 Back again this week and we apologize for our absence and discuss the Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest, and Dunk Contest. We debate the future of the Dunk Contest and question the relevance of All-Star Weekend. The conversation concludes with a debate on the All-Star Game format. The conversation covers various topics related to the NBA, including the lack of effort in the All-Star Game, the lack of defense in the league, and possible solutions to improve the game. The evolution of the NBA and the impact of offensive rule changes are also discussed. The value of defensive players and the changing role of big men are explored. The desire for more scoring and the possibility of a four-point line are debated. The issues between George Karl and Carmelo Anthony, as well as the criticism of Austin Rivers by Stephen Jackson, are highlighted. The conversation concludes with a discussion on the focus on drama over basketball in the NBA. In this episode, we discuss the number of podcasts and the saturation of the market. We also talk about the ratings and reviews of their own podcast. The conversation then shifts to the real contenders in basketball and the chances of different teams winning the championship. We express our thoughts on the Boston Celtics and their potential for success. We also discuss the possibility of Cleveland beating Boston in the playoffs. The episode concludes with a discussion about potential locations for the All-Star game and the use of LED courts in NBA games.
