KUMAMOTO – The players didn’t take themselves too seriously during the second annual B. League All-Star Game.
Instead of focusing on lock-down defense for the full 40 minutes, they aimed to please. They put the focus on scoring points in a hurry with an emphasis on razzle-dazzle plays and lots of 3-point shots. In other words, it was standard fare for an All-Star contest. And on this day they often over-exaggerated their moves, such as a player falling backward after taking a mock charge or putting an extra dash of playground flavor to an inside move.
