Ranking the 'Watchability' of the 2014 NBA All-Stars
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 NBA All-Star Game will be all about entertainment. 

A few years from now, you won't remember the final score. You might not even remember that the Western Conference won, although that technically isn't guaranteed to happen since the East could pull off the big upset.

However, you will remember the highlights. If there's a moment like Tracy McGrady throwing the ball to himself off the backboard, Kyrie Irving crossing up Brandon Knight (which happened in the Rising Stars Contest, but still...) or Kobe Bryant actively trying to slow down LeBron James, it will be ingrained in your memory banks for quite some time.

So, which players are most likely to create those highlights?

We're talking about dunks, difficult jumpers, three-point barrages and dribble moves that leave your jaw on the floor. Anything that's going to entertain you is relevant.

There's no scientific way to rank the watchability of these players, because it's an inherently subjective exercise. These are simply my rankings, and I'll acknowledge that I have certain stylistic biases, like preferring guard play to big-man play.

Of course, you have your own as well, so don't hesitate to leave your own rankings in the comment section.
