CALIFORNIA – Want to have a say with regard changes to be done in the NBA All-Star? Just email NBA Commissioner at Adam@NBA.com.
Silver is toying with making changes in next year’s All-Star in Los Angeles to make it into an authentic game.
This, after Silver and players’ union head Chris Paul of the LA Clippers talked about how to make the All-Stars more competitive.
“We will change it by next year. It shouldn’t be playoff intensity but the guys should be playing,” Silver said at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.
Silver gave an email address for anyone who wants to send ideas on how to change the All-Star.
“You hear people talking about 4-point shots, something that’s not about to happen in the NBA, but maybe in an All-Star Game. Maybe there’s a few spots on the floor where it’s a 4-point shot. Maybe there’s a halfcourt shot in the last minute that’s 10 points. I don’t know. Those are crazy ideas,” said Silver.
Paul, for his part, told reporters over the weekend “we collectively want to try to make All-Star weekend better for the fans. All the way around. Even in CBA talks and stuff like that, that was one of the things that the players, the owners and everybody was talking about. Trying to fix that, spice it up a little bit to keep it interesting.” GAC/Expat Media
