Anyway the freestyle round was good and it's something I'd like to see continue, first round freestyle is something I'm glad they got back to.  

I wish that the second round was the contest portion.  However both George and Wall's dunks were the best.  

There should have been one FINAL round where those three got to go at each other to see who was the best dunker.  That's what Charles recommended and I think that's the next step. 

Only had one gimmicky dunk, and Wall's dunk was impressive as was George's 180 through the legs.   

Much better than last years contest. 

And to say "WORST ALL STAR WEEKEND EVER" is very asinine.  

The celebrity all-star game was the best one ever. 

The rookie and sophomore game was extremely entertaining and competitive. 

The Skills challenge came down to .1 of a second, the three point shootout came at high drama.  

Seriously guys, worst ever?  NOT EVEN CLOSE.     Thus far it's been one of the better ones in recent memory.

I hope the all-star game won't be a joke. I hope players are competitive and play 4 quarters. I have feeling Durant is going to try to go off.

We should do what MLB does. Winner of the All-Star game gets to host the Finals. That will make the game competitive.

They should've added a last round between the 3 winners of round 2

They better fix it next year by adding that extra round for the winning team to go at it. John Wall's dunk was great and one more round after that with the East guys would have been perfect.

That's really the only thing that was missing from it IMO.   I think they'll likely add it next year. 

That or what they COULD do is have the 3 East and 3 west go against each other in an elimination style and the winner of East and West go against each other in the last round. 

Either way it could work.   But I think the freestyle first round should definitely stay.  I missed that

I thought this all star weekend has been pretty good so far

.1 second win in the skills challenge, and an OT for the 3pt

The judging for the dunk contest was lame, but there were some nasty dunks this year

I thought the 3 east players were going to go against one another once they won their showdowns with the west. That was weak how they ended it.

Last year's dunk contest was MUCH better.

You wanna' save the dunk contest NBA? Again, pretty simple, do this:

 

 

If you have to get non NBAers to do it, then so be it, point is to put on the best show possible imo. That'll get people out their seats.

The whole all star weekend is an embarrassment

Wouldn't go that far, still miles better than the NFL pro bowl.

Damn I enjoyed it.

thats what ur mom said

Warren Warren seriously. Don't be an idiot here. That's not something you even try to joke about with another member. You know that's crossing the line. You're too og & a long-standing member to risk your time here over some stupid bull[expletive]. Keep beeing you, but just don't do that again. You should even apologize to be honest.

I will only say that I'm glad I didn't stay up to watch this crap. One of better decisions this week.
