The NBA All-Star Game is definitely fun to watch but there is no doubt that it could use a few tweaks to make it even better.
Each year, the game features the best players in the league competing against each other for trophies and, most importantly, bragging rights.
But what if the approach to the game was radically changed?
Just imagine an All-Star Game with Team USA vs. Team World instead of Team LeBron vs. Team Durant 🔥

ClutchPoints has a suggestion: the website proposed an All-Star Game that consisted of Team USA versus Team World.
“NBA, we need this!” ClutchSports said, begging to make it happen.
You can see why this idea would be such a smart one for the league because the NBA is now filled with more international players than ever before.
The players listed above are just the tip of the iceberg – there are even more foreign-born superstars in the mix and more on the way.
So it would make for a very competitive and fun game.
The last four MVP trophies have gone to intentional players, with Jokic winning two back-to-back and Antetokounmpo doing the same in 2019 and 2020.
This just shows how much the league is transforming to a truly international one.
It’s still called the National Basketball Association but it’s now a worldwide group – and all the better because of that fact.
The chances of the NBA changing up the All-Star Game any time soon are slim but if they do, they should follow ClutchSports’ advice.
