    Yes before they changed format I think lines were as high as 13 or 14. Was at least one big upset. I think dogs have done very well but mostly around 6 point dogs winning.

    It was East vs West initially wasn't it? Only a few years that they did Sophs vs Rooks... The rooks would get drubbed and then the next year they'd come back much improved and with a chip on their shoulder, ready to take care of the next crop of innocent rooks ...and so the cycle repeated until the league realized it was a terrible idea.

    I bet Giannis could start a fire from scratch in the wild much quicker than LeBron though

    I actually like Gianni's team, Lebron has a lot of name value but Giannis has a decent team.... No one plays defense in this, so lookin at just offense, itll be a decent game

    4. KD/Curry (arguable)

    Only 3 -4times there's ever been 2 top 5 players on 1 team. And look what happened.

    Will await your response.
    Who said Westbrook is a top 5 player this season? Hes not even top 10- clearly George is having his best season And carrying OKC

    You sound ridicuous. According to you, Paul George is the best player in the world?

    Lmfao

    Only on SBR bro

    That's why he lost in the first round to the UTAH JAZZ?

    You're finished here after you said George better than Bron and KD. Show yourself the exit bro.

    That’s pretty much what Giannis said he was going to do predraft. Giannis is a very grounded superstar.

    He is like THE GUY you want in a game like this.

    You really think a spread could be 7 or 11 in a all star game ? Just idiotic

    He needed to give Giannis some help. Giannis team looks like shit on paper. Players that aren't ready for the spotlight even. Lebron's team will win by double digits easily. I'd be mad as hell if he picked me and that lineup.

    There's a reason they're not GMs anymore. SVG actually made a good move in drafting Dinwiddie, but then gave up on him too soon. Yikes!

    Love the under! Game finished low 290's last year. Guys seemed a bit more serious with the new format which produced actual "defense" at times in last year's game. Should stay under the total that continues to drop. Get it now!

    Ok sorry I did not start betting it until like 2004. I used to watch it in the 90's but I forgot. I wonder what the odds were on Brent Barry in the dunk contest

    Now totals are around 310. What is going on? 17 point difference? Books would allow you to middle them? Crazy

    Team Lebron was down 20 points at half but easily came back in the 2h and won by 14. They really didn't even work hard for that win. Clearly the better players were on Team lebron. This also went WAY over.
