Adam Silver speaks on NBA players’ incentives to compete at the All Star games.

Over the years, fans have watched the All Star games gradually evolve into a less competitive experience. This season, the East defeated the West 211-186 and fans were quick to complain about the lack of defence and general competition in the acclaimed All-star games. ESPN presenter, Michael Wilbon however asked the NBA President, Adam Silver about the possibility of a US versus International All-star game and its potential to brew a more competitive atmosphere. On this, Adam Silver noted that the league might have just gone past the point where players and teams are incentivized to play a competitive All-Star game in the middle of the season.
