The battle professor was the best player on the floor of the NBA All-Star Game.
And it’s easy to see why.
His ability to hit shots, score and create for teammates was unrivaled.
But the NBA is not the only arena where a player has been subject to controversy.
On Wednesday, former NBA star Scottie Pippen was found guilty of child pornography.
The NBA is also in the midst of a sex scandal involving players.
Here’s a look at what is and is not acceptable in the game of basketball.

The NBA is in the middle of a scandal involving former players who were charged with child pornography, a crime that can carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
The league has said that Pippe, who retired in 2017, had not been aware of the charges.
“This was not the work of a few individuals in an isolated room,” the league said in a statement on Tuesday.
“Our hearts go out to Scottie and his family during this difficult time.”
The allegations have reignited a long-running battle in the NBA about whether or not players are subject to child pornography laws.
The debate was revived when the NBA released a statement earlier this month, saying it was “committed to upholding the privacy of all players and has been for many years.”
Players have been subject for years to the NBA’s “Pill Screen,” a system that asks players if they have seen any images of children and if they are aware of any inappropriate images.
Players are required to disclose the images and photos to the league and the Department of Justice, which then sends a report to the commissioner.
The league has been criticized for failing to take the issue seriously, and Pippes defense team said in court filings that the league’s “no-image” policy is not a good enough basis for a case.
Pippe’s attorney, Stephen V. Johnson, told ESPN that Pappe’s defense team’s argument is based on the “wrongness of the evidence” and that Papes defense “is simply not credible.”
“This is not about Pippi.
This is not an allegation about a few people in a room.
This has nothing to do with the NBA,” he said.”
It is about the NFL and the players and the league being held to a higher standard than any other sports league.”
Former player Mark Jackson was found not guilty of having child pornography on his hard drive after a jury convicted him of two counts of possession and distribution of child exploitation material.
Jackson is currently a coach at the University of Southern California.
Pappes defense attorney, Richard D. Dannenberg, told the AP that Pristin is not being treated as an NBA player because he is a college coach.
Dannenberg said Pipps defense team is “not concerned with the evidence against Pipping,” and they are focused on the NBA.
