Some notable info:

***No doubt to this point Duncan should be a starter of the west, but the guys in LA will always get more votes than him.


West top vote-getters, frontcourt: Kevin Durant 605K; Dwight Howard 434K; Blake Griffin 307K; Tim Duncan 189K; Pau Gasol 139K; KLove 112K

***Jeremy Lin is 3rd in votes for guards behind CP3 and Kobe, ahead of guys like Harden/Westbrook/Parker


Jeff Zillgitt ‏@JeffZillgitt
West top vote-getters: Guards -- : Kobe Bryant 639K; Chris Paul 353K; Jeremy Lin 298K; James Harden 196K; Russell Westbrook 143K.

***Steve Nash is apparently ahead of Tony Parker (don't have the #'s yet)

***Top 3 are Lebron, Kobe, and Durant


Top 3 vote getters as of now: LeBron (641,348) Kobe (639,419) and Kevin Durant (605,96

***Omer Asik and Dirk Nowitzki have more All-Star votes than Grizzles big men Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. :speechless:

Lol Jeremy Lin only 50K votes away from being selected as a starter. And he has 100K more votes than the actual star of his team.

Tyson Chandler more popular than I thought. 70K away from starting. Not too bad.

I will laugh my *** off if Jeremy Lin gets the nod for a starter. If so, hopefully they can finally fix this voting system.

Glad to see Rondo as a starter, for now. Hopefully it stays like that.

Phuqing voters.... no clue what they are talking about...
Garnett? Serioulsy? Anderson-V should be in there.

I don't like how they changed the voting and took out the center either. You could essentially, the way this is lined up right now, get 5 wing players starting on a squad (3 SF and 2 SG), without a PG or a C.

They should have 1 spot for a PG, 2 spots for wing players (SG and SF or two of one and zero of the other) and two spots for power players (PF and C or two of one and zero of the other). SF have more in common with SG than they do with C's.

Anyways...

The sad thing about this is these all star spots can affect players getting in the HOF.

You have seen debate where people say things like ''he only has 5x all star appearances'' etc.... which means that being snubbed can ultimately cost you alter on especially when you had the stats to be in the all star game.
Guys like Z-bo, AV, Curry, Jennings, Parker should all be in high contention. How the ****** is Lin, Wade and Gasol getting so many votes. They have all been underwhelming this year.

At least Rondo is starting. Didnt want D-Will starting.

Wouldn't it be an embarassment to the NBA to have players from sub 500 teams like Houston, LA and Minnesota in the All-Star Game ? It's a little overrated to call yourself an All-Star these days. The All-Star game isn't even watchable. I really think they should play for something like they do with the MLB All-Star game.

LMAO no way should Wade or Garnett be starting in the East...

Should be Jrue next to Rondo and Tyson/Andy V at center

wade: 19.8pts, .504fg%, .566ts%, 3.8reb, 4.4ast, .5blk, 1.2stl 2.5to 21.3per, 1.7ws

holiday: 18.4pts, .451fg%, .513ts%, 3.9reb, 8.9ast, .4blk, 1.5stl, 3.8to, 18.2per, 1.5ws

jrue plays 5 mpg more than wade as well, wade's per 36 stats are even better. it's close but wade is the bigger name so he'll get the votes, plus he's coming off knee surgery and is slowly picking up his play as the season goes on. if you actually look into it it's perfectly acceptable to have wade starting over jrue. as for garnett i agree, it should be andy/bosh/chandler.

What? So because a great player plays for a bad team, he doesn't deserve consideration for the All-Star game? You don't think Kobe Bryant has played well enough to make the All-Star team? Or James Harden? Clearly you have no ****ing clue what it means to be an All-Star or how to differentiate between individual accolades and team accomplishments. Then again, usually people have common sense...

Thank you for this post about Wade. Wade is doing bad for "Dwayne Wade" but what ppl fail to understand is that a declining Wade is still top 12 player in the NBA and yes, he is still MUCH better than Jrue Holiday and has the team record and the stats to prove it.

As you so eloquently added in me for me lol.

I actually think this should legitimately be implemented in the All-Star voting process. Like, if you haven't played in at least 50 percent of the games prior to the All-Star game, you should not be eligible to play for the All-Star game. Just because a player is popular or normally would play in the All-Star game does not mean they are deserving of it every season. You should have to step up and earn it every single year.

shouldnt it be bosh starting instead of chandler? i thought they took away the 5 spot this year....

it can still be a true center though, doesn't have to be 3 forwards. and bosh is playing the 5 anyways. should be between andy/bosh/chandler, it's pretty close. a look at the numbers:

Andy: 14.3ppg, .481fg%, .527ts%, 14.8reb, 3.3ast, 1.5stl, .6blk, 1.9to, 22.4per, 3.0ws

Bosh: 18.5ppg, .540fg%, .615ts%, 8.3reb, 1.5ast, .7stl, 1.4blk, 1.9to, 22.3per, 2.8ws

Tyson: 12.4ppg, .698fg%, .724ts%, 9.0reb, .6ast, .7stl, .8blk, 1.0to, 22.6per, 3.7ws

Chinese people in general are somewhat racist.

I'm pretty sure every Celtics fans voted for Pierce, Garnett, and Rondo, every Bulls fans for Deng, Noah etc...
I can't see why a Chinese fan who vote for Harden, Lin, and Asik is a racist. There are just 2 ****ing billion

all star game is about getting fans involved and seeing the players on the big stage. however , the should have it like baseball where only certain players from each team are eligible for the all-star game and have write ins.

but then again, in Houston, Lin Harden and Asik would be the vote eligible players anyways.

I will obviously say Lin should not be in the all star game but if people are gonna tune in and watch Lin with the allstars- thats money for the NBA, which at the end, is still a business. get over yourselves over players you don't like being in the game cuz there will always be disagreements of who should be voted for, picked by etc.

What? So because a great player plays for a bad team, he doesn't deserve consideration for the All-Star game? You don't think Kobe Bryant has played well enough to make the All-Star team? Or James Harden? Clearly you have no ****ing clue what it means to be an All-Star or how to differentiate between individual accolades and team accomplishments. Then again, usually people have common sense...

Back in the day the All-star game use to mean something. Who the **** cares what they do on a losing team . It just goes to show how overrated they are if they can't carry a team on their back and get them into the playoffs and have to have 3 other all-stars on the team to help them out. Reggie Miller didn't need all that help, Michael Jordan didn't need all that help. Patrick ewing didn't need all that help. Fan voting is ****. This league is also ****.

The all-star game also means nothing when half the league is eligible to be voted in.

lol ok i guess a center who's averaging 13.9 ppg, 11 rebs, 2.1 blks n 4.4 assist is not all star quality. Here's hoping the coaches get our back
