There is something wrong with the All-Star ballots
 
How can a man that barely played 5 or 6 games this year be a starter for the East All-Stars? At center nonetheless? Can someone explain? :confusedshrug:

Don't tell me it was the fans that chose him cuz I understand that part. I mean is there any justice as to starting someone who has actually PLAYED this season more than 20 games. Super stardom is an S.O.B. and people just vote for names. That's messed up.:banghead:

I agree with you 100%. Shaq wasn't even himself at all last night. He looked winded the whole time he played. Unfortunately the majority of voters don't look at stats. Names are all that matter. If they do this and I doubt this too, they only go by what they hear game commentators say.

It was a joke and I'm not going to get into the "Curry should make it" part.

Steve Nash and Dirk didn't get enough votes to start. BUT THEY GOT THE BEST RECORDS IN THE LEAGUE!!!!! It was a joke. Yao was one of the leading vote-getters and he's injured and has been replaced. I guess all the Asian votes he got from overseas are crying mutiny. That was pathetic. maybe the reserves will represent more of the folks that should be there.

thats the way it is nothing anyone can do about it, its not right but its not changing anytime soon, we all know its a popularity contest, but at the end of the day its just an all star game no use losing sleep over it.

I didn't know that either. I can't believe the fans.

I remember a few years ago in a post game show that Charles Barkley was talking about the flaws in the ballot system. That they should leave it up to the fans but if something were to happen like with Shaq now that they'd leave it up to reporters and coaches to elect the right candidate from the rest of the vote getters and what ever spot left on the reserves they would fill in by checking out the current stats of the players in the NBA. That was it would be everybody who deserves to be in the All Star game and not the ones that the fans WANT in the All Star game. Something like if the fans mess it up the media/coaches would clean it up. Now, that's a system that I see working for EVERYONE. But that's just me. What do I know?
