NBA All-Star game neglects little guys in smaller markets

Russell Westbrook

Adding to their influence and mystique, Quavo of the Atlanta trio was named the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game MVP and fans can't help themselves with the reaction.

Pop star Justin Bieber is set to compete in the annual National Basketball Association all-star celebrity game. "Even among the greatest, to be the last picked among the greatest may be slightly embarrassing to some of the players".

However if you're looking to watch the game online, you may struggle, as the game is the sole property of TNT in the USA.

In lieu of this week's rookie rankings, we've chose to change things up a little bit in honor of NBA All-Star Weekend. Fans became furious with the league for not televising the All-Star Game draft. A former high school quarterback, he scored six of his team's first 11 points. Some writers have suggested to make the game have incentive such as playing for charity or, for some advantage later on in the season, Those talks haven't been met with much traction, but Silver made the executive move to double the prize of each players on the winning team from $50,000 to $100,000. During the 2015 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest in another bright lights, big city, setting of New York, LaVine gave the world the best dunk contest performance since Vince Carter wowed us all in 2000.

Team Lebron was the overwhelming favorite, but it got hit with the injury bug in the three weeks after the initial All-Star draft.

Jones said: "I just think once the game's done and dusted that's the game, you can't have retrospective refereeing of decisions being done".

Rex Kalamian, the Toronto Raptors assistant who coached Team World, praised the play of Denver Nuggets Canadian guard Jamal Murray, who had 21 points and seven assists for Team World. DeMarcus Cousins was set to start at center until his injury, while Prozingis of the Knicks, John Wall from the Wizards and LeBron's fellow Cav Kevin Love have all been ruled out as well.

But here's the rub: James' replacement players - Paul George, Andre Drummond, Goran Dragic and Kemba Walker - are all quite talented, and the National Basketball Association has sweetened the pot.

The star of this year's game, though, is probably Rachel DeMita.

Finally, San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge will sit out of the All-Star Game to get treatment on his left knee during the break. Quavo of Migos took home the coveted MVP trophy at the end of the night.
