Ray Allen would like to change the All-Star rules
By Reid Cherner, USA TODAY

Celtics superstar Ray Allen thinks those who watch the NBA All-Star Game should not pick who they want to see in the game.

He says fan voting has "watered down" the game.

Not that he doesn't have a point with Tracy McGrady and Allen Iverson on the verge of being voted in this year.

"I like the fact that the fans get the opportunity to vote and pick who they'd like to see in the All-Star Game, but I don't think it should be 100 percent," said Allen, who would like fans to have 50% of the vote and the media and players having the other 50%.


To me, it sounds like he's bitching. The all-star game is an exhibition match, created for the fans, so why shouldn't they decide who they want to see??
