Kevin Love should easily be the starter for the West and Blake Griffin is my favorite player.

I know that's Melo's alternate position, but Bosh should be starting over him. Oh well, there's no doubt that he'll be the first PF on the reserve list anyways.

Isn't it because he said Bynum was better than Dwight?

Anyways, Love got cheated here. He has played much better than Blake thus far. Everything else is fine in my opinion other than Gasol making it over Aldridge.

Melo has been hurt and hasnt been so good this year, But is better then bosh, I will say bosh deserves to start over melo considering melo is a sf

Normally he is, but so far Melo has been pretty bad by his standards. Bosh has played much better than last year.

Carmelo Anthomy: 21.1 PER
Chris Bosh: 20.9 PER

So where is this notion that Bosh has been "much" better than Melo. PER isnt everything and obviously isnt regarded as much into voting for allstars but it's still something.

Also the Heat are 2nd in the East while NY isn't in the playoff contention, so where does it end. Makes little sense. Come at me haters.

2 Forwards.

And a center.

02-02-2012, 08:46 PM
Wow. You guys have low IQ.

Melo got voted in as a starter. Due to the fact him and LeBron are SFs, he slides to PF. Bosh was never voted as a starter last season. Therefore, he is not better. This season or not.

He has only thrived when Wade is out. Soon as Wade comes back, his stats shrink beyond belief.

I'm no homer but I am a realist. If you can be top 5 in scoring lead your team in rebounds, assists and have a bad shooting year with injuries. That makes you a star.

Melo should be coming off the bench but he'll get voted in because he is a household name.

Because he's been more efficient. Melo has been AWFUL in terms of efficiency. Shooting 40% isn't good. At all. Granted, this has been just one year, but he hasn't played well.
