He would have to get more votes over LeBron and KG, and now Chinese NBA Fans know who those players are, but then it's the same country that voted Yao over Shaq in so who knows.

Not only that but do you know which players got snubbed and didn't get to participate in the allstar game back in 2003 when Yao was voted in as a starter?

China may have cast more votes for Yao, but the rest of the world outside of the US voted for Shaq. Been well-documented that Shaq won the electric vote in those early years (only North America does paper voting). Yao won the paper vote.

Guys, please cut the racist bull**** and general idiocy down to the normal level, if possible. Oh, and the idea that Yao Ming won the arena ballot over Shaq due to "Chinese ex-pats" is really ****ing stupid. How many Chinese-Americans are attending a game between, for example, Portland the Jazz in Salt Lake City, and what percentage of the crowd would that be? Think.

Only way to keep Yi out of an all-star game is to not have his name on it this season.

Maybe next year or two years later, he will be averaging 18 and 8, 20 and 9, or 17 and 10 along with 1.8 blocks.

from wiki:

Many basketball fans have criticized Yao's All-Star selections, claiming that he could not be voted in as a starter without the substantial number of votes he receives from his native China, as the NBA had extended its online fan voting for the All-Star starters to that country for the first time in 2002-03. These fans are quick to point out China's massive population as an unfair advantage in favor of Yao. Yao's main Western Conference rival at center in his first two seasons, Shaquille O'Neal, has also cited Yao's support from Chinese fans as the reason why he receives more All-Star votes. However, despite the significant backlash against Yao, no actual figures have yet been provided to prove that Chinese fans have ever been the deciding factor in All-Star voting. In fact, for the 2004 All-Star Game, the year in which Yao won the starting spot by the smallest margin in his career, he actually received around 4,000 fewer online votes than his rival, Shaquille O'Neal. Yao managed to make up for this by outvoting O'Neal in paper balloting. These paper ballots were handed out in NBA arenas and shopping malls in the United States and Chinese fans were unable to vote on them. Thanks to paper balloting, Yao went on to finish ahead of O'Neal that year by a margin of 29,000 votes overall.
ment.

ive also read other various articles on this years ago.

I agree, so what if the chinese are voting him in, it's a popularity vote. Nowhere does it say "if you have too many goddamn people in your race, you cannot vote." What kind of racist BS is that? Blacks and whites vote for their respective players all the time, so why can't the chinese? Yao and Yi aren't even the most popular players in China, its Lebron. His shoes and jersey are their number 1 sellers. Mcgrady started last year. The chinese voted him in. How come its ok for them to vote for Tmac and not Yao or Yi? Is it because he's black?

The guys who are crying over Yao and Yi are prob the same ones who cry over Nash and Dirk winning mvp: the ones who can't admit the fact ppl of other race are capable of competing in the NBA. Get with the times jerks, the NBA is going international.
