    Stupid fans just see some flashy dunks and decide to vote for him. Although.. it will make the All Star game a lot more entertaining if Griffin is playing in it..

    Who do you support?
    I'm a Cavs fan man lol

    You?

    NBA ALL STAR 2012

    How can Griffin be starting ahead of Love and Carmelo ahead of Bosh?

    They should just call this ''vote for your favourite player''
    Make that Love > Griffin and Josh Smith > Carmelo, with Bosh as reserve and you've got my support.

    Carmelo Anthony is the most overrated 'Superstar' in basketball.

    Every-team he leaves gets better like the Nuggets now and the Knicks were better before they traded him in. Amar'e has gone **** with Anthony in the team.

    If Melo was any humble, he'd refuse to start and instead hand his place to someone else

    All star matchups, IMO:

    Rose > CP3 - East

    Kobe > Wade - West

    Durant > Melo - West

    Lebron >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> > Griffin - East

    Howard > Bynum - East

    East > West

    If not Wade > Kobe, then at least Wade = Kobe

    Na, I'll stick with Kobe > Wade, especially with the seasons they've both had and Kobe's tendency to pwn in the All star game.

    Rose is 5-0 against CP3 and we're talking about the matchup in the all star game afterall.

    As for who's the better PG or player, I cba to argue. But even then I'd still go with Rose.

    I prefer CP3. He is a true point guard like Magic was and i like players like that. Derrick Rose just doesnt come across as a true point guard for me. He reminds me of Allen Iverson.

    Rose is still a great player though.

    I am not saying he is a bad player, he clearly is not. But he is overrated when people put him 'up there' with the likes of Kobe, Lebron, Wade etc.. Like Charles Barkley was saying, he is too one dimensional. His post season record is awful as well. People call James a chocker but Melo has only been out of the 1st round of play-offs 1 time in 8 years!

    He is a scorer but his percentages are poor for a player that always hogs the ball. Durant is a superior player.

    You did a '>>>>>>>>>' for Lebron being way better than Griffin.. but you don't think Howard is way better than 'bum kneee' Bynum?
