Voting ends this Wednesday so there are a few games still for a player to differentiate himself from the pack but this is how I think it's all going to go down.
Irving: Best numbers for a Point Guard 23 PPG 5.6 APG 3.6 RPG disgustingly high FG percentages of 46% from the floor and 41% from 3. His team is terrible but he's already a Star player and could potentially become a Superstar if he gets a bit of help in Cleveland someday. Downside is that he's been injury prone so coaches might take that into account with the team's record.
George: He's been an absolute Stud defensively. And not too shabby offensively and he's been the best player on the 3rd best team in the East and Indy deserves an All Star. I'll be shocked if he isnt.
Chandler: 2nd best player on the 2nd best team in the East..shoulda been the starter at the 5 and if he woulda there would be alot less controversy on what will end up happening when the reserves are announced officially.
Noah: Anchoring the Bulls defense and puttin up numbers of 12 points 11 boards 4 assists and 2 Blocks. Very high assist numbers for a Center, I think it's too hard to not have him on this team and the Chi needs a guy on the All Star squad. Could be Deng or Boozer but Noah I think deserves it over the other guys.
Smith: Josh Smith is due, he got absolutely snubbed last year and even though the Hawks have been slipping a little bit as of late they are still the 6th best team record-wise in the East and he's stat sheet stuffing with 16 points 8 boards just under 4 Asts 1.3 Steals and 2.3 Blocks per game. It's either going to be him or Horford and Im giving Smith the Edge since it's his turn.
Brook Lopez: Team high 19 PPG 7 RPG 2 Blocks and a whopping 25.6 PER and the team with the current 4th best record in the East deserves an All Star
Paul Pierce: Having yet another solid season in Boston, despite father time trying to slow him down. Celtics are on a roll right now climbing up the Standings and teams/coaches have alot of respect for Boston and alot of respect for Paul Pierce and that is why I think he makes this team. Boston doesnt deserve 3 guys but it's the fans fault not Paul Pierce's.
Snubs: Jennings, Deron Williams, Al Horford, Jrue Holiday, Joe Johnson, Deng and Boozer
Deron Williams: has said in the last week or so "I dont deserve to be an All Star" so if he is that's an absolute joke In my opinion, and shame on the coaches for giving him love if he does get the nod.
Horford: is having a good year but I just think Smith is having a better one and that it's his turn, could go either way tho and I wouldnt be surprised or bothered.
Jrue Holiday: has the numbers to be an All Star but I dont think you can have 2 guards on losing teams be the All Star Backcourt and Irving is superior so I think he'll get the nod Jrue, but he'll have his shot down the line.
Joe Johnson: he's been solid and the Nets are a team to reckon with in the East again so he'll get votes but not enough to make the team.
Deng: got some love last year I dont think Chicago deserves two guys on the squad.
Boozer: has been destroying opposing defenses lately but all year opposing offenses have been destroying him.
Last but not least BJ...I think his best shot would be the argument of him being on a winning team. But his numbers dont stand out enough and opposing coaches have he and Ellis muddled together in their gameplans so often that I dont think the coaches will show Jennings enough love to make the squad. Which is too bad because with Rose out and Irving still a year or so removed from Superstar status this year was probly his best shot. I hope im wrong though and I bet somewhere down the line in his career he'll finally get the nod. This year I give him 40% shot at making the team
Fans screwed it up voting for KG at Center...Damn you Boston!!
Let me know what y'all think, if you disagree that's fine let me know, Id also like to hear other peoples thoughts on what they think the potential Eastern Conference All Stars could end up being.
