Amare to Start in ASG

The official announcement isn’t until tonight (live on TNT!), but just between you and I … : “Suns star Amaré Stoudemire rallied to a personal victory this week, passing Denver’s Carmelo Anthony in fan voting to earn his first start in an NBA All-Star Game. Stoudemire edged Anthony for the second forward spot alongside San Antonio’s Tim Duncan and Houston’s Yao Ming in the Western Conference frontcourt for the Feb. 15 game in Phoenix.”

    good & deserved.

    Good for A’mare!

  • http://www.allballsdontbounce.com thatguysweets

    It’s a popularity contest, whoop-dee-doo.
    I wonder how much impact that boring viral video he made had on his votes? I’m curious to see how many players on the All-Star Game roster dropped 3 points and went 0-7 against the Celtics this season.
    Overrated.

  • ENDS

    I stoped voting for 5 in the west and just concentrated on Shaq Amare and CP3

  • ENDS

    That guys a lil bitter. Cheer up baby (must be Carmelo in Disguise)

  • http://gmail.com Spaceship Jay

    I don’t think thatguy’s bitter, I think Amare is TRASH this season. Does he have back or knee problems? I noticed in that Boston debacle that he doesn’t bend his knees to save his life. Allstar voting should be taken away from the public. Everyone and anyone that is really interested in bball doesn’t vote.

    i usually do not swear here, or in general really! But holy bloody f*uckballsinamixer! After his great 47/19 etc line in november, sure but now? This is a joke. Alone his dissapearing acts against good teams (denver, boston) come to mind warrant a starting snub! You know who should start even before melo in the west? Scraggly blond from Wurzburg, thats who. No other wrstern forward has had a better season so far, none! TD i agree with, but Amaré? Not justified. At all! Eff this!

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    might as well put camby in there, since you know, he at least busts his butt for his team in a losing campaign and doesnt have a rejuvenated shaq doing all the dirty work for him so he can take breaks on D. Travesty this. Unbelievable

  • ENDS

    Its a glorified Pre-season game! Many people who deserve to be there dont always get to go (i.e. Hedo last year, Jameer This Year). Cry Me a river Build a bridge and Get Over it

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    says Ends while conveniently complaining that his boys from Epcot city have also been overlooked in the past/present. I’ll get over it when i choose, thanks. You are entitled to your views of the matter, of course.

  • ENDS

    im glad you caught that

  • ENDS

    David stern is trying to take over the world like Pinky. There’s no way he’ll ever give up fan Voting. If you had the Picks who would you put (honesty over hype)

  • ENDS

    Dwight
    Lebron
    Dwyane
    Maybe KG (though Raw Lew got a case)
    and no other reasonable choice than Premiere Nelson (yeah im a homer deal with it, but its not a bad choice)

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    me? My western 12 are TD/Diggler/Billups/Roy/cp3/CambyYao/shaq/mambiatch/melo/manu/Jet. Off the top of my head

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    take over the world like brain, you meant? Your line made me laugh though, gotta watch me some p&b soon. Classics

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBQEmmgDl9I Boing Dynasty

    3 Magic in the starting line up? NO.
    Devin Harris > Jameer Nelson
    Alot of people > “Raw Lew”

  • ENDS

    Pinky was there too, he just (like my man Premier Nelson All-Star09 Sub Mes) never gets any credit.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    indeed. Zoingggg.

  • ENDS

    D12
    Bron
    Wade
    KG
    Harris
    Iggy
    PP
    Premiere
    Raw Lew
    Lee
    and Bosh (Maybe)
    Reward the Best teams like the pistons 2 years ago

  • ENDS

    West
    Shaq
    Tim-may
    Dirk
    Bean
    CP3
    Yao
    B Roy
    Lamarcus Aldridge is playing great
    Melo (just because)
    Billups
    Kevin Durant
    Camby

    Those sound like the All-stars in the League

  • http://sportzin.com Joey E.

    ends c’mon. if marcus couldnt get in as a nug, he won’t get in now. and how can you say reward the best teams and not have PAU GASOL? he has better stats than Aldridge in every category. c’mon

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    I didn’t think ‘Melo deserved to start, but Amare deserves to even less the way he’s been disappearing in games the last few MONTHS. Still, normally I’d say oh well it’s all a big popularity contest, but man that campaign video he made SUCKED. Take a hint from Bosh, you need to know how to be funny first.

  • ENDS

    i ran out of players but yeah Pau gets in

  • ENDS

    i didnt even finish the east if you noticed (More reason for their to be room for nelson) I dont think people like Amare like that but it is his Home Arena

  • Jess

    thats awsome..although my second pick was melo…

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    I actually voted for Dirk over Amaré. And I’m not joking.

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    and (shameless!) the rest of my votes are on my blog. Thank you.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    only logical vote at that position really.

  • ColdVicious

    Kevin Durant deserves to see an allstar game sometime soon… he drops thirty a night no matter who he is playin… the Thunder need a few more years and they will be a premier team in the league… with the addition of blake griffin (or basically any of the many great first round picks this year) there team will instantly become better.

  • Los Man

    I voted for Amare a couple of times.

    I’m not a big Durant fan, but he deserved it over either of them.

  • MeloMan13

    watttt??Melo deserves it wayyyyy more. wen u guys put the results out it looked safe
    T-mac is the one who should get the boot from the starting lineup

  • whooo!

    something’s gotta be wrong with the numbers, but if you look at who amare nipped out, it doesn’t say melo. he beat out… BRUCE BOWEN by like 60,000 votes. somebody at slam please get on this mystery!

  • clapzilla

    How The Hell Did Bruce Bowen Get To Third?!? I Would’ve Assumed That Most NBA Fans Forgot Bowen Was Playing. Seriously, WTF? Ahead of Dirk? Ahead of Melo? Ahead of Artest & Pau? Was There A Glitch In Voting? This Is Way More Disturbing Than Yi & Ridnour. Seriously, Who Voted For Bruce Bowen? Anyways, Dirk Should’ve Started. Should’ve Been Him, Duncan, And Melo & Pau As Reserves Because It’s Been A Down Year For West Forwards.
