    Default Modest change in all-star balloting

    Obviously this is motivated by realizing JO probably won't start because of Hill and Vince.

    This problem has occured in the past with Gs as well, where two SGs start, snubbing a PG.

    I think the balloting should make you vote for one player per conference for all 5 positions, PG, SG, SF, PF, C. Rather than how it is now where you vote for two players for conference for G and F, and then still one for C.

    Agree, disagree? Care?

    Agreed. If center is singled out, why not the other positions? That would force people to pick Garnett OR Duncan in the west, not both. That could be interesting.

    seems logical...but it brings up other issues... with teams like the Suns who don't employ your typical starting five....like Shawn Marion... he's obviously a small forward in size and skill set.... yet he starts at power forward for the Suns....what category does he fall into?

    I think names should be picked out of a hat, and that the winning side gets home court in the finals.

    "And for the east starters: Eddie Gill, Ron Mercer, Ira Newble, Christian Laettner, and Jason Collier."

    "And for the west starters: Kevin Garnett... well this game is over."

    If he's playing PF this season, you put him as a PF. Vice versa w/ SF.
