Default Give me 3 reasons why Garnett is a deserving All Star

Other than the fans voting, why is he on the team? KG is an old man. His numbers are way down on an average team. I can't make any sense out of this.

Both Noah/Monroe should be playing over him

Yeah I'm with you on that. Definitely not something he deserved this season. Of course that's what you get with fans. Hell, we almost had Lin start over CP, could you imagine? Lol

Noah or Chandler clearly belong there

He obviously dosnt deserve it based on his play, there are others more deserving. But hes still more popular than the others that deserve it so what can you do. I doubt he will play too many minutes

He's on the team exclusively because of his popularity. That's the whole point of the fan voting thing...it rarely makes sense and its almost always the same starters.

If Chandler and Noah don't get the coaches votes, THAT will be a real tragedy. If they do, I'm 100% certain KG will play about 10 minutes and give those two all the shine.

Don't understand why people ever complain about the starters. Some years, like Iverson when he was in Detroit, I can see. But it is what it is. Every year there's probably going to be one or two starters in both conferences that are questionable and got in on reputation. Plenty of times, though, they're All-Star caliber players that year, but should be a reserve. I've just learned not to get upset over the starters, and save the griping for after when the reserves are announced.

Oh God.

Shut up already. If the fanbases of the players you think are so deserving felt the same way they would be starting. The fact that he maintained this popularity so deep into his career is remarkable alone.

15th All Star Selection. Deal with it.

1. KG's FG% higher than Noah and Monroe (%1% to 47% and 46%) Shooting above 50% at 26 years old is'nt easy.

- Was going to say defensive impact but Noah has had a huge impact this season and is a direct reason for the Bulls record

2. KG is playing 29 minutes a game while Noah is playing 38 and Monroe is playing 32, Per 36 minutes KG is averaging 17.8 points and 8.6 rebounds, those stats are pretty good for a 36 year old. http://www.basketball-reference.com/...garneke01.html

3. CONSISTENCY, Kevin Garnett's consistency playing in his 18th season is a miracle, not only does he still play consistent defense, he is a consistent source for Offense on the Celtics frontcourt.
