And Lee is outperforming most of those guys. And he is also playing on a winning team. Up to this season we were telling ourselves that it is because we are losing team that we don't have players in the All-Star, but Rockets are not so good, Lakers are a losing team as a matter of fact...there's a bunch of other players there from the teams that are not as good, and those players are not even good, heck some of them haven't even played a game, yet they are there and Lee is not. **** that.
But, the sad truth is that voting is bringing money to the NBA, so it is here to stay. If they could at least give it less of a meaning...damn, people are retarded.
The voting is only for the starting players, so five players. The West coaches pick the rest, as it should be and I do think Lee has a strong chance to get a spot. PGasol won't get it, the Lakers are so awful. Neither will Nash this season and maybe Harden won't either, as the Rockets are not winning that much.
I had read that it is no longer guards, forwards and Centers, but now backcourt and frontcourt, meaning Centers do not get in automatically now. That being as it is, MGasol might not get a spot, so Lee might get picked ahead of him. I'd say Dwight, BGriffin, ZRandolph and Duncan will get frontcourt spot and then it's Lee the frontrunner for the next frontcourt spot.
Same sort of thing with Curry. Lin won't get in. The guards likely to get a spot right now are CPaul, Kobe, Westbrook and Parker. I think Jamal Crawford is a real chance, as the Clippers are doing very well and he has been big for them.
