Should We Give NEW All-Star Game Format a Chance?

Interesting points...the new format is odd though.

Not a fan especially when picking their own squads. Curry came out and said he’d pick teammates first and foremost. Can’t have someone whose likely to be a captain saying that. Favoritism is a real issue and although I applaud the nba for trying something new, much is still left to be done to make it competitive. Players need an incentive to play more than a shoot around game and glorified dunk contest

Curry picking his own teammates would be lame lol ...I'm still curious to see how it pans out.

Id be kind of curious to see how the first usage of this plan came out. What if all the players voted the same way as Curry, picking their own teammates, or even a high percentage of them did? Wouldnt it be cool if guys like Lebron, Durant, Westbrook or George didnt make the cut for the All-Star game? How fast do you think it would take the league to trash this system?

The NBA and all of its coaches are big on statistics, why doesnt the league come up with a standard player efficiency rating (PER) algorithm such as the one used by ESPNs John Hollinger, weblink below. Or maybe something less technical along the lines of the Bird System. I found a 1986 article that explores the Bird System and it rates pretty good. It starts out: Give a player one point for: every point he scores and every rebound, assist, steal or blocked shot he gets. Then subtract one point for: every missed shot or missed free throw, every personal foul and every turnover. Then, work out the player's average rating by dividing by the number of games he has played. Since the league is experimenting, why not base it on the players stats.

THE BIRD SYSTEM : By the Numbers, Boston's All-Star Has a Method of Picking Best NBA Players - latimes (Bird System)

Hollinger's NBA Player Stats - ESPN Insider - National Basketball Association - ESPN (Hollinger)

What is PER? (Hollinger)
