    I was wondering when someone was gonna post this.

    It really is a shame that Jeremy is getting more votes than Harden. I like Jeremy but, thus far, he doesn't deserve to be in the All-star game.

    That's the problem with all-star votes.

    Just like when Yao got in his last all-star game, he really didn't deserve it.

    Nah, Harden was a career backup until he became a starter.

    The real shame is that both are getting more votes than Russell Westbrook.

    lol no


    They just vote on "guards." There are no PG / SG distinctions for the all-star game, and if you look, Kobe and Chris Paul are ahead of both as starters.

    I'd have Harden over Westbrook but not Lin.

    Harden is having an exceptional year himself, I think it's debatable which one of these two deserves the spot if it was a last spot situation.

    Come on. We all know All-star voting is mostly about popularity. It's not based on skill since people don't vote that way.

    If Lin can overtake Paul, there is a good chance Westbrook doesn't go and Harden makes it as a reserve. LOL Screw you OKC!

    Dwight Howard doesn't deserve to be there over Tim Duncan.

    Deron Williams underwelming this season.

    It is what it is -- a popularity contest.

    Anyway, Jeremy won't get in before Paul and Kobe, so that saves Rockets embarrassment. I know Les would like it probably, but it would be too controversial.

    Harden will get coaches vote and get in.

    Which is why I said Hardin beating out Paul is being hurt by China voting for Lin instead of Hardin. Of course, many could be voting the Rockets party-line Lin/Hardin ticket, but it looks like Lin/Kobe is party ticket.

    The reserves are chosen by coaches, the voting is only for the starters.

    lol if you think neither Westbrook nor Harden will be all star reserves
