Well when your holding a playoff spot in the west, don't you figure somebody from the team should be on?
I know nobody is doing great for them, but it would make sense. I say walker will end up on it

Not neccesarily true. Nobody on Houston really deserves to be there but Ming will be there anyway and Francis because of voting. Memphis either. Seattle is a game out and no one out there is having an all star year

a guy wont be selected by the coaches into the all star game with missing the first 7 weeks of the season
Then Elton Brand should be penalized also for being hurt. A guy who hasn't missed 13 games, like Antoine Walker, should be heavily considered over Brand, if injuries penalize you.

Brand didnt miss nearly as much a s Allen
True, but you can't say Ray Allen isn't worthy of the all star game and then say that Elton Brand's injury doesn't effect his all-star status. Brand did miss 13 games, and a guy like Walker, who I mentioned because that is what this thread is about, or a guy like Andrei Kirilenko, who has played every game, and lead his team to a beter record.

Basically, Brand has played great, but he missed time too, and there is no way he should make it over Kirlenko, or even Zach Randolph. Since you bring up the fact that Brand hasn't nearly missed as much time as Ray Allen has, the same can be said about Kirilenko and Brand.

Has Walker really been so good that people are saying he's the Mav most deserving of the game? Dirk may not be having as good of a season as last year, but just by the numbers he's still above anyone else on the team. Maybe not heads and shoulders, but other than in APG (where Walker has a clear advantage), he's pretty much equal or better:

That is sure true. Yet, you know what is really sick? Walker or Dirk will probably get in the the all-star game and Zach Randolph will not. And Zach is putting up better numbers than both of them. He is one of only 5 players averaging 20/10.

I disagree with this.
Walker is putting up assists and rebounds and averging 16 plus points on a team where he has to share the ball with 4 other guys all averging 15 or more points a game.

I don't think you will see many players putting up the numbers Walker (and Dirk too) are putting up where they have to share the ball with 4 other guys with those numbers.
The Lakers are about it and they only have 4 guys total.
