B. Knight, K. Kover or someone else?

I vote Knight. Bucks deserve an all-star

It's going to be Kover but it should be Knight. Three All Stars is enough for a team that might fall apart the second half of the season

this is ridiculous. i understand the impact kyle korver has on the hawks team and i understand that he is a good player but he's a role player. he has such a large impact because the team is build that way. he's not an all star. brandon knight is a far superior leader for a team then kyle korver is. People are seriously overreacting to the hawks. i know they are great and all and they resemble a lot of how the spurs dominate but i mean the spurs didnt have 4 all stars in the past few years. brandon knight deserver it way more then kyle korver does. all korver does is just spot up shoot and hit threes and thats it. come on people

What have they done to make you remotely think they might fall apart?

The Hawks play in the last two in a half months just haven't convinced me at all. Like someone said, the Spurs played like this for years with championships and playoff wins to show for it but never had four all stars.

When you think of a team with four all stars, that's a for sure conference finals teams. Can you say that about Atlanta?

Uh, yes. They've lost like 3 games in the past 2 and a half months.

I missed the early 00s when all stars were actually superstars and teams record has less weight.. This whole team's record thing is being blown out of proportion!!!

How come it was up to Adam Silver to name the replacement? Or has it always been this way?

I'm sorry but Korver making the all-star team is just wrong. He's a great spot up shooter and that's it. Just because he plays on a winning team shouldn't make him an all-star.

Brandon Jennings has had a better overall year and is more deserving.

Elite shooters are the most under appreciated players in the NBA.

But isn't this why we have the 3 point challenge? For great shooters?

He's saying people undervalue what shooter's bring to the table and contribute to their team. Korver is a great shooter who's had a great impact on the team, who actually deserves to be an all star.

Theo Ratliff was once a coaches selection in 01, so was Divac (and im a huge vlade fan)

Totally stars, right?

I meant Brandon Knight... Not Jennings, although Jennings has had a great year too bad he's injured.

Shame that the Bucks are having such a good season yet they couldn't get their first Allstar since 2004. 4 players for the Hawks. SMH

I'm okay with it.

Korver isn't just a great spot up shooter this season, he's entering an entirely new level of shooting with 50/50/90. History would frown upon the NBA if he ends up having the greatest shooting season in history and he wasn't in the game.

I would have been okay with Brandon Knight as well, and I suspect Brandon Knight may also get a spot if Melo bows out.

And really, the East is a LOT weaker than the West so using the Spurs as a comparison isn't really appropriate. There's always tons of snubs in the West. Also the Hawks were the only team in history to have a 17-0 month, so it's not like they're just doing minor stuff.

Anyway, Silver said in an earlier interview that replacements are chosen based upon Head Coach reserve votes for the most part, so it's not Silver saying that Korver is the most deserving, it's the other Head Coaches.

For all the people saying that Korver is a spot up shooter and nothing else, well they need to watch the Hawks. He makes great decisions with the ball, hustles on D and literally never stops moving when he doesn't have the ball. There's a reason he gets wide open looks.

its the greatest 3 point shooting year in history.. shooting over 50% from 3 seems impossible.. Miller and Allen never sniffed that.. its honestly unbelievable. i cant 50% of 3s in a video game. Korver might be the best pure 3 point shooter of all time. i think he deserve one all star game.

Melo might shut down for the season. So Knight should get in then. But i'd prefer Giannis really. Giannis most exciting player in NBA right next to Anthony Davis.

I'm looking forward to a lineup of Teague, Korver, LeBron, Millsap and Horford together on the court.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Kerr does with all the guards out West. At one point he may have to run a lineup of; Lillard - Westbrook - Harden - Klay - someone
