Wilbon: We’re five days from the NBA All-Star Game and I’m not feeling the love. I’m not sensing that people, even real pro basketball fans, are dying to see it. Oh, they’re down for the All-Star Weekend parties, for hanging out in the French Quarter, for craziness up and down Bourbon Street, for supper at Emeril’s. But the game itself? It’s, shall we say, a little stale. As a matter of fact the least exciting thing about All-Star Weekend is the All-Star Game.
/New Orleans rocks – but what about the game?
Wilbon wants to see U.S. vs. the World.
What I want to see is the best players in the world go at each other, to play not for show but for pride.
