Who was the worst all star snub this year?

I've always really thought it was Aldridge, but Nash is averaging 17 and 11 (second in assists) and he doesn't really even get talked about..

Also Felton was a huge part in the knicks success, also putting up great numbers.

Then there's guys like Monta Ellis who just seem to get no love from the coaches.

I say replace Duncan with Aldridge, and JJ with Eric Gordon, and Pau with Odom, and Ray Allen with Nash, and then maybe Pierce with Pau, and then maybe replace wnba celebrity shootout with sasha gray circlejerk at half-court, and staples center with rose bowl, and kenny smith with steven A smith, and hitler stern with zombie thomas more, national anthem with even flow by pearl jam, and childrens tickets can be replaced with Downtown Brown beers, then I'd be happy.

Aldridge for Duncan. I do think Duncan is incredibly invaluable, despite his "average" looking stats, but Aldridge has meant more to his team.

Besides that, I'm really okay. If Boozer had played more games, than maybe him over Bosh.

Joe Johnson hardly deserved it...but I'm not replacing him with Felton.

Aldridge for Duncan is a very good swap. I think as legendary as Duncan is, I might say that Aldridge is even better right now. I guess with a record like that, you got to take 2 spurs.

so youre saying nash will play for the east, we are moving pau from the west to the east and completely eliminating pierce from the game,???

Lamarcus should be in there over Duncan. Sorry, I know TD is arguably the best PF ever, and his team is the best team in the NBA, but he has pedestrian numbers. Its a lifetime achievement award him being there.

In the east, I don't like JJ making it at all, but I don't really see a worthy replacement at the moment.

I would agree with this, but that's the way the all star game has always been. They'll always put the all time greats in the game over guys without big national exposure, especially if they're on the best team in the league.

Nash.

Putting up 17/11 on 63 TS% in 33 MPG.

Running the sixth best offense in the league, and when you consider what he has to woek with that's absurd. Seriously give the guy a team that can rebound, 50 wins.

And lol at Monta having more votes than Nash.

Boozer's stats look superior to Bosh's because of sample size. He's played 29 games compared to Bosh's 47.

Boozer is the superior rebounder, and he has been a 20-10 player for most of his career. Whatever numbers he is pacing right now is what he will finish with at the end of the season.

With that being said, I feel like the snub at this point is Aldridge. Although it really isn't a snub, because Love was rightly taken over him, and most of the people who deserved to be in the ASG, are in it. Nash is a close second imo.

With the exception of Eric Gordon and Kevin Martin, I would say any one of those guys deserves to be on the all-star team as much as anybody else.

Gordon I love, he is an enormous talent, and has some great game, but he is a shooting guard in a PGs body, he's scoring lots in losing efforts, and as talented as he is, I've seen guys like Mike James put up numbers that look like all-star stats on losing teams, so I'm reluctant to just offer a guy scoring 20+ on a losing team a spot on the all-star team.

Kevin Martin is a great player to, but lets face it, the most you have room for on the all-star team is for three shooting gaurds, Kobe is the clear cut choice to start, and after him you have Manu who many consider to be the most valuable player on the Spurs, and they have the best record. And with guys like Durant and Carmelo taking up spots on the wing, and the depth of point guards (CP3, D-Will, Westbrook), its hard to find room for a guy like Matin, who while very talented, is on a team that is in 11th in the West, so his stats have coming on losing efforts. And lets not forget that Kevin Martin would be trying to earn a spot a head of guys like Vince Carter, Ellis, Tyreke Evans, Brandon Roy, and Rudy Gay (SF and SG are interchangable in terms of picking reserves for the all-star game in my book, hence my nod to Rudy Gay). Now I'm not saying all those guys shoudl be in above Martin, but there is certainly as much of a case for most of them as there is for Martin.

Odom is hugely important to LA and their championships. Evne if the guy never makes an All-Star team, he will be a HOFer. Its that simple. What he has done over the course of his career, he will be rewarded for. Its sad he hasn't made an all-star team yet, but the Lakers have planety of representation at the ASG.

Smith, Randolph, Parker, Boozer, Aldrige, and Nash have all been there before, and as great as each of them are (and you can throw Kidd in there too), they can't expect it to make it evey year. They all warrant a spot on the ASG, but sadly there arent that many spots. Ellis is still young and he is still posting numbers in losing efforts, so he gets the Kevin Martin treatment until he starts posting those numbers on a contender, or at least a playoff team.

That leaves Felton, and he and Amare have been huge in NY and both deserve love for turning that franchise around, sadly you have a PG posting the highest assist-per since Stockton retired who also is playing great defence and all whilst starting and being the engine for the team with the best record in the east. Rose is a legit MVP candidate and a valid selection, with guards like Wade, Allen, and Johnson, its hard, for me anyways, to put Felton above any of those guys.

Its hard selecting All-Star teams, because the league is so deep, and it does seem like some teams were over-represented this year, but those teams also have some of the best players on the planet, so...

Aldrige got straight robbed but people should have voted for him and then we wouldn't have this problem. I did! Also Tony Parker got robbed him and Manu are the players that have the Spurs on a roll offensively. As far as people saying Duncan doesn't deserve to be their his team has the best record in the NBA. Yes he is taking a smaller offensive role but don't get it confused he has to be the anchor of their D and is putting up great numbers it just in less minutes so it looks like he is playing avg i mean the man is avg 29 min a game a career low his per 36 stats are 16.6 Pts 11.5 Reb 2.4 Blocks and 3.7 Ast. On the best team in the league he deserves the Nod. In the east Bosh shouldn't be in the game it should be a toss up between Josh Smith and Carlos Boozer I would personally take Smith. Also Felton deserved the nod but at the same time he should have finished the first half of the season strong so as a Knick fan I can't complain the player on our team that deserved to go 100% is starting! If the Rockets had a winning team Kevin Martin would have been robbed as well because he is slowely becoming the second best SG in the west but with the way they selected this year letting losing teams have players with nod he got robbed too!!

I'd love to see you make a poll about that.

Anyway I don't really feel like this year that any snubs are that bad. I explained in the other thread why I'd take Duncan and besides Aldridge nobody else is really overwhelming deserving right now with stats and team success.
