The only thing here is that PRIOR to the all-star selection I personally talked to many fans, serious and casual, who thought I was nuts to think that Roy could make the AS game. I would say "Roy's going to make the AS game this season" and got "you're crazy" as a response.
I wasn't getting any "yeah, he probably will". And this is the Pacers/Indy fanbase, not national.
Let's not rewrite history here because someone didn't like the term "laughing". Nearly everyone agreed that Roy was having a nice year but that he benefited greatly from injuries to other players and that even on his own team there was a more important/worthy AS player.
Roy also faced no Howard and no Bosh in the playoffs and had NO 20 point games and didn't put up stats of domination other than blocked shots. If you have an all-star C going against the backups for the other team every single game, he should crush them.
That's the concern. Roy hasn't come into his own yet. He didn't go have a Smits vs Ewing battle where despite Ewing he was still able to get 25 and 12 and be the guy that Ewing had trouble stopping, and did it 4 of the 6 games to the point that you had to beat the Pacers in some way other than stopping Roy, ie he's going to get his but that's okay.
