Default Replace the Dunk competition with a one on one challenge

dunk competition overall was bad, so why not replace it with a one on one challenge with the top players, imagine lebron against kobe or durant against melo

Will never, ever happen. Too much pride, and ego on the line.

Fan boys would be on edge for weeks, and months.

Rose/Westbrook
Kobe/Wade
Lebron/Durant/Melo
Aldridge/love/Bosh
Dwight/Bynum/Lopez

Would end up with something stupid like Jennings vs Crawford in the finals.

I don't think it'd ever end up being as cool as we like to picture it'd be. I see a lot of jumpers, a lot of 50/50 effort, and a lot of wasted time for everyone involved. The NBA's old 1-on-1 contest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk9WhHFhLus

Best part? $15,000 in the form of one-dollar bills in a duffel bag for the winner.

Irving would win and add another all-star event to his belt.
