My 2009 NBA All-Star Ballot
The annual NBA All-Star game will be held on February 19th in Phoenix, AZ. Here are my picks for East/West starters.
Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics PG
Rondo is the real deal. Serious PG skills on a veteran squad.
Joe Johnson, Atlanta Hawks G
Joe Johnson has made the Atlanta Hawks a contender. Enough said.
Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic C
If I started a franchise today and I had to pick my center, this guy is a no-brainer.
Kevin Garnett, Boston Celtics F
My favorite NBA player is still living his rebirth in the league. He is playing the best basketball of his career right now.
LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers F
The future star of 41 games a year at Madison Square Garden is simply put playing the best basketball of his short career/best basketball on the planet, let alone the league.
Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets PG
Sorry Jason Kidd and Steve Nash, you have officially been dethroned.
Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers G
The second best player in the league right now next to LBJ23.
Shaquille O'Neal, Phoenix Suns C
A) I do NOT want to see Yao Ming start (or even play for that matter)
B) Kobe and Shaq reunite for what could be the last time ever.
Amare Stoudemire, Phoenix Suns F
Amare is quietly averaging 21.8 pts and 8.5 rebs a game on a team that is about to be blown up.
Pau Gasol, Los Angeles Lakers F
Nearly forgotten in the city of Memphis, Pau is producing in his first full season as a Laker.
