NBA Allstar Game revamp

We all see the hate the current format has. There is no competitive fight, or pride for the jersey.

What if they cut the Allstar name and the All NBA First team plays each other with 2 subs. Cut numbers down to 7 per team and play 10 min quarters. The winning team gets home court advantage in the NBA Finals and $100,000,000

Imagine Giannis vs Joker with home court on the line?

The honor of becoming an All NBA player means a whole lot more, some players might be lucky to achieve 5 All NBA games in their career, so when they get a chance would give their all.

I honestly think this would bring some competitiveness and give the fans what they're after - a serious pickup game with the NBAs elites.

Do you think it would work?

Cause what they’re serving up lately is nauseating

Does not matter what they do it is still CRAP.

Pick all the players. Sort by age or league experience. Pit youngest against oldest. The veterans would want to show they still have it. The upcomers would want to prove themselves. Couldn't be worst than now.

USA/North America v International would surely get them playing competitively, but apparently the USA players aren't keen because they know they'd lose!

Flogging a dead horse. Cancel it and cancel naming all stars and make them bleat. Maybe in a few years gauge if they will truly respect the honour. At the moment it's just an embarrassment and a slap in the face to fans.
Silver is pissed about the debacle, would expect something extreme.

Award zero points in dunk contest for jumping over retured players, celebs and/or inanimate objects. Dunking wearing a costume minus 10 points, dunking with a prop minus 5 points. Any dunks awarded 50 points minus 45 points straight away. Or just cancel it entirely, its cringe to the max

It's a big like AFL’s state of origin - died because players didn’t take it seriously.


For mine it’s the Americas versus the world, at least try it, I’d much rather watch that, than watch the captains select players for a pickup game

Also needs a carrot, winning team gets 2 mill for charity of choice ??

Given that it's just a way for media and fans to show their appreciation for their stars, so that it’s a popularity contest rather than a team selected to be competitive, they don’t even need to play the meaningless game.

Just have the selected stars walk out on court to widespread applause - that’s all the accolades they need.
