain't gonna allow no 76ers fans to talk down to us. Dilly dilly Jkidd. To the Pitt of misery you go".

I'm just wondering why I haven't gotten a call from the front office about being a special assistant to the GM yet.

I swear NYC and LA have a 1 time every 6 years deal with the NBA.

Would like to see Milwaukee get one, Portland. Miami could be fun if they want to take some of Saturday night outside. I would love to see some non-NBA city get it at some point. Seattle, Pittsburgh, St. Louis.

Nate Robinson beating Andre Iguodala killed the dunk contest.

That year is the year that creativity was not rewarded, but rather showmanship. Iggy going off the back of the backboard reverse should have been remembered.

Instead Robinson taking 5 minutes to throw one down was rewarded because he was small.

If Iggy wins that weíre still on the path of creativity.
