    If he gets the MVP award this year in the Finals you are going to have to wash his head. LOL

    Billups was only 6th in guard voting when the first round of returns were announced last week:

    Guards: Dwyane Wade (Mia) 470,921; Jason Kidd (NJ) 343,468; Vince Carter (NJ) 277,705; Ray Allen (Bos) 270,114; Gilbert Arenas (Wash) 256,994; Chauncey Billups (Det) 125,202; Michael Redd (Mil) 101,942; Andre Iguodala (Phi) 70,476; Richard Hamilton (Det) 66,617; T.J. Ford (Tor) 58,894.

    Arenas certainly won't make the team, so CB is definitely in the top 5.

    This game might help him in the voting. Though I agree with what to me seems like the majority on this forum that it would be better for all of our guys to rest during the all star break, except for Herrmann who we can enter in the 3 point contest. LOL

    Don't the fans pick only 2 G, 2 F, 1 C? And then the coaches choose the reserves? I'd think the coaches would pick Chauncey as a reserve at the very least. Also seeing as how they don't vote by position couldn't you end up with two point guards starting, say like Chauncey and Jason Kidd by example? Or two SFs? Just wondering if anyone knows how it all works. Also, is anyone on this forum voting every day for their Pistons or anyone else for that matter?

    NO!!!!!!!!! It is the consensus of the Forum that we do not want ANY PISTONS in the All-Star Game. As the real die-hard core Piston fan base, we are fully aware of our teams inability to handle mainstream success and hype.

    I think that is what I said. Resting during the all star break is the same as not being in the all star game. Majority and consensus mean the same thing in this context.

    LOL you guys! Calm down. I didn't mean to suggest that we should be voting for them or trying to get them in. It was merely a point of information: Is anyone on this forum voting regularly for the All Star Team? Because I always have wondered if anyone really votes daily for the guys they like. That's all. Geez. :) I agree...I don't want anyone on the Pistons to be an All-Star. It's Bad Medicine for them. (Well maybe AJ!:pound:)

    Think you are right. The fans vote for starters and the coaches will vote for the reserves. CB will definitely get a the coaches vote to be the reserves. Unless Rip averages 20 pts with > 50% shooting from now on, think he'll get voted in too.

    Don't think any PISTON will be a starter.

    Kevin Garnett leads NBA All-Star voting; no Pistons in starting lineup as of now

    Hopefully, Chauncey can stay out of the game and get that chip on his shoulder bigger.

    Yi is 5th in forwards and Chauncey is 6th in the guard division.

    Nice system. Too bad it doesn't work.

    It's also a little weird that Shaq is 2nd in the center category. He is terrible right now.

    Sheed > Ben too.

    Ben's visits to the All-Star game ended when he moved to Chicago.

    I'm with the rest of you. I'd rather no Piston made the squad for this stupid game. I lost the thrill for All-Star "competition" after seeing CB, Rip, Sheed & Ben play that game...then go on to lose to Miami.

    With the exception of the MLB All-Star game which now captures World Series home field advantage to the winning league, there really is no point to All-Star games in professional sports. What? A coming together of multi-million $ athletes in hope to promote league marketing? Without a meaning to the outcome of the game it's all just fluffy advertising. None of the mega-buck athletes take the games seriously...most of them would probably prefer to just have a weekend off in mid-season. And I'm sure many NFL Pro-Bowlers would rather not have to play another game after being beat up all season. I've never watched an entire Pro-Bowl in my life...has anyone outside of Hawaii?

    I used to watch the Pro-Bowls to see what Barry would do.
