Poll: What Did You Think Of The Changes To NBA All-Star Weekend?

NBA All-Star weekend may have come and gone, but the debate over the changes that were made to Saturday’s events linger on!

Earlier today, in my NBA Daily Links, I shared with you a link that described the new Slam-Dunk competition format as being “confusing, boring, underwhelming, frustrating” and a nightmare that actually held back a promising pool of talent.  I don’t know if I would go THAT far, since there were still some pretty impressive dunks on display, but the fact that the pool was divided into conferences and there was no true head-to-head competition to determine a FINAL champion seemed pretty idiotic to me.  Not enough to make me hurl my TV remote at the screen, mind you, but it did make me feel like the even had not finished.

Meanwhile, the Rising Stars game was divided into teams that allowed sophomores and rookies to play together (a la Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk), instead of pitting the various factions against one another.  The Three-Point Contest also threw the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference, but aside from that and the fact that the shooters were allowed to place an entire rack of money-balls wherever they wanted, this contest was basically a case of the same old, same old.
