Carmelo Anthony named all-star starter. KG over Tyson.

Rondo, Wade, Melo, Lebron, KG.

The elimination of the center position hurt Tyson. KG is still the bigger name.

West has Paul, Kobe, Durant, Dwight, Blake.

So the 20-18 Celtics and the 17-21 Lakers have two all star starters each. Fan voting fail.

I would have had Tyson or Noah over KG for the East and Tim Duncan over Dwight for the west.

I hate the NBA for taking the Center spot out. Very disrespectful to the position to just say "vote for any big man"

To be fair the back court is just backcourt, so naturally the froncourt would be the same format.

besides there aren't that many centers anyway, and alot of forwards are playing the center potion now.

Wouldn't KG have still been voted in, or has he been playing PF this season?

Anyways, Tyson should have been voted in in combination with our higher record.

Tyson is not an all-star this season, I don't know why that's so hard to understand..
KG/ Noah are more deserving

Surprised people are recognising JR, at least from the TNT crew.
