Now that I have your attention, my plea is to help get some good returns for our beloved Raps players as post-Bosh we have had nobody even close to making it. As true Raptor fans we need to help out to support our team and we only have til January 20th to do it!
DD is there at lowly #10 and Lowry isn't even on the list for all his great plays!
Even if we can't make it, we need to help our guys get some decent well-deserved recognition. Bump their name up a little bit. Its the least we could do to show our appreciation for them bringing it every night and taking their game to the next level. Believe it or not, good returns can result in more confident players which could result in even better play so there is something you can do to help your team. Instead of just bickering from your couch, you could have a hand in their continued development.
Its quite easy:
1. Simply go to nba.com by clicking on NBA All-Star 2014 Ballot
2. Select your favorite players - it should look something like this:
3. Don't forget your write-in vote
4. Press Enter and enjoy knowing that when your team is playing in the East Coast finals you can pat yourself on the back because you did your part in helping the Raptors achieve victory!

Yea, you only vote in starters. OBV demar wont beat Wade or Irving. The coaches choose who's on the bench. But I guess the votes might influence their decision, who knows... I doubt it though. I think Derozan will get consideration from the coaches if he keeps up the good work. Especially against good teams. You usually get a player from the playoff teams, so it'd be hard to believe if none of our players get any consideration.

I think DD and lowry each have a decent chance of coach selection. Prob not both but one of them. Despite the fact that lowry has been better, I think DD might get the nod.

Im not going to waste my time voteing for them as they'll never make it as starters. DD doesnt deserve it and neither does Lowry. Although they debateably deserve bench roles which are coach decisions. Hence why im not voting. Lowry i feel deserves it way more than DD but they both do. Mostly due to all the injuries in the east though.
