Well

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

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

center

shaq will not be an all star

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.

shaq

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.

I know but then who am I

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.

Dwat4444

you have too many small forwards in the east (rashard, pierce, granger, iguodala) as reserves IMO

you think artest will be an all star?

If rondo doesn't show a lot

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.

Rose

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

dude are you high again

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.

Yeah

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.

DWILL

I want him to get the recognition, You are so right about being snubbed, it fires him up. DWILL explodes the 2nd half.

Dude

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.
