NBA Removes "Center" From All Star Game Ballot

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 It just seemed a little outdated and didn't represent the way our game has evolved.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." 

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.
