Default CB4 - All Star Starter

I don't think CB4 is going to make the staring lineup.
Here is why:

NBA should change the rule of voting ...

They should make it so only coaches have the power to put in the whole team. Players like Bron and in that case Yi are put in because of popularity votes. Everyine knows that Bosh is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better then Yi, but yet Yi has more of a chance to make it into the all star game. WTH is that???

i don't get where you're thinking that Yi is going to be voted in
Yi isn't going to get that many votes like everyone thinks
last year he got quite a few votes considering he really didn't do much his rookie season
if you factor out the chinese voters, the voters were actually realistic, he finished like top 10 in forwards but no where near the top few forwards
this is not yao ming here, chinese people really only care to vote for yao because he's the 1st good chinese guy and he's a legit allstar
bosh will probably again finish in 3rd behind lebron and KG, yi will finish somewhere in the top 10 again

Lets be honest the voting is a joke always has been always will. Chris Bosh deserves to get voted in but I don't see it happening.

i would love to see the team actually selected by the sportswriters and coaches with the non-starters selected by ballot, but Stern doesn't have the balls to change anything that matters in this league.

It should be something like:

30% - fan votes
30% - NBA coaches/players/sportswriters
40% - based on performance in the current year

Also, selected players should have:
- played at least 80% of games
- all five games before ballot ends.

Who really cares. The most important vote is the ALL NBA at the end of the season. Bosh should be at least a 2nd ALL NBA all star if all goes ok with him and the Raptors. Who really cares about the ALL STAR game its nothing but a cash grab

If the NBA gets to a point where there is 20 Chinese players will they all be in the All-Star Game.

The vote has to be spread 1/3 sports writers, 1/3 coaches, 1/3 fans.

Its an ALL STAR GAME meaning STAR players play.

bosh will not make starters. bench however is good too. i worry yi might win because he's not good enough but chinese. LBJ and garnett should both be above bosh.

Bosh won't make starter. We all know it'll be LBJ and Garnett who are voted in. CB4 will be there though - as a reserve.

The sportswriters and even the players shouldn't get a say.

Coaches and GMs should get a vote, that's it.

where are you getting this idea that chinese fans will just vote all their chinese players in
look at the facts from last year, yi was no where near the top in voting and yao did not get the most votes overall either
sure the china votes are a major impact but its not the whole thing and clearly from last year's votes the chinese on a majority vote realistically

I've always thought that the fans should have no part of All-Star selections, but the game is just a big party so whatever.
