Thumbs up Due Away With The Fan Voting

ANOTHER YEAR THE SUNS WILL NOT HAVE ANY STARTER IN THE ALL-STAR GAME. T-MAC IS AHEAD AHEAD OF NASH IN VOTES! WADE IS AHEAD OF KIDD! FANS VOTING IS THE WORSE IDEA EVERY! HOW CAN PLAYERS ON BAD TEAMS AND PLAYERS THAT ARE HURT FOR MOST OF THE YEAR GET VOTED IN! AMARE NEEDS TO BE THE STARTING CENTER INSTEAD OF YUO BUT HE WILL ALWAYS BE THE STARTING CENTER CAUSE OF THE CHINESE! I STILL CANT BELIEVE YI IS EVEN ON THE BALLOT! ANYWAYS THEY SHOULD DO AWAY WITH LETTING FANS VOTE AND LET THE TOP TEAMS WITH THE BEST RECORD PLAYERS BE IN THE ALL-STAR GAME.

i agree 100% the fan voting is a complete joke! and makes a mockery of all players involved. its nothing more then a glorified 'popularity' contest. i mean how can a 2 time MVP such as Steve Nash not be a starter for an all star team? how is T-Mac and AI even ahead of him? Kobe i can understand, but T-Mac? Iverson? c'mon! what a joke! sticking with the theme how can D. Wade be ahead of Kidd? and why is Wade or Arenas even on the ballot? both have been out injured like all season! they need some guidelines and or restrictions to stop ignorant fans voting based strictly on popularity and get them to actually vote based on performance! and your right, why is Yi even on there as well? what has he done?
All Star Voting + Fans = Joke

the All-Star game is all about the fans... the voting has to go on... maybe they should organise a superstar game or what nots...

they just need some rules or something with this, like if you miss X amount of games you are never eligible to be voted in

I agree that Yao gets an advantage because of the Chinese vote.

That being said, have you compared Yao's and Amare's stats? Not sure why Amare is a lock for the starting position.

Yao:

22.1 pts
10.5 reb
2.4 ast
2.3 blk
49% FG
85% FT

Amare:

22.3 pts
9.2 reb
1.2 ast
2.2 blk
58% FG
75% FT

Amare beats Yao in FG% and Yao beats Amare in FT%. Other than that, Yao has a 1 rpg and 1 apg advantage. Thats about it. Not much difference.

only reason your boy Yao gets the nod over Amare is because the entire Chineese and Japaneese demographics vote for him!

Actually the reason why Yao gets the nod over your boy Amare is the fact that he is a better player and simply more deserving.

Did you ever think of that?

no he doesnt think about that, because amare is better to him even though he has worse stats, and steve nash who could make kwame brown look amazing.
