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.
