    That depends on who you ask. At the end of the day, the NBA is a business and they will give what the fans ask for. Regardless if they are right or wrong. At least as fans we have the power to influence the results.

    Perhaps they need to apply a certain minimum requirement before they can be voted upon. That would eliminate some obvious candidates.

    Since it's a popularity contest, we should never mention all-star appearances for players when we talk about what they achieved.

    Based on the current system, I agree. It should be based on merit and the value they bring to an organization due to their performance.
