I don't vote for any non-Knicks.

Also, they're not going to publicize the draft. Boring.

East

Kyrie
DeRozan
LeBron
Giannis
Drummond

Oladipo
Beal
KP
Horford
Embiid
Love
Simmons

Feels wrong leaving John Wall out. Kyrie, DeRozan, Beal and Oladipo have all had better seasons at the guard spots. So that left him to battle it out for the 2 wildcard spots, and I chose Love and Simmons. Plus hes missed 11 games so far, so that doesnt help. Things may change by next month though, but as of now those are my East all-stars.

West

Steph
Harden
KD
AD
Cousins

Westbrook
CP3
Jokic
LMA
Towns
Lillard
Butler

Wanted to find a spot for Draymond. Maybe replace him over Towns? Idk. I just didnt think it was right to put in 3 Warriors while other players were also having fine seasons on other teams. Kawhi shouldnt get in since he missed too much time due to injury. It'll be interesting if Paul George can sneak his way in, it'll be tough though.

But yea those are my all-star rosters so far.

I like Kanter. But why is he in his feelings over NBA All-Star votes? Get the Knicks back on track, and stop worrying about a glorified pick up game

If he believes he should be ahead of anyone ahead of him on that list, he’s delusional.

If this doesn't show you how un-important bigs are nowadays, idk what does. New Orleans has the PF and C in a stacked conference. Wings and Guards are so much more valuable. They should just make the All-Star Game require 1 forward/center to start.

Maybe he meant it in a different way - that many people didn't think that he's a starter and now he's in the Top 10 in the All Star voting?

At least that's exactly how I reacted when I first saw the post.

Kristaps Porzingis is trending pretty high on Latvian twitter during the last few days. I think the fact that Knicks official twitter account tweeted in Latvian was noticed here a lot. But mostly all the advertising is going on social media. I've seen mostly on twitter and facebook.

Not much. Last year I think there was a bigger activity because different celebrities asked to vote for him on twitter etc. Haven't seen much of that this year to be honest. Some media has written an article etc. but certainly the activity is somewhat lesser this season. It should be the other way around after KP played for the national team though.

KP as every year isn't helping himself.

If he would've started the season in a slump, and than had that amazing 30 point game stretch now, he would be easy in the top 3.

But people are just let down seeing how he looks now, after that hot start.

KP could be leading the league in scoring, rebounding, assists, and blocks...and fickle Knick fans WILL find a problem with his game. That's how it's going to go until the Knicks can field a winning team. That's the key, TEAM.

Despite a shaky knee, elbow which will require surgery, and untimely injuries to Tim Hardaway Jr, Melo trade for a bag of balls...KP has improved his scoring, blocks, 3Pt %, Free Throw % and at times, carried the Knicks to 3 games below .500 which is GREAT compared to last season when the Knicks had MORE talent but far LESS chemistry.

That's an All-Star...debatable if he's a starter but even off the bench no less an All-Star.
