NBA To Change All-Star Game Format

NBA To Change All-Star Game Format

For the first time in the history of the league, the All-Star game will not feature a contest between the stars from their respective conference - East vs.

After the NBA and National Basketball Players Association announced changes to the All-Star Game on Tuesday, some of the league's top stars shared their thoughts on the new format.

The leading vote-getters will be the team captains and they'll pick from a pool of players.

In another new move, the two All-Star teams will play for charity, raising money for either a Los Angeles-based non-profit or a national organisation. Can Draymond Green shut down Kevin Durant? "But just to go into something with the idea that we're going to entertain the fans is kind of shortchanging people'". They would vote for players from each conference to represent that conference in the All-Star Game, 5 starters and 7 reserves per team. As Zillgitt notes, the game does not have to be played with the competitiveness of a Finals game, but in recent years, the exhibition had become listless, with little defense or energy.

The NBA All-Star Game will air live on TNT on February 18 at 8 p.m. ET. And with the 2017 season fast approaching, the excitetement to see this new re-vamped All-Star game will only grow higher.

Players will still be voted in the same way, with weighted votes from fans, media, and other players.

The NBA All-Star game, which normally highlights All-Star weekend, has received nearly a complete makeover. He was snubbed from last year's All-Star game in New Orleans. Coaches still select the 14 other reserves who play on the team after the starters are selected. Let's just hope whoever is their All-Star game coach runs the triangle.

Most notably, the two conferences will not compete against one another beginning with this season's All-Star game in Los Angeles. If LeBron James were to win the fan vote and received the No. 1 overall pick the draft, who would he take?
