How does Arenas have more votes than Rose?


And how is Joe Johnson not getting any respect?

peeps gotta get rose in. not being a homer here, i really think the way he has become the leader of this team and face of the franchise along with the way he has played has earned him a trip.

Yes! We got Bynum to pass Okur!!

Gasol surely needs to be in this game!

When Yi Jinlian has more votes than Chris Paul is when something needs to be done about the All Star voting process and, it looks like that's this year. The fans should get to vote the last couple players on to the squad and, the players and coaches should vote the 5 starters and 5 bench players because this is getting to be a joke. Just like when Yao got voted ahead of Shaq his rookie year when Shaq was basically in his prime. It's not fair when I guy like Arenas who hasn't played a game all year has more votes than guys that should be on the team.

Well think about it, he's got no competition. Every other position is stacked with great players; East Center is all about Howard. I mean, when number 2 in the voting is a defensible Samuel Dalembert, there's no doubt who's getting filled in for #1 on the ballots.

I feel the back court should be Wade and Harris and I'm an Iverson fan.

I thought rose would have more votes. I guess its because he's a rookie. About Yi having so many votes....:pity:

This is absolutely ridiculous. How is Joe Johnson not even on the list?

Yi? Really ****ING YI? This is just an embarrassment for the NBA.

Even making it over Al Horford? :pity:

Wow. So many players deserve it over the few that are leading the vote. Danny Granger, Joe Johnson, Derrick Rose, Devin Harris, TJ Ford all deserve it over Yi Jianlian, Sam Dalembert, and Allen Iverson.

Just checked the full list.
Eastern Conference
How the **** is LUKE RIDNOUR. LUKE ****ING RIDNOUR ahead of Jose Calderon and Joe Johnson.

Yi Jianlian ahead of Chris Bosh, Paul Pierce, Hedo Turkoglu, Shawn Marion, Josh Smith, and Tayshaun Prince is just ****ing ********.

Dalembert in front of Bogut and Horford? Ben Wallace ahead of Kendrick Perkins? Has Haywood even played a game this year? How the hell does he have a vote. I didnt know three year olds knew how to operate a ****ing allstar ballot.

Western Conference
Shane Battier, Bruce Bowen, and Josh Howard over Lamarcus Aldridge? Really?

Unbelievable. Jason Kidd over Nash, BRoy, and Billups. Jason Terry over Brandon Roy and Billups. And get this, RAFER ****ING ALSTON over Roy and Billups? :pity: :pity :pity:

Mehmet Okur and Greg Oden over Biedrins and Al Jefferson that is just ********. Nick Collison, the white 6-9 Center from OKC, over Camby and Kaman. Is that a joke?

Is the whole NBA a joke? Maybe they should start making these ballots idiot proof.
