Default KG & Caron out for All-Star Game? Could Jose be in?

Well, apparently on NBATV last night they mentioned with some injuries to KG and Caron that they'll likely need to be replaced for the All-Star game. This being said, does anyone think that Jose will be named as a replacement?

As well, Caron Butler reinjured hit hip flexer today and had to leave the game. He had returned after missing 3 straight games but rushed the return and has aggravated the iinjury. Considering that the ASG is about a week away, Butler is likely to miss the game as well.

This means two possible injury replacements for the Eastern team.

Could Jose have a chance?

I hope they select Hedo as the replacement Forward and Jose as the other replacement. However, chances are that KG's teammate, Ray Ray, will take his spot. This leaves Hedo and Jose. Which really Hedo deserves.

Hedo will get named for sure.
Jose deserves it soooo much more than Ray Allen though.
hopefully they'll add jose.

Well, both players are forwards, so we'll see. I'm sure everyone wanted to see "the big 3" there, so this is their oppoutunity to fix it and have Allen in. The only thing that Allen does better than Calderon is - is score. Jose beats him across the board in pretty much everything else.

wow. there's hope in the Calderon camp afterall....

We'll see what happens, but i too am inclined to think that a "big name" so to speak will get the call. But with the amount of press that Jose has been getting you just never know.

The good thing is that at least the fans aren't voting for this one - so the name thing may not play that big a factor.

Just out of curiosity, is it still up to the "coaches" in general, or is this one person's call?

I would guess either they go to the next name on the list of coaches votes, or the head coach(Rivers) chooses? Just guessing. Good luck Jose..would be cool to have another Rap to cheer for.

He wins more too.

No way Jose gets in. Allen will replace his teammate.

Yep - Stern gets the call. If he chooses Ray over Jose, I say it's definitely time for him to go. But that is a pretty dry AS team without Garnett, so maybe he should go anyway, for letting the league get so pathetic that an AS team ends up having a bunch of no-names on it. Just call them the Lebrons, and be done with it.

Just to recap - fire Stern.

I nominate LX as Stern's replacement.

I don't get why you guys want Jose in so badly!
Do you guys want him to get paid 10-12 million
which would mean where spending 20 mill on 2 point guards!!!!!
Keep him of the all-star team
and give him the contract ford got
so 16 mill for our PGS, still not great, but much more fair.

The other thing to consider about this news, is that it means that Bosh will get another start in the AS game.

And the first thing I do as Stern's replacement - bring back slow motion replays!

Kuz... do you reallly think a team will suddenly pay jose more money just because he was selected as an injury reserve for an all star game? Like that's an automatic $4 million per year or something.

No.

Teams will offer Jose the money in the offseason based on how dude plays the games that matter. simple as that. With the amount of scouting teams do, they already know what Jose can offer. It's not like just because he was named to the all star team people will think he is better / more deserving of more money.

Jose will get what he will get. I really don't think an all star appearance will decide how much money.

I just want Jose to make it because i am a fan of his. and the raptors. It's nice recognition for a player and like Jose said, "It would be a dream." I hope he gets to realize it.

David Stern decides who gets to go as a replacement... nobody else... not the fans and not the caches just Stern himself... he might get Jose & Hedo in just to cover as much of the globe as he can...

true - but weak GMs (not necessarily weak in skill, but with weak support) might use this as an argument to their stupid owners: look, the guy's an all-star, it's worth spending xx millions on him etc. But in the end I don't think it matters, I just read that only two teams will have significant cap-room, and they wouldn't target jose for sure. Anything in the 10 million range would be matched by the raptors, so unless somebody really want to screw us (why?), there won't be any offers to Jose, regardless of whether he gets to play or not.

I'd like him to be selected because:

a. it's nice when you get rewarded for your work, especially for un underdog
b. all-star status = more calls from the referees and more love for the Raptors on us media

hmmm 40 from 3, 50 form floor and 90 from FT + best to/ass ratio in league = all star to me!!

Cant say enough about Jose, classy guy (i got opportunity to meet him once), great player, team guy and absolutely LOVES toronto's multiculturism and unlike many american players WANTS to play here.

Stern, be smart, increase your international flavor and add Jose

Guys as much as we would like to see Jose go to the all star game it just won't happen even though he deserves it. KG 'S replacement is yours truly Rashseed Wallace.

Rasheed is the true enigma of the league, theres basically no1 with his complete skill set that can do all the different things he can do at that high a level, when he wants to be, he is the most complete player in the world IMO
