This new format where the “captains” or the players from each conference with the most fan votes pick their team could prove to be very interesting. Simply because the fans will have an opportunity to see a combination of players they haven't seen before. This adds a level of mystery to the game that has become a bit predictable. Imagine seeing Curry and LeBron on the same squad.
The players this year are playing for a local charity and this aspect will add some stakes to the game that fans have not seen before. Players will now have the motivation to win the game for their respected charity, giving them some an authentic push to become more competitive. The players will likely still have fun on the court but the end of the game will now be more interesting to watch for fans.
1) Los Angeles:
California will likely add to the scale of the game as a whole. Expect for the stands to be filled with movie stars and celebrities which will only make the game more interesting. “Laker Land” will most likely bring out basketball legends like Kareem and Magic to help add some star power to the All-Star festivities. This venue will undoubtedly give the NBA the publicity it needs for its new All-Star game format
