Is Gerald Wallace an All-Star?

16.1 points, 12.3 rebounds (leading the NBA from the SF position) and 1.6 steals. The Bobcats are 9-11, which is good for 7th in the East as of today. Is he an All-Star reserve if the team keeps winning and he keeps putting up these numbers?

wallace

as of right now I think he will be selected as an allstar. But with the arrival of stephen jackson his stats will slide a little bit.

Not necesarily... If

Not necesarily... If anything, Jackson has helped Wallace. He no longer has to be the team's top offensive option. He plays well off of Jackson on offensive, plus he can focus on doing all the dirty work like rebounding and playing D.

I think he's on the outside

I think he's on the outside looking in. I think Josh Smith should have the SF spot as a backup. Smith has been more impressive than Wallace from what I've seen this year. But Wallace has been a good player for Charlotte this year..

Good question

Personal opinion? Yes, easily. But the NBA All-Star game isn't the top players from each conference it's more or less a popularity contest for the fan voting aspect and then a prestige thing when the coaches pick...I hope he makes it though. If he does it will be because of his hustle and the rebounds hes pulling down for his position. I think people are beginning to take notice

ya

I should have clarified, his offensive touches will decrease, every other part of his game should stay the same or increase.

Wallace is one of those

Wallace is one of those players who won't really need a lot of offensive touches to score... That's the good thing about him. He's sort of like Shawn Marion. He can give you 15+ points without having too many plays ran for him.

To me he's a better, more

To me he's a better, more efficient young Marion. I think with the year he's having on top of the games he had against James and Anthony he'll sneak in as a reserve. He certainly deserves it.

You all have made good

You all have made good points. Here's my assessment........... Steven Jackson will make the all-star if the Bobcats continue winning instead of Wallace.

Dhamp2...the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.

Andy Rautins may be drafted after all....very late in the second round
Bring back the Fab 5
Steve Lavin please coach again
