NHL All-Star Team Selection

I barely even pay attention to Hockey, and I'm not gonna watch the All-star game, but don't you think the system they are using to divide the teams is awesome?

Zdeno Chara and Daniel Alfredsson picked from the pool of All-Stars Playground-style until all 38 guys had been selected.

I know it would be confusing as you wouldn't be able to remember who is on which team all the time, but wouldn't this be a cool system for the NBA to try? I am certainly intrigued.

I think the NHL system is cool

Do not know if it would work in the NBA, though. Much fewer players, plus I do not think the positions would work as smoothly as they do in the NHL. Would be really interesting to see who got picked where and to maybe split up the conferences a bit. But, logistically, do not see this working in the NBA.

It would be cool to see who got picked when, but the reliance on size in basketball would probably be more of an issue than in hockey. Works really well for hockey, though. They also had North America versus the World in hockey, but again, that works better for hockey than it does for basketball. Really like the concept, but just have doubts about how it would translate to the NBA.

That narrows the list of

That narrows the list of candidates down quite a bit, leaving really only two teams who look like a big enough mess to contend for the most ping pong balls in next year’s lottery: the Houston Rockets and the Orlando Magic.
