He plays on a s**t team and the others are all on playoff contenders. That does factor in. I am not saying he isnt having an excellent year but I just cannot leave Dirk or Duncan off the team.

The all star team shoulnt be based off how the rest of someones team is playing its about individual success.. And Demarcus is statistically the best center in the NBA and it isnt even close.

if that was the case, my boy Monta Ellis woulda made it a couple times.

But he was never far and away the best SG in the league. No center comes close to what Demarcus is doing
Kobe starts the all-star game?

Remember when Yao Ming "started" that one year to fan voting?
Speaking of all-stars. Kurt Thomas is the best player of all-time to never be an all-star.

I hate fan voting all stars People just vote by name recognition.

Lillard has a pretty good case to be an all-star IMO

Marcus Camby
Orlando Woolridge
Jason Richardson
Monta Ellis

Curry will make it this year so he doesnt count.

Well, I guess we'll see who much the coaches weigh reputation and attiude versus numbers and performance. Based on number and perfromance he is a no brainer.
It's going to be awfully difficult for Cousins to make the All-star game. He deserves it. But, I don't think he'll make it.

I think I have a bigger issue with the East squad than I do the West.

Guys who I would put on..........
Andre Drummond - leads East in double-doubles and rebounding
Arron Affalo

Guys I would leave off:
Deron Williams
Brook Lopez

I really thought of putting Drummond and Affalo on the roster...and they very well could make it. IMO - Brooklyn is starting to look a little better and Vogel/Spols will give them the nod. I'm a huge Drummond fan...hope he makes it.

I think if Rondo returns in early January and plays well - he will make it.

I dont know who you would leave off to put Cousins on the roster.

Even if you take off Dirk off the team...it is very likely Portland, Spurs, or OKC will get the coaching duties. They'll pick - Lilliard, Tony Parker, or Ibaka respectively.
