I agree

Just a few changes....

Al Jefferson instead of Richard Jefferson. (RJ will become more of a role-player, AJ keeps getting better)

Manu Ginobli instead of Deron Williams. (None of these d*ckhead coaches like D-Will.)

Carlos Boozer instead of Pau Gasol. (Yeah I'm crazy. But Booze is 22/12 player if healthy.)

Hedo instead of Vince Carter. (Just a hunch.)

Danny Granger

I think Danny Granger should be on the East squad...

Definatly agree

Danny Granger has the potential to be the other starting forward for the east. If they are in Play-Off i say he is most certainly going to start for the East. I don't think Rondo will be starting guard maybe D-rose, Devin Harris or Arenas. I also think Iguodala will get there ahead of VC or Johnson.

richard jefferson?

jeffersons gonna average: 14.5 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 3.2 apg

or something along those lines-not good enough to be an all-star by any means

Well,

D-rose can't be an all-star this year because he has to be in the rookie-sophmore game so he can't be in the all-star game

Rj???

R.j come on, in milwaukee he couldn't average at least more than 25 ppg because there was NO Bogut and redd so r.j sould've scored a lot more than 14

how bout il mago and aldridge

i think bargs will have a breakout season this year. last year he did it consistently (not just flashes). Aldridge is up and coming. I see bargs averaging 19 and 7 next year and aldridge at 20 and 8.5. enough for all star consideration.

Nice picks

I too think RJ being an All-star seems a little unlikely, but you made some nice selections. I think butidonthavemoneys changes make it pretty damn money, though I do think it will be D-Will's year. The only reason he did not make it last year was due to his being injured. I believe coaches love Deron Williams, he just hasn't made it due to techniclaities. I like your pick of Hedo making it, though at the same time I believe you are from Toronto :). I reside in Portland, but am from Toronto and am in TO for the next 3 months, and do have an affinity for the Raps. The Turkoglu signing I think gives Hedo a very good chance of making his first AS squad.

why would you say no way ron

why would you say no way ron artest..if the lakers are winning and no team is even close then its very very possible..do you remeber the pistons team when 4 players made the all star team even though some didnt have great numbers..sorry but thats possible...and who said ginobli over dwill?..ginobli good and he could make it but oover dwill wont happen if dwill is healthy...over rj yea because he is better and bathballer15 thank you for stopping me from going crazy after europeanbasketballs statement..lol.....and boozer over gasol..wont happen..considering how good the lakers will be..you have to take into account that its not just stats when picking the reserves for the all star team....the real interesting race to me will be that pg spot in the east..devin harris, jameer nelson ( why isnt anyone mentioning him by the way) d.rose and rondo,arenas ( would punish every pg on this list when healthy)

Danny Granger WILL be on the

Danny Granger WILL be on the East. I promise you... He's been putting in work only meant for a superhero this summer. He has improved his ball handling, but his defense is what's going to have people talking next year.

I agree on Granger and I am

I agree on Granger and I am suprisingly going to mention OJ Mayo. He could put up 22ppg and his assists could go up because they might try him at the point more this year. He is alsoa tenacious defender.

i agree on granger and im guessing you have watched his workouts and not just goign by what he put on twitter or some other web site..lol....knicks i completly forgot about mayo...its known his work ethic is unique and hes gonna be a lil more used to the nba plus defense...but im guessing unless he averages 30 he wont make it because his team will still be losing..similar to durant last year u know

My All-star team

West Starters
Chris Paul
Kobe Bryant
Carmelo Anthony
Dirk Nowitzki
Tim Duncan

Bench
Brandon Roy
Baron Davis (if he's healthy the Clippers will have a big 1st half and will be fun to watch)
Kevin Durant
Pau Gasol
Al Jefferson
Chauncey Billups

East Starters-
Derrick Rose
Dwayne Wade
LeBron James
Chris Bosh
Dwight Howard

Bench
Paul Pierce
David Lee (he deserved it last year), and will continue what he did last season
Kevin Garnett- Popular, but will come back with a vengeance
Danny Granger
Jose Calderon (ppl love Rondo, but Calderon represents a PG. Raptors have a nice team).
Shaq- He's loved; Though I'd like to see Al Horford.
Wilson Chandler- My sleeper pick, he's ready to break out.

Jose over Rondo

Jose over Rondo is not at all crazy. Both of them over Rose most likely would be. Do you honestly believe Rondo will average a triple double for the season? I do not know why people are so crazy about Rondo, he is a good player but Jose and is WAY better offensively. If I had to choose a point for the future or on the defensive end, it is Rondo, but Jose puts up numbers and has been a consideration for the All-Star team the past couple years. I do not see him making it, but I am guessing a lot more people will deserve it more than Rajon, including all three other players on his team better than he is.

Okay.

My reasoning for Calderon over Rondo is this. The past 2-3 weeks Rondo has been under fire, and could possibly traded, idc where Rondo gets traded to he's going to struggle and won't be an all-star. Calderon has Bosh, Hedo, Andrea, and I hope they resign Anthony Parker with a starting lineup like that I could totally see Calderon averaging a double-double.

I am a diehard Knicks fan and I just put Lee and Chandler there cause I want to see it happen. If the Knciks are 500 at the All-Star Break we'll see David Lee on the team. Chandler, I am being idealistic, I knew I would get heat for that. Let me get that one back and give me Rashard Lewis, Joe Johnson won't put up the #'s cause of Jamal Crawford. It's either Rashard or Vince, but I'd like to see Rashard Lewis make it.

Calderon

I like euro players,but that's just flat out crazy, Calderon peaked 07-08 and he wasn't an all star then,Rondo and Calderon are going in different directions

Calderon

is only what...27? Around that? How was that his peak? Dude has talent, just won't need to score the ball alot with Hedo and Bosh and the Rookie Derozen.

rondos going no wehere first

rondos going no wehere first of all second if he was he would still be good..with garnett hurt he reallllly stepped his game up ..even when allen was playing bad...u dont average a triple double for a series and think that he couldnt play well for another team....joe johnson should put up the same numbers because now he wont get doubled as much..i rmeeber having this convo with peopel saying kobe wont put up the same number once gasol got there or wont be as good or gasol wont put up near the same numbers because he has kobe.what peopel dont factor in is no its more one on one against these players which gives them more opportunity to score more...and gives youre team a better chance to win..so even if joes numbers go down his team should win more which makes him more likely to be a all star..losing teams tend to not get all stars unless the numbers are like 30-15 or something...knicks will be at the bottom of the basement with there current line up so i wouldnt be expecting any allstars commign out of there

Are you guys telling me

that if Toronto is a top 4 team, Calderon is averaging 10pts and 10asts a game he won't be an all-star?? I think so. Also, Rondo really got to showcase himself b/c KG was out, if KG was healthy Rondo's series would have been a lot different, I don't see Rondo averaging more than 7 dimes a game. I see his line being like 16 and 7 that's a notch below a Stephon Marbury in his prime. Anything is possible really.

lol..10 dimes...you do realize hedo isnt the catch a shot type..he catches and creates..you dont get a assist when a player does that....jumping the gun there..rondos better point blank..but at least YOU believe jose will get picked over rondo..thats all that matters

Rondo

can't average 16 Points a Game.
If Wallace or Hill is brought in that's auto points from them. Throw in the Big 3 and a resigned Davis with Perkins as well...You basically are saying this team scores well over 100 Points Per Game if Rondo averages 16...unless one of the big 3 shows a real decline.

True True

Point is, if Toronto is good, as usual Calderon will be underrated for their success and the voters will look straight to the turn around they had if they become good and say Hedo is the reason and of course Bosh has to get his...so unless Calderon puts up spectacular numbers he'll just be overlooked. Sad Truth...

we'll see

Only Time will tell. The all-star game is a popularity contest, so I don't see Jose Calderon making it b/c not many ppl know him except real NBA Fans, but he's got a good game.

throwing this out there

If say Steve Nash goes to the Knicks since he wants to be reunited with D'antoni, and he isn't happy with what is going on in Phoenix. Can we see something like that where a guy like Rondo Or Calderon gets slighted due to some1 in the western conf going to the east.

Stan Van Gundy

he'll coach the East most likely. I don't see him taking Rondo, or Calderon. I see him taking Jameer since he couldn't play in the last ASG b/c he was hurt.

I say

overlooked because he will be overlooked on his own team much less the whole league.
You telling me if Toronto comes out looking good people will say it's all on Calderon or the new guy Hedo has turned that team back into contenders? C'mon, he'll get no love. Just my opinion.
