    Well 3rd all-star returns are back and it seems Ron Artest is closing in on the starting spot. Less than 100K votes away from second place Amare Stoudamire.

    Wow, when are they going to do something about this? Tracy and Ron should not be all-stars. At some point they have to do something to prevent this type of thing from happening. Regional voting caps, maybe? What can be done, because this isn't working.

    Ron is more deserving than T-Mac though easily. Half man half effort is T-Mac's new name.

    I can't believe Yi Jianlian is #3 in Forwards. That's a shame.

    He does not deserve to be an All-Star.

    I honestly think the league should chop off about 30% of the votes for Rockets players, just to be fair. Or maybe only count votes outside the US/Canada as half votes. There are some crazy results there.

    CP3 will be voted in by the coaches. We need to vote tmac in cause that's the only way he'll be in the game.

    Seriously, why do you want to see T-Mac in the all-star game? I know he doesn't want to be there. He doesn't run or get out in transition. He doesn't dunk anymore. What would be the purpose?

    Yi has almost 5 times the number of votes as Joe Johnson. That's a travesty.

    What's even more of a travesty is Rafer still has more votes than top 10 MVP candidate Brandon Roy.

    I'm ok with Artest making it... Tracy? No way. He doesn't deserve it, especially the way he has been playing lately.

    That's because the vast majority of people who are fans of Brandon Roy are also intelligent, and they know he's not one of the two best guards in the conference.

    He doesn't but I'm glad he's ahead of Paul Pierce. Screw that guy.
