bold prediction: Jeremy Lin edges CP3 in west guard voting unless Stern fudges with voting numbers like he did a few years back to prevent Yi Jianlian from being a starting forward in the east

he's fallen off very quickly after adjustments have been made after game 2, but if he returns to form, the coaches will vote him in. there's no way he tops kobe or cp3 for fan votes though

Nope.
The internet voting then already had less percentage value in the count for total votes. Arena votes hold more weight.

I reckon he'll fall short, but end up around fifth in voting among guards in the West.

I sure wished they did the voting based off position, kinda rough for people who play front court who have to go against two other positions...

I reckon the distance between Paul and Lin will be much larger when it's all said and done, comfortably giving CP3 the nod alongside Kobe in the backcourt for the West. I'm a little surprised to see KG getting so many votes, but I'm guessing Bosh or Chandler (perhaps more likely Bosh) could very well end up overtaking him.

Could be worse, Irving is back in the lineup so he's currently available to play.

I hope Bosh can overtake KG so the Big 3 would start for the East. Damn, a lot of Heat fans, Battier has more votes then Varejao and Deng...
