I think Bogut has a better

I think Bogut has a better chance of being an all-star this year than Noah, if Milluakee can get back on track of course

Deron Williams will have a chance to be a starter, no way he isn't an all-star this year. I don't see an all-star team without Williams and Nash, they're arguably top 3 PG this year. I don't think Westbrook has much of a chance

I'd love to see Wall in the ASG

Paul Millsap over Deron

Paul Millsap over Deron Williams??? Other than that pretty good list. I like the prediction of Wall being an all-star. That would make him the first rookie all-star since Yao Ming in 2003.

@magmo68 Yeah I know Yao had

@magmo68 Yeah I know Yao had lots of votes.... Tim Duncan was the last before him in 1998....

@llperez, you don't think Wall will get consideration at all?

theres a number of guys on

theres a number of guys on both sides that i didnt list that will get some consideration. But i think wall is gonna shoot a low percentage, turn the ball over quite a bit, teams will load up on him a little more after his breakout game the other day, arenas will steal some shots, and the wizards will struggle as a team. I think his teammate arenas will have more of a chance then him.

Forgive me for asking but can

Forgive me for asking but can Wall of Griffin even make the the all-star game? I though rookies couldn't.

My predictions (starters in bold)

WEST

G Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Tyreke Evans, Monta Ellis

F Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Rudy Gay, Luis Scola, Tim Duncan

C Yao Ming, Pau Gasol, Al Jefferson (replacement for Yao Ming when he is advised not to play in the game in order to rest his injury)

EAST

G Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Rajon Rondo, Joe Johnson

F Lebron James, Amare Stoudemire, Danny Granger, Al Horford, Carlos Boozer

C Dwight Howard, Brook Lopez

Always thought millsap would take booz spot

Always thought Millsap would be booz replacement. thats part of the reason I didnt like the big al trade. The paper boy is this teams best pick and roll player. Their best rebounder. Their hardest worker. And all around could have a legit shot at the all star game. I mean if he averages 20 and 10 watch out. I really hope once okur gets back okur comes of the bench cause millsap is the man.

Also can I get some love for Hibbert!?!? If the pacers are fighting for the 8 seed in the east which isnt out of reach why wouldn't you consider this guy. He is the best big passer in the game today. I could actually see him averaging 4-5 assist a game during the rest of the season. 9-10 rebounds. 16-19 points. 2-3 blocks. Those are all star numbers. So what i got to say is Hibbert and Millsap are my two wild cards for the All Star team this year

Hibbert is a great wild card

Hibbert is a great wild card choice as an all-star but the East actually has a high number of players that should challenge for the center position. It won't be easy even with 18 PPG, 9 RPG and 2 BPG. Dwight is practically a lock. After him Bogut, Lopez, Noah, Horford and STAT (I know he's more of a PF but he was a C in the all-star game last year) will battle it out along with Hibbert.

Boozer

I don't think Boozer will have enough PT with the bulls to find his rythmn by the ASG. Besides, I think Blake Griffin is already a better player than Booz.

As long as Monta & Josh Smith

As long as Monta & Josh Smith don't get robbed again, I'm good.

No way D-Will doesn't make it...and Rudy Gay will probably get more love than Millsap. Very good list overall.
