    3rd spot is realistic.. Higher than that is unlikely..

    Well, if we have best record at All-Star break. That would make Vogel coach, so we would have somebody there.
    "Coach Vogel, what do you plan to bring to the All-star game?"

    -"Well something I've been curious to know over the years is what if we took one of the teams in the All-star game and had them play smash mouth basketball. And I think everyone knows at this point that you can't have smash mouth basketball without Tyler Hansbrough. So I guess to answer your question, I'm bringing Tyler Hansbrough to the All-star game."

    Could you see a scenario where the Pacers have the best record in the East and get no players on the All Star team?

    Both are very much in play right now.
    That would never happen. The coaches vote for reserves, and they pick players

    UB, it happened to the Pistons in 2002. I'm sure it's happened before that too.

    Coaches do not always pick players off winning teams. That's a huge misconception about all-star games.

    I think they would be better without Lebron or Wade. They are the same type of player. Both are successful with very similar styles, though Lebron is bigger and more durable. Wade more clutch.

    Just look at how we played against Miami last year when they had Wade and Lebron, and then look at this year without Wade, and recent years with Wade in Miami alone and Lebron in Cleveland alone

    The Heat were arguably the best defensive team in the league last season with leBron and Wade shutting down the wings.

    I don't think they mesh well on offense, but defensively they are dynamite.

    A team that came within two wins of the NBA championship last season would be better without one of their top two players?

    This.

    It is utterly ridiculous that we're still debating this.

    You can argue that they might be better off with say Dwight Howard instead of LeBron or Wade, but to argue addition by subtraction is insanity.

    I would be happy if all of our guys got to rest that weekend. Our the season is more important than the flash of one weekend.

    This.

    The short and tight 66-game schedule will definitely affect the team's stamina as the season goes on, so the more rest they can get, the better for the team on the last stretch of the season.

    But if our players deserve the recognition (Hibbert for All-star, PG for RSG is the most probable scenario), then much better for the team getting some media attention and their individual careers getting additional items in their resume.

    11 games into the season... Miami was 3rd place in their own division at this point last year.
    they have had a year to mesh. They should already have it together.

    They had it together already. Then the coach decided to scrap the halfcourt defensive philosophy and play D'Antoni ball with Udonis Haslem at center.

    Ok, but 2002 was 10 years ago

    I don't think the Pacers have any all stars. That's what I like about this team
