NBA Changes All-Star Game Format

By HHL Editors

The NBA All-Star game has become an arguably unwatchable display of offensive at the expense of any defense at all.

The league is hoping a format change may make things more interesting.

This year, instead of East vs. West, two team captains will pick the teams from a pool of 22 other all-stars.

There will still be 12 players selected from each league, and the leading vote-getters in each league will be the captains.  The 10 "starters" -- two guards and three frontcourt players per conference -- will still be chosen by a combo of fans (50%), current players (25%) and basketball media (25%) votes. The NBA’s head coaches will still pick the 14 "reserves."

“I’m thrilled with what the players and the league have done to improve the All-Star Game, which has been a priority for all of us,” NBPA president and Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to putting on an entertaining show in L.A.”
Do you think the new format will make things more competitive?

Who-picks-who-when could certainly make for some interesting grudges in the second half of the season.
