Hey Clipper nation!
Just an idea I had while watching the Rising Stars challenge...since absoluatly ZERO defense was played and looked like nobody tried at all. What if the All Star Game counted for at least 1-2 games in the regular season standings? So if it happens that OKC/Heat meet in the finals and have the same record, the whichever conference won the ASG would have the home court advantage...Then it would definately get the players' competitive juices going since it could mean the difference between ring vs going home.
Let me know what you think!
