Posted by Jo$h on January 7, 2010

Western Conference

Forwards: Carmelo Anthony (Den) 1,568,259; Dirk Nowitzki (Dal) 826,130; Tim Duncan (SA) 776,225; Pau Gasol (LAL) 754,070; Kevin Durant (OKC) 556,847; Trevor Ariza (Hou) 504,725; Luis Scola (Hou) 437,944; Shawn Marion (Dal) 295,310; Ron Artest (LAL) 266,554; Lamar Odom (LAL) 194,567; LaMarcus Aldridge (Por) 177,663.

Guards: Kobe Bryant (LAL) 1,793,782; Tracy McGrady (Hou) 746,625; Steve Nash (Pho) 744,250; Chris Paul (NO) 701,417; Aaron Brooks (Hou) 443,369; Jason Kidd (Dal) 429,720; Chauncey Billups (Den) 310,281; Deron Williams (Utah) 285,185; Manu Ginobili (SA) 261,107; Brandon Roy (Por) 257,231; Tony Parker (SA) 248,951.

Centers: Amar’e Stoudemire (Pho) 1,304,470; Andrew Bynum (LAL) 743,182; Nene (Den) 261,295; Marc Gasol (Mem) 217,675; Antonio McDyess (SA) 157,346; Al Jefferson (Min) 146,773; Greg Oden (Por) 136,388; Marcus Camby (LAC) 121,981; Andris Biedrins (GS) 102,095; Mehmet Okur (Utah) 96,897; Emeka Okafor (NO) 94,685; Spencer Hawes (Sac) 31,767.

So based on these results, its pretty safe to say that the East will be starting:
Lebron
D-Wade
Kevin Garnett
Allen Iverson
Shaq

While the only players out West that look to be guaranteed a start are:
Kobe
Carmelo
Amar’e Stoudemire

Dirk looks like he should be in there, but Tim Duncan is only about 50,000 votes behind and Pau Gasol about 70,000. A strong surge from either keeps the possibility of an upset open.

As of right now, Tracy McGrady is in a position to start, however, Steve Nash should overtake him by the time voting ends as he only trails McGrady by about 2,000 votes and Chris Paul trails McGrady by about 45,000 votes.

Obviously, the biggest controversy here is the positions of Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady who’s overwhelming fan bases may just get them in there. As of today, Iverson has played just 13 games and McGrrady just 6. This means that a combined 20 games will take 2 starting positions in the league’s most premier event. Now while AI and T-Mac gave the fans many memorable all star memories in the 00s, their spots would be better served to go to other deserving players. And to be fair, I’m all for fan voting, but if both of these players start, moreso McGrady, who probably wouldn’t be able to give more than 10 minutes of action anyway, it makes a mockery of the entire system.

The 2010 NBA All Star Game is Sunday, Feb 14.
