    I quote:

    "There are only two major sports whose all-star games mean anything: the NBA and baseball . . . "


    Yes, we all know that next Tuesday's fracas determines the WS homefield edge . . . as far as I know,
    MLB is the only AS game bearing such a distinction . . . in addition to being the ONLY allstar event
    adults can watch without gagging.

    Rhoden's angle, here, would be . . . what?

    Perhaps that the games are during the season, when interest is still high, and not postseason like the Pro Bowl?

    NHL's midyear, too, so scratch that . . .

    He said major sports.

    And what meaning does the NBA all-star game have?

    What's the rest of the sentence? Does Rhoden explain what he means by that? I'd look myself, but I'm not willing to pay for Times Select.

    I take it to mean the only two All-Star games that are greatly cared about. Dunno what the angst is about him making that (likely correct) assertion.

    He leaves it dangling . . . he just keeps dribbling on about curtailing the idea of the fans having all the say in the allstar vote . . .

    I read the article about groupies in the new GQ and the NBA All-Star game has great meaning to them. A disturbing, depraved meaning, but it means something to them.

    It was a baseball column. No need for him to explain the NBA part of the equation.

    Nobody cares about ANY All-Star Game in ANY sport.

    Who won the hallowed NBA All-Star Game this season? The Pro Bowl? I don't know and I don't care, and you don't either.
