This game use to be exciting once, there's just not enough legit superstars anymore. In their early 2000's the NBA had T-MAC, Kobe, Vince Carter, Shaq, AI, KJ, Chris Webber, Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire, all big time Superstars still peaking in their prime playing in the Allstar game. We just don't see that many exciting players anymore in the NBA, except for KD, LBJ, and Paul George right now.
