    Thank God Yi Jianlian wasn't an All Star

    That would've been the most ridiculous/pathetic choice EVER. All because of his greater fan base country voting for him. We need to change the voting system some how guys.


    If you don't bleed Dodger Blue, then somethings wrong with you...

    I thought he was going to get in. How did he not get in with so many votes he had. Bruce Bowen had tons of votes for his favor as well.

    They should use the same system as the NFL and the fan voting only counts for 1/3.

    I just think the fans vote shouldnt count 100% for the starters. Cause if he makes it and has a terrible season then you know there's a problem. They would be forced to make a change.

    Why? So if the Chinese League has an All Star weekend, they should let every other country vote for the all stars and everyone votes for an injured sucky player when there are plenty of other players that are not injured and are averaging allstar stats.?


    I know for sure they wouldn't want that.

    well the NBA has a bunch of people from other nationalities sooo yea they should be able to vote.

    im not agreein that Yi should be in the game but when you think about it im sure there are a bunch of homers who vote for people on their team whether they are deserving or not, its just that CHina has a crapload of people
    so personally i think they should just get rid of fan voting

    Ya, I'm not saying we should let everyone vote except China but I also don't think it's racist to not let the fans from other countries vote. IMO The fans vote should only be 1/3 of their decision while the coaches have the 2/3 majority.

    This Thread is about a week late.......

    After the All Star Starters were announced and Yi didn't make it......It was done. Case Closed.

    Why are you guys saying thank god now?

    He wasn't going to make the reserves......

    do you think the 1/3 would do much then?
    i see no point jus let the coaches vote they get most of the all-stars right with a few snubs here and there but its better than seeing yi and bowen get a bunch of votes

    instead i think fans should vote for the other events
    the league should ask a bunch of players if they want to be in the dunk contest
    and then the fans vote on who they want to see
    i think that would be better without causing a bunch of controversy
