    I think they should.. that would be so cool to watch. I loved watching the NHL players draft, you get two very unique teams.. besides the captains picking countrymen and teammates..

    Think it could work with hoops? :)

    I have no idea what you're even talking about. I guess I'll have to do some research to see what it is. :lol:

    Oh.. :lol: Well, there are two captains, and each take turns drafting one of the selected/fan voted all stars. They have to have picked three goalies by round 10, and all six defense men by round 15.. It's a "live" fantasy style draft. A great Idea imo..

  4. I had no idea what you meant either lol. but yea that sounds like a very good idea. Personally I think the Slam Dunk Contest means more than the actual game. and the Pro Bowl sucks. just throwing that out there.

    Well, I just saw today that they're doing this with the rookie game..

    Shaq and Barkley will be picking players, mixing rooks with second year players.. Im guessing if thats a hit, next year the real all star game will be the same way?.
     
  6. Hopefully, I just wish they could make it mean something. No one plays defense.
