    Default 2011 All Star game....

    http://www.nba.com/allstar2011/players/index.html

    This will obviously be an incomplete list, because there are always late substitutions due to injury. We already know Yao will be replaced.

    West:

    Starters-

    C: Yao Ming
    PF: Kevin Durant
    SF: Carmelo Anthony
    SG: Kobe Bryant
    PG: Chris Paul

    Reserves-

    Tim Duncan
    Manu Ginobili
    Dirk Nowitzki
    Russell Westbrook
    Pau Gasol
    Deron Williams
    Blake Griffin


    East:

    Starters-
    C: Dwight Howard
    PF: Amare Stoudemire
    SF: LeBron James
    SG: Dwayne Wade
    PG: Derrick Rose

    Reserves-
    Rajon Rondo
    Paul Pierce
    Ray Allen
    Kevin Garnett
    Joe Johnson
    Al Horford
    Chris Bosh

    If Kevin Love doesn't replace Yao, then it's a complete travesty.

    Kevin Love, Nene, David West and Lararcus Aldridge probably got snubbed, but it's tough, tough competition out west. I understand why they might not have got chosen.

    They did a horrible job choosing.

    There's a bunch of teammates in the All-Star game and a bunch of overrated selections, IMO.

    You could make an argument for ZBo above him. Assuming Love is replacing Yao.

    A couple of early observations:

    -Boston at 37-11 gets 4 all-stars, but San Antonio at 40-8 only gets two. A couple of things went against Tony Parker here. One, he plays in a deeper conference, and he also ran into perhaps the season of point guards in NBA history. It would have been difficult to justify four point guards when so many deserving big men were also on the bubble.

    -Kevin Love is the odds on favorite to get selected by David Stern to replace Yao, but for obvious reasons, Blake Griffin should start.

    The Ghost of Tim Duncan should not be in this game.

    It was a conundrum. You can't justify only taking one spur, but you also can't justify taking four PGs. Duncan was the beneficiary of a numbers game.

    Joe Johnson and Al Horford shouldn't be in it. I expected Josh Smith to be in it instead of those 2.

    A lot of overrated players on decent teams are on this list.

    The 2009 All-Star game was really good. They chose really good players no matter the team's record and Danny was one of them and he deserved it.

    There were all different players representing different teams.

    6 teams representing the east? I mean, I know we're the weaker conference, but c'mon...

    Horford and Johnson without a doubt both deserve to be in.

    Joe Johnson should absolutely be on it. He's playing out of his mind, in January he probably played the best ball of his career, 27 ppg, 4.4 rbs, 5 ast, close to 55% from the floor.

    I mean , I know he had a tough stretch before the injury, but he's gone on a tear since coming back.

    Horford as been the anchor of that team, he deserves it as well.

    Besides, if we really want to write in someone, let that be Boozer. Probably for Bosh, altough I understand why he's on that team.

    Valid point.



    At first glance, I like the East's line-up more than the West's.

    First of all, it shows how weak the eastern conference is in terms of superstar players, that you could barely get a list of 12 to qualify this season, injuries had a part to do with it but still. I would only replace Joe Johnson with Boozer, just cause I think Booz is doing as good of a job on a better team, but maybe they wanted another guard.

    As far as the west goes, I guess Ginobili had to make it but I had him off my list just cause of the sheer number of great players out west. Kevin Love better be Stern's pick, but Blake Griffin should actually start the game. Aldridge in Portland should feel snubbed as should Z Bo or Rudy Gay from the Grizzlies, them being over .500 out west is quite a feat.

    As Kstat said Tony Parker was part of a number's game, as there's no way he makes it even over a Steve Nash type, there would have to be at least 2 injuries for him to make it.

    The only thing Pacer related it might do is open a spot for Paul George in the Rookie Game w/ Blake I assume resting for the big show.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    If Kevin Love doesn't make the team, I'm not watching the game. It's just complete stupidity that a guy averaging 20/16/3 with 45% on threes isn't one of the top reserves.

    Is this year the best indication ever that name value comprises 70% of the vote (starters and coaches)? There's NO reason that Duncan or even Griffin should be in front of Love (much less Yao and Gasol).

    I think Steve Nash should have made it. I don't care how many other points guards there are Westbrook/Deron Williams could play the two this game. Steve Nash is too good to not be an all star.

    Rudy Gay and LaMarcus Aldridge are also deserving. The Grizzles are not a great team by any means but Rudy is a heck of a player. And what LaMarcus Aldridge is doing in the absence of Brandon Roy is amazing.

    Kevin Love not making the team is a joke. I don't care if he replaces Yao the fact that he isn't already on the team is a joke.

    There will always be the guys snubbed though. It's never going to be perfect. I still hate fans being able to vote the starters. If they had put Allen Iverson on the list he would be a starter.

    Steve Nash would have been the 5th point guard behind Parker. He had zero chance of getting in.

    Nash isn't the dominant force he once was and his team isn't winning anymore.

    That would be really dumb there would be a lot of snubs. In baseball there are a lot more players so that really isnt that bad bad but in basketball it would be really dumb.

    That would mean Andrea Barnyard would be an all star or better yet Boobie Gibson or whoever get in from Clevelend he would be the worst all star of all time
