Default My allstar votes will make you angry

I'm not going to vote for the best players; just the ones I want to see the most. It's an exhibition game, and one of the most fun weekends of my year.

Gilbert Arenas and Shaq have been horrible this year, but they are funny and if voted in, will come up with some anticts to justify their selection.

If you don't vote Shaq in, Dwight Howard will get the start, and somebody horrible like Curry or Bogut will be the reserve. If you do vote Shaq in, he will play 15 minutes and tell lots of jokes, and Howard will still be the reserve.

I will write in a vote for Yi Jian Lian because it's funny to hear complaints about him.

My other guard vote is Jason Kidd, because he's #1, and because he will make everyone else fun to watch. For forwards... I guess it doesn't matter who I vote for because Lebron and KG already won that.

Howard to start and Bosh should qualify as the C reserve :)

If they put dirk as a C one time to fit him in the West, they won't let Fatty Eddy get a reserve C slot

Default Re: My allstar votes will make you angry

If I ever bother to vote for the ASG, I won't vote for Shaq or Arenas barring a major turnaround. It's not just that I don't think they're the best at their positions (although that's a part of it), but I also don't want to watch them. Not the way that they're presently playing. There are few things less entertaining than watching a chucker play when he's off, and one of them just might be a big, slow center that can't jump. Dwight Howard and Ray Allen would make for a much better game in their spots. And there are more exciting, athletic forwards and centers that could/should take O'Neal's potential reserve spot.

Fan voting isn't stupid. It almost always provides 3 or 4 of the best players, plus 1 or 2 guys the fans want to see. On a 12 man roster, you've got 10 guys who are the best of the best, and 2 fan favorites. The game is fun.

Sorry, should have explained my view better.

Fan voting being the only deciding factor in determining starters is stupid. The fans voicing who they want to see is fine as a concept.
