News came about today regarding the NBA All Star Game voting. The decision to eliminate the "Center" position from the ballot, leaving fans to vote for 3 Forwards instead of the 2 Forwards and 1 Center. Somehow we never reported that they eliminated the Power and Small forward positions. Doesn't surprise us since Lebron is ranked in the top 5 for every position available, including 6th man. Anyways, I digress. Below is our main man Stu on the decision.
"It makes sense," Stu Jackson said. "It made sense to our Competition Committee. Having a center is the only specific position that was singled out on the ballot. It just seemed a little outdated and didn't represent the way our game has evolved. By the same token, it also affords the same opportunity, if you have two good centers in a given year, pick 'em both. They both can be selected. Which is impossible right now."realGM
Now if only we can find a way to prevent Jeremy Lin, or any player not deserving, from making the All Star Game because of fan voting, than we will have a game I will actually care about.
