The all star game is begininng to become lame. Its the same damn players and with no excitement. And people vote the same players over and over. I mean lebron, kobe, Howard, paul, wade, pierce and yao i understand but there were actually votes for arenas and mcgrady! I mean come on they were freakin injured. And personally, iverson didn't deserve to go. He destroyed the pistons. This year many players should've went like Deron Williams, David Lee, Kevin Durant, Jamal Crawford, Kevin Martin, and Gerald Wallace(whose underrated and is a athletic freak) and Emeka Okafor(whose average double-doubles ever since he entered the league). I swear if the upcoming all-star game is the same again, they should just cancel the damn thing.

This is what happens when fans are allowed to vote multiple times. Or at all.
Fans usually see one team more than five times in a season, their own.
Players and coaches see every team, so they are qualified to vote.
Most fans are not. That is why all star games are a joke.
Good thing it doesn't decide home field advantage like in baseball.

double edge sword. Fan voting is what makes it great, but Yao will be the starter forever, and big market teams will continue to get their crap in over Deron, Al Jefferson, etc. Is what it is

Yao will still probably "start" even though he's injured. Chinese people should stop voting for Chinese players just because they're the same race. i understand you're proud of your countrymen, but Yi freaking Jianlian was almost a starting forward in last year's all-star game! perhaps those who are injured shouldn't even be on the ballots. that'll take care of votes such as those for Arenas and T-Mac last year.

AGREEED, but not just that we want to see more highlights like the shaq and chris paul play. :)

You seriously didn't know the All-Star game was a popularity contest? It doesn't matter how bad your season is (Iverson) you'll still get voted into the All-Star game if you are star or a big name your guaranteed a vote regardless of injury or not (T-Mac)

Plus people think an All-Star game with K.Martin and Jamal Crawford would be boring cause their not the "dunking" type

Kevin Martin??? Sorry I wasn't voting for him the entire time he was injured. I won't make that mistake again. I'll be sure to vote for players who are hurt but I think would be doing a good job if they were healthy. T-Mac and Yao should get plenty of votes then, right?

Dirk never starting shows the ASG has zero meaning.

Not when you have Duncan and Garnett playing in front of you ever since you've been drafted. He does have a pretty good chance this year though.
