Paul, Al two all stars are coming in tomorrow show them you are deserving.

South Jordan, UT

Nobody deserves to be an All Star. Too many missed free throws, stupid turnovers. Al plays good against bad teams.

When you have Alridge, Love, Griffin, Duncan, Pau Gasol, Dirk, it's going to be extremely hard for Millsap to make it.

I actually thought the biggest snub was Rudy Gay, but then you have to wonder, then who do you take out??

Nash is deserving, Parker is, Westbrook is...so overall the coaches got it right. The East reserves are not as great.

Well Paul, Sorry for the snub you have deserved to be an All Star for a few years now. Do what you L. Tech guys do when you get snubbed, rip um up tommorow.

DWill doesn't need a Jazz uniform to be an AllStar!

Milsaps play has tapered off quite a bit lately, ( so has the Jazz )or he would have been on there. If he could have just made a strong push in the two weeks prior to the selection he would have made it.

Only dirk doesn't deserve it. (Just for this year)


No suprise to me. While Al and Paul have shown moments of greatness they have been way to inconsitent. After watching the games on TV this week it is time to move Milsap to the three, Hayword to the two and give Favors the minuets!!!

I believe that the NBA is making a big mistake by not having one representative from each team on the squad. Major league baseball does that. I know that there are number restrictions but fan appeal is important.

Since there are no all- start this year I thought I would make this list for fun. This is for Jazz history

PG-John Stockton
SG-Deron Williams
SF-Pistol Pete
PF-Adrian Dantley
C-Karl Malone

Not so all star team

PG-Jason Hart
SG-Rusty LaRue
SF-Adam Keefe
PF-Curtis Borchardt
C-Grrrrreg Ostertag

So I know some players would be out of position but Stockton, Williams and Pistol Pete on the floor with Dantley and Malone. That would be a fun team to watch, even if for one game. Impossible, but fun to think about.

Just because players on a team are prominent and are scoring, that doesn't give them any credentials for being on an allstar team. There are a lot of players left off of this year's NBA Allstar team. How about Pau Gasol? He's is a superior player compared with his brother Marc Gasol of Memphis in my humble opinion. It's largely a beauty contest about who the fans want to see and how many votes are being cast. I think this year's game is going to be one of those who cares to watch it anyway games. I could care less myself. The game has declined in popularity and meaning over the years. The players themselves have little interest. It's merely a dunk fest and zero defense. Boring.

How many of these All-Stars are on teams that are below .500? Quite a few.

Cedar Hills, UT

The Jazz traded their stars away. Williams was a legit all-star and Boozer ... maybe not a star but at least a consideration some years. Now the Jazz are star-poor. Decent journeyman players but no real stars which is the reason why they will miss the playoffs again this year. You get what you pay for in the NBA.

@ Portland Trailblazers

You finally broke the silence. You have not talked as much smack later. Portland is not looking so hot any more eh? The Jazz are rebuilding, and your great Trailblazers are not very high over .500 What happened?

Ivins, UT

Boozer has made the all star team before, but I'll take Millsap over Boozer in a heartbeat.

Richfield, UT

I will watch the Rookie+2nd year player game and the dunk contest if Evans is in it, nothing else.

The Jazz are young and have players that have the potential to be on the allstar team in the future. In two or three years several players will be in contention to make the allstar team. I like what the future holds for the Jazz, time will tell but there is talent. We need a good shooting, young aggressive point guard, hopefully we can get GS's draft pick and find one in this draft.
