learn from MLB. Winning side gets HCA in the finals, then both sides try.

But then others will argue they don't want their players to play too much because they don't want to risk injury in an exhibition game. Either way, like everything else, people will *****.

there is no way they do something like that for the rookie sophmore game. some kind of cash reward might be the ticket, but then again for like half the people here are important players for playoff teams.

Oh yea, I mean ASG not the rookie sophomore game. Just thought it applied too since both games are just street ball games, even worse than that tbh.

sorry itís called MVP not MFP ďMost Flashiest PlayerĒ

the person that brought the most value was the one who contributed more points.... Tre had a better game then Kuz kuz just shot more. 35 points was nice but it was inefficient Kuzma shot well from 2 but was horrid from 3 and had 35 points on 27 shots taken with 0 assists... Tre finished with 10 less points on 47 percent shooting but was insane from 3 on top of dishing out 10 assists and 7 rebounds....

10 less points/9 more assists/1 more rebound on 8 less shots taken... He takes 8 more shots the way he was shooting 3s he blows past 35 points... Kuzma was good but tre was better/flashier.


Ben simmons had the lebron effect... was the best player on the floor but his team couldnt held the real MVP : )

Expand the Dunk Contest and 3 Point Shootout to include Ladies and Past Payers and have All-Star Weekend at a city that doesn't have a NBA Team like KC or St. Louis or Tampa Bay and Trade Deadline at the same time then GM's can be live at to talk Trades.

James and Westy are bound to disappoint IMO. Bron might pull some crazy random ish in a practice and upload it on the net, but I don't like his agility. The greats like VC, MJ, Nique, JRich had more agility and hang time for aesthetics. Howard didn't have agility but he was creative as hell and maximize what he was good at to go along with creativity. Those guys just seem like power and speed dunkers.

The dunks are demanding. I think they worry more about the type of injury that can come out of trying to do a fancy dunk.

he was traded to orlando due to injury. thought cle couldn't afford him because Bron got his boys from Klutch paid.

its the best spot for him... He wouldnt do well with another star... he has the perfect team around him if he were playing on another team with a star his play would fall off because they would likely lack shooters/depth... Giannis will always get his but that isnt always best for the team... He needs to prove it in the playoffs this year... Its finals or bust for all 4 teams in the East basically.

The number 1 thing being said right now is just how incredibly smart lebron is lololololol.... He traded westy for Ben. Gotta give Lebron his credit there... I have said it a ton... People wanting guys like Ben or even Lonzo to shoot and criticizing them for not shooting enough can just look at westy.... Westy if he took a page out of either of their books and would settle for what he is good at and stick to it and only take a big outside shot when he 100 needs to the thunder would be legit.

Yup. Now Ben and lonzo def need a jump shot down the line but they can grow and fix it gradually.... shooting just to shoot and hurting your team like westy does is far far far worse.


westy was 8-20.... 6 of these were layups or dunks in like the 3rd or he would have had a beyond horrid night. He was dropping 3s when guys like giannis were able to just dunk 90 percent of the time at will because of the lack of defense... westy wanted to shine and **** the bed hardcore.

Curry always shoots like **** in the ASG too, but he makes it fun for the most part.


My favorite was when Harden had double digit turnovers a couple years ago in the All Star Game (just thinking, he has to have the most 10+ turnover games in history at this point, right?). That's sort of ridiculous.

I just bet the over on the All Star game every year now and it basically always hits. The game itself is so bad, save for a few fun highlights like Curry to Giannis (especially Giannis' grin afterwards), and Jokic "WTF?" face after they called a phantom touch foul on him for Lebron.
