    Even though these are only All-Star Game records, Russ is right. Before, if someone scored 38 points in an all-star game, that was very impressive. But today, there is no defense whatsoever. 38 points is more like 20 points compared with the earlier eras of the NBA. If you look at all the of this past All-star game highlights, there is no help side or defensive effort. It’s nice to see windmills and powerful dunks, but we want to see a competitive basketball game with the league’s best players. Something should really be done about the lack of defensive effort in the All-star game. It was pathetic.

    Twenty points scored in a soccer game sounds impressive and might be a record somewhere, but if you were aware that there were no goalies in the game, it wouldn’t seem such an accomplishment. A record is part of an athlete’s legacy, and in a way, a means of remaining relevant or even immortal. It’s a shame that those of the past who actually earned a place in the record books have their names erased by hollow inflated statistics, not real accomplishments. What’s the honor in that? And then thereafter none of the records are viewed with as much respect because the whole thing has become tainted.
