    You guys were doing a good enough job of beating him up, I didn't want to pile on.

    You are a good person!

    Ironically I've never felt so special!

    I won't hassle KGREG that much about this. Big men may not be his specialty, but he's a terrific scout when it comes to point guards and superstar wives.

    Don't worry about it, I also rimmed out on my assessments. Here is a tasty excerpt from my posts

    Even if you weren't keen on Drumm you didn't miss out on the feeding frenzy.

    Perhaps they had a clueless coach with an agenda against winning.

    You liked all of KGREG's bogus posts, though. Don't think I wouldn't catch that...

    KGREG and I had a debate all year about Dre at Uconn. My feeling was that the entire UConn situation was dysfunctional, and that Dre's talent would eventually win out.

    The kid was just too big and athletic not to be at least decent in the League.

    James edging Durant after first All-Star Ballot returns | NBA.com

    Looks like the casual fan outside Michigan and this forum has no love for Dre.....no way he should be that far down the list behind KG, Noah and Jeff Green.... It's all about stuffing the ballot boxes and the fans at the palace should be doing it... Kobe has played 2 games and leads the west backcourt

    Frontcourt:

    1. LeBron James (Mia) 609,336
    2. Paul George (Ind) 489,335
    3. Carmelo Anthony (NYK) 424,211
    4. Roy Hibbert (Ind) 208,369
    5. Chris Bosh (Mia) 156,364
    6. Kevin Garnett (BKN) 102,825
    7. Joakim Noah (Chi) 75,229
    8. Jeff Green (Bos) 55,912
    9. Luol Deng (Chi) 54,340
    10. Tyson Chandler (NYK) 51,738
    11. Andre Drummond (Det) 51,351
    12. Carlos Boozer (Chi) 48,745
    13. Paul Pierce (BKN) 45,145
    14. Brook Lopez (BKN) 37,153
    15. Josh Smith (Det) 32,025

    Besides the selection of the starters, aren't the fan votes irrelevant?

    It would just be nice if the fans recognize Dre as a starter in this his second year as oppose relying on the coaches to add him in after the fact. At this point he is probably the only player we have to represent, and would rather see him playing major minutes in THE game instead of the just rookie-Soph game or whatever they call it these days.

    Have to wonder if Kobe wasn't scheduled to comeback until the end of January, would he still be leading the west back court voting?
