Why do you care? You care because there are three Utah Jazz players in the #BBVARISINGSTARSCHALLENGE2016 game. You want to see Raul Neto running up and down the floor, while Rodney Hood and Trey Lyles get to have a little fun. You're only young once, and at best, you're only in this exhibition game twice. They deserve to be there, and it will be exciting. More exciting than the All-Star game for sure because these kids are very happy to be there and put on a show. Also, Andrew Wiggins is really going to be the MVP because, well, you know...

Why do you care? Well, you care about of the little fun games. The Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest, and Slam Dunk showcase the best of the best at what they do. Well, that's the case with the three point contest, not so much with the slam dunk, but what can you do?  You may also care for the D-League All-Star Game. Erick Green was selected, but replaced because he was called up to the NBA. Elliot Williams (former Jazzman) was also selected, but isn't even in the league anymore. Uh, Jimmer Fredette? Watch this game if you like Jimmer.
