Why do they give the people a chance to vote for Kobe, Rondo, Nash and Rose?

Not sure what you're getting at? What do they need to change?

I know Rose will be out. Not sure about Rondo or Nash because I haven't been following. But Kobe is already back with 2 months to improve and get back to form, a little bit.

How have they earned those votes so far though?

They haven't, I'm sure. I agree, if that was rigas' point.

But it's what the fans want to see. If they want to see Kobe play, let him play. It's not like they allow fans to vote for playoff teams.


Maybe I'm speaking without the info here, but what happens if someone is voted in and is injured? Don't the coaches choose his replacement? Or is the next highest voted in put into the starting lineup?

The fact that people put weight in allstar selections, and the fact fans can vote repeatedly world wide is silly.

The fact that guys like rondo have not played a single game, or that Kobe is so far ahead with only playing 2 games (a soso and a pretty bad game), the fact the china has Jeremy Lin ahead of harden, Westbrook, or Parker or name it. Steve Nash is in there???
The whole fan vote is just dumb!

If that's what the fans want to see then that's fine, but it's not really an all-star game, it's a popularity contest.

I think the reserves are picked by coaches and injury replacements are picked by Stern.

Reserves are picked by coaches and a reserve is picked by stern but the actual replacement starter is picked by the allstar coach out of the allstar picks.

Next results will be a little bit better (i hope) now people have seen the votes.
with the exception of Jeremy Lin, Bet Chinese people put their alarm clock as a reminder to vote for him.
I didn't even read the voting rules? How many times can you vote? Rule should be only once per day.
