All-Star Saturday Needs Major Changes?

There was a time when All-Star Saturday night was the most exciting night of All-Star weekend and the Slam Dunk contest was the premiere event of the evening.
But those days are gone, and if Saturday’s shameful production at the Amway Center is any indication of things to come, they may never make a return — which might be best for everyone involved.
All-Star Saturday Night has outlived its usefulness and overstayed its welcome, and it’s time for it to go. After this year’s debacle, the decision must be made that the event can no longer exist its current form, and until the league addresses the glaring problems and gives fans and players a reason to care, the downward spiral will only continue.
This year’s production had everything you never wanted in an All-Star weekend event. A staggeringly unimpressive collection of no-name players. An apathetic, half-full crowd. Sky-high ticket prices and a litany of cringe-worthy gimmicks.
