NBA All-Star team

Here's the roster for the NBA "popularity contet" called the All-Star game. I still can't believe Iverson made it with the year he's having but i guess he is one of the most popular players in the game.
Iverson to start All-Star Game; Nash passes McGrady in voting - Ball Don't Lie - NBA Blog - Yahoo! Sports

Re: NBA All-Star team

Fan voting in all-star games should be stopped. I know the theory is that "well it is the players the fans want to see" but that is crap. It is the players from the teams that do the best job getting their fans to vote. At least get it off the internet where it is totally a sham.

So does the NBA decide this completely by fan vote? If so that's just horrible.

Re: NBA All-Star team

^ I believe the starts are and the coaches choose the bench. It ha always been a joke.

All Star games in generally are stupid. I get the point it is the best against the best problem is the best never bring their best effort so the games are stupid in all leagues.

Re: NBA All-Star team

I know it would never happen but they should just take fan voting completely out of the equation.

that's exactly what I was thinking because this is ridiculous. Steve Nash is having the best year any PG his age has ever had and he barely beat out a guy who had only played 45 min!! I'm a big Iverson fan but there's no way he deserves to be there
