All-Star Silliness

According to the most recent All-Star voting tally (http://www.nba.com/2009/news/12/31/allstar.ballot.3/index.html), Tracy McGrady and Allen Iverson are set to be among this year's starters.  Anyone who's been paying attention this year knows what waste of an All-Star spot this would be.  As a Celtics fan, I don't really care who makes the All-Star teams.  But as a fan of the game, I get a little irked by these things.  So here's what I propose: Let's get a Hoops Justice movement going.  Head over to NBA.com, vote for All-Star starters, and vote for the 2 players behind McGrady and Iverson, respectively, along with whoever else you want.  So in McGrady's case, that would mean voting for Steve Nash and Chris Paul as your Western Conf. guards.  Totally legitimate picks, by the way.  For Iverson, that means voting for Vince Carter and Ray Allen as your Eastern Conf. guards.  For the record, as much as I love Ray, I don't think either he or Vince really deserves a spot ahead of guys like Rajon Rondo or Joe Johnson, but neither of them have a realistic shot of unseating Iverson.  So if you wanna get some Hoops Justice done,  go vote as many times as you can in the next 16 days (limit of one vote per day, and you have to create or log into your NBA.com account).  All of this is obviously very subjective, and if you're a T-Mac or Iverson fan, hey, congrats.  Go ahead and vote for your boys.  But in case you agree with me and wanna do something about it, go vote for Nash, Paul, Vince, and Ray, and pass the word along.


Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
