Default Better chance of second all-star next year?

If we end up hanging around the top 3 in the conference... there's a good chance they'd give us 2 in the ASG, that's generally how they seem to do it now

Would Jose or JO be more likely? Jose's numbers may be more impressive, but away from Dwight there's NO other centers in the East, so JO may have an advantage there.

Screw that .... our big three are taking the league by storm next season. Jose, JO and CB4 will all be at the all-star weekend.

Unlikely yes, but I'm trying to turn over a new leaf and be more optimistic for next season.

I think that there is bigger chance for Raps not to have any players in the All Star game then to have 2 or more...

I don't see how we could NOT have at least 2 all-stars next season, but most likely none will be a starter. Howard and Garnett are locks in the front court and Calderon has no chance of making it via the popular vote.

As backups, Bosh and O'Neal almost made it together last year, when O'Neal was playing on a shitty team, so unless one of them misses a long time with injuries, they should be in.

I give Calderon about 50% chances because arenas is back, Ford might be in the discussion, Billups is still going strong and even Bibby and Harris might have a shot.

CB4 is pretty much a lock again and if he's healthy i would think JO will have an allstar type year. At the same time if Jose plays the first half like he did last season he could be there as well.

I think when it comes to PG it's Calderon/Arenas,as for Billups it's almost a given he'll be traded with a strong probability to the west (Nuggets IMO). He has a way better chance than Bibby,Harris! With Billups still in the East he's probably the 2nd or third best guard in the east now.If Billups is traded out of the east then it's Calderon/Arenas.

if healthy JO will guaranteed make it because there are no good centres except D12. The only other centers are like bogut who isnt that great.

Unless Jose has a great year and we stick around top 3 though, because as a backup, he's voted by coaches. And arenas is not very popular with them ...

But seriously, I think we may be lucky to have at least 2 guys on the All-Star team.

I think this one season the Pistons starters were all on the allstar team at the same time.

Honestly, it was such a shame Jose was off last year, and this aint homer kool aid, it was US media that said this stuff, that he's a lock this year if he keeps it up.

Guy is the 4-5 best PG in ball last year, I think it's hilarious that he's being over looked so much in discussions. So ya ,we can have 2, but who is the other????? Bosh??

Hmm.

Maybe...

Oddly enough, at least in the US media and from what I read on messageboards, Jose is the most popular Raptor as far as respect goes behind Bosh and Carter I have yet to read about. He may get some votes
