NBA All-Star draft NHL Style
What do you guys think? Which team wins?
Personally I'd like for the NBA to adopt the NHL style All-Star draft. I think it would be more interesting.
I like the East v West format. If they stuck to that along with the draft process it would've been better.
The NBA has started to go down this road with rising stars challenge. I think they should try it and maybe do it every 3 or 4 years. You could have the fans vote for the 2 captains of each team and have them vote for the last player in. Then at least out the borderline all stars the fans get to chose who they want to see and have the players and coaches chose the rest
This is obviously something that we are still more than few years away from, but I remember when the NHL did a North America vs a World game.
A US vs the world game would be pretty damn cool, although the World will probably need more time to catch up talent wise to the US.
The World could've put together a team like this for last year; would've been pretty interesting:
G Steve Nash/Tony Parker/Kyrie Irving
SG Manu Ginobili (yeah he was pretty hurt last year but SG/SF would be the weakest position on a world team)/Thabo Sefolosha
SF Luol Deng/Nic Batum
PF Dirk Nowitzki/Serge Ibaka/Al Horford
C Pau Gasol/Marc Gasol
Maybe ten years from now we'll see something like this. Who knows maybe even Greek players might make it under this format?
