    I seem to recall them having a legends game years ago?

    I only saw some highlights and the only celebrity I recognized were Horace Grant, Darius Miles, Nate Robinson, and Quentin Richardson. With Horace Grant being a nice highlight for some odd reason.

    Eliminate it and do G-league All Star game instead. I'm pretty sure those guys will give their all.

    I'm still thinking they need to do a 1 on 1 contest, but I suspect alot of guys don't want to be shown up so would be hard to get in the people you most want to see.

    It helps the popularity amongst the casual fans and sometimes grabs new ones because of the celeb. The thing I would change is less production. It's no longer organic.

    Anyone remember MTVs Rock n Jock b ball games?

    The NBA should let a different media company do the celebrity game with crazy rules and put actual celebrities in it. The NBA sucks at getting anything other than D-list talent

    I remember watching the one in 1997 with Gary Payton and the super high basket. That was a fun watch and it was also my first year watching basketball. One of my first basketball related memories.

    I don't want to see Nash, Reggie, et al huffing and puffing up and down the court while they try to run a fast break. I prefer to remember the way they were in there primes. Seeing them as well past their primes would just make me sad.

    I have no interest in watching celebs play basketball. While one or two of them may have some game, for the most part they're just looking for the exposure.

    My idea: NFL vs MLB

    Think about it. Both leagues have talented athletes, many of them were multi-sport stars in high school and even college. There's no problem for either league to put together a 12 player squad that can ball. ASG weekend falls nicely, the NFL season is over, and baseball spring training hasn't started. Put together a team from each league and have them go at each other. Granted, the respective leagues may not be too happy about their athletes risking injury in an exhibition game, but that's what insurance is for. On the plus side, both leagues would gain attention and respect for the athletic abilities of their players.
