With voting for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game ending today, we'll soon find out which players will be representing the Eastern and Western Conferences next month in Houston.
However, let's imagine for a moment that the NBA All-Star Game took a page out of the handbook for baseball's Midsummer Classic. What if every team in the league had one (and only one) All-Star? Managing 15 players on each side would make life difficult for the game's two head coaches, but it would create interest among fans of all 30 of the league's teams.
Invariably, some deserving candidates would be left out, but it would be an interesting twist on a contest that is in desperate need of a jolt of energy.
Note: All statistics are current as of Jan. 12.
