1. Do you prefer the original setup, one 2 point money ball per rack, or this year’s setup, one rack entire dedicated to the money balls?

David Menze (Editor): Definitely the old setup. It was perfectly fine the way it was, why change the format? I guess I’m just old school.

Ryan Donoho (Co-Editor): I like this year’s set up. This will add a little more drama when it comes to final scoring. Before, you kind of knew whether someone was in or out of it after two or three racks. Now, if you get hot on that money ball rack, watch out.

Wesley Morton (Senior Writer): I really like this idea. The shooters know where they shoot best and if it is in one of the corner, it could really create more drama with all the money balls on the last rack.

William Perry (Staff Writer): New setup. This year’s All-Star Weekend seems to be all about adding an exciting twist to each event, and this is one I’m definitely on board with. It will favor the players who thrive under pressure and intensify the final rounds like never before.

Aaron Blue (Staff Writer): The contestants get a little more room for creativity and I think every shooting specialist knows where they are the best from and will take advantage of that.

Coverage of tonight’s festivities will be televised on TNT starting at 8 p.m. (ET) with the Three-Point Contest going down as the third event following the Skills Challenge and before the Slam Dunk Contest. Click here for the Three-Point Contest participants.
