    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.

    What a shame the reigning ROTY and top rook from his class is injured. In not watching anything this weekend. Got shots to slam and the watching these pedestrian events will only add to my headache

    Calling it now. This AS game will be one of the better ones in recent memory.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    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.

    See my post above ... I'd happily add Horse and knockout (allowing interference) to the rotation of all star weekend events.
