Yao.....wtf

12-16-2010, 02:35 PM
Yao and Bynum shouldn't be there, there are other centers out west that are more deserving.

Amare deserves his spot up there, i'm glad he's getting some love. He's having an MVP-esque season.

Shaq is number two because he's simply popular. Can't really change that.

Everything else looks good.

who cares?

The fan faves are voted in...everyone else is picked by coaches based on merit.

so what if Yao gets voted in? If he does then it means that a majority of nba fans want to see him be an all-star. Thus it is better for the league to make him an all-star.

The system works this way for a reason.

Yes, and that system is severely flawed...Yao is going to be a career All-Star when he eventually retires, and yet doesn't deserve a handful of those selections.

and here is an update from this year:

During the 2009-10 season, reigning two-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant had the top-selling NBA jersey in China for the fourth consecutive season. The Miami Heat's LeBron James, who played for the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, came in at No. 2, followed by the Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard, Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, and Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose who moved up to No. 5. The rankings are based on sales from retail locations across the country throughout the entire 2009-10 season. adidas is the Official On-court Uniform and Apparel Provider of the NBA.

and if all-star game actually meant something... maybe it would matter...

every real nba fan knows that Yao has not been an all-star this year... do you think we will forget that fown the road?

you honestly just brought the Jersey sales in china as a representation as to the reason why I am wrong? LMAO you'll need to come much better than that. You stick to your opinion I'll stick what we ALL know as a FACT. If you honestly mean to tell me that NBA fans wanted to see Yao Ming over a still super productive Shaquille O'Neal by such a large margin in his ROOKIE season then you can stay right there in your state of delusion deleja. We all know the truth and jersey sales in China in NO way reflects their trend of All Star Voting.

If Raymond Felton doesn't get an all-star nod, it is a damn shame. He is playing like an elite PG this year.. Yea, not just an all-star, but a TOP PG.

No way Wall should be there instead of Felton.

Swashcuff
12-16-2010, 03:05 PM
Looking at that list really reminds us as to the reason why Amar'e was listed as a C last season despite the fact that he played the vast majority of his time a PF. This season now he's listed at F when he has played the bulk of his time at C. The #6 C in the East is right now better than every C in the west.

There is no doubt that they are strong fans of Yao Ming... there is a sense of pride and nationality at stake. It doesnt mean that they dont also respect and follow the sport and leauge as a whole though.

You are being highly critical of something we are all guilty of. Nearly every single person that casts an all-star vote has at least one homer pick on their ballot. What...because they are Chinese they are not allowed a homer vote? I suppose Lakers fans dont know anything about the NBA either since they are voting bynum in second right now right? Don't be a hypocrite.

No way Wall should be there instead of Felton.

if he is playing worthy of the nod he'll be chosen as a reserve don't worry. But that will only happen if he keeps playing at this current level. To be honest though a healthy John Wall in that NY system with that staff would in all likeliness be having a much better season that Felton.

I agree with you on this because YES in truth and in fact I voted for Allen Iverson last season when I OBVIOUSLY knew he wasn't worth it.

I however was not critical of them voting him in I just stated that his VAST majority of fans are from his home country. My point on the fans not entirely being fans of the league but being fans of Ming is also very valid. While Kobe is one of the most popular players in that country his team isn't. The Rockets because of Yao is.

Swashcuff
12-16-2010, 03:13 PM
IMO the system is flawed. Anyone who doesn't care about it should NEVER bring up ASG appearances in any argument about which player is better than another because we see that their is and always has been major favouritsm amongst the starters. And YES all this coming from and Allen Iverson fan.

and I say...and I am sure david Stern would agree... who cares why they watch the NBA... the fact is that they buy a large percentage of global nba merchandise... they watch games... and they support the league... so who are you to say that they arent fans.

everyone roots just a little harder for someone if they are from their neighborhood or community and they are in the spotlight... well for China... it is like that. They have ONE good NBA player and they support him. Nothing wrong with that. Same way that Lakers fans are voting for bynum...same way that Celtics fans vote for Pierce and KG...etc. We all vote for our biases...

You're still missing the point. It makes no sense debating this with you.

You said I was wrong and then you come here and admit that Yao's votes do indeed come mostly from his fans (who are in their RIGHTS) back home.

I never debated whether or not they are right or that they are the only ones who do it or anything of that sort. I never said it was bad for the league nothing like that. My point was where & from who most of those votes were coming from NOTHING else.

It is simple. You are claiming that Chinese people are not NBA fans...but rather they are simply fans of Yao. I posted an article that stated that over 80% of young people in China follow the NBA AND that the nba sold 400 million items in china in 2005-2006 (and among those items there were 5 players who sold more jerseys that Yao did).

How does that not contradict what you are claiming. Why would Chinese people buy massive amounts of Kobe, Lebron, Wade, and Iverson jerseys if they were only interested in Yao.

Chinese people are fans of the NBA and have their team allegiances as well...but when it comes time to vote... their national pride has them casting a vote for Yao...

I dont see what is difficult to understand about that...

i think the league needs to decide. is the all star game gonna be the best players(which to me means all stars) or most popular. to me, its been nothing but a popularity contest.

1. amare should be starting at one of those forward spots.
2. dirk should be starting at one of those forward spots. and pau should be listed as a center.
3. kevin love deserves to make the all star team.
4. love cp3 but westbrook and deron should make the team first.

Caron Butler with more votes that Kevin Love:laugh2: oh the woes of playing on a losing team and not being the flashiest player in the world.

For the sake of the Yao/Bynum situation. Kevin Love should be granted C status and be the starter in the west. Ideally, not that it would ever happen. Hopefully he gets voted by the coaches.

who cares?

The fan faves are voted in...everyone else is picked by coaches based on merit.

so what if Yao gets voted in? If he does then it means that a majority of nba fans want to see him be an all-star. Thus it is better for the league to make him an all-star.

The system works this way for a reason.

This. Let's not forget that the All-Star starters aren't supposed to represent the best players, nor the ones currently performing at the highest level. They're supposed to represent the most popular players, and that's exactly what is happening.

The All-Star game is an exhibition game for the fans to see the most popular players, not a record of anything meaningful. The record of the best players is called the All-NBA team.

To be frank, Pau should be called a C by the league office this season

F/C that make the team should be
- Pau
- Dirk
- LO
- Durant
- Duncan (name value)

* Melo could be gone from the west but if he isn't he should be guaranteed a spot as he has played well.

If Melo isn't moved, that pretty much leaves Love for the last spot, but Aldridge and Randolph should receive consideration over him (even with his crazy averages) if their records are 500 or better by then.

C that make the team out WEST should be - Pau and Duncan

My West Forwards - Dirk, Durant, LO, and 2 more

* Melo could be gone from the west but if he isn't he should be guaranteed a spot as he has played well.

If Melo isn't moved, that pretty much leaves Love for the last spot, but Aldridge and Randolph should receive consideration over him (even with his crazy averages) if their records are 500 or better by then.

My Western Guards - Kobe, Paul, Deron, Westbrook (best player in OKC this year so far), and Manu (best Spur)

------

My Eastern guards - Felton, Rondo, Rose, Wade, and Jameer
My Eastern forwards - KG, Pierce, Lebron, Smith, and Amare
My eastern centers - Dwight and Bosh (reaching here)

* starters in bold

Sorry Nash, Monta, Allen, and Horford

LO? lol stop

16pts, 10rebs, 1blk, 1stl, and 3asts per game on almost 59% shooting from the field, with 39.5% from three.

He is more efficient than Love on offense (some guards shoot better than him from the field) and on defense to the point that it isn't funny.

He is an all star this year out west easily over Randolph, Love, Aldridge, and Milsap. He has had a better season than Duncan as well.
