who do you think will start at center in the 2010 all star game for the west?
for the past 6 years, yao has been the starting center for the western all-stars. but now that he's most likely out for the whole season and with shaq moving back to the east, who's your pick to be the starting center for the 2010 all-star game for the western conference?
Should be Tim Duncan but they say he's a PF. If Bynum starts thats just a joke, I'd like to see Nene, Okur or Amare start at Center.
I think it might be Amare
I THINK THE SUNS WILL MOVE AMARE BACK TO CENTER..SO IF HE'S HEALTHY..HE'LL BE STARTING FOR THE WEST...IF ODEN STAYS HEALTHY..HE MIGHT GET A LOOK..BUT THERE ARE SOME OTHER CAPABLE GUYS LIKE NENE, CAMBY, JEFFERSON AND OKAFOR...
i think Jefferson will be the center since he will probably play center next to Love most of the season, Okafor as the backup.
Timmy has played center since The Admiral left, but Pop wants him to go down as the greatest PF ever. We know the real deal - he jumps center at the start of the game, is the tallest and biggest player on his team, plays the other center most of the time, except when strategy dictates that he is the double teamer for foul trouble purposes. The other teams center guards him most of the time, exception for foul trouble. Does anybody really think that Matt Bonner or McDyess is a center - even espn.com has Timmy at center on their depth chart.
That being said the starter can be a big PF so it will be Timmy, Pau or Amare - maybe Big Al or Bynum.
but a healthy Camby (paradox?), Al Jefferson, Okafor, or Oden should make pushes. Remember that the fans vote the center in, so it still could be Yao (how laughable would that be), or Bynum with LA behind him. I personally hope Oden shows All Star flashes. He's been labeled a bust way too soon by some people because of how ridiculously good Durant's looking right now.
Nene, Okafor, Biedrins, Al Jefferson?
Okafor, Beidrins, Jefferson
Ok, I can see Okafor, Beidrins, and Camby getting a look to possibly make the squad, but start? You have got to be kidding me, the only real possibilities at this spot are Gasol, Duncan, or Amare.
In past all-star ballots Duncan, Amare, and Gasol have been listed as Power Forwards
Magikknick is correct, they are listed as power forwards, so other players are gonig to have a chance this year..
There are a lot of guys ahead of him, I think Stodamire will start, but I think Okafor playing with Chris Paul and a playoff caliber team will greatly help his career, he is an upgrade from Chandler who was an 11 and 11 guy in that system. A fresh start with his defensive ability and less of offensive role, he could have a 15, 11 and 2 year and make a push for a backup in the all-star game
Gasol and Stoudamire and Duncan are all PF on the ballot, so unless that changes, they will not be the starting C.
all as possibilities.
IMO, it will be Jefferson that will start.
Biedrins, Okafor, or Nene as the backup .
I think it will be Al Jefferson.
fans vote on that stuff its gonna be Yao
It always used to frustrate the hell out of me when Grant Hill or Penny Hardaway would get voted in as a starter despite playing like 5 games before an all-star break,...kids filling out ballots at McDonalds and the entire country of China will pick their favorite players and players that they know whether they deserve it or not, since Yao won't be playing next season, i don't remember if they pick the #2nd vote getter (which i think will be Greg Oden) or the coaches pick, so if its the #2nd vote getter my money is on Oden and if the coaches vote in i'd put my money on Bynum or Gasol depending on Bynum's injury status and what they list Gasol as on the ballot
Doesn't fan voting only count for part of their selection though? If fan voting was the only thing that counted Yi and Yao would be starters every year.
It was always the starting teams, unless they changed it
yao will be one of the top voted players for the allstar games because of china. Also Yi has a very good chance to be a starting forward for the eastern squad!
Yeah, they always vote for the starters, but will Yao be on the ballot?
But yeah, Yao and Yi are always possible starters because of it .
I can see it now..
Starting Guard for your western conference all stars...
Kobe coming off the bench in place of Yue in the All-Star game!
lol, if only it was yue starting over kobe... kobe is basically worshipped in many asian countries, which is why he never gets shafted like that.
I guess that means CP3 will have to come off the bench..
do you guys know if any NBA player have corny Japanese or Asian TV commercials peddling Pepsi or something?? Im gonna try youtube for some
CHECK THIS OUT!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab5dY9rahzY
I always thought it was dumb for famous people, especially bball players to do international commercials that they dont understand...
You could think your saying"This awesome new productive has been sold in millions of homes"
but you really could of said "Im a damn idiot because i dont understand shyt im saying"
Off Topic, but has anyone seen when Akon got punked? perfect example
its his year. tim duncan is getting old and pop will monitor his minutes becuase he's gonna want duncan and everyone healthy for the playoffs. Al is gonna be a beast all this year. he will still be on the same sorry twolves team but hopefully hi splay will get recognized with all the johnny flynn and ricky rubio hoopla goin on
