Tell me your all-star starters!

Who are your all-star starters at this point in the season? I don't want to hear who ESPN.com or NBA.com thinks they should be lol. I want to hear who YOU think the all-star starters should be based on your guidelines. Here are mine.

East

C - Dwight Howard: Not having as great as a season as last season, but he's still leading the NBA in rebounds and blocks, and Orlando is one of the best teams in the East.

PF - Chris Bosh: Kevin Garnett is the fan favorite, but Chris Bosh has played better this season. Age/injury has caught up with Garnett and Bosh has been a beast. Toronto is starting to pick up some steam. They're right on the Heat's heels for the 5th best record in the East.

SF - LeBron James: Obvious. LeBron is putting up another amazing season and the Cavs have quietly climbed to the top spot in the East and are the 2nd best team in the NBA.

SG - Dwayne Wade: He isn't having the kind of season he had last season, but he's still putting up amazing all around numbers. I want everybody to know that I SERIOUSLY considered Joe Johnson here. Johnson is averaging 20, 5 and 5 and the Hawks are an elite team in the East. This wasn't as easy as a choice for me as you may think.

PG - Rajon Rondo: I'm very critical of his shooting, especially his free-throws... But this kid can ball. It's arguable that he's the most valuable player on the Celtics right now. He's the best point guard in the East... Period.

West

C - Amare Stoudemire: The center spot in the West is wide open this season with Yao Ming out. Bynum was the leader at the beginning of the season, but faded when Pau Gasol returned. Chris Kaman has player very well and is having a career year, but the Clippers are a below .500 team. I went with Stoudemire because he's beginning to play like the man child of old and Phoenix is the 3rd best team in the West.

PF - Tim Duncan: He started slow, but has really picked up his play. A lot of people said he was done for at the start of the season and doubted if he could still be a 20 point, 10 rebound and 2 block player. You Well look up... That's exactly what he's doing lol. He's also averaging 3 assists. What's impressive is he's doing it in less than 32 minutes per game. The Spurs have quietly climbed to the 4th best record in the West. I actually had Dirk Nowitzki here at first... He's having a great season and the Mavs currently have the 2nd best record in the West, but my gut told me to go with Duncan.

SF - Carmelo Anthony: He's been injured as of late, but this man has been a beast this season. He deserves to start this season. He's been a scoring machine.

SG - Kobe Bryant: Obvious. In my opinion, he's the front runner for MVP. What hasn't he done? Huge numbers, game winning shots and the Lakers are the best team in the NBA.

PG - Steve Nash: This veteran's demise was greatly exaggerated. People on here said that he was no longer and elite point guard before the season started and that he'd dropped out of the top five. WRONG. Phoenix is the 2nd or 3rd best team in the West right now and Nash is having a MVP caliber season.

i wasn't even gonna go with

i wasn't even gonna go with the boozer comparison because as you know I'm not a big booz fan and it wouldn't upset me if landry made over it him. BUt to make the team, that means he has to beat out guys like amare, or Pau (assuming he gets healthy) or ZRandolph, and I can't put landry ahead of any of those guys. Boozer would be just ahead of landry in my books too, but not by a whole lot.

As for Brook, yeah, I'm one guy on here who talks abot people putting too much emphasis into a teams record. A teams record matters, but when a guy is doing his job and you know he would be doing that same thing on just about any other team, then they should make the all-star team. Brook has been the second best center in the east and if David Lee is gona make it, then why not brook just because his team sucks. I also thought AL Jefferson got robbed last season. I would put him over shaq, amare and maybe even pau the way he was killing it.
