Default When is Stern going to stop with this fan voting BS!?

Fan voting is getting out of control, pretty soon what are they are going to do, let fans choose draft picks!?

I think it is making today's stars play nonchalantly, they know they will be voted to the all-star team, and deserving player's being snubbed. Also, almost all of the contests at all-star weekend now having fan voting is a joke.

STOP with the effing fan voting already!

50 cents times 2,000,000 is a easy 2 million. With all the drunk tards in the bars just voting for fucks it's easy cash flow. Plus the sponsor of sprite tops it off

the celebrity game had fan votes, both dunk contests (pro and non pro) and maybe some of the other stuff, can't keep track anymore.

Celebrity game is for fun with mostly amateurs, who cares. Let's face it it's basically a popularity contest and the only thing voted on is the MVP, which means fuck all. The only thing in the actual NBA contests that have fan votes is the dunk contest. Not hard to keep track.

I hate fan voting. NBA all-stars voting is stupid. You can vote every 24 hours, for free... wtf?
It should be fans and coaches/players voting, not only fan voting. Look at the results. Yao Ming - all-star starter LOL. The same with T mac last year, and Allen Iverson. Yao is new Chuck Norris? hes not even playing anymore, but he is still an all-star. A joke.

i agree. whats gotten me even more angry is the fact that theyve now incorporated fan voting into mvp decisions. yes it has a miniscule effect but if the nba's not careful it could turn into having 50 percent effect. this would be terrible imo and if this happens ill stop watching basketball. whos with me?

As much as i dislike fan voting its not going away, all star weekend is a completely fan driven event. I really don't mind the voting on the events i just wish there was no voting on the all star selection becuase people get snubbed because of it.

Look how well judges fared in 1st round of dunk contest. Joke as well.

Just come to the grips with the fact that world around you is morons.

I think the whole Yao Ming deal has really soured the All Star voting. I think it should be fully disclosed votes by the media, players and coaches. That way you are voter held accountable by your viewership. I actually think the dunk comp should either be straight up fan voting or some standard should be put in place. ie deductions per attempt.
