Draymond's hilarious reaction sums up Fergie's anthem fiasco

The NBA All-Star Game was supposed to start at 8pm on Sunday night in America.

It ended up starting at 8:41.

But what’s more, the 41-minute pregame show wasn't particularly well received.

Fergie’s national anthem was ... well, just watch Draymond Green's reaction in the video above, and listen for yourself.

Draymond couldn’t help but break into laughter, and a number of other players weren't far off.

The internet collectively cringed as Fergie got deeper and deeper into it.

Vergie’s version was not only much-maligned; it was loooooooong. And when it finally did wrap up, the internet had its collective say:

Once the game started, LeBron James scored 29 points and hit the go-ahead layup with 34.5 seconds to play, winning his third All-Star Game MVP award while his hand-picked team rallied to win an uncommonly-entertaining showcase, beating Team Stephen 148-145.

For the first time in the 67 editions of the All-Star Game, the league abandoned the traditional East-West format used since 1951 and allowed team captains James and Stephen Curry to choose their own rosters.

That twist turned a sometimes staid event into the world's richest pickup game, and the intrigue was reflected on the Staples Center court, where a real basketball game broke out.

LeBron's team even won an All-Star game with defence: on the final possession, James and Kevin Durant blanketed Curry, preventing the three-point-shooting superstar from getting off a potential tying shot.
