    I think you've hit the nail of the head for me. It needs to either be a fun fan thing, or a serious legacy thing; I can't take it seriously as both.

    If it's a serious legacy thing, I think participation should be voted on only by the coaches, for the top players in the league regardless of conference, or position. The coaches are the only ones I vaguely trust. The fans, media, league, and refs even are all starfuckers.

    If it's a fun fan thing, stop using it to rate players careers, HoF worthiness, and the like. Fans just vote for who they like, not for who they think the best players in the league are. I always vote for all the Australian players, and the Kiwi if I can fit him in (got to look after my little bros). I've even voted for Nate "Outback Shaq" Jawai FFS!

    3 out of 4 #2 vote getters will not be all-stars.

    I have my doubts. Players love DWade. No way players will let Luka get in. DRose, I'm iffy about.

    All this, considering there is some sorta transparency or validity to this voting breakdown.

    I just posted this in another thread, but thought it was more appropriate here.

    Hilarious. Enjoy!



    Competing for all-star votes I guess. Awesome!

    I have to say, for a team that was owned by one of the pioneers of microsoft and technology was at the forefront of a lot of their in house stuff (at one time), the quality of this video is lacking.

    You have to remember that this is just the fan vote. Players and media also will be involved in the voting and hopefully brings it back to reality.
