    I know the west is loaded up front but, if this is right, Pau Gasol got totally screwed again.

    It just goes to show you how much talent is in the West.

    Looks about right to me. Parker missed a lot of games, I just don't think Gasol is good enough or played well enough to be an Allstar.

    Also if that is correct, Shaq should not be on the team, he regularly sits out games on purpose - anyone who does that should not be an allstar

    I'm sure some Knick fans will gripe about David Lee not being named but I don't see anyone on that list I'd replace with him. I can probably make an argument with Joe Johnson or Vince (have 4 forwards and 3 guards instead of the other way around) but I don't think I'd win it.

    Nice to see Granger get in. I'm sure there will be arguments about him and Al Jefferson but I never buy the team record argument when it comes to the ASG - I think it has some validity when we're talking all-NBA teams at the end of the season and a LOT of validity for MVP but not the ASG.

    If this is correct I wouldn't be surprised.

    A few people were on here preaching Lewis, and Hedo might get in over Granger and I thought it was an absolutely joke. I had this sneaking feeling that Jameer Nelson had a better chance than both of them. That's who I thought deserved it more than anyone else on the team not named Dwight.

    Gasol/Billups all deserve to be there more than Nash/CAnthony. I have a hard time saying that Parker should be there over DWilliams though. I'm glad Big Al made it. Behind Yao and Howard, he's probably the best C in the league.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    NBA 2k9 is that same game that leaked the new OKC Thunder jerseys so this is probably legit.

    Congrats to Danny! I think by the time the season is over, there'll be no doubt in anyones mind that he deserved the All-Star nod.

    The only names I'd argue on that unofficial list is Vince Carter and Shaq. All others I'd say are deserving to be there.

    One name I'd change from the official starter's roster is AI. No way has he played well enough to be an All-Star this year.

    This is not a leak. The guys who do 2ks roster make a guess about who is going to be a reserve. They're guess is just as good as ours, not to mention this allstar roster came out the day the starters were announced. So they could not have possibly known who the reserves are. The 2k guys will make changes to the reserves once announced if need be,

    Looks very plausible to me, at the least.

    i hope this is not true because if it is it means the coaches don't know a thing about basketball.

    Williams might be OK but now that you bring it up, I have Nash on a fantasy team and I can guarantee this is not one of his better years. He already has an MVP trophy he doesn't deserve - no reason to give him a free ASG pass too.

    Only change I could see is Lewis in place of Nelson.

    Also I'm a little surprised that Billups got no love, I'd have put him in over Nash.
