Dwight and Shaq are pretty much guaranteed to be in the all-star game, since they are in the same conference it eliminates any hope for any other player to go.

12 votes for yes? :facepalm:

If this poll was up two weeks ago it would have been laughed at.

Why is Shaq guaranteed?

How many C's get voted in? My guess is Dwight would be leading in votes....

The question is if he continues to play at this pace. If that's so, then he deserves to make the all-star team. I think he's averaging around 25 points in his last few games.

It's not just about how many points he scores, it's also about how points he prevents. You look at his +/- and he's just awful:

http://www.82games.com/1011/10TOR13.HTM]Andrea Bargnani of the Toronto Raptors, NBA player stats

He's also the worst rebounding 7'0"'er in the game.

If he were on a good team like DAL or SA, he and his one-dimensional game would be coming off the bench due to his massive defensive flaws. No contender would have him as a starter. ORL? BOS? UT? LAL? NO? Nope. He's the Juan Calderon of big men.

^ +/- means fuck all, especially on a struggling team. How many Raptors have a good +/-? It's a product of the team as a whole so to individually look at that stat at all is silly.

I do agree about his rebounding, it's brutal.

bargs is listed as a C so dwight will get the vote to start by fans
which then leaves him to get in by the coaches' votes, the coach usually votes maybe 1 more C and then probably a couple PFs that can play the C if need be or even a PF that plays limited C and maybe SF
add in the fact that they usually like to reward players on winning teams, that we are not!

Andrea won't make it because Dwight Howard, Al Horford, Joakim Noah, Brook Lopez and Andrew Bogut are ahead of him in that order.

He'd have to average Dirk-ish numbers to make the all-star team in the Eastern conference. Something like 22/7/2 3s and 2 blocks a game on .380 from 3, .450 from the field and .850 from the line.

Won't get in.
He will need to be in the top 10 scorers in the league to be considered. Plus he plays in Canada
Too many Centers considered better ....

Why the hell should he? Horrid defender and rebounder, he'll NEVER be an all-star as his current pace.

I bet the league would get more hatemail than allstar votes for Bargnani... it's ridiculous. Big dumb oaf? I just don't get why that would even be necessary.
