    I didn't know Eastern Europe had that type of voting power.

    I don't care for the all-star game, so seeing him make it would have been pretty funny.


    You don't want to know. It's a scary place.

    Get ready for some sick NBA moves in ASW:

    This was my favorite move growing up as a kid. Basketballers know this go right spin left move too well, but it's fun to use it every once in a while because it works. I would float it in since I wasn't that gifted.

    Kobe Bryant at #1 is a bigger joke than Zaza at #4.

    He is shooting 34%, has a PER of 12, NEGATIVE win share value, NEGATIVE +/-, and a NEGATIVE value over NBA average replacement player.
    Might be only all-star starter ever to have advanced stats that show he is better off-court than on-court compared to the average NBA player.

    Its obvious why he's getting voted in though, one of greatest players of all time retiring due to injuries.

    Im surprised Dirk isn't going to make it, how in the hell does Zaza make it over Dirk since both are Euro's, except Dirk is also one of the greatest PF's in history who is still clearly the best player on a overachieving Mavs roster.

    Zaza and Kanter making it is gross. Them cutting out AD and Cousins is ridiculous.

    How many bigs make the cut? Its 8 forwards and 5 guards right?

    It's a bit surprising but he's an international player and people from his country cast a lot of votes just like Lithuanians do with JV or canadians with Wiggins or Raptors players. It's not "the end of the world" as Barkley almost makes it to be.

    Stuff like this happens when let the fans vote
    Look what's happening to NHL all star voting
    John Scott got voted as a starter
    If you don't know who he is, he not enough good enough to play I the NHL currently yet he still got enough votes to be in the all star game
