What about Blake/Love getting in ahead of LeMarcus last year? I get that the coaches/fans lag behind sometimes but its not always on rep.

22 games isn't enough of a sample size especially if you missed games this year as well. Honestly they should have just eliminated the allstar game this season or just made it late March instead.

22 games. Guys like Amar'e Stoudemire and Boozer don't deserve to be in the ASG.

They could have, but I think the NBA was really out to promote the New Orlando Magic arena that opened up in 2009-10.

don't know about boozer but Amare shouldn't even be on the list for consideration this year

Obviously they weren't going to eliminate the ASG but I agree that it should have been much, much later.

the starting line ups this year r obvious but the reserves should b based more on reputation, tho the 22 games should b taken into consideration

Everybody cries about how it's based on reputation, but the BEST players in the league play at this All-Star game every year, give or take a couple of toss-ups. LBJ is the second most hated player in the NBA, but is still starting on the All-Star team. If it was truly based solely off of reputation, he wouldn't be starting.

He still has plenty of fans.

Should be based on THIS season regardless of games played.

I expect to see new faces in there this year though.

Don't mind this but swap Rubio for Gay.

Those "plenty" of fans don't come close to the people that hate him. There's a reason why he's the number 2 hated player.

There's also a reason his jersey is still the most popular in the NBA.

True, but that doesn't cancel out him being the second most hated player in the NBA.

Bosh is so underrated. He should be the EC PF.

IMO 2nd best forward in the EAST so far.

Melo - 23.7PPG, .404FG%, .316 3P%, 6.6RPG, 4.4APG, 1.2STLPG, 3.2TO | Knicks record 8-13
Bosh - 20.4PPG, .521FG%, .280 3P%, 7.8RPG, 2.1APG, 1.0STLPG, 2.2TO | HEAT record 16-6

So yeah, this years AS game is based on reputation... Like the others. 22 games is a small sample but in a shortened season that's enough proof.

This has to be the stupidest question. Sorry but EVERY year players should be evaluated like they have never had any NBA season played before that season. Everybody should be looked at for waht they have done up to the end of voting time. So if Royal Ivey has had a monster first half (I actually typed that without laughing wow) he should be in the all star game over somebody like Kobe even with his name if he had been playing bad that first half.

All Star game should be earned via PLAY not NAME/POPULARITY.

It should be based on the performances of these 22 games and for this reason I believe Dirk shouldn't make it but I doubt the coaches are going to pass up on him.

I feel like if I were a player in this shortened season I wouldnt play in this game regardless. With this whole four games in five nights thing, I would take the time up and rest. Players arent getting much time to rest, this could give them a chance. Especially since the game doesnt matter at all.
