The funny pregame video Steve Kerr showed the West All Stars before the game? I'm told it was video of all of them on draft day. Went over really well & broke what had been a very tense scene

I know I am late to the party and sound like the grumpy old man on this, but the NBA All-Star game is just stupid the way it is played now.

There has been talk about DeMarcus Cousins possibly being traded. He only played two minutes tonight. No other active player played less than 13 minutes tonight.

Last 5 minutes of the all star game should be a blast as Westbrook and Anthony Davis vie for MVP honors at a record scoring clip. Davis has already broken Wilt Chamberlain's all time scoring mark and is at 52 and counting. Interestingly, Steve Kerr has paved the way for Davis to take MVP honors by benching Westbrook who has scored 4- on 26 shots.

Fans behind press row begin chanting "Dee-Fense!" Clippers C DeAndre Jordan stands up and tells them "No!" and begs them to quell their excitement about an element of basketball rarely ever seen in an All Star game.

There is a small, clearly misguided group of fans at the Smoothie King Center chanting "DE-FENSE". There has been just about none of that on the court tonight.

Sixers rookie star Joel Embiid brushes up against greatness, exchanging hugs with Philly legend Julius Erving at halftime. Erving took the court to be honored along with other NBA royalty including Bill Russell, Magic Johnson and Allen Iverson. Magic warmly embraced LeBron James and Kyle Lowry, a kid from North Philly, paid his respects to A.I.

Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens' pregame speech to the East All-Stars: "It's an honor for us to be here and we appreciate the opportunity to be here with you guys. I get asked all the time about, ‘What inspired you to get into coaching? And what inspired you to want to do this?' And the truth of the matter is nobody is inspired to get into coaching, it just means we weren't good enough to be players. And ultimately the people that inspired me as a kid were the Reggie Millers, were the Larry Birds, were the Magic Johnsons, the Michael Jordans of our era — the guys that are sitting in your shoes. And so I just want to say thank you for the opportunity to share the day with you. And also I recognize the fact of what you mean to those kids."
