Bones bitches his way out of Denver because he doesn't want to sit behind Jamal Murray, ends up on a much worse team and he's gonna be sitting behind washed Westbrook. Serves him right.

Reggie Jackson should run the 2nd unit better anyway. Bones is more of a long term project as a true point guard, though he is definitely a much better shooter. Jackson will attack the rim, run the pick and roll with Bryant, and get open threes for Brown and Braun.

Nuggets look to have the strongest roster they've ever had. Getting Jackson and Thomas Bryant pushes the washed guys (Jeff Green, Ish Smith, DeAndre Jordan) to the very end of the bench and lets Zeke Nnaji move from C back to PF and Bruce Brown from PG back to his natural wing position. And Jackson is a massive defensive upgrade over Bones as well.

Seeing the way he play in the suns game , seem like to dance with the ball , lack court vision and mediocre performance, joker makes the game easy for everyone, hyland not going to work in Ty Lue’s system. Poor man’s Jordan pool ? Denver definitely upgrade with Reggie’s Jackson and he will benefit more playing with Jokic .

Jackson will be playing most of his minutes with Thomas Bryant rather than Jokic.

WTF was up with Vin Diesel at the All-Star Game? Came off like a day one debate participant, just embarrassing. Maybe he saw Rihanna stink up the SB halftime show last week and went hold my beer.

Edit: LeBron might stop winning these things if the opposing captain stops drafting like an idiot.

Or just take Tatum I guess. "I'll give you Fultz for three first rounders and Tatum." Tim Connelly says plz keep this in mind when evaluating Kessler plus one million picks for Gobert.

The all star game has sucked for a long time though. Fools are on vacation, after all, not trying to play D on vacation.

Worst All-Star game ever. There's more defense in practice games.
Already loved Coach Malone but I think I'd down and die for dude following "that was the worst basketball game ever."

MacLung vs four G-Leaguers in the dunk contest until the prize money gets upped to $10 million will be awesome.

You all got what you deserved if you watched the All Star Game. You knew going in it was going to suck.

If you watched it, you were one of the handful that did. It was the lowest watched All-Star game in history...much lower than last year which until now, was the lowest watched one.

I keep skipping it until they bring East vs. West back.

There is no fixing it. The format is irrelevant. All All-Star games in every sport suck 100% of the time.

They didn't used to. Remember how exciting NBA All Star games were back in the 90s? Players played full on with an edge. The West beating the East, or vice versa, meant something to them. Even in the 00s they were still an enjoyable watch.

Ever since it became Team Lebron vs Team whatever, it's been cheapened to be a meaningless scrimmage.

The format needs to revert to West vs East, fan voting needs to go away, and there needs to be some teeth to it winning.

As far as All Star Games go, only MLB has a 'true' format in American vs National where scores are low since the pitchers try their best not to get humiliated so many go all out. NFL's Pro Bowl is a laughingstock, NBA: let's see if we can break scoring records while no one watches. NHL isn't bad: Two games with 2 ten minute halves between the 4 divisions (3 on 3 play). The two winners then play each other for the win.

Rose colored glasses. You were younger and less jaded then. 90s All Star games sucked ass too.

They're meaningless. You may as well be watching practice.

Nah. I watched an old one from 93 on Youtube not too long ago and they definitely played harder than they do now. There was pride behind East vs. West. There was still some holding back just so players wouldn't get hurt, but nowhere near what is happening now.

The best All Star game in history is still worse than a random regular season game. They shouldn't even have them.

Seeing the best of the best playing with/against each other is still a great draw, even if it's milder than a regular season game.

It just needs to not be whatever the fuck that last game was, and has been for a while now.

Yeah it a brotherhood now they dribble the ball out and start shaking hands and hugging, there are like 1 minutes remaining WTF fanduel being a sponsor’s. I preferred the old rival on the 90’s bulls vs Detroit .
