    Default 3 Raptors on the All-Star Ballot, lets send them to the game! (see post 4)

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Forward Andrea Bargnani and guards Jose Calderon and DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors are on the ballot for next month's NBA all-star game in Orlando.

    They are joined by Victoria guard Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets centre Samuel Dalembert and Miami Heat centre Joel Anthony, both of Montreal.

    The NBA kicked off the balloting process Wednesday for the mid-season showcase at the Amway Center on Feb. 26. The ballot lists 24 guards, 24 forwards and 12 centres from each conference.

    Fans will select the starting lineup for each conference via text and online ballot. The voting will conclude Jan. 31 and the starters will be announced Feb. 2.

    All three Toronto players are looking to make their first appearance at the mid-season showcase.

    i say we should try and get both DeRozan and bargs in. DeMar might not make it this year but bargnani definitely should.

    Default Jose Calderon is playing epic basketball ...

    With the way Jose Calderon is playing right now, he is putting up Rondo like numbers, I could see all three of our guys making it if they keep this up. I just voted for all three.

    There's too many good SG in the east that dont play for a Canadian team for DeMar to get in. But Bargnani has a good chance backing up Howard though, he should for sure make it. And I hate to admit it due to how well Jose is doing but the PG's are basically already picked with D-Will and Rondo for the East

    yeah, it's early and it's a useless comparison but just for fun, check out who are currently ranked 7th and 8th in scoring in the NBA right now (although that should change after tonight). I guess while you're at it, you might as well check who's 9th

    Rondo like number in assist never been a problem for Jose, but this year is a presence also in the defensive end
    Let's go Raptors!

    Bargnani is listed as a forward, not as a center.

    Calderon is third in the league in assists, but he averages less than 2 turnovers a game, unlike his counterparts who are ahead of him on the assist number.

    Great Picks .40 Cal! I had Bargs, Bosh, Calderon, DD and Howard as well. Haha
    Bosh has playing stellar ball this year. No need for bashing in my opinion.

    In the West I went with KLove, Durant, Paul, Bryant and Bynum.

    I simply voted for just Bargs, Calderon, and Derozan lol.......I would love to see a Raptor in the ASG, and I really don't care who else makes it, because regardless of who does, you know it's going to be entertaining and those other stars will get their votes...

    BOSH? REALLY???? .....dissapointed lol
    Your ex came by; you can call me Jonas Valanciunas, cause I'm the king of rebounds!

    Hey Guys,
    I voted for Demar and Andrea but I chose to vote for Rose at the PG instead of Jose. Although I have to say I do love his play so far. There were too many good guards in the east to avoid picking.

    I voted:

    East

    PG: Derrick Rose
    SG: Demar Derozan
    SF: Lebron James
    PF: Andrea Bargnani
    C: Dwight Howard

    West

    PG: Chris Paul
    SG: Kobe Bryant
    SF: Kevin Durant
    PF: Blake Griffin
    C: Andrew Bynum

    I have to agree with huskie2raps, really guys bosh??

    Same here, gotta be realistic, if you watch the Raptors Post Up on NBATV Canada after games, David Amber told Jose after last nights game that he was in the All Star ballot, and Jose started laughing , 'cause he knows that he doesn't have a chance at all, its the sad truth.

    Bosh is one of the more consistant PFs in the league today.

    He still looks like he belongs in the zoo, or a museum.

    I would say the only player who has a realistic shot at earning an All-Star berth is Bargnani, and that would have to be via coaches' votes. I don't see him making enough noise (outside Toronto) for NBA fans to vote for Bargnani....especially if the Raptors have a losing record.

    And since the ballot doesn't distinguish between PGs and SGs, DeRozan and Jose will be competing against each other for votes. And with Rose, D.Will, Allen, J.Johnson, Wade, and Rondo all but guaranteed a roster spot, it won't be easy for our guys.
