    I enjoyed a break from the Blazers losing the 4th qtr again.

    I watched all of it. Made me realize I’m still a big Dame fan. I REALLY wanted to win 3 point contest and MVP and was very happy when he did. Also, the halfcourt shots were cool. Scoot played well. I wish Shaedon could’ve played. All in all, better than last year.

    Platypus, I congratulate you on being the first, so far as I know, to use the word monotreme on the board. And correct usage.

    Didn't watch any.

    Didn't care.

    After looking at a couple of the articles about the whole weekend, will continue my absolute lack of interest in AS weekend for the foreseeable future.

    The actual "game" has been a joke for a long time. It it unwatchable. It's actually stupid.

    The 3-pt contest is the only part of the whole thing that has any suspense and skill involved. It's always fun to watch. But that's it.

    It was great when you had MJ, Bird, Magic, Clyde, and the old guard.

    But guys just don't seem to play like that anymore.

    I thought the Rising Stars Challenge was okay. Found myself rooting for the G-League Ignite, after Scoot's team got knocked out obviously.

    I think I'd like the 3 point contest if not for all the stupid bonus balls and stuff. Why can't it be just how many balls you make, like it is in reality?

    The dunk contest couldn't be more boring, wow.

    I think the attitude in the main game is indicative of the NBA as a whole now. Seems like overall players could give a fuck.

    Maybe the most insane thing about the All-Star weekend is that it doesn't just rotate on a 30 year cycle or something like that (30 years seems like a long time, but you get the idea). The NBA should be promoting every city and every city should be proud to host. They could incorporate the home team and do all this cool shit. Instead, it's in one of the most dystopian cities in the world that doesn't even have a team.

    Rereading what I wrote, it appears I'm feeling pretty negative about the whole thing, but as a great man once said, "You're not wrong, [insert my name]. You're just an asshole."

    Both 3-point contests were great. Only saw the dunk contest just to see Mac McClung (didn't watch last year's). There seems to be a lot of discussion about how to improve the ASG. A lot of discussion that I've seen is revolved around how to incentivize the players to play harder. I don't think these players should be more financially motivated to play.

    This might sound radical (and I'm prolly in the minority with this), but Silver should consider handing one or two-game suspensions to players who don't even look they're trying to participate on some conduct detrimental to the integrity of the league type of shit. Other from that, I'm at the point where I'm fine if they get rid of All-Star Weekend altogether, use the week as a mini bye week and have the trade deadline during that week. Idk.

    All Star games bore me. I watch sports for the competition aspect.

    At 64, I am near the end of watching professional Title games of any sport. Haven't watched a Bball, or NFL title game in over 10 years.

    The throating I receive from audio and visuals of sports using their platform for racial, political, and religious footing, has me gagging for my last breath.
    It is so far removed from the game, that it is simply no longer enjoyable. I spend the entire time muting commercials, pregame, interviews, and especially
    .....half time. That shit show that the NFL now drags on at half time of the SB is horrendous. I have zero interest in seeing cameo's of Taylor Swift, or Spike
    Lee, or any other known individual to increase viewership demographic and ratings numbers. I think I have watched my last SB.

    Remember, it is the fans who drive this. I don't completely blame the networks, they are merely providing the content that the fans are swallowing whole. Alas, the only
    response I can give, is my vote. By no longer watching, I cast my vote. It won't matter to sports, but it matters to me.
