Wrong. Only time that is allowed is if it's the player's last year in the league & they've been a great player. The year before AI retires, then he deserves to be in the all star game, out of respect for all he's done. Same with Shaq, KG, Duncan, Dirk, etc. But unless thats the case, no one DESERVES to be in the all star game even if they aren't having the best year. No one. If your not the best, you don't deserve to be there.

We all know that the players well known by everybody will always get voted in regardless (eg. Kobe, AI), but Bruce frikkin Bowen? Are you kidding me? More popular than Dirk and Carmelo?????? And how did he jump so much in the last returns? Ron Artest is understandable considering he has China voting for him.

Something is really fishy regarding the bruce Bowen situation. Is this an Antoine Walker situation(remember from last year?) that was actually more successful?

Really?

Allen Iverson 18ppg/3.3reb/5.5apg/42%fg

Vince Carter 21.5ppg/5reb/4.7apg/44%fg
Devin Harris 21.8ppg/3reb/6.4apg/44.5%fg
Joe Johnson 22ppg/4.5reb/6apg/43%fg

All-star my ass...

And Bowen´s votes are pretty impressive

Look at all the Spurs' players' votes, they made a huge push at the end. Duncan and Manu got around 1 million extra votes in those few weeks. By comparison, Yao's votes only went up several hundred thousand in those weeks - no one had as big of an increase at the end as the Spurs' players.

The only explanation I see is all those same Spurs fans who voted for Duncan/Manu etc voting him in as the second forward. Probably got some help from the French and Argentinians as well.

PS I'm shattered that Yi didn't make it

Ok so, CP got more votes from his last return than he did in the FIRST FOUR? CP is no doubt the better of the two, but T-Mac didnt withdraw till the last day or so, they shouldn't have made it this obvious.

The last returns they allowed the public to view was on 1/8. Arena balloting ended on 1/9. The arenas most likely didn't even turn their ballots in until after 1/9. Good thing China doesn't get arena ballots or the entire Rocket roster would have been in the All-Star game.

I'd rate the matchups like this (based on this season only):

Chris Paul > Allen Iverson
Kobe Bryant = Dwyane Wade
Amare Stoudemire < LeBron James
Tim Duncan > Kevin Garnett
Yao Ming < Dwight Howard

Funny!

It's just great how stupid avarage fans are, Bynum got so many votes just because he plays in L.A and every one is hyping him. Although he ain't that good (yet). Same with all the Rockets votes. This just makes me laugh. Aren't there those voters who vote based on how players actually play

And there seem to be some fishy stuff with the vote changes between these last two

Some weird arse sh*t right there. Overall though I'm quite happy with the starters, all have been/are superstars.
