Ben Golliver and Michael Pina open by cataloguing the hurt feelings from superstars over the NBA's All-Star Game plans. LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Giannis Antetokounpo, James Harden and Kevin Durant have all expressed their frustrations with the NBA's All-Star plans or health protocols since Thursday. How should NBA Commissioner Adam Silver respond to this outpouring of angst and what are his options? From there, Ben and Michael go through the ballot to make their All-Star starter selections. James Harden or Bradley Beal? Luka Doncic or Damian Lillard? Kawhi Leonard or Paul George? After the All-Star talk, they shift gears to discuss Michael's recent piece on Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox. What's behind his strong recent play? The episode closes with a discussion of this season's many 50/40/90 shooting candidates and an Open Floor-related punching incident during a South London fun run.
