Well, if we try what the MLB is doing (winner of all star game gives winning conference home court in finals) in addition to giving chinese citizens 1/4 of the vote and Chinese Americans 1/2 the vote, then maybe.. just maybe.. it will even out..

all star game process and selection is just a mess right now...

Um... no. The system works well as it is. The team that wins the most has home court as a reward. It's just a problem of not allowing everybody to vote.

I'd say it several times that I'd like the system more if it would allow only fans that go to the games to vote... The internet vote is what ruins the picks.

fellas...all we have to do is get a few sponsors for our players like nike, sprite, ea, mc donalds etc...and have a few sick tv ads and they're in…even if they got injured, quit, played a different sport, or died…ask anyone if they know who shaq is and they'll say he's a baskeball player, then ask them to vote and guess who they'll vote for, and of course they'll look for "air jordan" first.

Tru. I admit that I went to 3 computers and voted for Jason Richardson for guard last year.

But people that see many games on tV or on video, should have some voting power! It is harder to regulate and allows peole who have seen nothing and only go for their favourites but it is something

Um... no. If allowing them to vote serves to ruin the process, I'd say no (and I'm included in that group. I wouldn't be able to vote). It's the only way to have a (somewhat) fair system.

Not Houston; China.

For some reason, every single person from the Orient has a natural kinship with Yao Ming. It's like Oscar De La Hoya. Every single Mexican guy I've ever known (hell, even my Honduran friend and a couple guys I know from Brazil) all naturally align with him.

You don't see me pounding the vote button trying to get Todd Fuller onto the Italian all-star team, do you? Piss off and quit slandering the voting, you pricks.
