    I'm surprised Horford and Lopez are as low as they are.

    I'm sure Howard will get in with Bogut as the reserve.

    You;d think with Lopez being in the metropolitan New York area that he'd get more votes. Horford on the other hand, we all know Atlanta doesn't draw fans, even in the playoffs, but you'd think that Horford would corner the latin votes.

    Bargs offence is vastly superior to all mentioned.
    Listen, I don't disagree that the others have more energy, but I think you have a home-town bias against the guy. He's having a decent year, coming into his own offensively. Nobody stands out at #2 and I would put Bargnani in the mix.
    You don't do Horford justice. He's got a USG > 20, has a TS% of .600, and an offensive rating of 123.

    Bargnani doesn't come close to matching that offensive productivity.

    Bogut is not playing up to his standards offensively but he's clearly been better than Bargnani this year due to his defensive efforts alone.

    just because you can fly into newark if you're going to new york, and its only like a 20-30 minute drive on a good traffic day.. newark IS NOT metropolitan new york at all, and to even suggest it to anybody from either nyc or jersey would get you punched in the eye.

    dont tell me u think bargs is a stat padder. i've seen him pass more this year than cb did his entire tenure as a raptor.
    That's because Bosh had a higher percentage of shots going in and played closer to the basket then Bargs therefore if a pass didn't lead to an assist and Bosh established himself in the paint he might as well score (especially if you are avg closer to 50 percent or more in the FG%).

    I wouldn't say that Bargs pads his stats but much like Bosh on a better team when he isn't the first scoring option and they are actually winning as a result, his scoring touches, overall impact and points would go down as a result.

    For another example check out how Michael Beasley is doing on a bad team after switching from a winning team.

    You're right on the point that people from NYC don't like the notion of being lumped in or associated with Newark, but the reality is that it's considered part of the greater new york metropolitan area. Just like how Oshawa and Hamilton are considered GTA.

    arguing who deserves to play in a pointless game is pointless. its nothing more than a popularity contest and a reason to feed millionaires egos.

    there hasnt even been a competitive all-star game worth paying attention to in well over a decade.

    its the MTV Music Awards for basketball players. if you REALLY give a fuck about who makes the all-star game, you probably would dig this lesbian named justin bieber i keep hearing about.

    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    dude. NO THEY ARE NOT. anywhere i have to dial a "1" before "905" and i get dinged for a long distance call IS NOT part of my city. not sure about oshawa, but hamilton definitely falls into that category. plus hamilton has that wacky 289 area code too.

    the GTA is defined as Toronto and it's immediate townships or something to that effect... basically, if you dont have the option of being on the Toronto census, you're not Toronto

    NJ and NY may be REALLY close.. but by no means are they part of the same metropolitan area... i used to briefly live in bloomfield, nj, just north of newark... and people there are adamant about NOT being part of whatever the hell goes on in NY... and on the flipside, even mention NJ being part of their metropolitan area and you'll get laughed at, and possibly spit at, by a new yorker

    point being... NOBODY in NYC would vote for a player on a NJ team.
