Warriors, Thunder, Cavs v. the field would be my formulaI don't think any of the major 4 can come up with a formula to make people care about all star games. I follow the local teams very closely and I haven't watched one in over a decade.
I've always liked the MLB all-star game. It's fun to see matchups that you virtually never get to see. And it's just plain fun.I don't think any of the major 4 can come up with a formula to make people care about all star games. I follow the local teams very closely and I haven't watched one in over a decade.
The draft will be even more fun than the actual game. I love this.
This right here. The League may have accidentally hit upon the perfect way to get everyone's beefs out in the air and extract some ratings mileage over it. Not even the NHL avoided drama with this method, and the NBA is considerably more, um, star-driven.No love for Kyrie?
I guess the NBA didn't want LBJ and Kyrie on the same team during ASG since they'd try to freeze each other out.
When I was a kid there was an awesome moment in the ASG when the East rolled out Havlicek, Silas, Cowens, White and Monroe. And then Jo Jo called a play.Warriors, Thunder, Cavs v. the field would be my formula
Wade (or Iggy or Roberson as defensive sub)
Can the rest of the NBA beat them? You'd get people to watch
I agree this format will not fix this problem. If players don't care about their conference, why will they care about "Team Steph, "Team Russ" etc.The NBA All-Star Game was just fine until about five years ago, when the players stopped even pretending to play defense. That’s the problem the league should be trying to address, not the East-West talent imbalance (which should fix itself over time).
Sign me up, that would be awesome!In today's reality TV culture, I think this could be an event at all of the big 4 all-star games (with the appropriate video have if course). The trash talk would be epic and hilarious.
Not sure how it would change much. All 4 are going to be in the game anyway and if Curry doesn't pick first, James probably picks Durant. There is some intrigue to this. I mean, it's mostly lame but why not?http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20994143/golden-state-warriors-stephen-curry-says-select-teammates-all-star-game
Ugh. I guess the Warriors really do enjoy being hated. Who wants to watch the Warriors play together at the All Star Game?
