What's old may be new again for the NBA.
According to Shams Charania and Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic, the league is considering returning the All-Star Game format to one between the best players of the Eastern Conference and Western Conference as soon as the 2023-24 season.
The idea has been discussed at recent board of governor and general manager meetings as the NBA and NBPA attempt to make the game more competitive.
While the NBA All-Star Game has reached the point where there is little defense played until the closing stretch, the player draft that is currently in place was a way to generate fan interest.
The current system features the players from each conference who received the most fan votes as the two captains.
