"I think myself and Steph took it upon ourselves when we made a decision to do this format, and we had to change the landscape of how the All-Star Game was played".
Black athletes have been hearing a version of "shut up and dribble" for years, and numerous NBA's most revered figures have found a way to ignore it.
There was sufficient doubt the novelty of a new format would translate to the court after tip-off. Klay Thompson also lead Team Stephen with 15 points at half.

Fans hoping for a more competitive game under the new format, especially with boosted player incentives (player and charity payouts), would not be disappointed down the stretch. "It's an awesome accomplishment, an wonderful honor, but if you're thinking about it in the perspective of getting rest and really taking advantage of the full slate of All-Star break, it doesn't really start for us until right now". Team Stephen was led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden, Joel Embiid and Demar DeRozan. Team LeBron overcame Team Curry in one of the most closely and intensely fought All Star Games in a very long time.

Last week Silver mentioned that Steph Curry was one of the players who did not want the draft to be televised, saying, "Let's see how it goes, and then we can talk about televising it.'" However, after seeing how everything played out it appears a majority of players feel the 2019 All-Star Draft should be open to the public.
Each member of the winning team will receive $100,00, while the losing squad will each get $25,000. "At that point you're just trying to make a play, and nothing really surfaced". Sadly, Team Lebron suffered big losses with John Wall, Demarcus Cousins, Kevin Love and Kristaps Porzingis going down with injuries. It's about playing good basketball every single night.
Russell Westbrook then got a layup with 10.7 seconds remaining to put them up by three.
It frustrated players as well, who universally stood behind James and Durant.
In the previous round, Sky faced an over 80 percent increase in price after BT entered the market with its own sports TV plans. It said it will show "Saturday tea time matches, Super Sunday, Monday Night Football and Friday Night Football".
Asked what their plans did involve, she said: "There's something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for". The Spice Girls split in 2000, but have since performed together on a number of occasions, including a 2007 world tour.
Or Friday at Riviera, where boisterous fans inserted themselves into the action on the field. "It was just one of those things". Whoever is teeing off at 8:30 in the morning doesn't get that and can just go about his business and do his thing.
