There are a lot of things that need to be fixed about All-Star Weekend. The seating costs too much. Damian Lillard should've made the team without someone needing to get injured. We're still wondering what happened during last year's Slam Dunk Contest.
But while some may be some long-term or unsolvable problems, there are others that can be easily remedied. For example, the best way to fix the Skills Challenge is to, well, be done with it all together. It exists, but there's not much to say about it. It's a series of practice drills at All-Star weekend. That's it.
And yes, the Skllls Challenge does require real skills, but none of those skills are utilized in particularly exciting fashion.
