Default The most hilarious thing about this meaningless game called the All Star Game

The minutes are never spread out evenly to give some of the guys you fought for much time anyway. I laugh at that. This game has no meaning whatsoever. And to go further it has no set criteria. Think about it, Korver is more of an All Star than Brandon Knight? No. Is Bosh more of an All Star than Vucevic? No. But their teams won more games therefore that has something to do with being an All Star which I thought was an individual accomplishment, not team.

Starting the All star game was the difference in Kyrie Irving getting his actual max contract and not, so I wouldnt say the game has no meaning.

It was worse back in the day. Just checked the 1971 game, amd a total of five players played 7 minutes or less. How do you play someone 2 minutes in an all star game?

It's a popularity contest and a game for casual fans.

I still enjoy it though. I look forward to the dunks and the 4th quarter is usually fun as hell when it's competitive. I still remember in 2012 when LeBron was scared to take the game winner. He was feeling pressure in a freaking all-star game. Kobe got on his ass and Durant won MVP.

I guess that pressure was gone by the 2012 Finals then

2012 Thunder were completely outmatched. Harden shit the bed. Perkins was getting big minutes. The refs clearly favored Heat. It's amazing those games were even competitive considering the circumstances.

Still can't believe Durant averaged 31 points on 55% shooting at age 23. Absolutely insane. LeBron at age 22 averaged 22 points on 35% and got swept by the Spurs.

Come on now. We both know Durant was not nearly as effective as his scoring numbers would indicate.

That an there were other people on the team to take pressure off of him. Bron didn't have that luxury.

What else could it possibly turn into? You made a thread about how meaningless you think the All-Star game is. You make a tired thread and a tired argument ensues. Blame yourself.

Blame idiots like yourself who cant help themselves no matter what thread it is to mention Bron. Get off his nuts you flaming f*ggot. This is how pathetic you are. You mentioned Bron afraid to take a GW shot and felt pressure in an AS game. I can tell you're a bore on dates, probably spend most of the time face buried in your phone refreshing ISH to see who replied to you so you can counter. Pay attention to your date nitwit
