    LaMarcus Aldridge should've made it over both of those guys. Duncan has average production and Love's team is last place in the west. Aldridge has carried the Blazers on his back through all the injuries.

    Seniority rule still applies. Coaches know Duncan has 4 rings and Aldridge hasn't gotten past the 1st round of the playoffs.

    Re: No Love!!!

    So now the all-star game is picked based on rings and past years performance? Weird, I thought it was for the current season. If that's the case, I didn't realize Blake Griffin had won all those playoff series' either.

    love was not screwed. nba better than the nfl and others do the BEST job of emphasizing WINNING! when you have the best record in the league and your big can play both pf and CENTER, you pick him. they deserve at least 2 guys on that team. parker's position is alo overloaded. that team still lives off the soul of duncan. he's the real straw. gasol also is on a winning team that currently owns a ring. i would even put ODOM ahead of love since the game is in LA. most likely because he is white and god knows we dont have enough of those running around the league at that elite level, he will be selected to replace yao! if celts had losing rec, are we gettig 4 guys named? no! heck had shaq not been injured and so ineffective lately, he too could have been going!

    Kevin Love can still make the West All Stars if David Stern picks him to replace the injured Yao Ming.

    I also hope that Kevin Love is selected by Stern to replace Yao.  He definitely deserves to be an all-star this year.

    Yeah, when your team is 10-35 you really deserve an all-star birth. Send Aldridge to LA!!!

    Winning has nothing to do with the All Star Game, the MVP yes but not the all star game. Love should have made it over Duncan.

    I agree!  There was an earlier post about Griffith vs Love and I stated my position that Love was getting great stats on a losing team and his efforts rarely resulted in a win.......so he's not an allstar if he can't rebound and score when it counts - at the time of the game where he actually produces wins.  I received a LOT of negative feedback about how the wins didn't matter - only his great year.   I believe that Aldridge and Griffith produce many more wins and are more competitive against their opponents at critical times of the game.

    There's a lot of talk about Duncan not being an Allstar.  Well, take a test: You have just this season, only, to take either Duncan or Love.  You get to put either of them on the Spurs and keep the rest of the team the same and its no impact on next year...its a one year decision.   Who do you take?  Tell me if you think that Love will play the defense, get the critical boards, make the passes, and defend against Centers AND Power Forwards.  Tell me that you think the Spurs would have the best record in the league if they had no Duncan (the only true big man on the team) and they had Love, instead.

    [QUOTE]LaMarcus Aldridge should get that spot..if you have a losing record you should not be on an All-Star team just my opinion..this includes Griffin and Love.. As far as Love...I do give him credit for all of those rebounds..but to me it just means that his team misses alot..

    Yeah, No way MJ should have been on the All-Star game in his rookie year...the Bulls had a losing record.

    Re: No Love!!!

    Markes8336, I always love it when people ignore facts to get their opinion out.  Yours is so far off I have to correct you.  Excuse me for being long but I want to back up my opinion with some facts.

    1. Its not whether or not you have a winning record.  We are trying to tell you its HOW MUCH YOU WIN!!!!   38 and 44 is a losing record but you've done something.  18 and 64 is so awful you don't deserve to be an allstar!  (those numbers are illustrative).

    2. Real numbers:  
      a. Kevin Love's team is next to last in the league with 11 wins more than half way through the season.  Only Cleveland is worse.  
      b. The Clippers have won 19, are 6 games out of the playoff hunt, and have gone 14 and 8 in their last 22 games.  
      c. Portland is in the 8th playoff spot at 26 and 23 and have beaten teams like San Antonio, Orlando, Dallas, and Utah.
      So, who's making more of a difference and should be rewarded.....Love, Griffith, or Aldridge?

    3. When Jordan came into the league in his rookie year, his team was 38 and 44 and made the playoffs after missing it the year before.

    4. Griffith's team won 29 games and 19 games the two years before he got there. Now they've won 19 already half way through the season and 14 of their last 22 (and have a remote chance at making the playoffs).

    5. Love's team won 22 games the year before he got there.  After Love, they won 24 games, 15 games, and now 11 so far this year.  They're getting WORSE!!!  They have NO chance of getting anywhere near anything but the worst record in the league!!!

    So, who makes a difference on their team winning (the KEY measure of success):  Aldridge and Blake!   Now, please stop bringing up Jordan because I've showed you above how he made a difference in winning and deserved all star recognition his rookie year.

    The point is:  Love is a wonderful player and teammate who I would love for the Celtics to have.  He is NOT an allstar in that he does NOT make enough of a difference to his team winning.  He did not get shafted by not being selected - he's just a very good role player.   If you go by stats, you'd think Love is better than Garnett, Gasol, Duncan, Aldridge, and close to Dirk (better in Boards).  But, he's NOT because stats just say you're getting unimportant rebounds on a losing team.   He's not making the team win.  Wolves are WORSE now than before him.  When he's leading a team to victory even 40% of the time, he can be considered an all star.  Until then, he's just a fantastic role player (who I'd love to have on the Celtics).

    Here we go again.  Its just everyones opinion.  I wish the coaches could have voted for the last spot. Got the feeling it would have been Odom or Love though.  Hard to argue with either guys numbers.  Also have the feeling Stern will put Odom there though. Either way Aldridge doesn't deserve it in my opinion. What has he done?  Of course he has a better supporting cast than Love does.

    About Aldridge:  Either way Aldridge doesn't deserve it in my opinion. What has he done?

    He's averaged 21.3 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.3 blocks, and kept his team in the playoff hunt while Roy, Camby, Przybilla, and Marks all miss significant time.  I'd say he's doing something.

    Re: No Love!!!

    OneOnOne, you say what has Aldridge done? I hope you're kidding. If not, then my only conclusion is that you follow absolutely no part of the NBA other than the Celtics. Portland has lost its franchise player (Roy) for a vast majority of the year, one of the best rebounders and defenders in the NBA (Camby), the future of their franchise (Oden), their best overall interior defender (Przybilla), and they are not far off their win pace from last year. Not to mention their backup PF (Pendergraph) and first round draft choice (Elliot Williams).

    But yeah, Aldridge hasn't done anything. Its not like he's averaged 26pts and 11 reb since the day Roy went out. What a scrub Aldridge is.

    Kevin Love was named to the all star game.  Congratulations to Love.  I don't agree with it, but I will congratulate him like all the other all stars.

    Posted by CVD2312[/QUOTE]u guys have to stop being NAIVE! game is in LA, all things being almost equal, you go with the phenom BLAKE! who doesnt look forward to seeing him be crazy in the all-star game? if game was in portland, some how aldrisge would b there. timmy is still the soul of the team with best record in the league and yep.. thats right now! i already posted a week ago that love would make the team.. again, get real, he happens to be white and leading the league in rebounds and up there in double-doubles.. his race is an overriding factor in this case. if aldridge was white, would have a better case. this is not racist, its racial... racism doesnt always exist but racialism does!
