Cousins 12th among front court players in all star voting?
All star voting is lame. It's popularity contest and isn't based on your play this year but also past years. That's why fan voting is limited to starters and you expect the coaches will do the right thing and pick the guys who deserve based on this year but that doesn't happen often either. They pick their own dudes. Vogel (not singling him out...all coaches do this)
is already talking about David West and Lance Stevenson as all-star players lol. Last year Spols moved Chris Bosh into starting line-up - even though other players were more deserving.
So, with that in mind - I left Cousins off the all-star team. I highly doubt Brooks or Stotts (Pop is ineligible to coach all-star game)
will pick Cousins over Ibaka or Lilliard. I hope I'm wrong.
