No way he makes it over Pierce. You also have Granger and Iggy to contend with. Pacers/Sixers are also winning just like the Bulls. As someone said if coaches wanted to give Chicago a certain amount of AS he'd make it that way. But just off performance? He has other guys right there with him.

He's not better than Bargs,Josh Smith,Bosh or Amare so I dont know how he would make it to the ASG as a reserve.

Bargs plays for the Raptors, thats a big strike against him making AS over Deng.

Is that seriously how they do things? Anyways, Bargs is playing at an elite level this season. The Raps are near .500 with him in the lineup.

You're not from America? But yeah, thats pretty much how its done with the AS selections in the NBA. Near .500 isnt good enough.

No...actually, it's quite simple...

If the Bulls have the best record in the league by all-star break and if Deng puts up numbers (*and more importantly be a force on defense, something he does more than Granger and Pierce--who is good on D, but is not asked to cover the other team's best player night in and night out*) then he should be an All-Star reserve...

Boston is still an under .500 team....They don't need two all-stars..Rondo is enough...

Not true. But I could see Deng making it out of respect for Chi's record.

When the reserves get to be announced? For a minute I thought it's today, right now... But it isn't, right?

Doesnt sound quite simple. Sounds like you feel Deng should make the AS. It'll come down to the coaches determining if Chicago should have x amount of AS players. Deng has competition for the reserve spot. That is clear as day. Whats unclear is how the coaches will go about choosing them. Not so simple afterall. Pierce is a veteran and that'll win him brownie pts.

Who cares if they are the best team in the league? The Cavs two years in a row as the best team in the league didn't have two AS's. It wasn't until a Jameer Nelson injury that the Cavs got a second AS. The second year only 1 AS. Record does matter, but it isn't that important when picking the reserves.

Ok, Bargs record>Amare's record with the Knicks. Do you think that Amare is going to make it?

If anyone from Boston makes it it has to be Rondo. You can't have PP and not Rondo. Same with Ray Allen and KG has been playing good as of late.
