Who do you think makes the all-star this year? There is 13 days left in fan voting, but I'm not sure what current poll leaders are.

My guess lineups....

East:
Wall / Lowry
Wade / Butler/ DeRozan
James
George / Bosh / Millsap
Anthony / Drummond / Whiteside

West:
Curry / Westbrook / Paul
Harden / Thompson
Bryant / Leonard
Durant / Aldridge / Green
Griffin / Gasol


You can probably toss a coin for whether coaches will vote Whiteside or Pau Gasol, but I'm leaning towards Whiteside right now.

Yeah I think Whiteside deserves the nod.

Edit: forgot about Love. He should make it in over both.

Cavs have the best record in the East, so I think they'll get more than 1 all-star, especially since Blatt will likely be the coach of the East.

A more deserving player will get shut out if Kobe makes it shooting 34% FG and 25% from 3.

I think Aldridge has had a good season but others have as well.

Gallinari may not make it but he is putting up around 18ppg-6rpg

Bledsoe is out for the season. Lillard plays for a garbage team but he has a small chance. Davis is awesome and might make it for talent, but his team is garbage. Cousins is on a garbage team but has a lot of talent as well, making for a small chance. DeAndre Jordan??? The Clippers have underperformed but they get 3 All Stars while the team that could rank higher than them (Dallas) gets 0? I'd rather have Dirk Nowitzki in than any of the bolded names assuming the Mavericks maintain seed. I also think Marc Gasol should make it as he has the talent and the team record to justify his selection.

With the last spot a toss up between Love(for two Cavs Reps), Thomas or Jackson(dependent on team record)
I'd go with Thomas though.. most deserving imo.

West
Guards: Curry, Westbrook, Paul, Thompson, Harden
Frontcourt: Kobe, Kawhi, Durant, Griffin, Green, Davis

Last spot either Cousins for his output or Aldridge for 2x Spurs reps.
I'd go with Aldridge as I'd like to reward winning and the #2 seed should have at least 2 Reps.

DeRozan has played better than Wade and so has Butler. As for Bosh, you can certainly make the case for him. I put him up there. I'd rather see Wade than DeRozan so my preference is to pack this contest with the biggest names out there so I can watch a Kobe vs (1v1) tournament as they take turns. That's just what I want to see. Some people are really expecting a game 7 type Finals game but it never happens. Just enjoy the game haha.

That's just what I want to see. Some people are really expecting a game 7 type Finals game but it never happens. Just enjoy the game haha.

I agree with you and think everyone else would too on the big names part. That's why they let the fans vote for starters. Fans pay to go to the game so let them decide who they want to see start the game and let coaches pick the bench as they do. Fans pick the right players for the most part anyways. People who complain about Kobe starting drive me crazy because it's his last year and he's an all-time great why would you not want him to start in the all star game so the rest of the players can go at him as you said. Almost everyone that has voted has voted for Kobe by the looks of the votes because everyone wants to see a top 10 player ever in his last all star game. No different than Jordans or Magics.

As for Wade Derozan and Butler, yes they may have better numbers by a little but they also play a lot more minutes than him also. I would also argue Wade has more overall talent with him so he isn't really forced to go out and score as much as he can every night. As I said though he's the best player on the 3rd seed in the East so he definitely deserves to be an all star. We may not be the 3rd seed by the all star game because of this very hard stretch were about to go on on the road and how close the east teams are right now but as of right now we are so I don't see the problem with it. They also have Wade 9th right now in the MVP race which I know isn't a huge deal but others have to see how he's don't this year in only 29 MPG (which I think needs to increase).

You mention popularity and then have Butler starting? Why is Wade a reserve in your list if you said he doesn't deserve to be in based on production and the second unit isn't voted in by fans? Are you now suggesting popularity is affecting the coaching votes also? Why is Batum in 12th seed Charlotte popular among coaches? Why is a player on a 12th seed getting in above Reggie Jackson or Pau Gasol or any number of players on much better teams? Why is Kobe popular among coaches?

Ahhh! My head hurts... Your overall logic is extremely difficult to follow.

:facepalm:

right back atcha, Wade is not the Heat's best player. Chris Bosh is. And I had him as an honorable mention, meaning I'd not have any issue with him making the team. Same for Whiteside.


Dumb voters? And you're smarter than them?

Yes dumb and yes I'd say I am smarter than the average, dumb NBA fan (when it comes to voting for Kobe to start. Maybe it's for "all the old times" but I don't care to see a gimpy terrible Kobe Bryant play in an exhibition game). I want to see the best players on an all-star team and see them play together.

Ahhh! My head hurts... Your overall logic is extremely difficult to follow.

Because it's my own personal list and I can have who I want to be in the game? Stop being so upset because I said Wade doesn't belong to be there. You Wade homers are just on another level acting as if you guys have done something special this season. Butler deserves to be there but I put Wade in there for his POPULARITY. That's why I took DeRozan out for Wade. Butler has a compelling case to be a top three SG so why the hell should I leave him out? POPULARITY gets Wade over DeRozan for me but it doesn't overcome the level of play Butler has demonstrated.

The logic is "difficult" for you to follow because you are enamored with Wade and aren't following correctly. Simple: This is my own personal list. I feel Butler/DeRozan are having better seasons than Wade. Wade is more popular though and because of that, I feel he should be put over DeRozan strictly because there isn't a huge difference in the level of their play and because Wade is more popular. I don't think Wade is popular enough to start over Butler -- who has clearly cemented himself as a top three SG and someone who has played better. Is that too difficult to comprehend?

BuckWilliams
01-08-2016, 05:15 PM
Miami will get one All star and it's probably wade. There is no way he should be starting though. He should be like the 12th man on the East.

It's the SG/SF position in the NBA that has been WAY down for about 15 years now.

Isiah will make it, So will Jae Crowder. The league will put a few Celtics in.
Reggie Jackson might make it with Drummund from the Pistons.

The whole east is really bad once again. I don't see a lot of great players as usual. Also tired of the so called fans voting for the same lpayers from 2005 each season.

Not a lot of star players anymore.

Because it's my own personal list and I can have who I want to be in the game? Stop being so upset because I said Wade doesn't belong to be there. You Wade homers are just on another level acting as if you guys have done something special this season. Butler deserves to be there but I put Wade in there for his POPULARITY. That's why I took DeRozan out for Wade. Butler has a compelling case to be a top three SG so why the hell should I leave him out? POPULARITY gets Wade over DeRozan for me but it doesn't overcome the level of play Butler has demonstrated.

The logic is "difficult" for you to follow because you are enamored with Wade and aren't following correctly. Simple: This is my own personal list. I feel Butler/DeRozan are having better seasons than Wade. Wade is more popular though and because of that, I feel he should be put over DeRozan strictly because there isn't a huge difference in the level of their play and because Wade is more popular. I don't think Wade is popular enough to start over Butler -- who has clearly cemented himself as a top three SG and someone who has played better. Is that too difficult to comprehend?

Wait, what?

My head hurts a lot reading your post.

If your list ranks popularity it's flawed.
If your list ranks production it's flawed.
If your list disregards both current popularity and production and is based on your thinking of just who you think are the 12 best guys in each conference (like "if healthy" or something else arbitrary like "potential to be the best eventually"), somehow it's still flawed!


If you are ranking by popularity, 0% chance Butler starts over Wade.

If you're ranking by production... Irving is having a better season than Wade, Reggie Jackson, and Kemba Walker, Isaiah Thomas?

Why eees NiCoLaS bAtUm dere? Ahhhhhhh...... :bang:

Come on guy, just admit there is no logic there. It's just a list with no reasoning behind it, and that's totally okay if that's what you said from the start.

right back atcha, Wade is not the Heat's best player. Chris Bosh is. And I had him as an honorable mention, meaning I'd not have any issue with him making the team. Same for Whiteside.



Yes dumb and yes I'd say I am smarter than the average, dumb NBA fan (when it comes to voting for Kobe to start. Maybe it's for "all the old times" but I don't care to see a gimpy terrible Kobe Bryant play in an exhibition game). I want to see the best players on an all-star team and see them play together.

Well I voted for Kobe and I don't even like the guy as a player. But I do respect his contributions to the league and think it would be a good last farewell.

Do you mean there is only 8 all stars total or that the coaches pick 8 after the starters? I forgot about Thomas but for some reason I have a feeling he won't get voted in. Lmao at Jae Crowder though was that serious? The way I read your post it sounded as if you were saying Crowder is a sure thing to be an all star lol.

Do you know what this question is asking? For my own personal list. I feel Wade should be in it for popularity purposes. I feel Butler should be the starter because he is a top 3 SG.

I have Batum there because he's playing really well right now.

In no shape or form did I say my own personal list will be based strictly on popularity. I only put Wade there because of his popularity. Is that an issue you don't seem to understand? The logic isn't that I will put all the players based off popularity but more-so for Wade's case, I'd want him there for his popularity.

Parker? Gortat?!?

Parker has had a great season so far 'running' the team and I think the Spurs deserve more than one player in the All-Star Game. Obviously, Aldridge and Duncan would be more likely candidates, but I find it difficult to take Cousins or Griffin out for them. Thompson would probably be in ahead of Tony, especially after his hot start to 2016 after a slow start to the season.

I put Marcin ahead of P. Gasol because the times I have watched the Wizards he has played really well (especially since Nene has been out) and when I have watched the Bulls; Pau has not played as well as he usually does (not saying this is representative of the entire season so far). Also, Gortat won player of the week a couple of weeks ago. Edit: I completely forgot about Durant, I would take Parker out for him.
