Possibly, the game nowadays is all about high flying dunks and playmakers. Jordan is now too old to be competing in an up tempo playground style game. Watching him clunk that dunk last year was classic though :lol:

It's not that he didnt deserve it, it's that he probably would have preferred not to be on it. He didn't want the NBA selecting him because it's his last year. He wanted to take a vacation with his family. If they pick Jordan, then why not pick David Robinson? It will be fun to see him play since he can compete with these guys(admit it, he'd be all-star caliber if he were the first option of the Wiz)

Vince Carter has been selected by ignorant fans though. Jordan was voted by coaches, who are supposed to be experts on the subject.

ron artest?
1. nobody cares about a loser who throws a camera once, then thinks he is the new tough guy in the nba by disrespecting pat riley and the miami heat, i hate him, and i hope somebody really hurts that punk.

2. players who aren't in the east all-star team that are better than ron artest: jalen rose, ricky davis, jerry stackhouse, shareef abdur-rahim, sam cassell, ray allen, glenn robinson, baron davis, jason terry, donyell marshall, eddie jones, rip hamilton, allan houston

I Agree in some point JJ. All those players would be a better pick than R. Artest. Hasn't the NBA done anything yet about Ron?, he should be suspended just the same way Rasheed was, I believe he's just trying to get the attention. That's what happens when you are a good player and nobody cares what you do.

I didn't agree to anything... you agreed with me that Jordan didn't deserve his spot. I think Vince does deserve it.

Jan. 29

Indiana Pacers forward Ron Artest is suspended without pay for four games for confronting and making physical contact with Miami Heat head coach Pat Riley, taunting the Heat bench, committing a flagrant-foul penalty two by pushing Heat guard Caron Butler into the stands and making an obscene gesture toward fans.


:roll:

Peja Stojakovic is going to substitute Weber in the All-Star Line up.
