Who can be first time AllStars next season?

*next* season being, the next one coming not necessarily 2011-2012.

I can think of these guys who *might* be the first timers playing in AllStar game:

- DeMar Derozan

- John Wall

- LaMarcus Aldridge

- Greg Monroe

- Paul George

Paul George

LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Josh Smith(3,4) and Andre Iguodala(2,3) all ahead of him for some time to come.

I'm going with the homer pick

I'm going with the homer pick of DeMar DeRozan, or maybe even Bargnani.

In the east unless someone

In the east unless someone get injured most of the all-star spots are set for the next while I think all new all-stars will be in the West

nzers, Josh Smith is not some

nzers,

Josh Smith is not some guaranteed All Star for years to come. The guy was 15 and 8 last year. He's ok, but Moses Malone he aint. If anyone is going to hold down a big man spot in the East for awhile, it's Amare Stoudemire.

Some young bigs in the East that I could see making their first All Star appearance next year are Brook Lopez or JaVale McGee (if Dwight Howard goes to the West and a C spot opens up on the All-Star roster). Maybe even Roy Hibbert if he could add another 4-5 points and 2-3 rebounds to his 13 and 12.7 and 7.5 average from last year.

I agree with Andrew1984 in

I agree with Andrew1984 in regards to centers in the East making it in, but I think Andrew Bogut will have a better chance of getting in than JaVale McGee or Roy Hibbert. He averaged 16 and 11 in 09-10 and if he could get back to that level I think that could be enough to get him in.

Yeah, Bogut is still the most

Yeah, Bogut is still the most likely among those players. I was just throwing some other names out there. The question for Bogut is whether or not he can stay healthy. I could see Greg Monroe doing it too.

If Cousins made a descent

If Cousins made a descent improvment he could easily be in the running for the West's center.

Anything can happen with the

Anything can happen with the fan voting.... With Yao retired, hopefully China doesn't as a whole vote for Yi more because that would be pathetic if he made and all-star team.

I'd go with Marc Gasol before DeMarcus Cousins.

John Wall. I don't think Joe

John Wall. I don't think Joe Johnson is a lock at the guard spot in the East. Rose, Dwyane, Deron and Rondo look like they might be, but that still leaves a spot open especially if any one of them falls to an injury.

I'm telling you guys

If Scalabrine gets 2 minutes a game he can put up some serious numbers, like 0.3 pts/game and even 0.2 boards per. All star here he comes. You guys just hate chubby red-headed pasty guys. Stop hatin'!!

I never said that he would be holding down a spot on the allstar team. I said he will be ahead of him, meaning that he will be a better player for a few years. J smoove is only 25yr old. 16.5ppg, 8.5rpg, 3.3apg, 1.6bpg.

Paul George is good but he will have to bet out Danny Granger first.

dark horse

I think a dark horse is Luis Scola, he pretty quietly put up 18 and 8 last year and he is an insanely skilled player already, but with McHale (and his wealth of low post knowledge) as his head coach I seriously think he could be a 20 + ppg scorer. He's older than most 5th year players, but he's improved every year and I don't think he's going to stop that trend next season, he's always a beast in FIBA play and I don't think his potential as NBA player has been reached yet.
