Im kinda tired of seeing so many players from one team becoming allstars. what if each team had 15 players, one from each team. Simply take the player who has had the biggest individual impact so far this season. Teams would be something like

East
Boston - Rondo
Miami - LeBron
Chicago - Rose
Atlanta - Horford
Orlando - Dwight
New york - Amare
Philadelphia - Iggy
Charlotte - Wallace/Jackson
Indiana - Granger
Milwaukee - Bogut
Detroit - Stucky
New Jersey - Harris
Washington - Wall
Toronto - Bargnani
Cleveland - Mo

West
San Antonio - Ginobili
Dallas - Dirk
Lakers - Kobe
Oklahoma - Durant
New Orleans - Paul
Denver - Melo
Utah - Deron
Portland - Aldridge
Memphis - Gay
Phoenix - Nash
Houston - Martin
Golden State - Ellis/Curry
Clippers - Griffin
Sacramento - Tyreke
Minnesota - Love

I like the idea of each team having a representative for their fans to watch. It works okay for baseball because of the larger rosters, but just not for the NBA. The roster is too small and the talent is too concentrated. Many teams (Cavs, Bobcats, Pistons, Sixers, Kings, etc.) just don't have players deserving enough to knock out other top players.

If you take away the bolded players from their respective teams those team will crumble immediately.

Superstar team ups suck but as the NBA continues more young stars will join the league and up the talent pool, making more teams better. Each team has a ebb and flow; good for a while- garbage for a while.

You really want for Bargnani to play in an all star game?

No seriously, this is bad idea. I better watch Wade over Mo Williams.

I'd rather have this...

A player from each conference is chosen by coaches from their respective conferences. Say, west conferences coaches votes for a player who think they deserve to be an all star. When the voting ends, the player who gets the most votes is the first all star chosen.

Keeping the roster rules, players then choose a player who thinks will help the team one after the other without the influence of others (can't vote for their own teammate.) Roster won't be revealed until days before the break. Replacements will be determined by players from the roster.

For example..

Kobe - LBJ

Kobe choose Love - LBJ choose Howard

Love choose Durant - Howard choose Wade

and so on..... until the roster is complete.

Yes, you might still see players from the same team, but at least they are being chosen by their own teammates.

But in order for this to work, there has to be a catch.

All Star game has been a joke for a long time now, not playing to the fullest because of injuries. What if they do it like baseball, winner of the game gets the home court advantage comes championship series. Seeding in the playoffs remains the same. It's a challenge for the coach and players to get their **** together. If they can't, say goodbye to HCA.

They hate each other.

It was just an example. If they can't get along during the game then it's their fault. Coach can bench them if they want.

specially when are teams like the heat in wich their third best player is better than anything the wizards have or the lakers where you could argue that artest theri 5th best woudl be the franchise dude in other team.

x2. If I had to watch Rodney Stuckey make it over someone like Wade that'd make the game a joke.

This.

Now if it is having 2 allstars on a team where neither are superstars like Horford and Joe Johnson, then the strategy my sound better. But yeah I don't like the idea that baseball does. Besides the roster is 12 players, while you would have to chose 15 players in this scenario.

No. All-stars should be the best players in each conference for the season, regardless of which team they play for. If it happens that the best players all come from the same teams, then so be it. We don't need an affirmative action program for all-stars.
