Any comments on the NBA All-Star game and related activities?
The game itself was horrible (no one even thought about playing any defense throughout the entire game; and no one did). If was as if the team with the ball was playing 5 on Zero instead of 5 on 5.
My only other thought worth mentioning is that apparently:
"White men CAN Jump"
(as evidenced by the dunk contest being won by a 6' or 6'1" tall white G-League player trying to get a roster spot on an NBA team).
The whole concept of an All Star Game in any sport has, over the past 20+ years, moved away from having the best players in the sport actually "compete" against each other.
All Star Games have expanded in scope to where they now encompass 4-5 days of All Star "Experiences"; and are capped by the All Star Game itself. During the 4-5 days celebration the particular sport mimicks what happens in the Music, Film and Television industries (awards shows where the participants take to a public stage, give each other awards and say "Look At Me; Look At Me; Look At Me" as I/We am/are wonderful).
