now they're letting these idiots take over the dunk contest too but hey, it's not about the dunks. its about who the fans want to see as the champ :rolleyes:

They should just ban people from voting period. It's like a popularity contest more than who really deserves it. Like WTF...Yao???

*As a side note, I'm glad yao is being voted in for the simple fact that now the NBA coaches will be able to probably vote in a PF like Love or Griffin to start, without putting in Bynum who doesn't deserve to be an all-star this year..

Love or Griffin getting in the starting spot will also improve Monta's chances for comming off the bench since a slot will be open..

coaches won't be voting for the replacement. they're gonna fill out their ballots just like everybody else: under the false premise that yao's gonna be starting. once the roster is set, david stern is gonna be the one to name the replacement.


& you don't necessarily take over a person's starting spot just because you're their injury replacement. for example, david lee replaced iverson last year and van gundy made joe johnson the starter. at the end of the day, gasol or duncan will probably be the one holding down the starting spot.


i do think either love or griffin will be yao's replacement though; but who knows, stern might go straight for monta ellis

Also I really hope Blake Griffin doesnt get screwed by the coaches. Duncan should not be an all star this year.

rondo's a$sists get him all his fans..

props.. but at the end of the day.. Stern making the replacement is far better than having the fans vote.. Atleast we know for sure it will be Love or Griffin or someone who deserves it.. IT likely wont be Bynum or another undeserving Western C.. And if the coaches can alter the lineup, then they'll just move a PF in there.. Maybe Gasol/Dirk will be starting..

Either way having Yao voted in is a plus because it keeps out the other undeserving Centers, and gives Stern the chance to make it right, is the way I view it..

exactly, but then again, those numbers don't look too good, as far as voter turnout.
