As much as I love Kevin Garnett and acknowledge everything he has done for the Celtics’ organization, to call him an All-Star this season is a travesty. Read more »

I can sympathize why Boston Celtics’ guard Ray Allen is a bit furious over the NBA All-Star Voting currently. There were players like Allen Iverson and Amare Stoudemire, in which many fans have said that they shouldn’t be worthy of accepting this accolade. But the athlete that beams mostly towards my mind is Houston Rockets’ star (well, at least he used to be, I think) Tracy McGrady.
It amazes me that he is starting on the Western All-Star team. How? The voting system for the All-Star game with the National Basketball Association allows the fans to vote respectively. But Ray Allen argues. After seeing those players might make the team, might even start, he considers that the NBA should allow the fans to vote fifty-percent and let the media and all of them do the other fifty-percent. I couldn’t agree more, in fact.
But why? Why allow Tracy McGrady to even make the team at all? I mean, do these stats really even mean All-Star worthy:
3.2 PPG, 1 APG, and 0.8 RPG.
What’s the deal with that? I mean, if the NBA allows that, they might as well let Kwame Brown be the starting center for this season’s Eastern Conference All-Stars. Seriously. And also, another reason: T-MAC HAS ONLY PLAYED SIX FREAKING GAMES! Seriously, are you kidding me? That’s just bull. And back to Kwame Brown for a second…this guy is doing better than him: 3.9 PPG and 3.8 RPG in 28 games…
But nevermind that, the NBA really needs to alternate the rules of the All-Star Voting. Right now, after observing what I have for this year’s roster with both the Eastern and Western Conference, it’s not right. Ray Allen, thank you for speaking your mind.
We tremendously need David Stern to listen to you.
I can’t afford to see guys like this making the All-Star team.
