    Default Does Demar deserve to be in the All-Star game?

    Apart from last night's game, where he had 0 rebounds and 0 stls, i think so far, Demar deserves to be in the all-star game.

    What do you guys think?

    I think he's certainly in the discussion. Being on the Raptors though, we know for a fact that he won't be voted in by the fans, so it's up to the coaches to choose him.

    Sadly, Wade and Deron Williams should get a large chunk of fan votes (whether they statistically deserve it or not).

    Paul George is a lock (depending on whether he's listed as a guard).

    John Wall

    Jeff Teague's putting together a very solid season.

    Yup, DeMar's a definite possibility. We've never been able to say that before. Hooray for trade value!

    If scoring points gets you to the game, then yes he should be there with him being 12th in the NBA in PPG. But overall, he doesn't deserve to be considered an all-star. Bottomline, he's a good player on a terrible team.

    Christ, give me some high-tops, a tank top and some nuthuggers and I could score 10 ppg for this team. Just sayin'.

    Demar making the all star is just as possible and with just as much merit as the Raptors making the playoffs in the East. Shallow pools to draw from this year..

    He's definately in the running. If he keeps up the high percentage shooting % I think he'll probably take the coach vote.

    He's definitley got a shot.

    This is a complete guess as to the starters but here's who I see:

    Irving
    Wade
    Lebron
    Melo
    Hibbert

    Reserve "locks":
    George
    Wall
    Horford
    Lopez
    Deng

    Then you've got the next level of guys like DD, Beal, Afflalo, Turner and Teague who should all be in consideration for those last two spots. DD has as good of a shot as any of them right now but a lot can change in 2+ months.

    I get your logic about having Wade as a starter (voting system), but I think George has reached a level that he can surpass even Wade in votes this year.

    Fair enough. Flip the two (make George the starter and Wade a lock as a reserve) and my point remains identical.

    MCW is this year's Linsansity.. got to include him in any guard list. Afflalo is having a heck of a year too. If Rondo comes back and plays like he can for a month+ than he may be considered too.

    It won't be a lock but he'll be a candidate.

    DeRozan is not an all-star.

    A key part of an all-star, outside of fan voting for starting 5, is the coaches vote.

    Raptors suck.
    DeRozan is the lead on a shit team but not spectacular.

    Too early to tell. If he can keep it up, he could slip in as a reserve. I think Lance Stephenson has a better chance at this point though (starting on the top team, coaches voting is less impressed by scoring) but lots can change.

    George Hill could also be considered. Indiana is having a heck of a season.. why not include all their starting 5?

    The only thing going against Wade is he sits games due to preservation.

    I think, and this is just me, coaches usually pick players who stand out from their respective teams. Demar is definitely one of those. Compared to Teague who is playing good but Horford seems to stand out more in Atlanta. I may be wrong, but this is probably the only way that Demar gets into the ASG.

    Just like the Pistons in their 2000's heyday.
