IMO, NBA may have to think about expanding the amount of All-Stars to 14 and it can be from both conferences.

They should be like the Philippines league. 12 teams total but they have like 3 allstar teams some years. 25 percent of the guys make it!

luka has no business making it from a impact perspective this year. I think simmons had a case last year.

Klay over Gobert is a joke.
Klay over Tobias Harris is also a joke.
Klay does not deserve to be an Allstar this year.

If DLO, a former young talent from the Lakers can make the all-star game then what does that say about the young core the Lakers have? Oh but everyone wants to devalue them because everyone is a hater lmao 😂😂😂

Same, I've seen too many games this year where he's come up short against top teams. He started the year off very strong, but he's slowed down tremendously.

I think they all deserve to be all-stars. Just not enough spots.

Klay is a better two way player than either so it's not unreasonable for him to make it, just a bit of a shame that so many quality players miss out every year.

Hence why I think a tournament of small teams is the way to go. Need more players. And instead of needing the current number, make it like 30 total players, minimum of 10 from each conference.

It wasn't a joke last year. Was fun to watch and players mostly cared. I'm willing to bet it becomes just as competitive this season. I actually thought that Wade/Dirk being in it was done very well. Don't make them an official All-Star but just let them play for a few minutes. These guys were both pioneers of the game. On a second note, wow, Draymond and Andre laughing at Gobert for crying shows how little class they both have.

People *****ing about Wade and Dirk being in the all star game (while not taking a spot from anyone more deserving) arenít true fans of the game. You should want to see top 20 players ever out there having fun in their last season, it makes for good memories.

I watched when I was a kid, but I don't think I have watched a minute of All Star weekend outside the dunk contest since the late 90's. But, I do understand it probably means something to many of the players, especially the ones who haven't been there.

I think letting legends in their final year play in the All-Star game for a few minutes is an awesome idea. I hope they keep it up. Maybe next year we see Vince Carter and Pau Gasol in.

D'Lo is good but his teammates have surprised me the most. I've always liked Joe Harris's game and felt Cleveland should have used him more. Spencer has been just as good. Joe Harris shooting 46% from three and his name never gets mentioned. Dude can shoot. Unfortunately, I'm not sure D'Lo will be resigned. And Crabbe won't opt out.

Iím gonna have to disagree with you on this one man. Thatís some straight B.S.

Iíd argue it takes far more strength to show emotion and accept it wether or not anyone is around you or not. And while I donít think your statement is attempting to ostracize him itís a common enough thought amongst most men that I felt the need to comment. The prevailing thought in our society is that real men real strength is not showing emotion. That to me sounds far more like repression than strength.

the sad part is these guys will pretend that bullying is a problem and here they are, being nearly or over 30 years old making millions of dollars and bullying a fellow professional NBA player who is better than them.

It wasn't spin. I don't really care who gets in and I'm not going to watch that joke of a "game". It's up to the western conference coaches to choose reserves and they preferred Klay, and I can see how they might make that choice. I'd put Rudy in over KAT and LMA too but it's not up to me.

I don't think KAT should have been an All-Star. I'd put LMA there, though. KAT hasn't been very good. and Rose deserves a lot more credit for what he's doing in Minny

And doing it over Twitter no less. I find it funny he told Barkley to come find him and say it to his face but he took to the internet to troll Rudy. Green is the fakest tough guy since KG.
