    They need to pick the best 24 players regardless of conference Joe Johnson making the team is a joke. West had 3-4 guys who deserved to be in the game who make it under the format I suggest.
    Zach Lowe suggested that two weeks ago.

    I didn't see that, but it is a pretty good and easy fix to the talent difference. Not surprised it has already been suggested. I am sure it was a suggestion a long time ago. I just heard about the pro bowl having a draft and that is what made me think of it. I think a draft would be another good thing as well. Wouldn't it be fun to see Durant and LBJ play together will never happen with the current system.

    Let me make my point as clear as can be. DWEST is more important to this team hanging a banner next season than Lance.

    Without DWEST we got no shot at an NBA Title. Whereas without Lance I believe we would still have a shot.

    I don't give a darn about AS games etc. I care about Titles and for anyone thinks Lances role on this team is more vital than DWEST in an attempt to hang a Banner, I am going to very simply respectfully disagree.

    Lance right now, is our best player...and in future, he will be an All star, and I believe an Hall of Famer

    For me, PG24 is our best player, by far, MVP.
    2nd best Hibbert, for his presence in defence, but im saying Lance is playing the best ball in last few games...

    Knowing what Lance can do and how much of a showboat he is, can be and IMHO wants to be....I think that not including Lance is a mistake. Not because he deserves it over other Players....but purely from an entertainment perspective. Who wouldn't want to see Lance playing in a game ( on a national audience ) where he's allowed to go all "Rutgers Park" without any care of committing a turnover?

    I don't think he did but I had 4 people in the west who should have got in over a few people in the east.

    Idk if this board overvalues Lance, or the coaches undervalue him, but it's probably something in the middle. I honestly thought he was a shoo-in, but I think the fact that Derozan has evolved into a legit number one option, Lowry is having a killer year in a down year for PG's in the east, and JJ has the reputation, Lance was the odd man out. It shouldn't be looked at as some type of travesty, he's 23, and if he's as good as most posters seem to think he is/going to be, then he has plenty of AS years ahead of him.

    I really think it's for the best that Lance didn't make it. It's going to be tough to keep him but making the all star team would have likely been the nail in the coffin. I wish West would have made it for all he's done for this team but I understand. We have a lot of guys making personal sacrifices for the good of the team.
    Hopefully Lance will be mature about this and take this as a motivation.

    Legit #1 options don't shoot 43% from the field.

    This is just not true. West was instrumental in creating this teams makeup. He was the leader we needed when no one else was stepping up. Now? Roy Hibbert and Paul George are leaders in their own right. George Hill, Danny Granger, and Lance Stephenson are all veterans with playoff experience. We have a very mature team. West was HUGE in helping building this teams maturity, but at this point he is not more important than Stephenson.

    NOTE: I'm not saying West isn't needed anymore before someone tries taking that out of context. I'm simply saying Lance can take our team to a level Paul George can't even do. Lance has the ability to get others easy shots and to push a fast break when the other team is sleeping.

    When you look at that roster, there's not much else to guard. Obviously Derozan would be better suited to be a number two option, but he's carrying that team offensively without any other talented players on the roster

    Did they let baseball coaches vote and they thought every team had to have a guy on it? How else does Johnson, who has been average and inconsistent on a mediocre team get in? Did the Russian buy the spot?

    Wow. I thought I was driving the Lance-a-lot bandwagon.

    Seriously though, Lance is better than Joe Johnson this year. He's a borderline all-star at this point. But HOF? He has a long way to go for that.

    Granger was pretty legit in his day. 43.6% career FG%.

    I am betting the reason why Johnson got in is because his Nets have gone from the worst record in the East to the 7th seed in just a little over a month and a half. They are 10-2 this month. Most of that without Lopez.

    There has always been a lot of incorrect things. That doesn't mean keep it for the sake of history. You fix it!


    If society worked like "Always been that way mentality" we would be in a sad state.

    I've always thought the coaches AS picks held more merit than the starters. The coaches basically determine the players they feel are the best players that season within each conference.
