    Lin would probably get in if the West wasn't so stacked. If he was in the Least he would probably be an all star.

    Don't underestimate his fanbase, he almost got in last year and this year has begun even better IMO
    Add to that the perceived controversy and mistreatment of 'benching' and you have a crazed fanbase ready to go all in

    But i agree, if he doesn't make the starting lineup, i doubt his play warrants an assistant coaches vote for the bench (at least at this point)

    Nope. I have a tendency to vote in scrubs on the East side, too.

    He finished 4th among guards last year, behind CP3, Kobe and Harden. But he was a distant 4th with like 50,000 votes behind Harden and 150,000 votes behind CP3. His only chance is that the coaches vote him in, I think. But he would have to keep playing at the level and the Rockets will have to be better than they have been.

    Knowing LA fans and Kobe die hard, he will probably get the most votes even if he doesn't play a minute. Like that one year Yao got voted in when he was out the whole year.

    Harden never finished in front of Lin. It was Kobe, CP3 and then Lin. Harden got voted in by the coaches.

    So far this year

    Demarcus Cousins and Jeff Teague should be all-stars

    Oh right! My bad. But I still remember Lin finishing a very distant third behind CP3.

    I agree! Boogie seems to finally get over his maturity hump and just play basketball. His PER is over 26! Averaging 22 and 11, he will get in! No wonder Morey was so high on trying to get him! And if Holliday got in last season for the East the Teague should get in now question this season. 20 and 10 is impressive!

    Just hope Cousins can keep it up, he isn't getting much help from his teammates he is shouldering a huge load right now.

    As for Teague good point on Holiday getting in last year, so if he keeps playing like he is he is a lock to get in. Atlanta lucked out by not doing the Jeff Teague for Brandon Jennings sign and trade swap this off-season.

    1. Kobe Bryant 1,591,437
    2. Chris Paul 929,155
    3. Jeremy Lin 883,809
    4. James Harden 485,986
    5. Russell Westbrook 376,411
    6. Steve Nash 270,741
    7. Tony Parker 176,168
    8. Stephen Curry 169,083
    9. Ricky Rubio 150,227
    10. Manu Ginobili 118,293


    Lin to Harden was distant. CP3 to Lin wasn't even 50k.

    Lin's fan base is like Lakers/Knicks homers x10. If Kobe splits the "best scorer" vote with Harden/Curry, and CP3 splits the "best PG" vote with Westbrook/Curry/Parker/Lillard, anything could happen.

    Lin getting voted in = more linsanity blowback = Lin continuing to be underrated

    This is good for us if we want to keep him and bad if we want to trade him. This is probably also the most effective ways fans are going to be able to impact this team.

    oh boy...now that Lin has been balling out of his mind, there's a shot he makes it in as a starter...how do you think rockets fans will feel about that?
