    Not suprising on Scola, he won't get voted on.

    Yao leading the centers is a shame, love the big guy but that is horrible. Although that center list is very underwhelming.

    doesn't matter. no way is he getting voted in; no one figured that. Picked by the coach, maybe. But with Griffin passing him, and Gasol not being listed as Center, it will be tough.

    Yao's going to start though, haha.

    The situation of West Centers is a joke. This ballot came back yesterday and Bynum is the second Center in line and he's only played a combined 30 minutes this season so far.

    He's ranked low? Which of the players above him should he be beating out?

    And the candidates for C in the WC is a joke. Both Duncan and Gasol are essentially starting centers for their respective teams.

    He should be ahead of Odom, but that it. Forward is a stacked position.

    Odom and Duncan. But Love should arguably be ahead of Scola.

    Odom is underrated. He's a superior player. Far more versatile and strong on both ends of the floor. I'd give Scola an edge in terms of bringing consistent effort every game, though.

    that must be the result of all those china votes right? :rolleyes:

    most people like to call out the china voters but almost everyone is bias in voting and this shows it. i remember a few years ago when bruce bowen was a leading vote getter after initial returns.

    and come on really, who else is there to vote for at C in the west...none of those guys are real standouts.

    would be hard for luis to be in if the rockets are below .500 when the coaching make their final vote


    Gasol and Duncan should be listed at Center...at the very least Gasol should he started at Center every game this season.

    Considering the names on the ballot no wonder why Yao is leading even though the top 2 vote getting centers played what a total of 100 minutes between the two of them all season?

    What was your argument back when Yao was getting voted in over Shaq.

    Other than Odom, I don't see him better than any of the forwards ranked ahead of him. You can argue that he's played better than Duncan this season, but it's Duncan. He'll get a fair share of votes regardless.

    Scola's position looks about right. Fisher over Martin is much more of a disgrace.

    didnt care, they get there votes just like you and me. they can vote for who ever they want, just like you and me...

    and again, since the C's in the west dont stand apart from one another, what wrong with voting for your teams player? thats probably where the guys at the bottom of the list got there votes.
