On Thursday, the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association agreed to host the 2021 All-Star Game in Atlanta. It’s a decision that is clearly not supported by De’Aaron Fox.

Ahead of the 2020-21 season, the NBA canceled the All-Star Weekend Celebrations for health reasons related to COVID-19. However, the All-Star Game will help generate additional revenue for a league that doesn’t have fans at every venue.

That being said, Fox is not on board the NBA, which is an All-Star Game this year organized. The Sacramento Kings guard didn’t hold back when asked about the league’s latest decision.

« I’ll be brutally honest, I think it’s stupid, » said Fox. « If we have to wear masks and do all of this for a regular game, what is the point in bringing back the All-Star Game? » De’Aaron Fox on the possibility of an All-Star game this season: « I’ll be brutally honest, I think it’s stupid. If we have to wear masks and do all this for a regular game, what is it about? » bring back the all-star game? « 

Fox is probably not the only player who thinks this is an all-star game played in the middle of a pandemic.

To make sure this year’s event doesn’t trigger an outbreak, the NBA will fly all players selected for this weekend privately to and from Atlanta.

Once the All-Star game is over, the NBA will take a three-day hiatus before going back to business, which will be a quick turnaround for players but they knew this would be the case due to the shortened season.
