Two teams under .500 have two starters each in the all-star game. I guess the non-winning team stigma only applies to smaller markets.

Being a future HOFer gives you a bit of a boost.

When was the last time a guy averaging almost 30 ppg was left out of the ASG?


World B. Free missed it with 28.8ppg in 78-79. Tiny Archibald with 28.0 in 71-72. Purvis Short with 28.0 and Dominique with 27.4 were left off in 84-85. The most recent omission was probably Carmelo in 05-06 at 26.5. Doesn't happen too often.


Arenas was averaging 28ppg the year Melo got snubbed. Arenas was initially snubbed too, he only got in as an injury replacement.


As far as the empty stats thing goes, it does sort of remind me of the year Stackhouse averaged 30 ppg in Detroit for a 50-loss Pistons team. He made the ASG that year.

Fans have never cared about team record, it's the coaches who care about that stuff.

Yes, he deserves to start.

Dwight on the other hand should be on the pine with TD taking his place.
