2020 All-Star Game

Postby [Q] on Wed Jan 01, 2020 8:07 am

I know it's about a month away, but I feel like we've seen enough to know who is in the mix to be an all-star this season.

I think one new pick will be Ingram in the west, as he has been one of the best players all season long. He might get snubbed like most deserving players in their first year. Is Luka a guard? If so I'd say he and Harden are in the back court with LeBron, AD, and KAT.

In the east I'd say Kyrie and Kemba with Giannis, Embiid, and another newcomer in Siakam.

Assuming they decide Luka is a guard, I see the all-stars shaking out like this:

West
Starters: Harden, Doncic, LeBron, Kawhi, Anthony Davis
Reserves: Lillard, Chris Paul, Paul George, Towns, Jokic, Westbrook, Mitchell
Alternates: Booker, Ingram, Aldridge

East
Starters: Kemba, Lowry, Butler, Giannis, Embiid
Reserves: Simmons, Beal, Jayson Tatum, Siakam, Sabonis, Drummond, Jaylen Brown
Alternates: Middleton, Trae Young, Dinwiddie

First round of voting is in, and Trae Young and Siakam are in as of now. So is Kawhi.

Alex Caruso is 8th on the list for guards. He should be higher!!

SMH Melo has more votes than Ingram, but yes this is a popularity contest after all

Tacko getting a bunch of votes as well. I'm not a fan of the league diluting the fan vote, but meme players in the starting five probably was inevitable barring the league meddling with the results

They already started cancelling fan vote unofficially back when Yi Jianlian was playing. The Chinese would've voted him as a starter.

Didn't Zaza almost get voted in recently?
