Deron is playing good no doubt but Okur could have argued to be included in the last 2 All-Star events.

Deron should have been added to the skills challenge.

I believe that Okur should be there but Williams has a better case to be there. I hope that no one really believes that the All-star game is an indicator of how good a player is!

Some conspiracy theorists believe that Deron will be snubbed untill CP3 gets his first AS bid. Why? Because the NBA has invested so much in Paul being the next big thing at PG, that they couldn't possibly admit that Deron might be better... Go figure.

I'm already convinced Deron IS the better selection... The fact that Chris Paul has been injured both seasons he's been in the league alone makes the Jazz's pick a wiser one.

I'd be inclined to disagree. The West AS team has ONE pg: Tony Parker(who's really more of a shooter than a passer).

The supposed All-Star game has turned into a whopping BIG pile of HORSE****!!!.......

That game was ridiculous, it was like watching the old legends game that they use to have

Bring back the defense!! They were playing TiddlyWinks out there.....
