    Question Mark All-Star Selections

    Its early doors yet but who do you see being selected for the 2013 All-Star game and who might make appearances at the other events?

    Personally, if JR Smith keeps playing like he has then he deserves to get called up! I would also like to see Shump in the dunk contest and Prigioni in the rookie game

    Thoughts?

    from a biased Knicks fan, yes. Reality says no. I voted for Melo even though I don't really like his character, but no doubt he is a great ball player. He could be sooo much better and we would have a very serious chance at a championship if he would actually take this job seriously instead of just riding on his talents.

    Don't shoot me, but I personally think aside from Melo, we don't have any other All-Stars on our team.

    No way! Shump should not be anywhere near the all star game, and he'd likely fail miserably in the dunk contest with his tiny hands.

    James White in the dunk contest, agree J R Smith is among the top SG's in the East, he should get a bench spot. Tyson should be on there but since they changed it to frontcourt as opposed to F's and C's I doubt he'll make it. Melo is clearly a lock if healthy.

    Whats that got to do with anything? He is (was?) crazy athletic and can palm the ball. Pretty sure he could come up with something creative enough to win.

    James White is not what he used to be back in his Bearcat days.

    Has a bench player ever been elected as an All-Star? It must have happened a few times but I'm drawing a blank on thinking of who. I rather see Tyson get voted in than JR though.

    This is absolutely what The East 5 should be

    actually, Tyson and Melo are the only two candidates.

    Amare is still an all star. He may not be a superstar anymore but he's gonna put up all star numbers and would have made the team this year if healthy
