I wish someone would ask adam silver hard questions like why is it that every day there is a garbage game-changing refereeing decision, why after a game where players have been touching each other they get manhandled by security because they "shouldn't" hug or swap jerseys after a game, why players get fined for saying things that are unpopular, etc.

We will see what happens. The players are hired to play basketball and should stop complaining in my opinion. In one year they get paid more than most of us in can ever dream of making in a lifetime. That does not allow nba to do whatever they want with them ofcourse, but this is in their contract and they can adapt to their employee as everyone else does every day.

Everyone quick to talk trash on Silver because he's "hiding" that the NBA wants money... This is a fan driven sport, the only reason the All Star weekend makes the NBA money is because *yall* enjoy it and tune in. Silver isn't lying, they are doing the All Star Game because fans want it, that's also why they went to extraordinary lengths to continue NBA basketball at all. Yes they make money as well, but be real with yourself, you like that the NBA is active right now and if proper protocols are being followed there's no reason to be self righteous and pretend that the players are under an inhumane amount of risk. If a bus driver in Atlanta can drive hundreds of people around a year for $50,000 then an NBA player can play a single game with a dozen other people that have undergone the most extensive testing/ COVID protocols for $50,000. The NBA is a corporation, it like any other business wants to make money, but it only makes money when fans are willing to consume its content. This is a two way street. I personally think Adam Silver is a breath of fresh air, certainly better than commissioners like Goodell, everyone is looking to demonize someone these days.

Super! Georgia is going to do a Great Job and the All Star festivities are going to bring lots of happiness and joy to the World! Good Luck and Have Fun! PS There is no HORSE this go around🤷‍♂️ ...well i really enjoyed that event when you guys had it, (also it can be done remotely so thats cool 🙌) Hey you know what would be even cooler? If the name of the game was changed from horse to water, or river, or ocean...they are all 5 letters ✌️ On account ah when you play that game horse with your pals, and somebody has ✌️letters they are already know... Also when they have 3 letters we say some stuff thats not so they are already know... ( ive played the game a handful of familiar ) even 4 letters... now its plural, So if you think its a good idea to say those things when playing with your pals, or ladies or other people, than you keep doing that. If you think that ocean, river, or water is a good idea than play that way. my choice would B option B. 🙏 ☮️💜

Ratings are way down, advertising dollars are being wasted, games being rescheduled, players being pulled mid game per protocol restrictions, this game could be disastrous. But the almighty dollar has the final say, I guess

I mean it makes sense the NBA is a business and the all star game is probably the highest watched game aside from the finals. And I honestly don't think this game makes a difference when they'll still play 70+ games with different teams. I mean its their job as Chris Paul said

SO everyone brings up the obvious that its all about money with silver and the nba, but if these millionaire players really dont want to play and can afford to pay the fines why not make a real statement and just say NO i am not going to play. They can't because they are just as greedy for the money as is silver and the NBA. Without the players there is no game they have the power to be the masters in this situation instead they are choosing to be slaves to money. That's the real shame in all this.

I prefer Adam Silver to David Stern. Villain looking but just a nice capitalist. This is simply about the money. The same reason for the NBA playing in an epidemic; same reason why they made a freaking bubble in Disneyland. It’s pretty consistent. The owners gotta recoup lost revenues. The allstar game is their moneymaker- their single biggest global event. Players got every right to be upset but what did they really expect when they still playing games.

Adam looks scared, he knows that this should not be a thing just as much as anyone else but he is getting pressured from investors and he is worried about how this may look on his legacy as commissioner if he cancels these things. I would not villainize Adam though. He has done so many great things for the league. Too many to count so this one thing, It should not impact him that bad because he has still done amazing things for the NBA.

Ernie : Why do we have to have an All-Star Game Adam : Super Bowl had no problem It's obvious about the money Limit fans in the All-Star game? What was the limit for the Super Bowl? If everything shuts down you and I will have nothing to watch and comment about. It is what it is. If one sport shuts down then all sports should. Just like retail business etc during pandemic. Of course these big time investors, owners and sponsors want these games and events to keep running even if Covid cases goes up
