Waiters and the All-Star Game

I know the season has yet to be underway, but I'm wondering how you guys feel about Waiters making it to the All-Star Game?

They pick things a little differently now with the Backcourt players and front-court players as opposed to positional players but i think Waiters has a chance.

Lets say, like last year, they select 5 backcourt players ... I can see only three being a definitive "lock".

1.Rose

2.Wade

3.Irving

That leaves two spots. Rondo can make it based on popularity alone, but if the Celtics bring him back too soon he could struggle. Deron Williams can steal a spot but I think that would be difficult to do against John Wall and his rising popularity at this point. That being said, I can't see THAT many PG's making it without throwing some two-guards in there. Now let's look at the the two-guard position if there's only one spot open and they prefer another 2-man instead of another PG. (A back-court of Wall, Irving, Rose, Rondo, and Wade...to me..makes little sense.)

2-Guards-

Lou Williams, Bradley, Joe Johnson, Demar D, Victor Oladipo, Henderson, Stephenson, Butler, Mayo, Shumpert, JR Smith, Turner, Beal, and Waiters.

I think I'd give the nod to Waiters over all of those players except JR Smith (only if he starts), and the dark-horse Oladipo.

Waiters plays better than all those players and has redefined his game only his second year in the league. Beal is good source of competition as the Wall/Beal Kyrie/Waiters rivalry is about to ramp up big time in the Eastern Conference.

So what do you guys think?

If Dion averages around 19ppg 6apr 4rpg shooting 56% from the field, as I predict him to, will he be the second 2-guard behind Wade? Or will they opt for Rondo and a PG heavy All-Star rotation or go with a veteran like Joe Johnson to show Brooklyn some love?

I'd like to see this 12-man roster on the All-Star Team for the East:

  1. Rose/Irving/Wall
  2. Wade/Waiters
  3. Lebron/George
  4. Melo/Noah
  5. Lopez/Hibbert/Drummond

(Injury backups would be Horford, Rondo, and Bosh)

Chime in!!

P.S. I just LOVE that we have a 19-year old on our team in Karasev. That is not sarcasm. I LOVE the kid.
