If there was any other guard in the East who was popular enough to get close to Iverson in votes, then the NBA would have manipulated it so that Iverson didn't start.

Just like the NBA did with McGrady and Nash. Because you KNOW that TMac won that vote regardless of what is reported lol.

But Iverson was ahead by 200,000 votes on Vince Carter, Ray Allen, Derrick Rose, Rondo, Joe Johnson, etc. NBA couldn't manipulate the vote.

It's all good. Allen Iverson will bow out and Joe Johnson will start. Mark my words.

Iverson respects the honor and knows that he doesn't deserve it.

I would have taken Allen, Rose, or Johnson over AI.

It's just sad..because I honestly root hard for the East every year...and we get this bum.
The last time I cared about a dunk contest was when J-rich won.. Haven't cared since.. And 9erAus is right, if Lebron were to be in the dunk contest, he'd automatically win with lame dunks.. Just watch ESPN highlights and you'll notice his dunks are always top 3 (which i have no clue why)..
With McGrady out Deron better be named a reserve.

Guessing...

Paul-Williams-Roy-Durant-Dirk-Kaman, then you've got one spot for Gasol-Randolph-Ellis-Evans and I'd bet Gasol gets it.

I hope you're right and I'll be pulling for Ellis or Evans instead of Gasol and Randolph although I think Gasol will most likely get it too.

Yeah, I dunno. Gasol has missed a lot of games. I don't think he'll get the nod this year.

Gasol is more deserving than Kaman i think. Theyve both missed games and they can pretend like Gasol is a center like they do with Duncan amd Amare whenever convenient.

Lebron is just a power dunker . People view him as the next great dunker like Jordan Dominique Wilkins, Vince Carter, and etc. but he doesn't have any creativity on his dunk. He can jump I will give him that. Lebron knows that he doesn't have the creativity for the dunk contest that is the reason why he never enters which is pretty smart of him.

You're opinion of AI has always been over-inflated.
