    Default All-Star Reserves - Congratulations DeMar DeRozan!

    With the all-star reserves scheduled to be announced tomorrow, I figured it would be a good time for RR prognosticators to put on their Nostradamus hat, in an attempt to secure bragging rights.

    Which Raptor player(s) will be selected?

    Both

    My heart says both and my head says one... I gave the nod to Lowry.

    I gotta say both will be added and rightfully so.

    With all the talk around Demar, I think he's a lock. At this point, I'd be VERY surprised if Demar didn't make it.

    I think Kyle is going to slip in there though, after his Triple-Double and recent 30 point game.

    I think Derozan is a lock with all the U.S media attention he gets, and Lowry should make it but the coaches are likely to split the votes between him and Derozan

    If it were a fan vote - DD, but since the coaches are picking, I voted for Lowry. I just can't see both making it, but would love to be shown wrong.

    I hope both make it.

    It only helps the Raptors if they both stay or eventually go.

    I think both deserve in but there's no way they put two Raptors. I think there's a significantly higher chance of there being no Raptor than there being two (just because I'm incredibly confident that they'll split the Raptor vote).

    With that said, I'd say Lowry deserves it more based on play/impact, but I think the higher PPG will give Demar the nod.

    A few beat writers have been talking about how Kyle's perception as not getting along with his coaches hurts the likelihood of other coaches voting for him. Which would be awful if that was the case, but I can't help wondering if those writers have talked to coaches and picked up on it. But on the other hand, if Latrell Spreewell can be voted an all-star a couple years after physically choking PJ Carlisimo, they should be able to look past almost anything.

    Yeah, I can't see Frank Vogel (for example) being like, "Kevin McHale once told me a story about Lowry. It took place 3 years ago. I'm gonna vote for Dion Waiters instead".

    Well the way Lowry's been torching team after team this season if he doesn't get the love from coaches it will be the snub of all snubs. If the season ended today he would likely be top 10 in MVP voting, put it that way.

    I fear that this kind of thinking might not bode well for DeRozan (or at least for both DeRozan and Lowry making the cut): http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/10...l-breakthrough

    No way Afflalo should make it over DeRozan

    I agree.

    Team wins have to mean something if it always has before. DeRozan is the 2nd best player on the 3rd best team in the conference.

    I agree wholeheartedly, but didn't Bosh make it on a sub-par Raptors squad?

    Bosh was a clear favourite at his position back then

    It's too bad the Magic are awful. American media hasn't had as much to say about Afflalo compared to DeRozan/Lowry due to team success.

    Anyways, I say DeRozan is a lock because of all the love he gets from the media not only in the US, but even here (aside from RR, lol), but we very well could see Lowry & DeRozan in the game - both are deserving anyways.

    I'd go out on a limb and say Lowry and DeRozan are much more deserving of the nods over Afflalo, J. Johnson, and maybe even Noah (again, considering team success).
