NBA All Star Game

Anyone watching this garbage?
I hoped the new format would bring back some competitiveness but yet again it is proving to be a waste of time...

Utter garbage.
As someone else pointed out, Naming the MVP of the least competitive game in the entire NBA schedule after one of the most competitive guys ever, is just stupid.

This music is like listening to karaoke at a kindergarten.

its basically some weird self loving thing and people jumping around like nuffies on the side line everytime some dunks.

Bit like the dunk contest whats with all the hangers on jumping around all over the court cuddling each each? Its just strange

Reality - it's an American thing. Watch any highlights of any game of basketball, from YMCA to High School etc... and you will see people overreacting to anything and everything. It's utterly bizarre.

its an 'american thing' because america actually has players that can make athletic plays that warrant reactions like that..

and not sure i would call the reigning mvp a 'hanger on'.

people that have the opinion that entertainment and spectacle have no place in professional sports are the reason australian basketball is where it is.

basketball should be fun and seeing the fans react the way they do is a testament to the ability of these incredible players. if you have an issue with other people enjoying the best players in the world showcase their talent i feel sorry for you.

You feel sorry for people who think forced over-reactions look stupid? I bet you love the rehearsed elaborate handshakes too!

It is an American Thing, yes. In my experience, Americans are, on the whole, more free to express fun, excitement, and silliness than Australians are. They, en masse, get into things. Australians, en masse, are more reserved.

no, i feel sorry for people who crave the need to complain about everything.

i would challenge any person to have floor seats to the dunk comp/all star game (both of which have been the best in recent memory) and not react a little differently to watching it at home.

and as far as the handshake comment... lol. a grown adult complaining about people doing a handshake, you have to laugh.

if people's complaint about this year is everyone's having too much fun, then:
(A) i think you miss the point of all-star break completely
(B) maybe just stay watching the nbl and politely clap to a vast range of finger-rolls and bounce passes

^I think you may be right, but to be fair the quality of the NBL has improved a lot over the last few years, a lot of people on here just don't like all star games nba or NBL.
I love the idea and still remember how exciting l was seeing Jordan dunk from the free throw line.
