Kevin Durant gives NBA great way to decide All-Star roster controversies
Injuries have limited Kevin Durant to just 22 games this season but he still thinks he belongs in the All-Star Game, and he's got a message for anyone who thinks they're more deserving.
Kevin Durant on his All-Star selection: "Whoever want my spot can play me one-on-one for it"— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) February 6, 2015
This is actually a great idea. What if the NBA used a one-on-one tournament to determine the last spot on the All-Star rosters?
Instead of having the commissioner chose between Damian Lillard and DeMarcus Cousins to replace Kobe Bryant, Lillard and Cousins could have settled it on the court. A matchup between a center and a point guard sounds unfair, but people would definitely watch.
