    Cs need to be in the whirlpool not playing.....

    Even though they have the best record in the east, they suffer from team ball versus a super star trying to carry the team and has great stats.  The Celtics do not need a 20 plus point scorer...spread the wealth and rack up victories....

    It's all about BANNER 18...not starting or playing in an All Star game!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are right! The "ALL STAR" game is a joke! Who cares? Just the Lemmings that buy over priced shirts so the NBA can change uniforms to sell more shirts! Wise up Lemmings!

    I hope the coaches realize that Ray Allen is an All-Star this year. There are those who say that Raymond Felton should be in and not Ray. I say, NO WAY!

    KG and Rondo were in the lead until KG got injured.

    Both New York and Chicago media outlets sponsored massive efforts to support Amare and Rose. It seemed to work. Boston made no such effort that I saw.

    Its true that NY and Chicago have larger populations, so it should be easier to inspire a larger vote, but the lack of enthusiasm in Boston was underwelming.

    I think that it would be great to see the entire staring five of the Celtics play as reserves in the All-star game, with Shaq included.

    I agree with the starters.  I thought Rose and Amare would eventually get more votes than Rondo and KG.  Those guys are having great seasons.

    I do think the Celtics 4 will be named as reserves.  I think Shaq will not because Al Horford is more deserving.

    I was looking at the votes and noticed that Joe Johnson with that huge contract he got from Atlanta will probably NOT even make the All Star team.  Amazing.

    New York made a big push for AS with much advertising.  Told us to vote twice a day.  What a joke!!!!!!

    I bet they'll find a way to get shaq in there just based on popularity.  Plus, they want to subtly advertise the finals, which will feature the long-awaited rematch of shaq vs kobe.

    It is a popularity contest and people can vote more than once.

    Yao Ming is either proud or embarrassed that his huge Chinese following gets him elected even when he does not play.

    This is the first time that Amare has beaten KG as a starter in the All Star game. In all those years in the western conference together, it never happened.

    Who says that stats don't matter? It must have been KG.

    Petey the starters are actually the ones that I figured would start. Hard to argue with them either even with the fans doing it. Of course the West is another story. Ridiculous choices.  Just goes to show a popularity contest.

    Actually I wouldn't mind if NONE of the Celtics got chosen. For one I probably wouldn't watch the game. Two it would give the guys a nice break and some much needed rest, Three it would probably supply them with some nice motivation from getting snubbed. Of course we will get between 2-4 players, hopefully all 4.

    jersey fan,

    Do you think that it was because they had not had a starter in the all star game for so many years?

    Yes, absolutely they have been grasping for straws for years since IT ran the show.  Just our announcers alone make me thankful I am a Celtic fan since 1969
    Unless I turn dow the sound very hard to watch.  So thankful for Direct TV and the sports package. That includes NESN and CCNNE.

    I do agree with you about Yao.  He has always been one of my favorite players, but he has been injured for most of the season.   Why would anyone still vote for him?  Who should take his place?  I really hope that Bynum is his replacement on the All-Star team.  What does everyone else think?

    The starters are voted by the fans.  If more people voted, Rondo and KG might have started on the All-Star team.   Just something to think about for next year.  If you feel that the Celtics deserve to play on the All-Star team, you have to vote everyday.   I hope that the Celtics that play in the all-star game, don't play many minutes.  Except for Rondo, the others could use the rest.
