Don’t: Have An Old Timers Game
Paying homage is one thing, but one of the worst ideas the Stern threw out there for ASW was his old-timers game. A bunch of 50-plus people trotting up and down the court is never good, even if it is former NBA legends. After an entire lifetime of staying in shape, most players tend to let themselves go a little. It’s never a pretty site to see your favorite legend get carried off the court when his body can no longer do what his mind still tells him to do.
Unless, of course, it’s Dr. Jay who can still dunk at age 63.
