NBA Scraps East Vs. West All-Star Game Format, Captains Will Pick Teams

And it seems like a foregone conclusion who those captains would be. Coach Luke Walton said Ball will be re-evaluated Wednesday before the Lakers determine whether the No. 2 overall pick will play against the Nuggets that night. "But it's pretty exciting". Would be prettaaayy, pretttaayy awkward if he doesn't make either team, which isn't too outlandish of a thought. "There's a lot of ways you can go". Steve Kerr of the Warriors and Brad Stevens of the Boston Celtics are ineligible because they coached in last season's game.

Curry has a unique responsibility as an expected captain. Curry, Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson stay on the floor for an entire quarter with a rotating fifth to further prove that Golden State is a black hole capable of swallowing up and spitting out any opponents.

I just hope this isn't a step in the direction of playoff reform.

And if Curry does not? Terry Francona said something that kind of resonated with me. We could see the East captain select Russell Westbrook just to have him go at Kevin Durant; you can say the same about Kyrie Irving going to the West to go against LeBron James. It should be fun to see how it plays out. One way to make the playoffs more competitive is to simply rank the playoff teams 1 through 16 based on overall record.

Houston Rockets star Chris Paul, who serves as the president of the NBA Players' Association, was instrumental in the changes to the format. This will mark the NBA's first All-Star Game without a matchup between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference. "I think it's good". Consider: Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and Jimmy Butler all made the 2017 All-Star Game from the East.

The next one could be pretty exciting.

The 67 All-Star Game will be played at Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 18 (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT), with TNT televising the midseason classic for the 16consecutive year. Two teams facing off which don't care whether they win or lose... the idea of giving the players some ownership in their rosters and throwing in that there will be a donation to charity on the line might liven things up. Until that improves, the game will be but an afterthought of all-star weekend.
