Here is what it would take. im sick of these All-Star weekends with crappy dunk contests. This year was a prime exapmle, a missed dunk basically won it for the other guy......ridiculous. i remember when the dunk contest used to be the thing. It was more poular then the All-Star game.
NBA All Star weekend has so much potential, here is a few ideas...........
1. 5 million dollars. thats right 5 million! First prize in the dunk contest gets 5 million, free and clear. taht might perk some interests, of the NBA stars dunking elite. You could easiyl raise that money to from any number of sponsors. Can you imagine what that might bring? VC, Kobe, T-Mac, KG, hell Earl Boykins, and whoever. $$$$ could make this an ultimate showdown once again, also the rules could stand to be tweaked a little bit.
2. We heard about something like this quite a few years ago, it was supposed to take place in the summer on pay per view, but i think it would be intriguing.........the One on One matchup tournament bracket. 8 players, bracket style for the one on one title. throw anyone in there, call your own fouls, play to 11. You could have crazy matchups like Duncan vs. T-Mac, KG vs. LeBron, even Shaq vs. Kobe????? Tell me that wouldnt be fun and interesting, quickness vs size, it may be cool to watch.
3. The 3 point contest.
A. Regular 3 point contest with a $$$$ prize. Same as suggested contest. But get some better talent, i dont want to see Raja Bell competing against an elite Peja, lets get the guns out there, Reggie Miller, Kobe, T-Mac, Nash, superstars that can shoot.
B. The Big man 3 point contest. i wanna see Yao, i wanna see Shaq, i wanna see Dunan, and i wanna see Oliver Miller. This would be competetitive and entertaining.
4. Get rid of anything that has to do with 2 ball, or whatever gay game they can come up with.
Id be interested to hear anyone else's ideas to make this weekend great again..........
