I'm as big of a basketball fan that I know, but even I can't understand how people can enjoy watching anything All Star Weekend related. It's a joke at this point.

So is the skills challenge. Anything that forces the competitors to try or they are instantly eliminated is good. The last quarter of the Allstar game was good this year too.

I don't get the constant whining. This was a very good all star weekend. The dunk contest was great. The game was one of the most competitive we've seen in an all star setting. The format worked.

It's hip to bash on the all star weekend, but this was by all means a win for the NBA and basketball fans
