should tmac turn down the all-star spot if voted in?

I know as fans we probably all agree mcgrady does not deserve to be in the all-star game and we would like to see someone more deserving go. But from tmac's perspective, do you think he should turn it down if he is healthy and ready to play?

On one side, i think it would be respectful for him to willingly turn it down and give it to someone more deserving. On the other side, he is a guy trying to prove he is still an elite nba player and if his fans vote for him, then he should be hungry to go there and put on a show and prove doubters wrong. What do you guys think?

He's already said that it's

He's already said that it's because of his China fans that he's getting votes and that he wouldn't accept it if voted in. With that said, he'd be doing the right thing by not accepting.

I think he already said that he is going to turn it down. I think I read it on nba.com about 2 weeks ago.

isnt purpose of ALL-STAR

isnt purpose of ALL-STAR starters for the fans to get what they want to see??? Coaches pick the benches?? With that said, T-MAC should DEFINITELY 100 % play to give the fans what they are asking for... Chinese or not they have the right to vote......It is not Tmacs fault he is not playing... why penalize himself (and not give the voting fans what they want)....... my 2 cents!

couldn't we ask the same

couldn't we ask the same question about Allen Iverson? Sure he's been playing decent but is he an all star?

neither is a allstar this

neither is a allstar this year. there have been other years where peopel made the allstar game because of how poular they were. magic johnson is one that comes to mind. i dont even think he played a game that year. jordan is yet another who started when he shouldnt of because of who he is. reguardless of the resons why these guys still started when they shouldnt have so i think its only fair that if you are voted in as a starter you should start
