Will This Be The Year Deron Williams Finally Makes The All-Star Team?

Simple question - yes or no?

It's hard to believe that someone of his talent still hasn't made the team. Will he finally get in this year?

Yeah, I think the coaches will feel obligated to put him on, though the fans won't pick him.

Hmm, (Kobe,Roy,Paul,Nash,Parker,Manu,Billups,Ellis,Terr y,Mayo off the top of my head) there is alot of competetion at the guard spot in the west, talent wise he should make one and soon, but i dont think it will be this year

I think that Kobe, Roy and Paul are all givens. Everyone else is not a sure thing. I think D-Will has a better chance at making it this season than Manu, Billups, Ellis, Terry & Mayo. I think Nash & Parker are the only two that could possibly get in his way.

If he stays healthy, I'm gonna say yes. He'll earn it.

If the Jazz trade Boozer for scraps, there's a good chance that they'll struggle in the Western Conference. A guard from a team may earn a spot over Williams simply because his team is performing better.

Seeing as how when completely healthy he and Paul are a legit discussion I don't see why not..he just needs to be healthy.

I'll probably vote for him and Kobe/Roy for the guard spots

I think it will be. Playing in a smaller market has hurt him as he isn't as popular as guys like Parker, Nash, Manu, and Billups who he is better than but plays the same position. It hurts him in the fan voting, but I think this is the year he finally makes it.

Nuggets will have a better record than Jazz, Chauncey will get in before Deron

That would be a likely scenario but to be hones that would be a travesty IMO (and i'm a Chauncey fan). Deron has more than paid his due, and will put up better numbers than Billups (not to mention he is a better player at this point). If Deron stays healthy it would be a shame if he doesn't make the AS game.

He's deserved to be on the team for the last two years, hopefully they can finally get it right.
