I'm watching it with my son. Otherwise I would be watching the George Washington mini series on the History Channel. I'm recording it, so I'll watch it tomorrow.


Why watch?

I always have people tell me the NBA is more popular than Clemson Football. And I know people wouldn't lie to me, yet, I always run into people who watch Clemson football but never into anyone who watches the NBA.

No defense or hustle. Changed the set up this year where each quarter each team is competing for a charity. So one charity gets 100k and the other gets 0 or is there some kind of smaller amount they give to non wining charity.


The non-winning charity still received $100k***

Guys taking charges, hustling back on defense, coaches drawing up plays, arguing calls, etc. With the new format the 4th quarter made that All Star game the best I’ve ever seen.

The charity set up is beneficial and some kids there rooting for their cause made the game worthwhile. Players really wanted to win. Some folks on Tnet just do not like the NBA. To each his own.

song to honor him, Common made rhymes about him, Team Giannis all wore his number while Team Lebron all wore Gigi's number, Kobe's number 24 was used to calculate the target score in the 4th quarter and the All Star Game MVP Award is now named after Kobe.

Europe or China, the NBA is immensely popular. Far more popular than any other sports league in the USA.

Doesn't every all-star game suck?

The only professional sports that have decent "all-star games" are ones like golf where there's very little chance of injury and the chance of injury doesn't increase along with the intensity of the game.

The NBA all-star game sucks, the MLB all-star game is slightly better because baseball is a non-contact sport, but it still kind of sucks, and the Pro Bowl is just awful Does anyone even watch the Pro Bowl?

The Ryder Cup is great though.

and it couldn't be more wrong. Those "thugs" played their butts off in the 4th quarter last night to win hundreds of thousands of dollars for local Chicago charities.

It's pretty unreal that someone would even make a comment like that.

After reading all of the replies, I came up with 2 responses:
1) I went to bed before the 4th quarter began. I watched it at lunch, and the 4th quarter was a pleasant surprise. They actually played to win.
2) I do like me some table tennis!!!


Didn’t watch. I was too busy recreating a scene from Gran Torino.
