"I would do something really crazy with the All Star Game. This is something I've thought about a lot. I would like to see the fans vote for all the All Stars. Then you put them in a pool, and you take the two coaches and they draft the team right there, kind of like you used to do on a schoolyard. It wouldn't have anything to do with (Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference), it would just be all All-Stars, and then the coaches would decide which players they would take. Someone said (to me), "Well, whoever got taken last would be embarrassed." I thought, "OK, that's a good thing, because everybody's going to want to try and play hard."
