Five Clippers on the ballot for the first time ever!!!

The only real choice is between JJ and Jamal, since we have 3 guards on the ballot and you only get to vote for 2 guards.

I picked Jamal because I think he deserved a spot last year.

Also, Barnes is available as a write-in. Support your Clippers, guys!

And make sure to vote daily!

I've been voting a lot for Crawford and Redick since I know CP3 will make the team anyway. Can you imagine having 5 Clippers on the All Star team.

That's a good point, but I'm still giving mine to CP3... remember how close Lin got to starting last year with all the China votes?

You know you need to set up an account to vote on the website, right?

If you're still having problems, I believe you can vote by text too.

Blake will probably still get more votes than clove this year, and he deserves it

I've been doing the same thing! And I feel a little shameful for the completely biased voting, but I would absolutely love to have Redick sneak in! (I also vote in Dudley every time for added measure).

I understand why they shape out the ballot so each voter has to pick three frontcourt players to two guards, but it's frustrating that we have 2 frontcourt players and 3 guards on the ballot!!! I throw in Anthony Davis for playing like a monster this season each time just to fill it.

Ummm you guys realize that voting only matters for starters right? Therefore, its completely pointless to vote for Redick and Crawford(if they are getting in they are going to be reserves which get voted in by coaches). Not to mention wasn't Lin close to CP3 in terms of votes last season?

Kobe doesn't deserve anything if he doesn't play but obviously he is a starter lock. His popularity is immense.

How does Kobe Bryant lead CP3 in voting by like 100,000+ votes?

All star voting is a popularity contest. It never goes to the person who plays best at a position rather the player who can receive the most votes. I hear Steve Nash got more votes than Damian Lillard, BS right?

I know its a popularity contest but this needs to stop. I feel if you're injured you shouldn't be on the ballot until you play a game, or shouldn't have any votes count for you. Monta Ellis is playing really, really well as are a lot of other guys that deserve a spot right now more than Kobe.

Regardless of who gets votes, CP3 and Blake should both be starting this year. Blake is playing better than he has recently, but Kevin Love is being overlooked as the 5th starter on the team IMO.

Love, Monta Ellis, Aldridge, Westbrook all deserve back up spots. One could make a case for Dragic, DeAndre, Lillard, Cousins and so forth as well.

East will be Hibbert, Wade, George, Lebron and like Bosh starting cause the East is trash haha

Is it still looking good for blake to start? I'm worried that blake haters will fit love in.

No chance Love makes it in. Blake is more popular and plays on a much bigger market. If Love played in LA and Blake played in Minny it might be the other way around.

Blake's an All Star stud. Always has good games and highlights. Nobody wants to see Love taking 3 point shots in an All Star game! lol

Never Seemed to hurt KG, I just think people vote for their Favorite player, I love Kevin Love, I vote for him every year, I don't like Lebron, I don't vote for Lebron, the Big Market thing is just an excuse for small market Teams, It doesn't seem to hurt Durant, that guy's stuck in Oklahoma. Besides Kobe who's built equity, there isn't really a bad choice for the starters, everybody was getting in anyway given their stats and Team records. I would swad Aldridge for Howard though.

Blake is Popular, he Dunks on MF'aaaas, But his Team is Always top 5 in the West, he's always 20/10, people need to except this.

I aw a count somewhere this weekend and BG32 is way behind Love. We need to vote a few times a day ,each of us,to make sure BG gets in.

But I would rather none of our guys are in the ASG. Chances of injury are slim,but they are there.

Not very surprising. Curry is the trendy player this season and CP3 is in the midst of a backlash in popularity. Either way, Paul should still be injured for the ASG and the game will miss his elite passing.

Good for Curry he deserves it IF Paul can't/won't play. I'll trade Paul's participation in the ASG for a deep run in the PO's any day. Hope that happens.

The way the season has gone I can't really say I would be happy with a Warrior taking Paul's spot. Lilard I can handle but I have a whole new level of for GSW players and fans.

From Matt Moore:

1. Hello there, Stephen Curry. Curry moves past Chris Paul into the starting lineup for the All-Star Game which is a testament to his growing star power. It's also enough to make you wonder about Chris Paul's popularity. The guy has commercials everywhere, is regarded as the best point guard in the league, plays for a team in LA, and has a team with more wins.

So why would he fall off? Well, for starters, Curry is more fun to watch right now. Paul has evolved past the lightning and flash guard he was in 2008. He's smarter, wiser, stronger. He makes the right play 90 percent of the time. Curry on the other hand is a turnover machine because he's always looking for a flashy dribble or pass. Throw in the insane shooting, and a fanbase that yields the internet like a gaitling gun, and here you are.

2. Kevin Love's making a run at Blake Griffin. Paul isn't the only Clipper struggling in returns. Love has shortened the gap to just over 17,000 votes. You have to think Griffin's attempted murder of dunk on Kris Humphries will get him a push in the next few days, though. Love is the more deserving candidate, however. He's been the best power forward in the league, and if he's not, it's LaMarcus Aldridge, who is 80,000 behind Love. You have to think those three plus Anthony Davis are splitting votes from each other.

Yuck, Stephen Curry is just not an exciting player unless he's jacking up 3's. I won't be expecting any lobs to Griffin if he starts.

I have a sneaky suspicion that if you traced IP addresses on a lot of the votes for Curry and Love, they'd trace back to Los Angeles. There is a large voter base that is envious right now of the Clipper success. We need to vote.

The Warriors also have a larger fan base than the Clippers sad to say. They really have a die hard fan base.

Also I think the CP3 injury played a role.

Everyone vote for cp3 and blake. The indignity of Chris not being voted a starter is horrible

So much for all those who said "I'm not voting for CP3, because we KNOW he'll start anyway".

Should be ashamed of themselves. F*cking travesty if some shooter beats him out.
