Melo
Duncan
Ming

No.

Yao will be voted in unless he isn't an option. That leaves the PF spot, which means he will compete with Dirk and Duncan who are more popular.

Should he? Yep, but it won't happen unless Yao is not in the race and he is listed as a C like Amare was.

Kobe, Nike, and the Lakers organization would have to run a campaign to get him into that starting spot sadly because he nor Duncan and Dirk (yeah I know he plays mostly PF and shouldn't be c eligible, but they made an exception for stat last year) for that matter can't beat Yao in votes.

I dont think Duncan will be forward eligible this year, and the forward spots will come down to between Durant, Dirk, Pau, and Melo, so as long as the Lakers keep winning and Pau keeps posting monster numbers he should be a starter

He has to beat Yao, Dirk, and Duncan... which is tough and unfair. Fan's should get a limited vote IMO. Let GM's and coaches decide.

Dirk in my eyes is still the best PF, and Duncan still the fan favorite. Those two would and still deserve the nod over Gasol. Pau will still most likely play the most.

11-08-2010, 02:07 AM
I think Durant and Melo will be the Fs in the west. Pau has a chance if he qualifies as a C, but Yao will probably get voted in over him.

does he deserve to? yes. will he? probably not.


the votes that duncan and dirk are going to recieve are gonna be ridiculously high. i dont think he makes it as a starter. i hope he does though.

Yes, this is the year. CP3 is the only player whos putting up better numbers.

He's also well on his way to becoming an all-nba 1st team selection. Sad to say, but I think the Duncan/KG era is over. This is Paus time, he's heads and shoulders better than any other big through 7 games.

I hope for gods sake

1 That Td is on the C list

2 MIng is NOT eligible, come on 24 mpg and not all nights? strn dont be a money *****!!!!!!!!

3 Melo is traded east once and for all.


Pau vs Durant and Dirk 2 sports

The Chinese market would definitely vote Yao first, but if Pau continues this play, I'd definitely say he's more deserving than any other center (sorry I meant PF playing C) out West.

kArSoN RyDaH
11-08-2010, 02:31 AM
Pau is listed as a Center so hed be voted in as a center.

jimbobjarree
11-08-2010, 02:39 AM
if he's classed as a forward I dont think he'll make it. I'd reckon KD and Melo start, with Pau 5th behind Dirk and TD. If he's classed as a center he has a very good chance.

11-08-2010, 02:46 AM
I ****ing hate him, but he deserves it at this point.

Gibby
11-08-2010, 03:12 AM
I things he is the best PF right now and deserves to be there. It depends whether he is listed as PF/C. If he is a C and Yao Ming is eligible, no way. If Yao is not on their he will. If he is listed as a PF than i say he will over Duncan or Dirk.

I hope Yao is on the ballot and gets voted and the NBA realizes how stupid fan voting is and does something about it

The NBA would counter and say that without fan voting there would have been no return of Magic Johnson to give the league one of its most memorable moments.

He's playing better than all of them. He should be a starter, most likely won't be though. Don't worry, he'll still be on the team no doubt

Dirk/Griffin

Yao wont get picked

11-08-2010, 07:00 AM
He should go as the starter but it is and always will be a popularity contest so if Spain doesn't get to voting then I assume that he will not be. But he should be.

When Yao gets voted in as the starting center again all of the ******** talk about how wrong it is will be completely justified. I just hope that the West coach (Phil probably) will bench him after a couple of minutes and leave him there. Or the Chinese get a ****in' clue and vote on performance. But plenty of Americans don't know how to vote either based on Iverson being a starter last year, which was absolutely ridiculous.

TheGoodGerman
11-08-2010, 07:29 AM
Nah, he won't. Besides the Lakers-Fans ... he isn't that popular. Even if he is playing outstanding ball atm. Over 70 games to go. A lot can happen. Wonder, why all the people with hispanic background in the U.S. don't make his starting job possible.

U mad? A Laker fan getting mad at a popularity contest? Lakers are easily one of the most popular teams in China. Only reason why Kobe has led the ballot each year is because of them. If people want to watch their favorite player than w.e. let them. No one had any problems when VC missed a quarter of the season and still got voted in as a starter or when Shaq gets in almost every year.

Yeah, I am mad. I wish fans could make better decisions regarding their picks. When Kobe was voted a starter his second year in the league I knew that wasn't right and a bad decision by fans. The past few years when Iverson and Carter are voted in I just shake my head at the stupidity of the fans.

I understand it is basically a showcase for the fans favorite players to play a glorified exhibition game but at the same time the actual point of it is for deserving players to be rewarded for their good play to start the season. I think they should wait two months and then release a ballot that makes sense instead of doing it at the start of the season. At least there is the coaches vote to wrong some of the injustices that come from stupid *** fans.

If he keeps this up, when the ballots come out, he's my vote for that position. Will he win? :shrug:

Regardless, starting in the allstar game doesn't say much other than a lot of people know your name. Sure, occasionally the best players in the game start but we've seen plenty of times where thats not the case.

Because hispanic and spanish is not quite the same thing.

Theres bad blood too, i mean they see us as the conquerors who wnt in their territoires and killed their ancestors raped their grand grand grand grand grnd mothers and stole their gold.

Stupid, but thats how hispanics perceive spaniards.
Wonder why americans dont perceive the english the same way ( specially since there are TOnS of indian americans in the countrys were spain was while indian americans where basically fullly exterminated wher the english were(.

DoJoTheSlasher
11-08-2010, 03:07 PM
He would if Dirk Nowitzki wasn't an NBA player. I would put Gasol at center because Duncan is not a center and Yao is in no way better than Pau. He is the 2nd best PF in the game and will most likely be coming off of the bench. All Star doesn't matter, All NBA Teams is what matters.

Pau definitely deserves it over any other big at the moment that's for sure.

But the starting 5 is about a popularity contest. Duncan, Yao, and Dirk still play in the league, unfortunately for Pau Gasol.

Dude are you kidding me? How is it stupid? Just like us Americans, and the British, the Spanish were responsible for a massive decline in the population of indigenous Americans. I'm pretty sure the north american natives would still be pretty upset with the english and white americans...if there were any left living outside a reservation.

Sorry for being off-topic, but that's ridiculous crooner. their anger is justified.

When did I ever say it was the same thing???

I'm fully aware that the British and The U.S. took out the majority of North American natives, but the Spanish did a lot of damage in the southern Americas as well. They are comparable whether you like it or not.
