Star of the Timberwolves rejects idea of US versus. World All-Star matchup 

Some seek a U.S. vs. World NBA All-Star Game. All-Star Anthony Edwards is upset. 

A common way to "fix" the NBA All-Star Game is to employ an NHL structure and pit American and international players against each other.  

From 1998 to 2002, the NHL played North America vs. The World with adequate European players.

The NBA has international superstars, including the last five league MVPs, but the World Team lacks depth.  

Serbia's Nikola Jokic, Slovenia's Luka Doncic, Greece's Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Canada's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander started, while Cameroon's Joel Embiid was voted in (and is a naturalized U.S. citizen).  

Karl-Anthony Towns of Dominican Republic scored 50 bench points.Unfortunately, talent fades after that. 

The NBA used Team USA vs. Team World for the Rising Stars Game.  

Edwards' comment may have insulted Denver Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray, a Canadian.
