    CNN is reporting that the helicopter missed clearing the mountain by just 20-30 feet and that the helicopter didn't have some safety features the FAA recommend but don't require.

    tbh I'm a bit confused by so many people who are angry that the NBA went ahead and played the games on the day of the crash

    I would have thought cancelling basketball games for him is the absolute last thing that Kobe would have wanted.

    Kobe the player would have played a game during the cruxifixction of Christ.

    Kobe the retired player ABSOLUTELY would want the entire league to stop in his honor.

    I think it's more that the players and staff themselves may need the time to grieve.

    They should agree to play less defense than usual to put up outrageous numbers in honor of kobe

    I think it's a pretty common refrain that a lot of people don't watch because the players don't consider it a real game, so nobody plays full out. It might as well be a shooting contest.

    Not sure the changes really help, but I can see the thinking behind it. You imagine that for a game you don't care about you will probably coast for 43 minutes then if things are close enough maybe put in some effort for 5ish minutes for bragging rights. Now there's basically 4 mini-games (can win each quarter), so maybe you get more like 20 ish minutes of effort. I don't think it will work, but I can understand why they thought it might.

    The MLB All-Star game had a similar issue and they had the terrible idea of linking it to home-field advantage for the World Series.

    The changes may not work but continuing to do the same thing as always won't work either. Just keep trying new stuff each year until something sticks.

    24 points in a quarter is low enough for this type of game that it will encourage good defensive play at least

    AAAAA!!! PLAAAYGUUU!!!!

    Lillard has been unreal this past week. I mean he has had streaks of mvp level play before, but this is something else. Too bad it takes him being other worldly to even make us look decent.

    Also, Whiteside had 30 pts, and it still kind of felt like he was a liability out there. I feel for the heat fans that lived with his play for so long.

    He can’t be stopped. 2 defenders. 3 defenders. He could probably score 50 pts right now playing with 4 fans.

    Hard to win with 7 players, but I wanted this one.

    Plus it always puts extra salt in the wound to lose on a missed call.

    I'm always surprised when I see Dwight Howard is a laker again.

    I didn’t watch any all star events. You talking about the actual all star game, and having the 4 quarters be 4 mini games?

    Just the last quarter with the play to a final number, or where the other quarters actually interesting as well?

    The first half was pretty much the standard all-star game we've come to see. The 3rd quarter it picked up some and then the 4th quarter was competitive the entire time. It was fucking great. Best all-star game I've ever seen and probably the best one in a while I'd imagine.

    I feel like players came to play in the all star game in the 80's to the early 90's.
