More all-star ballot fun

New readers, please check out the basics before leaving any comments.

A while back I posted who I thought should be on this year's all-star ballot. Recently Ian Levy has written a post about the East's all-star ballot - who is on the list, who should be on the list, but isn't, and who shouldn't be on the list, but is - and several Raptors feature prominently.

Go check it out!

  1. Thanks for the link Devin. I threw this post up on the Raptors Republic message board and got into a little discussion with someone.

    Whether or not any of the Raptors actually deserve to make the All-Star team is a completely separate issue. I think of being on the ballot as a way of giving recognition to players who are productive and work hard. Whether or not Reggie Evans deserves to make to the team, it has to be frustrating that you don't have an opportunity to say "Reggie, you've been kicking tail on the glass and doing everything you can to help the ream win and we appreciate it," by voting for him.

    Making the All-Star team is one level of recognition. Being on the ballot and having the opportunity for your fans to vote for you is another level of recognition. That's the one that I think some of these players deserve.
