Oh, the guy averaging 18/5/2 on a 27-18 team?

Vince Carter for me. Never had any success and seems to suffer a lack of loyalty, and lack of effort at times as well. I agreed with Charles Barkley, he's done.

If Carter doesn't make the ASG he shouldn't be called "underrated." Seems like everyone is picking at him these days. It makes it less fun for me, personally.

I couldn't agree more. Carter is a guy who has had one meaningful season in his entire career, when he took the Raptors on a deep playoff run. Other than that he has done nothing but a whiner and quitter. IT finally looks like his streak of undeserved all-star games will end this season.

Rarely do you ever see a third option being labeled as "untouchable". But since he's Luol Deng, Mr. Humanitarian, nothing negative can be said towards the guy. He's a well-mannered role model for kids, who doesn't throw his teammates under the bus (even if they suck), and that's all that matters to Bulls fans.

I'd also argue Hinrich and Gordon, but most people realized that neither were all that good to begin with.


surprising.

I would say Yao. Don't get me wrong he is good. But definately no where near what they make him out to be. He does not deserve to start in the All star game. He's soft.

then who do you think can be in all star game?

Amare, no defence
Camby, no offence
kaman, Al Jeffson , bad team canot win, and not so good statistics as Yao
the injured center of LA? still green.

Most important, Yao has outplayed most of them this year, even including Duncan, Howard in east
