Leonard is crazy! Uncover the NBA All-Star Insider! Clippers championship is completely cool

After the All-Star break, Clippers star Leonard surprised many fans with a remark. "The NBA president wants every player to play as hard as they can, and it doesn't seem to me to be useful," he said. The players are afraid of injury, so they can't work. It's a business league and there are so many gambling factors involved......"

In public, players dare to say that Leonard should be the first to bet on NBA games! When Xiaoka finished speaking, many fans felt that the Clippers were going to be targeted by the league, and this season's championship was going to be gone. In this year's All-Star Game, Xiaoka played 10 minutes and 12 seconds, scored 5 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist on 2-of-4 shooting, and was also in a paddling state.

Some fans may question: Xiaoka himself is paddling, why do you want to criticize others for not working? Everyone should remember that the best All-Star game in recent years is 2020, Leonard won the MVP 30+7+4. So it's not that Xiaoka doesn't want to play All-Stars, he just doesn't want to play All-Stars with "no confrontation".

Although the All-Star ratings are not yet out, there is another statistic that you can refer to to prove how boring this year's All-Star is. In the 1993 All-Star Game, both teams committed 62 fouls, in the 2003 All-Star Game (Jordan's last), both teams committed 37 fouls, and in the 2013 All-Star Game, both teams committed 24 fouls.

The 2023 All-Stars, that is, last year, the two teams committed a total of 7 fouls! Both teams had one foul each in the first half, one foul in the West in the second half, and no fouls in the East. It's all three-pointers (the two teams have made a total of 168 three-point shots), it's all eye-to-eye defense, and there's no physical confrontation at all.

Although Lillard won the MVP, he said: "200 points in a single game is a bit much, and it doesn't seem like we are competitive. I think there are some changes that can be made to the All-Star Game, but I'm not sure how. NBA celebrity Bill Simmons wrote, "We spend so much time voting for All-Stars, but the game always sucks!"

The All-Star winning side will receive $100,000 per player and the losing side will receive $25,000 each, and these stars may not be able to see the 75,000 difference. Clippers reporter Farbod Esnaashari wrote: "The All-Star is a real disappointment. They've been paid ridiculously high salaries, but they don't care what they bring to the fans. ”

Former NBA player Arenas suggested: "We should do 1v1 and 2v2, let the players speak with their talent, and the winner will get a million-dollar prize." Da Baibian, who has just retired, said: "East VS West, the winner should get the home advantage in the finals, and the players will work hard to win the game." ”

Da Baibian's suggestion, in fact, many fans have also said. Timberwolves star Edwards, after the All-Star break, said, "I've never seen an All-Star as competitive, it's a vacation." I don't think anybody wants to compete here. ”
