Before the dunk contest my favorite part of the night Curry v Sabrina in the 3 point shootout. Just an absolutely brilliant way to market the WNBA

Way more competitive than I anticipated. I thought she'd take it when I saw her round and score. Steph started a little slow.

I think Mac McClung should be on an NBA roster. I'm not sure why he is not based upon what little I have seen of him.

There is a reason that McClung is not on an NBA team. He's not being shut out for some mysterious reason. He's got a single skill. Only the best of the best make the NBA. He's just not a good enough overall basketball player.

Lmao because he sucks at absolutely everything outside of dunking.

2 games played for the 76ers last year don't look terrible.

I'd take a flyer on McClung, especially on a two-way contract. The stats and athleticism are there.

I feel like if he was any good he would already be on a roster…

McLung was the G-League rookie of the year 2 years ago, which is before anyone knew of him as a phenomenal dunker. He has talent but he's young and is a developmental project. I'm not saying he'll ever be a star or even a starter but I have a hard time believing he offers significantly less than other teams 12-15 man as well as their Two-Way deals.

A lot of players have been passed over in the NBA before they find the right opportunity. McClung might be one of them.

They should call this the All-Star Show. Game implies competitiveness.

I can remember when the NBA All-Star game was highly-anticipated.

Those days are long gone, just like with the NFL Pro Bowl. But at least with the Pro Bowl you can understand the desire to not get hurt. The NBA All-Star Game has just become an embarrassingly-bad pickup game.

I just watched a couple plays… saw a half court shot with 20 seconds on the clock and a “fast break” where only 2 plays bothered to get back and then botched a lob.

Awful.

Just get rid of this trash.

Talk about no defense. What they should do is cash bonuses for every block and steal.
