Results from the third round of Fan Voting for the 2013 NBA All Star Game are in and confirms that thousands of NBA fans are still completely out of their minds. The NBA is doing a great disservice to its fans by allowing them to vote for the starting All Stars. Some of these people on this list shouldn’t even be on the NBA’s second team, let alone, first
There are certain people who shouldn’t be any where near this discussion because of injury. Then there are people who have been kind of injured but have been playing lately and just haven’t been showing up, i.e. Deron Williams. It makes me sick to my stomach that Andrew Bynum, Dwight Howard, Jeff Green, Dirk (injury), Amar’e (injury), and Metta Peace even get to smell this list. The only reason why Kobe should be on this list is because he’s still leading the league in scoring. Had it not been for that, no Laker should be on the list.
Hold your breath…or don’t. The voting results are after the break.
