Default T-Mac in the all-star game

I just don't understand who is voting for him. Don't they realize that he's played like one game for 14 minutes this season?

There's no way David Stern should let him play, let alone START in the all-star game over Steve Nash and the other great guards in the West

Not really Raptors news. But I agree that is pretty fucked up. Stupid popularity contest.

It's really no more stupid then the fact that Iverson is the leading vote getter among SG's in the eastern Conference. And so if voting ended today he and T-Mac would be starters!!

A combined 19GP this season. Now that is fucked up!

Tmac is big in China hence the vote being so lopsided.

All Star games are horrible and ALL NBA are more important.

tmac has been to china with yao a few times. So I suppose why wouldn't the chinese public vote for Yao's best friend as well. Its not like they actually watch the games anyways

T-Mac in the West and Iverson has a starting spot in the East. It's not right. I understand the game is fan driven, but fan's input should be a fraction. 11 of the guys should be chosen by the coaches, players and league, and the 12th man should be chosen by the fans much like in baseball whereby the fans have to choose a final roster spot in each league, and MLB puts forth the names.

Not an all star game, this is a biggest fan game. There are much better players that deserve the spots more than a washed up AI and injury riddled T MAC.

the game has always been about the fans, so they wont do anything too drastic to change that approach. What they should implement, however, is a game limit rule - in which a player must play X amount of games that season in order to be eligible to be voted in.
maybe make the cap 25 games.

If Michael Jordan was on the ballet, he would be a starter.

Remember that year when Shaq was with Miami and was voted a starter even though he played like 5 games? This is not about skills, its about popularity.
