Default Billups traded, makes Calderone an allstar.

With billups being traded to denver, wasnt he competing for the backup job with calderone? Love it.

Detriot will be worse because of this move mark my words.

This doesn't change Jose's chances at an All-Star spot at all since Iverson will be listed as a guard and will likely get in.

Actually, it's a wash. The fans would have voted Billups as the starting PG, now they'll vote Iverson. The coaches will/would have selected Jose as the backup either way, if he stays healthy.


Hopefully nothing retarded happens, like the fans voting in Arenas or something stupid. Jose deserved to be an All-Star last year, but stupid Kidd got voted in.

we all have to do our part as well..

VOTE FOR THE JOSE, BOSH, O'NEAL !!!

And DON'T vote for prospective competing PGs!!!! (on ur second vote).. vote for those who have no chance of making (eg. Tyron Lue)

Iverson still will get more votes than Jose unless everyone in toronto or 1/4 of the population in canada + spain votes for Jose other wise its really hard for jose to get in. He's playing well atm so all I can hope is the coaches vote him in as reserve.

(Jose might have a hack of a time trying to defend him if he decides to shoot n drive like a maniac.)

jose needs a vid like bosh's cowboy vid last year.. maybe surrounding him and some bullfighting scene/plot

we just have pick Jose + Someone other than AI/D-Wade/VC/Allen/Ford/Arenas/Butler (say J. Dixon, Tyron Lue, ) using our 2 Guard votes

This doesn't help his All Star chances at all. If anything, it makes them worse because now one of the most popular players in the entire league is back in the Eastern Conference. Iverson will definitely be an All Star and would just take over the spot that Billups would've occupied.

I'd rather Jose skip the all-star festivities.

He's gonna be logging a lot of minutes, last thing he needs is to be burned out during all-star weekend.

The PGs at West are seriously stacked:

CP3
Deron
Nash
Billups
J-Kidd
Parker
Baron

HOLY SMOKES!

Wade
Iverson are the starters

Joe Johnson
Richard Hamilton
Ray Allen (less likely)
Vince Carter
Michael Redd (improbable)

Are the guards that he will have to contend with for the remaining spots at guard. Can he make it? Possibly. Will he? Don't bet the house on it.

This trade doesn't change a thing in terms of Jose all-star chances.

Both Iverson and Billups are guards so nothing changes at all, except now it's a guarantee that a Detroit guard makes the all-star game.

Pretty much. Raptors will need to have a top three record in the East and Calderon will need to average at least 14/10 for him to have a great chance to be voted in by the coaches.
