I bet Garnett or Amare gets the votes by fans for PF and though a big part of the Miami big 3, I doubt he will average over 15 a game.

Wade>You
10-31-2010, 07:12 PM
At this rate, he won't be voted in, but I think he'll get the nod from the coaches as a backup. His defense is extremely underrated and he causes a lot of problems for opposing offenses. This guy can virtually cover the post and still close out on shooters effectively after the guy in the post kicks it out. Offensively he's drawn more double teams than Wade or James as soon as he touches the ball. The coaches know what's up.

No... 4th in line I guess.

Amare will definitely make all star
Boozer as well I guess will make all star
Garnett, Bosh or none then? Am I misssing anyone?

Well right now Amare is better then Garnett so i think Amare will get it but dont sleep on Bosh guy is a stud and with Wade and Lebron getting double teamed Bosh will see alot of open looks so he can only get better for them as the year goes on.

Anyone watching the HEAT games knows that Bosh has been covering a lot of ground with his length and lanky arms. Extremely underrated by people who don't know about the intangibles that make up a good defense.

if Amar'e is put in the ballot as a C, then most likely, but since I think he'll be put in as a PF, I'll say no. Garnett, Amar'e, Boozer will prolly get in over him. And he still has to compete with Josh Smith as well...

As a raptor fan i have noticed a improvement in Bosh's defence but playing on a good team helps him also. He doesnt have calderon to allow dribble penetration and doesnt have clueless bargnani in the interior who knows nothing about help defence. Also he can be more aggresive because he is not asked to do as much on offence.

Boozer missing 2 months will count him out of the discussion I bet. Garnett, Smith, Bosh and Amare will all be in competition for PF spots though I'd imagine. Depends how each plays leading up to all star breaK. It has only been a few games in this young season.

But I agree, he wont be an all-star

He will not get voted in playing behind Wade and Lebron. To get the nod from the coaches, he must put up numbers for miami, and so far, they are not using him effectively. I see the prospect of Bosh being an all-star this year being more a question of how quickly miami gels and how quickly they integrate him into the offense than him actually playing well/not playing well.

daleja424
10-31-2010, 08:26 PM
Amare and Dwight will get voted in and then they will need 3 more big men. Bosh's per48 stats are going to be out of this world. I dont think that coaches will hold it against him for only averaged 17-18 ppg since he only has to play 30-32 minutes on most nights. Today for example, Bosh put up 18 points in under 30 minutes and b/c it was a route.

Anyways, I think KG, Bosh, and Josh Smith become the other three bigs...since Bosh and KG will both log minutes at center this year.

You realize that majority of fans aren't Bulls fans? Just because you guys are the majority on PSD, doesn't mean thats how it is in the realworld. I'm sure you know this, but I had to say it anyways because there is ZERO chance Boozer gets voted in as a starter (if that was what you were implying).

what about grant hill from like 4 years ago when he played for the magic? he didnt even play a single game before the all star break and was voted in as a starter and there are a hell of a lot less magic fans in this world plus boozer will get to play probably a month before the game takes place, so more people will see him before the votes are tallied. so its a real possibility

when he gets integrated into the team more he will put up probably the 2nd best pf numbers outside of amare. he will make it due to popularity now also.

But Boozer isn't popular. Bosh is way more popular than him. Especially since hes on the Heat now. I'm not comparing their games, but their popularity.

Amare isn't better than Bosh, remeber that Bosh is the 3rd option on he's team while Stoudamire is the 1st option, so he won't get he's numbers.

John Walls Era
10-31-2010, 08:42 PM

Saying something like this would only make people believe Bosh is better. No stats, nothing is supported. Empty statement.

EG) Bosh has been a better player because Amare had Steve Nash finding him for open layups his whole career. ;)

IMO i would take KG out and put Brook Lopez In. But i think bosh will get in as the season goes on he will get more and more open looks.

I find it highly entertaining that only the heat fans think he's a lock. This thread is more a vote of 'homerism' vs 'heat hate'.

I voted no, but it could just as easily be a yes. Like I said before, it's a matter of the heat finding chemistry in time, and aside from the last game, I haven't been impressed with his numbers, and the role they're using him in so far is far from all-star worthy.

I would assume these are the bigs that are in contention for it, with it depending on how many bigs they want
howard
bosh
kg
horford
lopez
amare

since they had five last year I bet howard and amare are the starters with kg, bosh, and horford as the reserves.

Yes he had a better game offensively today, but he only had ONE rebound...those are Bargs-like numbers lol

Considering the increased depth at the 4 and 5 positions this year in the East, I wouldn't be surprised to see him left off of the roster...Personally, I will not vote for him at all

right, a guy who puts up 20-10 is not an allstar... and Stoudemire is? WTF?

Stoudemire is going to show he's not a winner without Nash.

The only reason why Bosh won't be an all-star, there are two ELITE volume shooters on the team. Bosh making good with his chances on offense that he is given but his rebounding number might be take a dip cuz there are role players SPECIFIC to rebounding on this team.
i can see him average 7 rebounds and like 15-17 points. but his FG% is going to be amazing and so will be his plus/minus

I think he has always been a borderline All Star. Toronto fans know he didn't have the leadership to help the Raptors do much. But he is a good basketball player and if he adapts to his new role effectively he could be voted in all the same. He may not have the stats this year, but he may be a more effective part of the team since he is no longer being asked to be the #1 (or #2). He remains an efficient player.

It a little early to be predicting this, but the only chance he has of getting in, is if the coach vote him in. Pretty sure a lot of fans outside of Miami, are still mad over the summer, so he can't count on the fans vote. I don't think 15/8 will be enough to get him in.

Hate him or Love him, you gotta realize that Bosh's presence is making opposing defenses focus on him when he has the ball. They aren't going to be like "Chris Bosh is garbage now, hes the 3rd guys, lets just leave him one on one". You can see that there is always a 2nd defender going near him at all times, which opens it up for others. Teams/Coaches know that if Bosh catches on fire, the Heat will be hard to beat.

11-01-2010, 03:51 AM
Most of you seem to be forgetting that there's no 'big man' list of 'PF' list. There's 4 Guard spots (2 fan voted, 2 coach voted), 4 Forward spots (2 fan, 2 coach), 2 Centre spots (1 fan, 1 coach) and then 2 coach voted general spots.

Assuming he's listed as a forward, as usual, he has to compete with LBJ, Garnett, Pierce, G Wallace, Boozer, J Smith, Granger, Iggy, and maybe Stoudemire (although he was listed at C last year) for one of 4 forward spots.
Or, if he's a centre (or the coaches consider him one) he as to beat all but one of Howard, Horford, Bogut, Lopez, and again maybe Amare.
If he doesn't get one of those 6 spots, he's going to have to compete for a general spot against whoever doesn't make it of the forwards and centres, but also of the guards, so it will include all but 4 of Wade, V Carter, Arenas, Rose, J Johnson, Rondo, Wall, etc.

I mean, it'd be a story if he misses out, and I'd feel like it was weird, but there's a huge chance given the competition.

Edit: plus Noah and whoever else I forgot.

Mr.ATLHawks
11-01-2010, 09:22 AM
if Amar'e is put in the ballot as a C, then most likely, but since I think he'll be put in as a PF, I'll say no. Garnett, Amar'e, Boozer will prolly get in over him. And he still has to compete with Josh Smith as well...

This..Josh Smith is playing insane D thusfar this year and while his PPG is low he is hitting jumpshots *hallelujah*....I think Bosh will still make it Garnett looks really old out there. He is still a great defender but his offense is null in void now..

yea but since the starting lineup is up to fan voting, I think KG will make it because his popularity is higher. Even last year KG was a shell of his former self and still made the starting lineup mainly because of his popularity. Same with Iverson, and almost T-mac.
