Post#1 2014 All Star Game Line-up
Thu Jan 2, 2014 11:41 am by KJandHondo35

So I personally can’t stand the All Star balloting as it currently stands because I feel it isn’t a reflection of what players are playing the best basketball for the current season but more a consensus of the most popular players. Knowing everyone here have a good knowledge of the game I was wondering who you all would make your starting 5 and top 2 off the bench for the East and West.
Mine would go:
EAST : WEST
PG: John Wall : Chris Paul
SG: Aaron Afflalo : James Harden
SF: Paul George : Kevin Durant
PF: Lebron James : LeMarcus Aldridge
C: Roy Hibbert : Dwight Howard

Bench:
Kyrie Irving : Russell Westbrook
Carmelo Anthony : DeMarcus Cousins

Honorable Mentions : Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozen, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, Monta Ellis, Evan Turner

I’m interested who you all pick, I had a hard time with this specifically with the West guards but I think when you look at their performances on both offense and Defense these are the guys I would go with.

Like the idea. Yeah the voting sucks terribly.

East ------------ West
Wall ------ Paul
George ---- Harden
James ----- Durant
Millsap ---- Aldridge
Bosh ------ Howard

6th & 7th Men..
Lowry ---- Curry
Anthony -- Love

& Just cause I'm bored at work. I see..
Irving -- Lillard
Wade -- Parker
Afflalo - Bledsoe
Turner -- Griffin
Hibbert -- Dirk
A.Drum or AlJeff? -- A. Davis or D. Cousins?

Ooh.. I left Rondo, Rose, Kobe, Westbrook, Lopez, Horford all off for injury reasons obviously. Westbrook is gonna be out past Feb so I took him out.

Looks about right. Crazy that Arron Afflalo is the best SG in the Eastern conference...

It’s a shame Westbrook is out should have considered that, probably have Love in there as the 6th man in his place. I just can't stand how it seems he actively resists playing defense and would rather just get in rebounding position.

Well the current voting system is interesting. It's front court and back court so if you look at the Leastern Conference the starters are projected to be THREE SF's (James, George, Anthony). That'll be weird. Anyway, my All-Star 7 is below.

East:
Wall/Wade/George/James/Hibbert with Anthony/Millsap/Afflalo/Bosh as my top 4 reserves.

West:
CP3/Curry/Durant/LMA/Howard with Harden/Griffin/Love/Parker as Top 4 bench
