Re: NBA All-Star Voting: 1st Ballot Returns

Saying you have to lead a team to the playoffs to be a star is kinda crocky. It's not a player's fault if they're playing around rubbish. Was LeBron not a star early in his career? Is Irving not already a star? Hell, Eric Gordon has a max contract.

It's an especially unfair stipulation to place on a young guy like Love, playing for a Kahn-run team, in a deep conference like the West.

That's fair. No ones giving Kyrie shit for not making it, and no one ever says Wall isn't good because Washington is a constant shit show.

Re: NBA All-Star Voting: 1st Ballot Returns

I just hate the idea of these rules based on team performance in order to classify player's ability level.

You're making it a little obvious.
Where am I even attacking Love? I said I don't have a problem with a GM saying that a player isn't a "star" until he leads their team to the playoffs. Which is fair.

Look at your favorite team, now back to mine, mine is better. Deal with it.

No, it's not fair, not when you don't have the necessary tools to do so. One guy can't lead a team to the playoffs by himself, especially in a tough conference like the Western Conference. You of all people should know that.

This is Kyrie's second season and plenty of people say that John Wall isn't good. Just ask Diable.

He has the tools this year, but he was already a star last year. Blake Griffin was a star before CP3 helped him get to the postseason. I'd be fine with people calling Steph Curry a star.
