    Shaq being starting center is a traves-sham-mockery.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Veteran Austin Croshere, the longest-tenured Pacers player on the roster, has proven reliable when called upon, invariably ready to step in regardless of the circumstance.

    Well, the All-Star game is a reflection of the fan favorite more than it is a recognition of in-season accomplishment. I think a better reflection of that would be the selections the coaches make. But, all in all, I have no problem with Shaq making it. The fans want the popular guy, not necessarily the people who deserve it more. It's the world through the eyes of Sportscenter!

    J.O. should be starting over Bosh. He's the better player on the better team. Of course these are the same Canadians who got Vince Carter voted in over Michael Jordan, so what can you do?
    Howard should be starting over JO tho.

    Who really cares about the All-Star game anyway? I'd rather see the players that get awards deserve them. The all-star voting is just a popularity contest anyway.

    Howard is a Center not a Forward in the voting. Howard (1,464,613) was less than 158,000 votes from beating out Shaq(1,622,446).

    Forwards:
    LeBron James (Clev) 2,516,049;
    Chris Bosh (Tor) 1,091,263;
    Jermaine O’Neal (Ind) 934,749

    Why Not Us ?

    Nah.

    JO's still better. Better scorer, far better defender. Better passer. That far outweighs Howard's slightly superior rebounding.


    But I do agree with you that Billups should be starting over the massively overrated black hole Gilbert "Defense? DEFENSE?!?! WHO NEEDS STINKIN' DEFENSE??!?!?!" Arenas

    Even worse is a soon-to-be 3-time MVP not getting the starting nod (Nash).

    Fans are idiots.

    Btw, where the hell did Arenas come from? Not that he doesn't deserve it, but he must have gotten a major rush of votes at the last minute.

    Better inside player in what? Hockey? He is sure not a better offensive player then Jermaine, IN any category. Not one.

    Howard has a better offensive post game then Jermaine. Jermaine is more of a jumpshooting PF for some reason.

    That is possibly the most ridiculous thing you have ever said. The main knock against Dwight is his lack of a refined post game because of the fact that his footwork is far from good in the post. He's extremely athletic and gets a ton of points from putbacks and hustle, but he and Jermaine are on opposite spectrums when it comes to their inside games.

    I guarantee that if you polled all NBA coaches not one would say that Dwight has a better post game.

    Lies. He is not close to the low post player that JO is, Jermaine shoots jump shots, doesnt mean he doesnt play in the post.

    I'm not going to get into any debates. I'll just let Dat Dude speak for me...I'm pretty sure we see eye to eye on any debate here.

    ok maybe i need to explain what i meant. Dwight is a more physical, post up player. He scores more baskets from tip ins and offensive rebounds, he is stronger and has a better knack for the ball in the paint.

    Is that better?

    Simply put - JO is scared of contact.

    Sure, but what you just said is completely different from saying that Dwight has a better inside game.

    Jermaine is better then Dwight in every offensive category (except for offensive rebounding) he is better at help defense and blocking shots, he is a better free throw shooter, and a better passer.

    Dwight is more physical and rebounds better. Don't get me wrong, I love Dwight, and I think he's one of the best rebounders in the league, but the way JO has played this season, Dwight has a long way to go.

    There's a difference between being physical and being a post-up player. Shaq-in-Orlando was physical, while Hakeem was a post-up player. What happened when they met in the finals?

    Well seeing as how the AllStar game is all about fun and ratings, hw about the fact that Howard is simply more fun to watch?
