All-Star Rumors

“We’re all kind of great competitors and also great friends and I think prior to the All-Star games that have happened over the last couple years, there’s been some bad blood going into All-Star games and some matchups that people want to see,” Irving said. “It’s just the excitement of the weekend, and hopefully this new format gives that competitive drive because I know some people want to see some matchups and some teams, everyone’s hope of who they want to see go against one another. So I’m pretty sure as we all get closer to the weekend, we’ll put on a show, especially better than it was last year, in terms of being the high-scoring pace it was.”
“Obviously there’s a lot of people that are in favor of watching it live and there’s also people that understand the reasoning behind why it’s not this year,” Curry said. “I’m sure as this new format unfolds it’ll happen. I’ve always been a proponent of protecting the players. I know that’s the unpopular position, but in this day and age, we’re all grown men, we’re all All-Stars. We can handle it. You want to see how the whole format goes the first time. It sounds great that there won’t be any GIFs, so you won’t be ridiculed.”
