I love Lillard's game. You starting him over Curry or Doncic? I don't see it.

If you listen to pundits, they'll always insist 20 guys are "Top 10 players in this league." The math just doesn't work. Agree with Gonz, you're not taking him above those other 2 guys. Doesn't mean he's not great, just that he's not 1 or 2.

Nba Allstar game was always about the fans, then players egos and pride made them change it giving players and media 50% weight and he still didn't get it.

Kenny Smith was saying he was a top 5 nba player just even a top 10, if you dissolved all teams and started picking for this year where is dame picked?

Lebron, durant, kawhi, giannis, Harden, butler, curry, luka, embid Tatum Beal....like I know he is not top 5 he may not even be top 10 in the league,

The aim at Dallas record but didn't seem to care about Bradley beal on a shaitty team scoring a lot of points

The All-Star roster is what it is, and there is no point in arguing about it, since it is locked in (and, considering the fan vote comes into play, renders the sportsball writers opinions moot, as the fans will vote for who they decide to vote for, and the fans will ignore the sportsball writers opinions).

Klay Thompson (hasn't played in 2 years, torn achilles) finished ninth in fan voting and got one player vote (can't vote for yourself). He got no media votes and ended up at 19th for western guards.

Damb. I wanted to see Thompson draining threes from a wheelchair.

I honestly don't mind the fan vote getting watered down. I just want to see a couple dozen of the best players in the league go out and play a game with minimal defense and show the hell off.

I want to see Steph pop an intentional shot from the halfcourt circle, and if he hits the first one, heat check until he misses.

I want to see AD and Giannis elevate out of the gym, and then show off guard skills.

These guys have the entire season to play serious. For one night, it should just be about showing off.

I think they need to just go all MTV Rock and Jock with the NBA game. Modify the rules. Add 5, 10, 20 pt shots. Go crazy with it.

The game as it exists doesn't resemble a regular NBA game anyway.

I liked the format last year where they won quarters. They game seemed serious all the way thorough

Dame and Luka are my favorite players in the league.
