RedsArmyAdmin December 11, 2008 Uncategorized 4 Comments

The NBA has released the current voting tally for the All-Star game, and the results are not pretty for Celtics fans.

Forwards: LeBron James (Clev) 643,786; Kevin Garnett (Bos) 495,514; Yi Jianlian (NJ) 356,556; Chris Bosh (Tor) 274,195; Paul Pierce (Bos) 153,512; Shawn Marion (Mia) 144,066; Josh Smith (Atl) 59,574; Tayshaun Prince (Det) 56,846; Hedo Turkoglu (Orl) 56,006; Danny Granger (Ind) 49,752; Michael Beasley (Mia) 48,999.

Guards: Dwyane Wade (Mia) 623,311; Allen Iverson (Det) 492,093; Vince Carter (NJ) 236,634; Ray Allen (Bos) 174,155; Jose Calderon (Tor) 124,705; Luke Ridnour (Mil) 123,104; Jameer Nelson (Orl) 116,228; Derrick Rose (Chi) 102,263; Joe Johnson (Atl) 94,847; Devin Harris (NJ) 94, 294; Gilbert Arenas (Wash) 64,450.

Centers: Dwight Howard (Orl) 775;933; Samuel Dalembert (Phi) 116,708; Rasheed Wallace (Det) 88,885; Jermaine O’Neal (Tor) 75,324; Al Horford (Atl) 45,284; Ben Wallace (Clev) 40,799; Andrew Bogut (Mil) 36,479; Zyrdrunas Ilgauskas (Clev) 28,022; Kendrick Perkins (Bos) 24,777; Emeka Okafor (Char) 15,323.

Stop looking for Rondo's name. He didn't make the top 10. The 123,104 people who voted for Luke Ridnour should never be allowed to watch an NBA game again.* The Chinese are clearly under government order to stuff the ballot boxes for Yi Jianlian.

And who are the idiots voting for Allen Iverson? The biggest crime may be that Chris Bosh has 120,00 more votes than Paul Pierce. Did anybody watch the Finals? Holy crap…NBA fans are dumb.

A giant Thank You to Jess Camerato for the tip….

*Editor's Note:  In a previous version of this post, I referred to Ridnour and Yi as teammates. This is not the case. I am a moron.

    All-star voting is complete garbage… always has been, always will.

    How in the fuck does Ridnour have more votes than Rondo?

    Fuel for the fire, I say. Let them be disrespected. Let them fly under the radar. Let the morons remain ignorant. Because the other teams in the league know which team is the best, and they know which players are dominating. When it comes down to the end and the green are collecting another obrien trophy then there won’t be any questions and the all star balloting will seem like the silly distraction it really is. True fans and players alike know that when it comes to awards and accolades, the only things that count are rings and banners. This team couldn’t care less about collecting anything else.

    Rondo not in the top 10 is what it sounds like when doves cry.
