can yall believe that? i didn't know that until I read the latest Weekend Dime on ESPN....guys like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Jamaal Magloire, Brad Miller, Theo Ratliff and Dale Davis been in the All-Stars game but not Camby. I personally find that unfair....

This man won the DPOY award, was selected to be in the NBA All-Defensive First Team twice and NBA All-Defensive Second Team twice, averaged 10+ rebounds a game for 6 seasons straight, led the league in blocks 4 times, and won four blocked shots titles but despite all that, he has NEVER been in an all-star game.

does anyone think Camby should be selected to be in the All-Star game sometime in the future for "lifetime achievement" just like how Kobe won his MVP because of "lifetime achievement?"

Camby playing in the allstar game would be a bigger joke than him winning the DPOY.

i don't know about you but i think a player who averages 10+ rebounds and 3+ blocks a game consisitantl over a span of multiple seasons deserve to be in the all-star game

When I read playoffs, wasnt he just there like last year, I know he was there the year B4. As far as allstar game, He has never realy deserved it. Defense is great but its not Wades D that gets him into the allstar game. nor any other player.

Yeah he definitely deserves to be an all-star. That's sad, but I don't care he is a all-star in my heart. One of the best rebounders and blockers in the game today. He's always top 5 in both category year in year out. He silently does his job, but his game is anything but silent. Very good Center.

Camby has been in the playoffs...

This shows that people read the title and not the thread, if you had read his post you'd see that he said playoffs but obviously meant all star game.

Yes. You are correct. The title is what gets the attention.
So I clicked on it and posted from there.

Camby has been to the playoffs and I think its messed up how he NEVER made the allstar game, especially when Ben Wallace made it a couple times.

However, Marcus Camby been in the Western Conference these years and remember how strong the Western bigs were with Duncan, Garnett, Yao, Shaq, Dirk, Brand, Amare, etc.

What year has he ever deserved it? Hes one of those guys that just stands the test of time and consistantly plays at the same level. For better or worse hes a very good player to have on any team.

He's a great rebounder...but his defense is overrated. All he does is go for the shotblock. he is too lightweight and he frequently finds himself late on rotations on the baseline.

Way too often he takes jumpers that are out of his shooting range.

His D is so overrated. All he does is roam around and look for a shot to block. No 1-1 skills at all. Don't get me wrong he's deserving of an allstar selection, just not on the merit of his defense. He's a great rebounder and a great shot blocker but thats about it. He's pretty much non-exhistant on the offensive end except for a couple rebounds.
