I think we will see Raptors players on the East All Star team like Jonas, DeRozan and Lowry especially since it is in Toronto but for the Dunk Contest I can see a Raptors player in on this maybe T Ross since he is a former Dunk Champion

LOL.

Drummond has been a beast. I just like Millsaps game more and I think what he's been doing is flying under the radar.

Again, it's about who you want to see. More about your personal preference than anything else.

But even you can't argue that we will see Raptors players on the East All Star squad even if they make it in as reserves because with Lowry we know he will most likely start or even DeRozan based on Toronto fan votes but being honest I really do want to see Boston's Isaiah Thomas make the East All Star squad even if it is as a reserve

Way to justify and be civil my dude. Milsap is definitely a beast.

Naw he's just chilling and he's won the skills before. Maybe he does 3 point to add to the trophy case cause that one means more.

I'd like to see a Magic player make it. I think Vucevic is worthy. Obviously he'd come off the bench, but I don't care. Can't think of many centres in the east that are better than him.

Lowry should start I mean it is in Toronto and he plays for the Raptors and if All Star weekend is in Toronto you can bet he will not only be named to the East All Star team but it is almost a guarantee that he will start

You actually believe that Reggie Jackson has a better year than Kyle Lowry? LOL

Might wanna look up some numbers, because you can easily argue Jackson has been better or just as good as Lowry this year.

Go ahead look at the numbers and than look at the record of each team, lets not mention defense that doesn't show up in the stats. Lowry is miles ahead of Jackson this season and its not even close.

Brook Lopez and Hassan Whiteside over Vucevic? I'm feeling good about Vucevic's chances at making the all star game even though he's 15th in voting among front court players.

Have to agree here. Lowry has been the best defensive point guard in the eastern conference. His team currently has the fourth best record. That said, I put Jackson on the eastern all-star team.

Whiteside is in the conversation with Drummond for best center in the east. Vucevic is solid offensively, but he's weak defensively. Might as well take Love.

Vucevic isn't as bad defensively as a lot of people think. Vucevic is more than solid offensively. Offensively he's the best center in the east for sure. He clearly outplayed Hassan a couple of days ago.

You have three all stars from the heat and none on the Magic when they have the same record..

I could justify dropping Love for Vucevic, but Whiteside is clearly better.

I don't see how he's clearly better. If Vucevic keeps it up I see him making the all star.

Not Kobe, that's for sure. But he's clearly going to start.

As long as Zack LaVine does the dunk contest again I'll be happy. The rest, don't care who's in really. I'll watch whoever

Oh come on man, the numbers, the Record, everything suggests Reggie does not deserve to be an all star, and he's no where near as good as Lowry has been. I like Jackson but he is a complete no show in basically very loss we have.

So the Warriors who could reasonably go into the all-star game with 1 loss get 1 player, and the Clippers who are struggling to get to .600 get 3?

Meh that's probably the minority. A lot of people recognized his real potential. I'm one of those people that thought his ceiling was/is higher than prime Howard. I remember when Howard destroyed Drummond one time, and Drummond thanked Dwight for destroying him. I knew Drummond would be a beast in a few years. He's more fluid and has a softer touch than Dwight. Plus he's a little bigger. I still feel Drummond will fall short of his potential though. He won't even reach prime Howard level if he doesn't improve his FTs, and overall efficiency.

I actually don't give a crap what you said. Must be awkward to continue to get into arguments with me when you never win them. Just do you already, you aren't an authority at all. You and your drake posse are all just super goofy honestly.

Lowry is guaranteed to be at Toronto 2016 I mean not only is he a Raptor and considering he would have the hometown support in Toronto playing for the Raptors he would not only get voted in for that but he would start too especially given the fan votes in Toronto

DeRozan too will probably be named to the East All Star squad either as a starter or as a reserve

Especially given the hometown and for us Torontonians it is our first NBA All Star weekend
