F: Danny Granger
F: Chris Bosh
C: Brook Lopez
G: Devin Harris

F: Kevin Durant
F: Amare Stoudamire
C: Andris Biedrins
F: Carmelo Anthony
G: Russell Westbrook
what does everyone think and who are your predictions?
Bynom over Biedrins.
I like those teams but take out Biedrins and Westbrook and put in Chauncey Billups and Mehmet Okur or Bynum.
highly doubt the nets will be good enough to get two all-stars in, but some good picks, at the end of the day a lot of the all-star reserves are based on winning teams, each year you'll get a guy like danny granger who despite his team having a poor record they get in cause of their great year, I see OKC as an upstart team, but I don't know if they'll be able to get two all-stars in either. Some good picks, I can see Lamarcus Aldridge seein his first appearance in the game, and maybe a guy like Josh Smith sneaking in
are very weak! Nba needs more quality centers biedrens and brook lopez are jokes for the allstar team. I also think bynum in the west and shaq in the east.
could also sneak into center reserve roll if stays happy and produces.
shaq will not be an all star this year i dont think, i think he'll just be a road block in lebron trying to get to the basket.
I concidered Bynum, and there are not too many great NBA Centers right now, and last year Biedrins averaged a double double i think he has the ability to improve on those numbers and possibly sneak in.
I still just dont see brook lopez as the reserve in the east so shaq is the next only logical one, unless you consider al horford a legit center.
My teams...East first
1. Devin Harris
2. Dwayne Wade
3. Lebron James
4. Chris Bosh
5. Dwight Howard
Rashard, Nelson, Pierce, Garnett, Shaq, Arenas, Johnson, Williams, Granger, Iguodala
1. Chris Paul
2. Kobe Bryant
Gasol, Roy, Williams, Stoudamire, Gay, Anthony, Billups, Parker, Artest, Aldridge
is usually in the forward slot on the ballots!
I know but then who am I going to put at center? Bynum? Jefferson didn't even make the team last year so why would he make the starter role this year? Duncan is still a center to me.
you have too many small forwards in the east (rashard, pierce, granger, iguodala) as reserves IMO
you think artest will be an all star?
but the starters are from the fans ballot. So the starting center would have to be one of them.
C Dwight Howard, Shaquille O'Neal,
Pf Chris Bosh, Kevin Garnett, Elton Brand.
Sf Lebron James, Danny Granger.
Sg Dwayne Wade, Joe Johnson,
Pg Devin Harris, Derrick Rose, Mo Williams.
C Al Jefferson, Tim Duncan, Paul Gasol.
Pf Amare Stoudemire, Dirk Nowitzki.
Sf Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant.
Sg Kobe Bryant, Brandon Roy.
Pg Chris Paul, Tony Parker, Deron Williams.
Rdots allstar team would win dwatts allstar team in my opinion.
I think Rondo is going to get in before Jameer Nelson.
is snubbing deron williams again. The coaches wont leave out dwill for the 3rd straight year. dwill as earned a spot even with an average 1st half.
oh i forgot about him.
If rondo doesn't show a lot of improvement on the offensive end then I don't think he's allstar material. Iguodala is more of a SG and Lewis can be PF. Artest will make it if he goes for like 17 a game cuz he'll be on the best team in the league which is a huge bonus. If Orlando and Cleveland get 3 allstars then LA should definetely get 3.
Shaq is getting in there.......gilbert hell no
i think Gilbert could be an All-Star if hes healthy.
Only birdman thinks Rose will be on the allstar team... People are going to be much more likely to vote for Rose than Rondo most likely, espcecially the way Rondo has conducted himself the last few months and the things that Danny Ainge has said about him. To be totally honest, I don't see a better PG in the east than Rose. Kidd is out of his prime. Rondo isn't a likable figure. Devin Harris is good, but better than Rose? I don't think so. Also, I just don't see Arenas being back to full strength enough to be voted as a starter for the All Star game. He isn't really a PG anyway
Deron Williams will never make the all-star team.
PG: Gilbert Arenas, Devin Harris, Rajon Rondo
SG: Dwayne Wade, Joe Johnson
SF: LeBron James, Danny Granger
PF: Kevin Garnett, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer
C: Dwight Howard, Andrew Bogut
PG: Chris Paul, Tony Parker, Steve Nash
SG: Kobe Bryant, Brandon Roy
SF: Dirk Nowitzki, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant
PF: Tim Duncan, Amare Stodemire
C: Al Jefferson, Pau Gasol
Give a good reason why d-will want make it.
everyone talks who is a better pg dwill or cp3 it's usually half and half you thinks the beter of the 2 are. Yoursmoked a little to much to make a statement like deron williams WILL NEVER make a all star team. He will for sure this season bearing another injury of course.
I think Deron Williams is better but he was snubbed the last 3 years. What is going to change this year? He will average 20 and 10? He already has. I guess he would have to average 30 and 15 to be considered for the all-star team.
I really can't see him making the all-star team unless he leaves Utah.
Besides he always plays better after being snubbed. It's like an annual boost for our team.
I want him to get the recognition, You are so right about being snubbed, it fires him up. DWILL explodes the 2nd half.
I want him to get recognition too. He deserves it. Maybe playing on the USA team is enough.
Honestly though, he has averaged around 20 and 10 going into the break the last 3 years. Utah has been a playoff team all 3 of those years and he has put up good %'s. I don't see why the cycle of him not making the team would just break suddenly.
is not going to start ever again stoudemire will start after this next season duncan is out Aldridge in
dont sleep on Blake Griffan he could have a good year.
Williams is not an all-star. The coaches hate him.
i think Williams will be an All-star who would you put ahead of him?
yeah right id take Williams over him anyday.
I don't think it is that big a deal.
Yeah right id even say Williams is the second best Pg in the west.
Williams is a better defender than Nash and scorer.
Williams is a better scorer and defender than Nash.
NBADraft.net is crazy. Let's be responsible! OK?
Assists are important but they arent everything.
Jameer Nelson or Devin Harris?
Derrick Rose or Rajon Rondo?
id take Williams over all 4 of them.
That isn't the answer I expected!
you expected me to say hes worse than one of those pgs?
this might work
It seems like it is just me and you right now Birdman!
I think Bogut will make it over Shaq!
I hope Jefferson can get voted in as a Center...
personnaly i think Jefferson is a pf!
I hope Memo is an All-Star this season!
