Phil Jackson: All-Star Game Setting ‘Poor Example’ For Young Players

It’s no secret that the NBA All-Star Game is not an event in which defense is practiced. The NBA’s elite participate in the events of All-Star Weekend as a treat to the fans and they like to have a good time in the process, but Phil Jackson believes the style of play and serious lack of defense isn’t setting the right example for young players.

Jackson took to Twitter on Monday to vent his frustrations about the NBA All-Star Game:

Jackson has been more and more vocal on Twitter as of late talking about the NBA, college basketball, Lakers and even Kendrick Lamar. Initially, it didn’t seem like Twitter was the kind of medium that Jackson would use to express his opinion, but he’s ramped up his engagement and appears to like the interaction with fans.

As for Jackson’s criticism on the All-Star Game, it comes as no surprise after an all-offense display on Sunday in New Orleans. Multiple offensive records were set including most total points scored (318) breaking the record of 303 set back in 1987. No one wanted to play defense in this game and it showed.
