    The starting lineups for the NBA All-Star Game will be announced Thursday, and unless Cavaliers fans do some serious ballot-box stuffing in the closing days, Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving will not be among them.

    In the most recent results announced by the NBA on Jan. 3, Irving ranked fourth in voting for the Eastern Conference backcourt, behind Miami's Dwyane Wade, Boston's Rajon Rondo and Brooklyn's Deron Williams. Voting continued until Monday, and the top two backcourt players will be the starters.

    Irving is still holding out hope NBA coaches will select him as a reserve. The reserves will be announced Irving is still holding out hope NBA coaches will select him as a reserve. The reserves will be announced Jan. 24.

    "I've just been trying to play like an All-Star this whole entire season, trying to keep that mind-set," Irving said before the Cavs faced the Portland Trail Blazers in The Rose Garden on Wednesday night. "Whatever happens, happens. Obviously, anything could happen in the next month, so I'm just going to continue to play the way I've been playing and try to get my team wins."

    Irving was the MVP of the Rising Stars game during All-Star Weekend last season, and when asked if he'd like to return and play in the regular All-Star Game this season, his answer was obvious.

    "Yeah, absolutely," he said Wednesday. "But that comes with playing every single night and just doing what I do."

    Cavs coach Byron Scott was asked what he thought Irving's chances were this season and whether he should make it.

    "I don't know what his chances are, and I don't know if I think he should make it," Scott said Wednesday. "It's all predicated on how your team is doing, as well. If you're playing great, if your team is playing pretty good, then you have a better chance.

    "Obviously, recordwise, we're not there. So I think that's a reflection on the players as well. Chance of him making it? Probably 40-60."

    Irving, incidentally, had a group of 60 people come to Portland from Seattle to watch the game, an outing his grandfather organized.

    Irving has excellent numbers but not a winning record or playoffs. Nets have better record then us and Deron is having off year. But he probably still snubs Jennings for All Star game. Ellis is up there as well for votes and points. How many back court spots are there for all star game? 4 or 5? Ya figure Wade,Rondo and Williams have the votes. Ellis and Jennings are 4th and 5th for scoring in the eastern conference.

    Brandon Jennings is playing out of his mind this season.

    Among Eastern Conference point guards, Jennings ranks third in PPG (18.3), sixth in RPG (3.6), eighth in APG (5.8), first in STPG (2.0) and fifth in free-throw percentage (.850), which seems undoubtedly deserving of an All-Star appearance.

    But with the likes of Rajon Rondo, Deron Williams and Jrue Holiday playing in the East, Jennings will probably get snubbed again this season.

    Believe it or not, Jennings, who averages 17 PPG and 5.5 APG for his career, has never been voted to an ASG in his prior three years in the NBA.

    Unfortunately, this season won't be any different.

    Boylan say Jennings and Ellis both deserve to be in all star game. Then Woelfel was reading off a poll to Sparky about how many votes each coach voted for Ellis and Jennings. They got votes over Irving since his team is losing and he was injured. But Jennings and Ellis might be snubbed any way. Sparky said Sanders is having a all star type season. Sparky wasn't happy hearing Chandler made it in. Then Woelfel said well cause they have more wins.

    To the victor goes the spoils.

    That’s especially true when it comes to the NBA All-Star Game. Throughout the years, NBA coaches have constantly contended that players on winning teams should be rewarded for their contributions.

    But that thinking will be severely tested when Eastern Conference coaches are asked to select the seven reserves for the 2013 All-Star Game in Houston Feb 17.

    Specifically, the coaches will have to decide whether guards Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers should be All-Stars.

    Irving, despite just being in his second NBA season, is already regarded as one of the elite point guards in the league. His numbers bear out his exceptional skills: He is averaging 23 points, 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds a game while shooting 46 percent from the field, 41 percent from 3-point range and 83 percent the line.

    Yet, Irving’s Cavs are horrible. They have won just 10 games. Only Charlotte with nine and Washington with seven have fewer wins in the NBA than the Cavs.

    Holiday, like Irving, has an impressive resume: 18.7 points, 8.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 45 percent field-goal shooting. And, like Irving, Holiday plays on a bad team. The 76ers are 16-23.

    So, should Irving and Holiday be chosen for the All-Star Game over, say, either one of the Milwaukee Bucks’ guards: Brandon Jennings or Monta Ellis?

    Both have All-Star worthy numbers as well: Ellis is averaging 18.8 points and 5.4 assists and Jennings is averaging 18.5 points and 5.9 assists.

    Furthermore, Jennings has twice been chosen Eastern Conference Player of the Week and Ellis has been selected once. And they, unlike Holiday and Irving, play for a winner; the Bucks are 20-18.

    Yet, in an informal poll of seven NBA officials — two general managers, an assistant general manager, two advance scouts and two players — Irving and Holiday received more votes than either Jennings or Ellis.

    Irving and Holiday were two of four guards chosen in the poll for the Eastern Conference team. The others were Boston’s Rajon Rondo and Miami’s Dwyane Wade, who were chosen as starters in fan voting.

    Joining the four backcourt players on the Eastern team were eight frontcourt players, including Miami’s LeBron James and New York’s Carmelo Anthony, who were also voted as starters by the fans.

    The other six frontcourt players, as chosen by NBA officials in the poll, were Miami’s Chris Bosh, New York’s Tyson Chandler, Boston’s Paul Pierce, Chicago’s Joakim Noah, Atlanta’s Josh Smith and Indiana’s Paul George. All are on winning teams.

    George’s selection may surprise some — he is averaging 16.9 points, 3.7 assists and 7.6 rebounds — but Indiana does have the third-best record in the East. According to those polled, George is the primary reason for the Pacers’ success.

    Besides Jennings and Ellis, others who drew serious consideration from those polled were Indiana power forward David West, Chicago small forward Luol Deng and New Jersey guard Joe Johnson.

    Interestingly, power forward Kevin Garnett, who was voted to start by the fans, didn’t receive a single vote in the poll. Ditto for New Jersey point guard Deron Williams, a three-time All-Star selection who was a member of last summer’s US-Olympic gold-medal winning team.

    NBA coaches are expected to fill out the rosters later next week.

    Barkley and Kenny from TNT think Jennings deserves a all star appearance. But these guys don't.

    The NBA lets the fans vote on who the starters in the All-Star Game will be. The fans vote has been counted and Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett, LeBron James, Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade will start for the Eastern Conference squad.

    The NBA has its 30 head coaches select the reserve players. The coaches vote for seven players within their conference – two guards, three frontcourt players and two players regardless of position. Coaches are not permitted to vote for players on their team. The All-Star reserves will be announced on Thursday, so we asked some of our East-based writers to pick their All-Star reserves for the Eastern Conference and give some thoughts on why they selected who they did.


    Eastern Conference All-Star Reserves
    Joel B Alex K Lang G Tommy B
    Guard 1 Jrue Holiday Jrue Holiday Jrue Holiday Jrue Holiday
    Guard 2 Kyrie Irving Paul George Monta Ellis Kyrie Irving
    Forward 1 Joakim Noah Brook Lopez Brook Lopez Brook Lopez
    Forward 2 Tyson Chandler Tyson Chandler David West Tyson Chandler
    Forward 3 Chris Bosh Chris Bosh Al Horford Joakim Noah
    Flex 1 Paul George Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving Loul Deng
    Flex 2 Paul Pierce Paul Pierce Chris Bosh Chris Bosh



    The Philadelphia 76ers have been reeling without Andrew Bynum in the lineup but Jrue Holiday has come into his own and is nearly producing 20 points and 10 assists per night. Those are monster numbers on a team without a dominant scorer to alleviate pressure. Milwaukee Bucks guard Monta Ellis has put up bigger offensive numbers in his career, but his play this season is still worth noting. Ellis has kept the Bucks relevant in the Eastern Conference’s playoff race despite a coaching change and reports of a tense locker room environment.

    Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez has experienced the type of bounce back year the Nets’ organization was hoping to see. Lopez has been the primary driver in Brooklyn’s rise up the East’s standings as both Deron Williams and Joe Johnson are having down years. Emerging wing Paul George gets the headlines, but Indiana Pacers forward David West has been the heartbeat of the team this season playing without the injured Danny Granger. West is nearly producing at his pre-knee injury levels this season and is a strong reason why the Pacers sit at the top of the Central Division. The Hawks have been sliding in the standings, but Al Horford is still a deserving All-Star. While many inside and outside of the organization feel it’s Josh Smith’s team in Atlanta, Horford continues to be the more consistent force of the two.

    Miami HEAT forward Chris Bosh continues to produce and play at a high level. Bosh remains one of the best power forwards in the game today and should rack up another All-Star appearance. Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is the only other player I’d consider from a non-playoff team. Simply put, Irving is the goods and will undoubtedly have a long streak of All-Star appearances to his credit, why not start it in 2013?

    — Lang Greene


    Despite not yet being old enough to buy a drink, Kyrie Irving has already emerged as one of the most exciting, dynamic and talented points guards on the planet. Jrue Holiday is another up-and-coming guard certainly worthy of being named to this season’s All-Star team. Although he doesn’t get as much national attention as many others, Holiday is currently averaging 19.4 points (fourth-highest scoring average in the Eastern Conference) and 9.0 assists (second in the East). Jrue also has the third-highest field-goal percentage (45.8 percent) of any guard in the East averaging at least 14 points.

    As phenomenal as Tyson Chandler played last season (when he was named the Defensive Player of the Year), he’s playing as well if not better this year. He is averaging more rebounds (11.0 per game) and a career-high12.4 points per contest. Brook Lopez is another Eastern Conference big man playing arguably the best ball of his career. Lopez has been the Nets’ most consistent and efficient offensive option. Just as importantly, his rebounding is vastly improved (7.3 per game) and he is averaging a career-high 2.1 blocks. An argument could certainly be made that Lopez is the Nets’ MVP through the first two-plus months of the 2012-13 campaign. Joakim Noah’s numbers don’t accurately portray just how important he is to the Bulls. Still, he is averaging his customary double-double (including a career high 12.4 points), while also chipping in 1.3 steals and 2.0 blocks (both would represent career-highs).

    Luol Deng has been a key “glue guy” for Chicago all season long. He leads the NBA in minutes played, constantly contributing on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor. Chris Bosh is rebounding a bit less this year. But he remains incredibly efficient on offense (shooting 54.5 percent from the floor) and is a vital piece on the team with the best record in the East.

    — Tommy Beer


    While it’s true that my predictions here would mean half of this year’s Eastern Conference All-Star team would be from either Miami or Boston, both Chris Bosh and Paul Pierce are plenty deserving of making the team this year. Pierce has been the most consistent Celtic this year, and Bosh has been as good as we’ve seen him since he left Toronto.

    Outside of those two guys, Jrue Holiday and Kyrie Irving are in because they’ve both made giant leaps forward as pros this year, while Deron Williams is having one of his cruddiest year ever. Tyson Chandler would’ve been named the starter at center in a perfect world, and Joakim Noah is one of the major reasons the Bulls have been respectable without Derrick Rose. Finally, Paul George has been a double-double machine the last ten games or so, putting up monster numbers and looking like the star we all guessed he could be when he came into the league.

    This is an Eastern All-Star team I can live with, and if that means there are no Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks or Milwaukee Bucks, even though they’re all three currently in the playoff picture, so be it.

    — Joel Brigham


    Jrue Holiday and Paul George aren’t household names, but they’ve stepped up this season and had career-years. Holiday and George have been the main reason for their respective team’s success. Both players lost a star teammate to injury (Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia and Danny Granger in Indiana), but they elevated their game in that player’s absence and kept their team in the playoff picture. This is likely the first of many All-Star nods for Holiday and George since their best basketball is likely still ahead of them.

    Entering this season, I never would’ve predicted that Brook Lopez would be on my list of All-Star reserves. I’ve been very critical of Lopez over the years, but I have to admit that he’s having an outstanding season and he’s showing improvement, especially on the defensive end. He has been the best player in Brooklyn, not Deron Williams, and he has lived up to the huge contract he signed over the summer. This season, Lopez has the fourth-highest Player Efficiency Rating in the league behind only LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul. He definitely deserves to be an All-Star alongside Tyson Chandler and Chris Bosh, who have been important pieces on the two best teams in the East.

    The wild card spots were difficult to choose, but I went with Kyrie Irving and Paul Pierce. It’s very possible that Irving gets left off of the team simply because coaches usually reward players on winning teams and Cleveland hasn’t been very successful this season. However, he’s putting up huge numbers and deserves the spot, in my opinion. Also, don’t be surprised if the coaches leave off Irving, Holiday or George and send a veteran in their place. Sometimes, the coaches leave off players who will have plenty of All-Star selections down the road so that they can reward a veteran. Paul Pierce gets in simply because he’s a perennial All-Star and the coaches rarely leave accomplished veterans off of the team. Even though Boston has underachieved, Pierce has been putting up solid numbers and I’d be shocked if the coaches left him off of the team. Fair or not, Pierce gets the final spot over Joakim Noah, Josh Smith, Luol Deng, David West, etc.

    Bucks still getting no love from the press.
    The NBA All-Star reserves will be announced at 7 p.m. ET Thursday on TNT. USA TODAY Sports writer Jeff Zillgitt looks at the numbers and performances to tell you who should be on the teams.

    East

    Tyson Chandler, Knicks C – Averaging a double-double in points and rebounds, shooting 67.4% from the field and the Knicks are better, especially offensively, with Chandler on the floor.

    Joakim Noah, Bulls C – Teammate Carlos Boozer deserves strong consideration, but a combination of traditional and advanced stats gives Noah the nod.

    Brook Lopez, Nets C – Where would Brooklyn be without Lopez's improved game?

    Chris Bosh, Heat C – Outstanding shooter from the field and remains a vital and underappreciated part of Miami's offense.

    Kyrie Irving, Cavaliers PG – Sometimes being one of the best players at your position in the conference trumps wins and losses for an All-Star selection.

    Jrue Holiday, 76ers PG – Got paid in the offseason and has delivered, averaging career highs in points, assists, rebounds and shooting percentage.

    Paul George, Pacers SG – With Danny Granger injured, George's overall game on offense and defense has propelled the Pacers.

    ANOTHER TAKE: Sam Amick offers his All-Star game picks

    West

    Tim Duncan, Spurs PF – Everyone knows Father Time is undefeated, but Duncan has sent the game into overtime – 17.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 2.8 assists in 30.2 minutes per game.

    David Lee, Warriors PF – Giving the Warriors the kind of production they expected when they signed him in 2010 and providing leadership on a young, improving team.

    Marc Gasol, Grizzlies PF – Like Boozer-Noah, you can't go wrong with Gasol or Zach Randolph on Memphos. Nothing wrong with putting both on the All-Star team either. Gasol gets in here, barely, because of his defense.

    Russell Westbrook, Thunder PG – Polarizing for trivial reasons, he is one of two players this season averaging at least 20 points, seven assists and five rebounds.

    Tony Parker, Spurs PG – Averaging a career-high 17 points and 40% on three-pointers and shooting 51.9% from the field and averaging 7.3 assists while playing just 32.7 minutes per game.

    Stephen Curry, Warriors PG – Finally healthy, mostly, Curry has shown he is one of the best shooters in the league, averaging 20.7 points and shooting 46.4% on threes. He has backed it up with victories.

    James Harden, Rockets SG – Almost a 25-5-5 guy at 25.9 points, 5.4 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game on a team he has turned into a playoff contender.

    Ellis short by .2 points for average and Jennings .3.

    Holiday 19.0 points average
    Ellis 18.8
    Jennings 18.7

    Even though we just beat the 76ers and still get no love. Probably wont get any love beating the Cavs either. Since tonight is when the reserves names are announced. Well if Jennings gets snubbed again I just hope he don't go into a funk like last year. Rather see him mad and go beast mode to prove the voters wrong.

    About 20 minutes in Ted Davis and Sparky start talking about is Jennings or Holiday or Irving getting in all star games as a reserve. Then Ted mentions why coaches didn't pick Jennings last year was cause of losing record. This year were a playoff team. Then Sparky mentions Jennings loves the spotlight. He was the best in the McDonalds game back in the day showboating and gave a excellent show to the fans.

    All Holiday really has over Jennings is 9 assists to Jennings and Irving 5-6 assists a game average. But Jennings owned Holiday against both meetings head to head and Bucks have winning record over Cavs and 76ers. Yeah Irving averaging like what 22 or 23 points a game. But missed a lot of games with injury and is a losing team.

    The first 20 minutes of the show is all about Aaron Rodgers.
