NBA All-Star Game 2022 Voting

Coming down to the time for All-Star teams to shape up. Who are you voting for? Here’s my serious(ly boring) picks with a little homerism in picking Draymond:

I applaud you for voting for DeMar DeRozan. Thank you.

I present this update without comment.

Starters have been announced:

WEST:

  • Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)
  • LeBron James (LA Lakers)
  • Andrew Wiggins (Golden State Warriors)
  • Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
  • Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies)

EAST:

  • Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers)
  • Kevin Durant (Brooklyn Nets)
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks)
  • DeMar DeRozan (Chicago Bulls)
  • Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks)

In case you missed it, THIS:

Color me amazed. Didn’t expect that Wiggo would get the fan vote, and definitely not enough to get the starter nod after factoring in media and player vote.

What a time to be alive. Andrew Wiggins is a starter in the All-Star Game.

Voting results, including player and media voting:

People are losing their shit, but the absurd fan voting “only” got him to #3 for West Frontcourt (behind LeBron and Jokic, and PG, AD, and Draymond coming in #4, 5, and 6).

He couldn’t have made it if he wasn’t also the #5 in Player vote and #6 in Media vote.

Here’s the ranking for West Frontcourt for Player voting:

  1. LeBron
  2. Jokic
  3. Draymond
  4. Gobert
  5. Wiggins
  6. Ayton
  7. KAT
  8. PG
  9. Ingram
  10. JJJ

Same for Media:

  1. LeBron and Jokic tied
  2. LeBron and Jokic tied
  3. Gobert
  4. Draymond
  5. KAT
  6. Wiggins
  7. PG
  8. Ingram
  9. A slew of guys tied

The way I read it, if Wiggins “stole” anyone’s spot, he stole Draymond’s. Or Gobert’s.

Here’s the weighted score rankings:

  1. LeBron: 1
  2. Jokic: 1.75
  3. Wiggins: 4.25
  4. Draymond: 4.75
  5. PG: 5.75
  6. Gobert: 6.25
  7. KAT: 7
  8. AD: 8.25
  9. Carmelo: 8.75 (LOL, #7 in Fans, #12 in Players, 0 Media votes)
  10. Ayton: 8.75
  11. Ingram: 9.75

Wiggins as a starter… who would’ve thought

Yeah, while I considered him a candidate to make the team, I would’ve put Dray, Gobert, and KAT ahead of him.

Earlier in the season, maybe Barnes.

Kind of wish he didn’t get the starter nod because he’s getting shit on a lot. If he was a coach selection for the bench, the narrative would be mostly complimentary, I believe.

derrick rose is always in the all star voting every year. Drose also neck to neck with Kyrie says a lot.
Love to see :rose: too.

On the other hand I wish I can say that for Gobert, man is a beast but nobody fw him :rofl:

Derozan ranked #1 for east guards, but 2k has him SF/PF

Draymond said he won’t be playing for sure, so I wonder who gets chosen by Silver as an injury replacement.

With PG out, could be AD, Ayton, or Ingram.

KD is also going to be out, and should come down to Jarrett Allen, Miles Bridges, Bam Adebayo, or Pascal Siakam.

I want so bad for KD to be a world class troll and pick Harden with his first pick tonight.

LBJ gets first pick and I am really wondering who he picks and what will be made of his choice by the NBA Gossipmonger Collective.

Now I kind of wish that AD and Russ were both named reserves.

Picks:

  1. LBJ: Giannis
  2. KD: Embiid
  3. LBJ: Curry
  4. KD: Ja
  5. LBJ: DeRozan
  6. KD: Tatum
  7. LBJ: Jokic
  8. KD: Trae + Wiggins (because KD isn’t playing)
  9. KD: Booker
  10. LBJ: Luka
  11. KD: KAT
  12. LBJ: Darius Garland
  13. KD: Zach Lavine
  14. LBJ: CP3
  15. KD: Dejounte Murray
  16. LBJ: Jimmy
  17. KD: Middleton
  18. LBJ: Donovan Mitchell
  19. KD: LaMelo
  20. LBJ: VanVleet
  21. KD: Gobert
  22. LBJ: Harden
Team LeBron Team Durant
LeBron James Joel Embiid
Giannis Antetonkoumpo Ja Morant
Steph Curry Jayson Tatum
DeMar DeRozan Trae Young
Nikola Jokic Andrew Wiggins
Luka Doncic Devin Booker
Darius Garland Karl-Anthony Towns
CP3 Zach Lavine
Jimmy Butler Dejounte Murray
Donovan Mitchell Khris Middleton
Fred VanVleet LaMelo Ball
James Harden Rudy Gobert

No talk about the day’s trades, KD wouldn’t give an update on his condition, but the TNT crew were yukking it up as Harden stayed on the board, and when it came down to Harden, Gobert, or VanVleet for LBJ to pick, Charles begged LBJ “just make him sweat it out. Take anybody else.”

And LBJ obliged.

Then as only Harden and Gobert were left on the board and LBJ covering his laughing with a clipboard, good guy Kenny fed KD the suggestion that he needed more size on his team.
