Would've had DeAndre over Faried but overall no complaints. The two most important guys are White and Green, and they're in. Should be incredible.

Has he completely fallen out of the rotation or has he been dealing with an injury for the past month? He looked like a solid scoring threat off the bench at the beginning of the season.

That's a shame, Deandre Jordan has CRAZY hops/athleticism (more fluid than Dwight/McGee IMO), and I bet he could win.

I'm excited to see Bledsoe and Ross though.

completely out of the rotation. not even getting garbage time, which sort of makes me think it's something more than just bad play. i have absolutely no evidence of that, but it makes me wonder.

I agree. DJ was mainly hurt because the all star weekend is in his hometown. I doubt he expected to actually be an all star but to not even be on the ballot? That's messed up. Especially when far lesser players were on the ballot.

I don't like the East vs West idea though, if I understand correctly it means that the finals will be 1 East vs 1 West. With the two favorites in White and Green being in the east that means only 1 could possibly make it to the finals.

Each conference's participants will earn points for their performance in the events throughout the night, with the overall tally determining which conference earns the title of 2013 State Farm All-Star Saturday Night Champion.

Six competitors?!? I pray this is a sign of things to come - a hint of a dunk contest reformation, with the return to normal standards, judges, and rules. Great news so far.
