    MLB all star is the closest to a real game than any of them. With that said I do enjoy the NBA all star game.

    You are a better man than me. I literally watched about 2 minutes and thought this was about as stupid as anything I have seen in a while. Total joke. I love the NBA and the players are amazing but the All Star game is unwatchable to me.

    This is what I don't understand. An All-Star game is not supposed to be a defensive battle. It is supposed to show case the awesomeness of these professional athletes. Last night did exactly that.

    I understand that your not going to see much effort on defense, but I wish that they would at least pretend to play some defense instead of allowing uncontested drives through the lane for dunks. At least put a hand up or something.

    That's what the regular season games are for.

    If the All Star game was "competitive" like a regular season game, I wouldn't watch it, more than likely.

    Because I want to see a BASKETBALL GAME, not a bunch of guys running up and down the floor basically playing H-o-r-s-e. I want to see the best shooter, rebounder, defender, etc. Know what I mean?

    I'd still watch it but what we saw yesterday is what I prefer. I want to see them showing off and showcasing their abilities and skills. I want to see them doing things they don't do often in games. Like shoot from 35 feet, shoot 3s over and over and do dunk contest quality dunks in a game.

    Yeah, get the NBA League Pass and watch as many regular season games as you can like I do. I see those things every night with the flick of the wrist.

    I'm just the opposite. I want to see the best go at it, seriously. But, as I always say, I'm old school.

    Ya know PP, I used to watch a ton of NBA back in the day. I just don't like the product any more. I guess the last time I paid a lot of attention was in the Pistons' heyday........yeah, I know, I'm old.

    Yes, I like to watch the skills stuff as well, just don't call it a game. Call it a skills competition.

    I grew up watching Magic, Bird and Dr. J. I thought the product suffered during the 90s and a lot of that was because I think the league became a defensive league. There was some brutal basketball during that time. I feel like now there is more overall talent in the league than ever before but I also think the basic fundamentals of the game are pretty low. Long story short, I think the NBA now is at its best it has been since the 80s. I haven't been this entertained by the NBA in quite some time and for me being a Laker fan that is saying a lot considering how awful they are.

    Maybe that's it. I like to watch fundamentally strong games. As a young man though, I LOVED the ABA which was a very innovative league at the time, go figure!
