The two time All-Star MVP has finally spoken out regarding the recent changes made to All-Star game format. Lebron James seems to fully support the changes the NBA made to the All-Star format last week due to criticism of the games competition.
Having been to the All-Star game for 13 consecutive seasons, Lebron commented on how he has seen the competition in weaken recently. The new format will allow the player with the highest number of votes from each conference to become a captain and select their team from the reaming All-Stars.
The All-Star Game has been pretty bad the last couple years just from a competition standpoint. Trying to switch it up. Just like how the dunk contest was at one point it was great, then it wasn’t so well, so they had to kind of switch it up. Then it got good, then it got bad and you switch it up again. You see what happens. It’s hard to say if it’s good or bad yet. We haven’t done it yet. February isn’t here yet so no one knows how good or how bad it’s going to be. But I like the change. Why not?
SF, Lebron James
Last season, Lebron averaged 26.4 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 8.7 APG while setting career highs in both rebounds and assists. It will be interesting to see how the selections pan out after monumental trades/ decisions have been made over the last few years.
