Get rid of the conference vs conference bullshit. Save it for Sunday. If you're so concerned about charity just make the players play for a charity of their choosing individually, which also allows players to choose issues that they are close to (i.e. if a player has a parent with cancer they pick cancer research). The team aspect ruined the dunk contest, and it could have fucked up the 3pt shootout if Beal didn't go off. Keep the pairs in the skill challenge though, just don't limit the guys to pair up in their own conference.
When the shooting stars competition is the second most exciting part of AS saturday night, you know you fucked up.
