Should we add Knockout to NBA All-Star Weekend? This is an important question many, I think, should be asking.
In seasons prior, the league had the Shooting Stars Competition. That was the competition dominated by Chris Bosh & Co. that featured an NBA player, a WNBA player, and a legend all competing against each other on teams from various areas of the floor.
But Knockout (or Bump) is a favorite on the blacktop. If we want to add some of the frivolous fun back into All-Star Weekend, why not keep it simple and go with a game every ball player has played?
The suggestion from a reader via Twitter this week added a twist: should we go with elite shooters, or with terrible ones? Would you rather see a game of knockout featuring Stephen Curry and James Harden? Or do you want to watch Andre Drummond and Mason Plumlee try to battle it out for extra comedy?
I swayed back and forth on this before finally coming to a decision in this week’s video Q&A session. I also covered topics including:
- The best basketball book to read on public transportation
- Who is the best baseball player in the NBA?
- Who is the best baseketball player in the NBA?
- What my favorite “sneaky” skill is of an NBA player
