    Default All-Star Festivities 2016: Additions

    What additions do you hope TL brings to the All-Star game festivities in 2016?

    Some ideas:
    ~ 1on1 Half-Court Battle
    ~ 3on3 Half-Court Battle (you could mix veterans with current players: MJ, Kobe, Bird, Miller, Lebron, Magic)

    This would be fun. I like the idea of bringing veterans back. But any kind of a physical requirement would eliminate Magic, Barkley and many others

    Great idea, but harder to put into practice. A lot of these guys won't come back, and those are the ones you'd want to see the most. MJ/Bird, for example would never come back to do this. They have too much pride (and take themselves too seriously) to step out there and get schooled by someone half their age.
    your pal,

    The more I think about it the more boring 1-on-1 sounds

    and 3-on-3 they basically have already. 1 retired player, 1 WNBA star and 1 celebrity. They just need to stop letting football players join as the "celebrity", it doesn't count when 6'5 freak athlete Terrell Owens is taking on the guy from Scrubs.

    Non basketball entertainment....using the city/state/province of teams that made the semifinals in '15.

    a) the highest selling music talent/group from each team location
    b) the "dance pak" of each team
    c) the mascot

    Have a competition for each grouping.

    Let the crowd decide the winner (noise meter).

    I'd love to see 1 on 1 at the all-star game, but I don't think any events could be added by 2016--the all-star events are listed in the CBA. Any additions would have to be negotiated in the next one (2017 at the earliest) or in a special negotiating session.
