“It really got competitive and that’s the way it should be,” Stockton said. “That’s when it really gets fun.”

According to Klauke, even All-Star Saturday in Utah was a bit historic.

Cleveland’s Mark Price won the 3-point contest and Miami’s Harold Miner won the slam-dunk contest, earning the overstated nickname “Baby Jordan.”

The Legends Game was also played, but for the last time. A continuous outbreak of injuries forced league officials to replace it with the Rookie Game, which eventually evolved into today’s Rising Stars Challenge.

Along with analyst Dave Blackwell, Klauke did a local radio broadcast of All-Star Saturday — the first time it had ever been attempted.

“The NBA broadcasting people were hanging around, listening in,” Klauke said. “They had us send in the tapes and something must have clicked because, the following year in Phoenix, they did it on national radio for the first time.”
