Deron Williams barely getting All-Star votes
 
I think D-Will needs some PR help. He's not gonna start, but he certainly deserved higher votes than he's getting so far

He plays for Utah. What would you expect?

Yep, I doubt he'd ever be the type who'd get voted in by the fans. Hopefully the coaches will pick him this year, although that may be a longshot too.

Stockton and Malone used to start in All-Star games all the time, no excuses.

The point is, him playing for Utah is not the reason he's getting no votes ... as Stockton and Malone played for Utah and would start in All-Star games.

It's certainly part of it. Look how many great point guards there is to votefor too.

Yeah and AC Green also got voted in ahead of Karl once and the Lakers had 3 guards the one year(Kobe's first on hype not cuz he deserved it) while Stockton stayed home.

It definitely plays a part in it.

I didn't say they started nin every All-Star games, but they had their fair share of starts.

So could Deron? Nash is getting older and McGrady could come off the ballot next year.

So whats your point? We all know Deron is better then 85% of the people who make it

Re: Deron Williams barely getting All-Star votes
 
But it's still debatable as to rather he's ever deserved to make it or not or does this year either.

Deron definitely deserves to be in the All-Star. He's the reason I even look at the Jazz.

Exactly. No one looks at the Jazz besides the jazz fans.

He deserves it because of his play or because of you?

Paul and Nash are having better years yet again at the point statistically. With McGrady(?), Kobe, Roy, Parker, Billups, Brooks and Ellis also in the running at guard. Suns, Lakers, Denver, Portland, SA are having better years than the Jazz and we know that's the first thing they look at not stats. Certainly arguable as to rather he deserves it.
