Love, Aldridge, Westbrook, Nash, T. Parker, Dirk and Marc Gasol. Dirk? Really?

Joe Johnson, Hibbert, Igoudala, Bosh, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce make East. Think I'm missing 1 person.

Why Josh Smith got snubbed is beyond me, Rondo also did not make it although he has missed game time.

The boys on TNT picked a few random guys that didn't make it and they are a bit upset that Josh Smith and Kyle Lowry didn't make the team. They feel Dirk did not belong on the team at all.

DeAndre, Al Harrington, Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson, Gallinari, Rondo, Kyle Lowry, Josh Smith, Tyreke Evans, Nene, Pau etc all were guys the 5 normal analysts on TNT all picked ( plus others ) that they figured might get the nod for the ASG. ( Barkley, Shaq, Webber, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson ).

They are giving centers way too much love, Marc Gasol and Roy Hibbert both dont deserve to be on the all star team IMO

Marc Gasol is getting like 15 points, 10 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal and over 2 blocks a game! Hibbert got the nod because the Pacers are playing amazing right now. I believe he's getting 13 points, over 9 boards, nearly 2 assists and like 2 blocks a game. They made Al Horford an All-Star and he put up weaker numbers than both of these players.

Luol Deng being on the team, as well as Dirk is just sad to me. Josh Smith and Kyle Lowry were big time snubs. I'd also make the case for Rudy Gay.

Marc Gasol is putting up good numbers but Id still put Nene or Rudy Gay on that list before him

NBA is smart to have Griffin, Aldridge, and Love all on the western conference team to avoid fan backlash. All 3 of these guys are the top PF's in the west. The only player I really question on the West's reserves is Dirk because he hasn't had that great of a season.

The east's reserves seem logical.

Literally no shooting guards or small fowards for the West.

4 PG's and 4 PF's on a 12-man roster... East win and Howard gets MVP because it's Orlando. Yawn.

The mashup Rook-Soph game will probably be better than the ASG.

i think shaqs team will win the rising stars game. he has the first pick and hes going with BG. then i guarantee he will go with rubio. if he doesnt defend his slam dunk title, we will see a slam dunk show if rubio and BG are on the same team.

Shaq may have pick 1 but that doesn't nec. mean he's going to win the game. Chuck could easily just take Rubio with his first pick, however that'd give Shaq John Wall. Chuck could just fire back with Demarcus Cousins whose no slouch.

yeah but i think barkley was leaning towards irving or wall. so that would leave rubio for shaq. or how about shaq picks bg then barkley picks wall or rubio then shaq picks cousins, shaq will get wall, rubio or irving. that would be unfair cuz shaqs team will be quite deep.

Meh you never know what could happen. John Wall had like 30 assists last year in the rookie/sophomore challenge. I'd like Blake to be on the winning team but he may not play that much considering he's not really getting a "break" as he's playing in that game ( more than likely starting ) and starting in the ASG and he's on a playoff team.

i just think that barkley will try to go against the grain with some wild picks because he doesnt usually like to give players that get attention credit. that will be his undoing. but i agree, blake might just play half the game at most.
