Re: It's sad it's come to this
Unfortunately, this is the sad truth. The players simply don't take these events serious anymore. I've heard excuses like they don't want to get injured, etc. The only player I did see play the ASG like any other game was Noah.
The saddest part was how pathetic the dunk contest has become. I remember growing up and seeing the cream of the crop participate in the dunk contest, guys like MJ, Wilkins, Vince Carter. Now it's either rookies or guys like Gerald Green, James White, and so on. Don't get me wrong, they may have hops but it's not remotely the same as watching Superstars go at it.
