For those who are oblivious, the All-Star ballot has been up on nba.com for some time now. I have voted on and off, but after seeing the second returns(here: http://www.nba.com/2010/news/12/30/allstar-ballot-results-2/index.html), I have vowed to submit daily. Hopefully I will use nearly the same people every time, but I am a realist, so some of my ballots could change. Regardless, here are the ones I put in today.
Who did you pick? What do you think of Yao Ming leading West centers? Shaq in 2nd in the East? Let us know.
Center: Nene (Nuggets) – He has played near-perfect this year, shooting a super high FG%. His numbers could skyrocket with a Carmelo Anthony trade.
Forward: Kevin Love (T-Wolves) – This was a no brainer. He won’t get voted in, but 20 and 15 is a HUGE number. I was tempted to vote for Blake Griffin, but he won’t get in either!
Forward: Kevin Durant (Thunder) – Why vote for Melo, he will be gone by the time the all star break happens…
Shooting Guard: Monta Ellis (Warriors) – This is my second-favorite player in the league. Every time I watch him, he does something amazing. Then he does it again. Then that repeats itself several times throughout the game.
Point Guard: Deron Williams (duh) – If this were 2 weeks ago, Russell Westbrook would be here. Keep that in mind…
West Reactions: Basically I boycotted the lakers.
Center – Dwight Howard (Magic). A no-brainer. He could potentially win DPOY, MVP, and MIP.
Forward – Amar’e Stoudemire (Knicks) – He has played extremely well, and advanced statistics show he is shooting better than in Phoenix, playing more efficiently, and even helping them defensively (what??).
Forward – LeBron James (Heat) – Don’t hate the great.
Guard – Dwyane Wade (Heat) – One of my favorite players. Back to back 40+ point games. Probably one of the most improved players if one looks at how they were coming into the league to today.
Guard – Raymond Felton (Knicks) – Gotta give it up for his play, he has proved Stoudemire doesn’t need Nash.
East Reaction: The Knicks are making noise, and could potentially double their record with a trade near the deadline, so I gave their top players props.
