Taking a que from the Pro Bowl - I would say the West will win 155-152 as Manning tosses the game away and Vandy misses a last second field goal attempt.

Carlisle said on his radio show last week exactly how he is going to handle substitutions.

before the game it will be all mapped out to the point that Rick said he will put the exact times on the board as to when so and so will go into the game and everyone will play the same amt of minutes until the last 5 or 6 minutes when the combo of players who played the best will finish the game.

:laugh: Why am I not surprised? But then, this WILL avoid any "Isiah snubbed us, let's get'm later!" talk from any of the players.

My guess as to the last 5-6 minutes:

Kidd
Iverson/Pierce/McGrady (take your pick, really)
Artest
O'Neal
Wallace

Oh, and I voted West. Everyone and their mother knows I want the East to win, but the poll asks who I thought woud win, not who I wanted to win or think could win.
