The Eastern Conference is so terrible that the NBA has decided to change its All-Star Game format.
OK I’m kidding, but for the first time ever, there will be no Eastern Conference against Western Conference.

The game itself has been a joke over recent years with defense severely lacking so maybe this will spice things up.
The entire release can be seen below.
