First off, let me say I think it's ridiculous. As much as I hate KG, he is arguably the best at his position on both ends in the game...

LMAO! I want nothing more than for Yi to be voted in as a starter.

1. KG gets screwed over.

2. NBA gets a reality check on how bad of an idea it is to have fans vote.

The whole voting thing in China is becoming really annoying. I mean YI? Are you kidding me?

Every player is better then him on that list, he should be at the bottom with Beasley

That is what I am saying.

It's wrong to put Yi in front of Garnett. GET REAL!!!

Whats really going to piss me off though is that a player like this is going to get to the all star game while Pau Gasol might very well not make the all star game.

It could definitely happen.

Yeah I've been against the fans voting for a long time. The players are the ones who should be voting for the All-Star starters. Make it so they can't vote themselves or teammates in and it would be much more just and interesting.

They should have 3 votes:

1. Fans
2. Coaches
3. Players

They should be able to gain the mass' selection for each AS.

It's the All- STAR game. Notice the word STAR is in it?

Star implies popularity. If popularity is determined by one's nationality, so be it. I've never taken the game seriously. It's meant for fun.

i've heard that they've been shaving off Yao votes for years... there's a distinct possibility that Yi could have way more votes than what they're showing. the fan vote is bull[expletive] anyway.

Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

You call yourselves Laker fans... this is disgusting...

My lineup was

Fish-Kob-Odom-Gasol-AB

No way the NBA allows Yi to start over KG. I GUARANTEE that they will rig it if it comes to that... the NBA is not retarded.

Stupid maybe.

But not retarded.
