What was the most “All Star” All-Star NBA game ever?

The now defunct All-Star Legends games, which featured older retired players, some of whom were obviously out of shape, some of whom could still ball

the 1984 All Star Legends game featured Pete Maravich, Oscar Robertson, John Havlicek, Nate Thurmond, Wes Unseld, Rick Barry, Hal Greer, Earl Monroe, Jerry West, Sam Jones, Dave Debusschere, Zelmo Beaty, Tom Heinsohn, Bob Pettit, Connie Hawkins, Dave Bing, Dolph Schayes and even Bill Sharman! (who retired in 1961!)

Pete Maravich and Rick Barry were the leading scorers for their teams.

That’s an astounding 18 Hall of Famers in a single All-Star game.

FYI I wish they would bring this back, the idea of retired legends coming back to play in a single game.. Michael Jordan coming back to play an NBA game alone even at 55 years old would be quite a spectacle. Magic Johnson could probably still play. Karl Malone still looks as fit as he did when he was playing. Allen Iverson, possibly Shaq, John Stockton, Isiah Thomas, Gary Payton, Chauncey Billups, Chris Webber, David Robinson, Scottie Pippen, Tracy McGrady, Paul Pierce, Hakeem Olajuwon, Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, Patrick Ewing, Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan could probably all still play.
