Giannis and Irving taking it too seriously.

Since when is competing taking it too seriously? It's a shame that it's seen that way. If guys want that all-star MVP tag then they've gotta go for it. From memory Kobe went hard every all-star game, got his shots up, and people loved it.

The general consensus was that last year's all-star game was the best in a long time because they actually tried at the end.

It's when players who already have 20 points ignore other players to score more. I guess I see it as a game to get everyone involved, not a score 30 points to inflate my ego game. A few time giannis ignored players —- jokic even questioned him why he didn’t pass it. I mean by that stage I had already seen 10 giannis boring dunks.

I don't understand why they keep doing a skills challenge, when none of the players show any interest or effort. At least in the 3-point and dunk contests the players who enter genuinely try.

Time to piss off the ASG and other crap. Just name 20 players and get on with the season.

Most of the players didn't even want to participate. The NBA should have let them have a break.
By all means do voting so they can have an allstar* selection next to their name. Probably one of the lamest games in a while.

All star US born v Rest of the World (allowing some latitude).
